The Winter Store Fronts

A HOLIDAY TREASURE HUNT

MAKE YOUR WISH COME TRUE

This winter, discover the new edition of our winter outdoor treasure hunt "Winter Store Fronts"
The adventure takes you on a ludic tour of Little Burgundy and Saint-Henri in Montreal, where you'll solve riddles hidden in the holiday decorations of the neighborhood businesses.

The game is designed in collaboration with SDC Les Quartiers du Canal.

ABOUT THE GAME

NO RESERVATION REQUIRED

The game is completely free and no reservation is required.
Simply arrive at the first stop, A/Maze Atwater during the opening hours, where a Game Master will explain the rules.

OUTDOOR

Keep in mind, this is an outdoor game. It is happening outside within a 1 km radius from the start point, so dress warmly. You should plan 40-50 minutes to finish the game.

FAMILY GAME

The game is designed for younger players and their families. Experienced escape game players will still have fun, but the game might be too easy (maybe).

New Version

This is the second edition of the game Winter Store Fronts and it has all completely new puzzles. The route is similar to last year, but the game has different start and ending points.
To solve the puzzles you will need a journal which will be given to you at the starting point. You can find the digital version of the journal right here.
