For one month only, our epic adventure game Cambridge Codebreakers: The Last Secret is open to families – and kids go free!

*** Please note up to x2 free children tickets claimed with every full paying adult ticket will appear in your basket at full price but will be discounted at checkout before you complete any transaction ***

From fantastic fossils to giant Greek gods, Cambridge Codebreakers: The Last Secret takes you on a high-energy adventure across four University of Cambridge Museums. Now’s your chance to take on other families in this special one-month pilot for ages 8+. Charge your brain cells and get ready to crack our challenging clues.

The adventure begins
The Cambridge Codebreaking Society has recently come into the possession of a curious set of letters. The letters, exchanged between a cryptographer and linguist, span decades. The last references a closely-held secret, but it’s written in an unbreakable code. The code refers to a series of artefacts spread out across space and time. The Society has called upon its finest young and old(er) minds to help them crack the code before the answers are lost forever.

With a live leaderboard, cryptic clues, surprise challenges and roaming characters your team will have to be curious, cooperative and clever to come out on top.

But as the secret behind the code becomes apparent, you'll be faced with a moral choice. Sometimes, is it better not to know?

Outwit Your Opponents
You'll have competition from up to twenty other teams of Codebreakers at the same time. There are bonus points for the first team to crack each clue — and, more importantly, not everybody gets every clue at the same time. Keep an eye out. Follow each other. Lay false trails. Stay alert. With a live leaderboard on your phone, you'll know exactly who to watch out for.

Think Quickly, Move Slowly
Cambridge Codebreakers is based on the hit Citydash game in London — but this time there'll be nobody chasing you (and no running in the museum!). We'll keep the pressure up with twists & turns, surprise clues and timed challenges, but you won't need your running shoes for this one. The game will run across the Fitzwilliam Museum, Museum of Classical Archaeology, Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Ready? Let's go!
This is a special pilot of The Last Secret for family groups with children aged 8+. Each paying adult can book up to two free child tickets. Children must have tickets booked as team members to play the game, and there must be at least 2 adults per each team of 6.

No prior knowledge of codebreaking is required. You'll need to be comfortable moving around at walking pace for a couple of hours and can be as casual or as competitive as you like.The game can be made accessible with some small adjustments and we're very happy to help — please let us know upon booking.

Bring a (charged!) smartphone with a data plan.

We'll send you a link to set up your team, along with full details of where to meet and what to expect!

Organising a group? We make it easy — once you have your first ticket we'll send you a special link so your friends can buy their own and join you.

Any questions, please contact Fire Hazard Games: [email protected] or phone 020 3322 7086
