There are secrets hidden in the streets of the city. An undiscovered treasure lies waiting for a daring explorer among the towering industrial complexes of the Lachine Canal. Now, a new Montreal escape game from A/Maze is giving you a chance to claim the prize.\n"The Secret of the Lachine Canal" is the company's first outdoor game, designed with public health guidelines in mind.\n"The game offers the same type of escape game experiences as A/Maze's indoor adventures, but reshaped due to the reality caused by the pandemic," A/Maze CEO Alexander Karpov told MTL Blog.\n"Participants don't need to enter any buildings, come in contact with people or touch non attended props."\nThe inspiration for the new game is "the legacy of John Redpath, an industrial pioneer who helped build the Lachine Canal," Karpov explained.\nAccording to the game's narrative, Redpath hid his most valuable possessions somewhere along the canal so that "only a true expert of the city would be able to locate" the treasure.\nBut it wasn't until the recent construction work on the Turcot Interchange that his notebook was finally discovered.\nNow, the Redpath family is enlisting Montrealers' help to find the cached fortune.\nTreasure hunters will get a copy of the notebook to find clues and solve puzzles on their journey.\nTo play, gamers will have to reserve a time slot on the A/Maze website.\nView this post on Instagram Plus de 150 personnes ont essayé notre nouveau jeu d'évasion extérieur la semaine passée. 50 équipes ont trouvé le trésor de John Redpath et découvert l'histoire du Canal Lachine.
