Epic Team Adventures Presents an Immersive Puzzle Adventure set in the world of Sherlock Holmes
SEATTLE, WA, March 23, 2017 – On Saturday, May 20, 2017, the ballroom at the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel in downtown Seattle will be transformed into Victorian-era London, as part of the ETA Presents event – Scotland Yard: The Baker Street Affair. A suspicious death on Baker Street has caused quite the panic in the city. Not only is everyone on edge because there is a murderer at large, but there is also the rumor that the neighborhood’s most enigmatic resident, Sherlock Holmes, is implicated as the prime suspect. With Sherlock unavailable to assist in this case, Scotland Yard has turned to a new class of consulting detectives for help.
This backstory sets up an intriguing plot of a classic murder mystery. In this instance, event participants will do much more than turning pages to find out how the story develops. Teams of puzzle enthusiasts and fans of detective mystery stories will use their powers of observation and deduction to suss out the who, how, and why behind the crime. They will interact with the scenes, locations and characters from the story, and experience the tense cat-and-mouse game throughout their investigation.
“Since our story is set in a universe where Sherlock Holmes exists, I want to create a villain that is a worthy adversary like Moriarty is to Sherlock,” said Gaby Weidling, Director of Special Programs at Epic Team Adventures and the lead designer for The Baker Street Affair. “This is a smart criminal that likes to play games.”
Time is of the essence. Teams have only two hours to complete their mission, before the villain gets away and Sherlock is arrested for a crime he did not commit.
“We want to bring the same immersive experience customers have come to expect from puzzle adventures at our Seattle facility to large corporate and public groups,” said Jesse McGatha, Creative Director at Epic Team Adventures. “We will have interactive puzzles, intuitive game flow, and captivating narratives that transport players into a world where they are investigators of this labyrinthine mystery.”’
