Take part in a high-energy game about survival across four University of Cambridge Museums.

Fire Hazard Games and the University of Cambridge Museums team up after the success of ‘Cambridge Codebreakers: The Last Secret’ to bring you Operation Survival. To face a world in crisis, a competition has been set to create the Foundation for the Future, which could help humanity survive the many challenges facing the environment in the coming years. The society is up to the challenge of designing a proposal to the foundation, but only with your help!

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.

It is up to you to decide how we can save the world — or learn to live with the consequences.

Outwit Your Opponents

You'll have competition from up to twenty other teams 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 leader board on your phone, you will know exactly who to watch out for.

Think Quickly, Move Slowly

Operation Survival 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 Polar Museum, The Museum of Zoology, Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Ready? Let's go!

Operation Survival is designed for adults. No prior knowledge of clue-solving is required. You'll need to be comfortable moving around at walking pace for a couple of hours. You can join individually, or as part of a team (up to 6 players), and 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 — we can link you and your friends' bookings so that you can organise your team — or teams — together.

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

By taking part in the game, you agree to the following T&Cs.
Operation Survival is presented by the University of Cambridge Museums in partnership with Fire Hazard Games.
