Sweet Dreams Ice Cream Parlour is the beloved home of the creamiest and most delicious cold treats you’ll ever taste. But be warned, these treats are just here to distract you from the sinister happenings lurking under the parlour’s surface. Sweet Dreams is home to an organisation called D.A.I.R.Y which is dedicated to causing all kinds of ice cream related havoc.

To get an idea of the mischievous nature of this organisation, you should know that they’re solely responsible for the price increase of the 99’ flake! Over the past decade, they’ve been researching how to make a nuclear ice cream recipe.

You’re a member of Mi8 who has got wind of this plan and managed to connect with a fellow agent working undercover within the organisation, Mr Curly Whirly. You’ll need to follow in his footsteps to find the recipe and expose the organisation. Hurry though, your presence has activated a bomb, which will destroy all evidence! You have an hour to find the recipe, disarm the bomb and escape with your life.

Frozen in Time

Stranded in the middle of the Prehistoric jungle, you’ll need to use all your smarts to survive.

A wondrous adventure deep in the Prehistoric jungle.

Claudius Hippobottom is lost in the jungle. He’s stuck wandering around in circles. Everywhere looks the same and he could be attacked by a predator at any moment. When all hope is lost, he starts to leave clues. Maybe someone will find them one day?

Welcome to the beating heart of the jungle, a treasure chest of history and knowledge suspended in the Prehistoric era. It’s brimming with artefacts from the past with as many dangers as there are fossils. Predators lurk behind every corner, ready to pounce upon their prey. Few who venture into the Prehistoric jungle ever return in one piece.

You always dreamed of becoming an explorer. You read about the exciting tales of famed paleontologist Claudius Hippobottom and vowed to one day follow in his footsteps and become the greatest explorer of all time. After Claudius disappeared on his quest to find the priceless ‘Heart of the Jungle’, you packed a bag and ventured in after him, hoping to complete what he started.

When night falls, you take refuge in an ice cave. When the sun rises in the morning, you discover the door has frozen solid, sealing you inside. Unless you want to be stuck here forever, you need to work with your fellow explorers to melt yourself free from the cave. But, your troubles don’t stop there. Mount Edna is due for an eruption, and you’ll need to find four elemental crystals and the ‘Heart of the Jungle’ to stop it! Luckily, Claudius’ research will put you on the right path.

You’ll need to use all your wits and knowledge to solve the clues from Claudius’ jungle–addled mind. Travel back in time for an exciting Prehistoric adventure and book Frozen in Time today!

All Muggled Up

Hurry! Gnomes have stolen your bags and you have a train to catch!

A frantic adventure in a fantasy world.

You arrive at the station with just enough time for a coffee before your train. It’s the only train that will get you to school before the start of the year. You look away for a split second, but that’s still enough time for gnomes to run off with your things!

Slanty Lane is known for its quirky little shops stocking all kinds of weird and wonderous items.

Students of the Mystic Arts preparing to start the new school year are frequent customers of the Slanty Lane shops. Need a three-eyed toad or a cauldron with a self-stirring wand? Slanty Lane is the place to go.

You’re a wizard about to return to school for the year. Unfortunately, mischievous gnomes have decided to steal your luggage and hide it all over Slanty Lane. You have about an hour until the train leaves for school and you need to be on it, but what’s a wizard without their wand?

You’ll have to use the most advanced magic to locate the magical items and arrive at school on time. Good luck!
