Have you ever wanted to follow the white rabbit down that mysterious hole? Well, now is your chance.

For one day only the streets of Manchester will be transformed into a giant Alice In Wonderland-inspired game, where teams will be invited to complete challenges styled on the weird and wonderful world of Lewis Carroll’s topsy turvy children’s tale.

Bringing to life beloved characters from the story like the Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts, Mad Hatter and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the game will spread out across the city centre over the course of a day.

Playing in teams of six, groups will find themselves scrambling around town, using the CluedUpp Games app to navigate their way to victory.

As the Cheshire Cat feeds out clues that seem to get curioser and curioser you and your team will need to solve riddles and take on some baffling challenges from the Mad Hatter in order to uncover a dark secret at the heart of Wonderland.


Taking place in Manchester on Saturday 26 November, team tickets are priced at £60, but for a limited time only you can get 50% off by using the code ‘TAKE50’ at checkout.
