Thinking of what to do this weekend? Well, there’s a brand new outdoor treasure hunt, virtual theatre, and game in the city of Singapore! Titled Time Heist: Civic District, it features the five arts and cultural icons of the Civic District. Combining treasure hunt mechanics with multi-disciplinary storytelling, the adventure shows the Asian Civilisations Museum, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, National Gallery Singapore, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall in a new way through immersive gaming. 

Race Against Time & Space

Taking on the role of time agents in 2055, the team is beseeched by the Ministry of Time Heritage’s Agency Director (Hossan Leong) to use their skills for good; travel back in time to 2022 to stop a nefarious plan to destroy Singapore’s beloved national monuments in the Civic District.

Players are encouraged to play together as a group, journeying through the precinct as characters personified by: Ching Shu Yi as Mercury – The Fixer, the quirky hacker; Munah Bagharib as a high society diplomat with a talent in forgery, Lady M – The Seeker; Timothy Wan as Ghost – The Codebreaker, the deadly assassin you’ll never see coming; and Bright Ong who lends his charisma to Zero, who leads the way with his brawns as much his brains.

Themed around the various national monuments, be it the legacy of trade routes at Asian Civilisations Museum or the storied history of the clock tower at the Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall, teams will have to combine the different clues and puzzles on their devices to ultimately stop the dastardly plan.

Explore The Civic District

Anchored by the five arts & culture institutions, Time Heist: Civic District presents a novel way to explore the precinct and its numerous lifestyle offerings. The innovative format draws audiences into the locales’ histories and exhibitions, all to be enjoyed alongside hospitality, F&B and other entertainment establishments in two ways: Standard Tickets (SG$40 for one, SG$100 for bundle of four) and the Time Heist VIP Package (SG$100/person, minimum 4 pax).

For the Standard Tickets, one ticket will provide access to the adventure via one mobile device. Players are encouraged to take part between 10.00am to 5.00PM, with options to take a break at any of the lifestyle offerings within the precinct.
