A historical site where pockets of history are still well and alive, it serves as the perfect backdrop for this year’s story and adventures, aptly called ‘Whisper of the Guardians’.

This follows after the hugely successful ‘Journey to the End and Back’, an epic escape adventure at spooky Haw Par Villa that took place last year.

Journey to the End and Back

Last year’s event saw over 1000 people putting their wits to the test, solving puzzles and journeying through the game, in hopes of bringing their unconscious friend’s soul back.

Journey to the End and Back

The rich history of Haw Par Villa, combined with the compelling story line of the game made for an immersive, unique adventure experience–and that’s exactly what you can expect at this year’s Whisper of the Guardians.

Journey to the End and Back

This time, the story has changed, but the challenges and the thrills remain the same:

A shop house owner was renovating his attic when he discovered an old scroll, which supposedly contains information leading to the treasure left behind by rich Chinese merchants escaping from the Japanese during WWII. You have been hired to help decipher the scroll, with the promise of a share of the treasure if you find it.

Along the way, you will soon discover that there are guardians of the treasures, loyal families who swore to protect the treasure through generations, who have been waiting for the rightful heir. Your task is to locate the treasure before the thieves get to them.

Sound like your cup of tea? Gather your friends into teams of 6 and make a date on 20th or 27th May. Don’t forget to bring your brains with you–you’re going to need it!

Each game will last approximately 2 hours and requires some travelling, so make sure to bring along your ez-link card, dress comfortably and bring an umbrella!

Whisper of the Guardians

Tickets also come with a free entry into the award-winning Chinatown Heritage Centre, which can be used after your game, to explore the rich heritage and history of Chinatown at your own leisure! (Entry is valid for 3 months, worth S$15 per person)
