We have been doing this for over 17 years and we are excited to have you!

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what many do... and you’ll walk away with new friends. You will always have a host to greet you and introduce you to other members of our events.

  • Come alone or with friends, we will set up the teams!
  • Each team will have 90 minutes to find as many clues as they can on the island (clues will be in historical markers, wildlife, tourists, statues and hidden secrets.
  • At the end, each team will end at a specific location to see which group has uncovered the most clues to win prizes!
  • After the prizes are awarded, you can hang with the group and have a bite to eat at one of the food trucks, stay to explore more or head back

The Story: Murder at Skull Manor

This has been a daunting year of dissension and discord among many of the residents of Spider City.

If not, there may be misfortune on the horizon. This is where your story begins.
