CI: The Crime Investigators

Solve the mystery of cohesive teams!

Foul play has taken place and the local police department needs your help in solving this crime. Your aptitude for cooperation, innovative problem solving and creativity will be tested in this interactive and entertaining event. Each team will have members learn a unique skill that is integral to the success of the team. Teams will receive a top secret crime dossier containing the necessary background information and history about the victim and suspects. Teams will then navigate a series of cryptic clues leading them to various relevant locations.

Each location will be staged as a crime or evidence collection area where teams must carefully search for clues, plus preserve and document evidence to solve each particular component of the case. Upon completion, the teams will hand in their evidence and receive lab results. Their final challenge will be to interpret the meaning of the clues and evidence, then attempt to solve the mystery: who has committed the crime!

Event Overview & Features

After a brief event introduction, team members will learn new and unique skills to help them complete the investigation. With members proficient in a specific navigational or crime solving skill, teams will work together to navigate their way to a series of different locations. We come to you and modify the program to your venue or location requirements. This is a low impact event with minimal walking required. Once all the evidence has been collected teams must submit samples to the lab and interpret the results. Careful analysis will lead teams to uncover the truth and solve the crime.

    "I would like to thank all involved at Canadian Outback for the fabulous CI event! I enjoyed how the event engaged the group from beginning to end, well done! I was pleased with the crime scenes provided around Bear Mountain, very creative! I also appreciated the lack of need for involvement (as an organizer) on my part. The set up and execution of the event was cleverly done and very professional."

    - BC Ferries

    "The entire group loved the CI experience in Kelowna and had a great time. I was very surprised that finding out the ‘who done it’ actually took some time and that it wasn’t an obvious answer. In comparison to other events, we liked the fact we didn’t have to actually run around a lot (the group was not wanting exercise). The emphasis on the creative was great for creating laughs (especially the photos)."

    - General Mills

    "Our CI event was a great success! I liked the fact that we got to use a real camera, finger print tools and black light for blood spatter. It allowed us to actually get into character and experience the CI feel. I also liked how we worked as a team to try and figure out the mystery, it was great feeding off each other. Getting to see people in another light and learn about their strengths, creativity, and humour that you don't necessarily know about in their usual jobs was a big plus."

    - TD Meloche Monnex

    "CI: Crime Investigators was really FUN. It was great to get outside and move around. We enjoyed the personalization of the info, relating the suspects and victims linked to our conference location. There was a good variety of tasks to complete at different stations. Collecting the blood & fingerprints was really fun and good for a laugh."
