Embark on a mission to solve a deadly crime that’s unfolding across the alleys of the Deira and Bur Dubai souks. This exhilarating game combines brain teasers with delicious flavours across Dubai’s hidden gems. It makes for a fantastic team building exercise, unique birthday bash, bachelorette activity or just a fun evening out with friends.

You and your group will be divided up into squads and pitted against the others to crack the case before the bad guys get away! Be prepared for a mission that throws challenging puzzles, cryptic code and delicious discoveries your way.

The mission clues are delivered through a mobile app which is free to download on Android and Apple. Through the duration of the tour, the mission will layer food tastings and historical information with a fictional crime thriller.

This mission, should your team choose to accept it, is one that requires an appetite, competitive spirit, rapid problem-solving skills and a good sense of humour.

We meet at Kanz Jewelry Shop by the Gold Souk. Please be on time, the game will start on time and we don’t wait for latecomers!

Getting to the Meeting Point:

  • Metro: Nearest to the meeting point is Al Ras metro station (green line). Nearest to the ending point is Sharaf DG (green line).
    If you plan to drive, the best place to park is in the paid multi-storey parking next to the Spice Souk and Gold Souk here: https://goo.gl/maps/r5f3MPCxVzLNXJij9
  • There is heavy traffic during peak commute times, especially 5PM and 7PM on weekdays. If your game starts during this time, please budget extra travel time accordingly.
  • Please note that our starting point and ending point for this game are on different sides of the creek. If you park your car in the multi-storey parking mentioned above, you will be able to easily access it after the game by crossing the creek.
    Those coming from Barsha, Marina, Palm Jumeirah and other locations further away from the tour point should plan for traffic delays and leave for the tour accordingly. We recommend speaking with your concierge or checking Google Maps (use the “Arrive by” feature to estimate traffic based on the tour meeting time) – and still adding a buffer for traffic!
