Full description
Discover some of the most iconic places in London related to Queen and Freddie Mercury by solving clues around town and unlocking amazing stories. Use a mobile app that will give you directions every step of the way. Play the role of a journalist who gets a mysterious letter about the whereabouts of a lost Queen verse from 1977. Can you find the verse? Solve a clue to reveal exact directions to your next stop on the tour, without the need of a map, GPS, or a physical guide. Each correct answer unlocks an interesting story and reveals Queen's secrets. Complete the tour at your own pace as there's no time limit, though around two hours is normally enough. Pause the game at any time, and restart whenever you want from the last place you visited. After purchasing the quest, an access code will be delivered to your email, which can then be used in the downloadable app. Once you have downloaded the app, simply head to the starting point at the Imperial College of London whenever you choose and begin your adventure. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

We liked it a lot. With some challenges we struggled. But that's what it's all about, right? Not too easy not too hard :) also in the beginning we didn't know we had to download another app. But it was really nicely put together! Thank you for delivering a nice experience to us

Overall it was an enjoyable and visited places in London never seen before. But it would be good to get some points in the tour right, at the Albert Hall it was noted to find 'gate 2' but there was no gate, it was 'door 2' this did take us a long time to find, and had to ask people. Also some extra land marks along route would help to find the right track as well especially in the park. The tour took us longer to solve the clues, and unfortunately we did not finish it due to taking the wrong path in certain areas. But overall very imformative and interesting to know some of the facts. Thank you.
