"Waxwing really knows how to bring people together! This was the perfect opportunity to explore the city through an extremely intriguing game while interacting with my friends on a completely new and engaging setting."
"Our company just had a group event with Waxwing and we had a blast...! It's a great way to get to know others and learn how to work together. Waxwing worked with our group to customize for our event. Highly recommend them - and will definitely book an event again!"
"Each event is meticulously crafted and well executed. It's an unusual, affordable way to get to know parts of the city you never knew existed."
"The organization I work for took our yearly staff retreat underground in a game of Labyrinth. So. Much. Fun. It made for an afternoon of seeing parts of the city we had never seen, and working with people we see everyday, but never like this! Well-organized game, very creative, challenging, yet doable. Thank you, Waxwing!"
"You get an email saying show up here at this time, and you have no idea what you are in for! It's all part of the fun!"
"We hired Waxwing to design a treasure hunt specifically for our library. I could not have been happier... I watched our staff rush around laughing, solving puzzles, and having a great time."
"This was truly a social game... we had fun and ended up talking and laughing with everyone."
