Members of The Wingback Society are assembling to investigate paranormal activity in the Museum of London. As Autumn falls, a number of disgruntled ghosts have appeared and the museum staff are getting vexed. Something needs to be done! A silly and slightly spooky expedition through London’s past.

Quest for the Family Ghouls is our Halloween variant of our Raiders of the Lost Archive games. Your team will have 90 minutes to crack the clues, communicate with puzzling poltergeists and solve the museums haunting problem for good. As always there will be a live leaderboard, cryptic clues, surprise challenges and roaming curators. You'll have to think quickly to not only defeat teams of rival adventurers but also to get out of the museum alive!

Accessibility

The Museum of London itself is fully accessible, but the briefing and debriefing normally take place in a nearby venue, which unfortunately is not. We'd love to have you come along and we'll do everything we can - all the gameplay will be fine, but you might miss some of the theatrical bits (or we can recap them for your team elsewhere). Just drop us an email in advance and we'll get it sorted.

Junior Adventurers

Kids are very welcome (and get Concession pricing)! There'll need to be at least one over-18 in each team.

Location

The Museum of London is very happy to have us, but this is not an official MoL event. They have a full program of other events, as well as membership for those who are inspired to discover more!

Language

All of our clues are in English, and you will need a basic grasp of the language in order to play. You do not need to be fluent, but it does help. Please get in touch if you have any language concerns.
