Mystery Games in the Twin Cities

Looking for something to do with a group of friends that isn’t the same old thing? How about something a bit … mysterious? Trapped Puzzle Rooms offers an exciting, interactive entertainment experience for any group looking for something beyond the ordinary. It’s Mystery Night at the pub!

If you’re a fan of mystery books, movies, or TV shows, Trapped Puzzle Rooms has a detective experience that is right up your alley. A dark alley, perhaps, with a lead pipe and strange footprints … clues for you to solve while enjoying the food and beverages at a local pub.


Put on your detective hat, gather a trusty sidekick or two, and set about using your wit and wiles to piece together the clues and figure out who did it at one of our mystery games, hosted regularly in the Twin Cities area.

What is a mystery game, and how do I find one? Continue on, dear reader, and let us provide some facts.

More than Just Escape Rooms at Trapped

Trapped offers a wide range of immersive puzzle room experiences for participants of all ages and groups. Our traditional escape rooms are great fun, but we have something more: mobile mystery games that travel around local pubs and breweries.

Gather a Group to Solve a Mystery Game Tonight

One of our adventures is called Mystery Night, a puzzle room experience hosted at some of your favorite pubs, restaurants, and breweries around the Twin Cities.

To participate, you get a group of friends or co-workers together, buy tickets online, and then show up, ready to eat, drink, and solve puzzles. It’s as simple as that.

Each group gets a “puzzle-room-in-a-box” to work on with your team while enjoying a local brew or two. Go head-to-head with other teams, or just take your time and enjoy the challenge!

​Trapped’s Mystery Night pub gaming events require the same ingenuity, wit, a sharp eye, and teamwork as our puzzle rooms do.

Mystery Night games have the additional adult fun of competing against other teams in a trivia night-type setting, complete with some of the most deliciously crafted brews in the Twin Cities.
