It’s a brand-new outdoor scavenger hunt set up by CluedUpp Games – providing you with an unforgettable family experience! Join with your family, friends or even your pawesome pooch on this adventure.

This amazing event is unique as it’s an escape room but…outdoors!  It’s a team event that uses a digital app for its scavenger hunt. Explore the city streets, dressed up in blue and white as you and the family hunt for puzzles and quests on this exciting adventure!

The aim of the game? To help the Smurfs get home! The evil wizard Gargamel tried to catch our small, blue friends with his new fiendish contraption – The Worminator – and sent the Smurfs crashing to Earth. It’s up to you and your fantastic team to help Papa Smurf and the family back to the Smurf Village.

Because of cool technology, the app has really neat augmented reality filters, so you can turn into your favourite Smurf characters! Don’t forget to snap a Smurf selfie along the way!

It’s an interactive experience like no other, that is happening in hundreds of cities across the world. Perfect for families to team up against Gargamel and get involved in all things blue!
