The Hangover – ‘Lost In Kings Cross’ is an app based puzzle adventure inspired by the movie. You have lost all memory of the night before and have also lost one of your friends. With only his phone, you will need to solve clues to follow his trail and find out what happened to him.

Should I drive or take public transport?2019-06-14T15:04:49+10:00

Kings Cross Station is just a short walk from The Bourbon (start and end point) so public transport is an easy option. For the avid driver, parking can sometimes be tricky this close to the centre of Sydney but not impossible so plan ahead.

Is this suitable for children?2019-06-14T14:58:35+10:00

The trail is roughly 5km and the game play includes minor adult themes so this event might not be suitable for children. Players below the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult.

Food and drink is not included in this event. However, we will start and end at The Bourbon Hotel, Potts Point where you will find a plenty of options for food and drink.

Absolutely! This game is designed for all. All puzzles come with hints and solutions to help you along the way. But remember, hints add time to your game clock.

How many people are in a team?2019-06-14T16:28:51+10:00

We recommend 2-3 people per team as most of the interaction is via a phone/app, though ultimately it’s up to you.

The total game play can be between 1.5 and 2.5 hours depending on your puzzle solving and walking speed. Remember, the total walking distance is around 5km. As teams will leave and arrive separately we expect to conclude around 6pm.
