    CODE CRACKING DINNER PARTY

     

    A locked briefcase is given to each team and they need to crack the code to open the case. Once inside a number of paper based observational challenges will test the group’s knowledge and skills.

     

    In-between courses the tables are invited to take part in further code breaking and safe cracking and after dessert a representative, or possibly the whole table, are invited to the stage to take part in the head to head pistol draw competition. The fastest quick draw will then earn the champions award and receive the cash prize for their team. We can also add a stunt such as a room burst to snatch a hostage to really get things going!

     

    Minimum of 20 people.
