The McCulloch Outdoor Adventure is an immersive fantastical themed adventure game for the whole family. Part of the McCulloch House Museum & Genealogy Centre, the outdoor adventure combines elements of escape rooms, scavenger hunts, and lore mixed in with nature.


You will be led through the McCulloch family’s old property on a mission that involves cracking codes, solving puzzles, and unraveling riddles. However, you must hurry as you are racing against time.

If you are looking for a reason to get out of the house with family or friends and enjoy the outdoors, the McCulloch Outdoor Adventure is perfect for you.
