Cryptic Chase

Cut to the Chase

Come and try our Cryptic Chase

If you like solving puzzles, and you like being outdoors, then Cryptic Chase is the perfect activity to get stuck into.  Forget watching gameshows from the comfort of your sofa with biscuits and a brew, and get yourself over to our top class activity centres to get your puzzle solving out on the road (well, out in the countryside).

During your experience with us, you’ll find different marked points on your map highlighting cryptic clues, riddles, puzzles and teasers at each location of our chase. This is no leisurely stroll, however, and you’ll be up against the clock.  Get your brain in gear, move quickly, and be sure to earn your place on our famous Cryptic Chase Leaderboard!

Cryptic Chase is an amazing activity for friends and families of all ages to enjoy (or endure, depending on how competitive you are with your team mates). Bond, or battle it out, the choice is yours.  Either way, you’re sure to leave your day with us with great memories and even greater stories of your trials and tribulations in taking on the Cryptic Chase.

Please note that during winter, the course at Hazlewood can get very muddy. We recommend wellies or boots with a good grip, and clothes you don't mind getting muddy (It's all about the adventure)

Our Cryptic Chase activity has become so popular at Live for Today, that we’ve acted on feedback from our customers and released Cryptic Chase Plus, more to find and harder to solve. Think you have what it takes?

Something different for a day out with the loved one Loved the air rifle shooting but found out that the other half is a deadly sniper. Quad biking was a good experience the seesaw was much funner than the limbo. The most enthusiastic instructor award has gotta go to Sam thanks for the day out!

Extreme Quad biking I booked this experience for my partner birthday an when he was let down by his friends I had to step in but was extremely frightened as I haven't done quad biking before. Daz our instructor was great at reassuring me an ensuring I knew how to operate the bike. Daz was extremely patient and very reassuring with me. When Daz could see I was comfortable on the bike an had my bearings he pushed our skills to the next level making the course fun and exciting. It was by far one the best experiences I have had, I pulled up at the end with such an adrenaline rush wanting to do the course again. Thanks Daz for making our experience exciting and safe we be back.
