Chinatown Murder Mystery Tour - It's not a race against the clock to solve the murder because you have more than your own group of friends ie strangers joining you on the tour; you kinda end up waiting for one another to be able to move on to the next 'station' although you or they have already solved the puzzle for a particular station. Character role play was weak towards the end. Game wasn't very challenging either. We basically didn't feel engaged. For $50 a pop, 1.5hrs, we are unlikely to do it again but it was pretty fun if you want a simple stroll around Chinatown.

This review is for the Outdoor Escape Room Game - Chinatown Street Murder. I am a local tourist guide in Singapore and if I give it 5 stars for this experience, you can imagine how much I must have enjoyed it! Our tourist guide was Mr Tan Boon Yick. He brought along Henry, Aunty Geok, Raj and many character and they altogether told many stories about Chinatown. He is engaging and a great game master! I was greatly entertained and not to mention I was at the same time challenged by the puzzles. I didn't have time to solve the murder due to other business commitments. But I managed to do 4 of the 6 checkpoints and they are not easy yet fun! The word fun cannot sum it all, you just have to experience it. I am surprised and I bet you will too by the exceptional execution of this experience. You will not see Chinatown in the same way anymore after this. A great example of local tours for locals!
