Scaventour, Escape Room Game in Lubbock Texas

Scaventour™
Outdoor Escape Game in Lubbock

Call 806-553-6499 to reserve a game or get more information.

Looking for things to do in Lubbock? Scaventour™ is a guided live action outdoor escape game that is modeled off of an escape room game, but instead of the game taking place indoors in a private venue, it is outside in public spaces. Like an escape room, players are challenged to open many locked cases and bags in order to find the next location and get to the end within 60 minutes. At times, Scaventour™ will feel like an escape game, but other times, it feels like a scavenger hunt, or a treasure hunt, or even like in a famous code breaking movie, or one about a treasure hunt. People who enjoy geocaching should find that Scaventour is a fun game to play. Book now to enjoy a fast-paced tour experience that is like no other you've ever encountered.

Perhaps you have played outdoor scavenger hunts or murder mysteries before. This game is closer to an escape game because you have a guide who acts as the game master (which allows us to give you some neat tools to use to solve the clues (i.e. a laser range finder, a compass, an angular ruler, laser keyboard, etc.)). The guide is very important because he or she allows the game to be complex, but also have help if your group needs it. So, this isn't a self-guided game, rather it is what you would expect to find in an escape room, but outside.

We have different games for different size groups.

The larger games are great for corporate teambuilding or building military cohesion.

See below a video from our game in Hawaii for a sense of how the games work (Lubbock videos coming soon)

Note: Scaventour started in Waikiki in 2016 and has been going strong. For more on that game, visit Scaventour.com.

How does Scaventour™ work?

For the route based games (Lost Key) a guide meets you at a designated spot. The guide gives you a quick brief, then gives you a backpack. All of the pockets are locked on the backpack. Just like in an escape room, you have to open a lot of locks. Inside the pockets are clues. Those clues are relevant at different places within walking distance in Lubbock. You have to walk to the place, use the clue to help solve a puzzle by looking at the clue and then finding something at your destination that is related to the clue (so if your clue had several bank logos, you might find an ATM at the destination that has those same bank logos ... and your clue would help you figure out how to turn that into numbers).

Eventually, the puzzle will yield a combination that will help you unlock one of the locks. Once you open the lock, you will find another puzzle and another destination. The destinations are no more than 100 yards apart. You will walk to the next place and repeat this (some places have multiple puzzles in a single location).

You have 60 minutes to walk the 1 mile course and solve the puzzles.

Scaventour is a walking game, not a running game. Some teams have tried to run, but almost all of them have failed.

For teams that have younger players or novices, some of the puzzles are modified to better suit their skill level. Furthermore, there are some additional components of the game that can be added if you have a couple of players as young as 7 playing the game.
