TwistsNTurns presents a unique and interactive detective game experience in which Girl Scouts become active participants in our immersive stories, and must work together as a team to unravel the plot before time runs out! Our immersive escape room/murder mystery experiences are led by a detective facilitator. Girls will feel like they've entered into a movie or video game, as they will be looking for clues, solving puzzles and riddles, and trying to catch a culprit all while earning a badge! Through the use of animations and special effects, girls will experience an exciting, realistic mystery solving experience that will put their detective skills to the test! 

Badges that can be earned: Daisy Making Choices, Brownie Senses/Making Games, Junior Detective/Digital Game Design, Cadette Special Agent/Finding Common Ground, Senior Truth Seeker/Game Visionary, Ambassador Digital Game Design
