Secret Party Quest

What is Secret Party Quest? 

Well, it is a mystery that unfolds before your very eyes. A quest that leads you and your friends towards a magical themed party the likes of which you’ve never seen before.

There will be story, a journey and characters to meet along the way, with all of these elements coming together to provide a memorable, one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated, experience and displaying Auckland in a new light.

And, this year Papaya Stories will bring a new story to life as they immerse their adventurous guests, working in groups of 20 with the guidance of your quest host, in the world of a Venetian masquerade ball. Behind the masks, everyone will be playing one of five roles -  Jester, Duchess, Casanova, Fortune Teller and Versace – as they follow imaginary Venetian canals while solving riddles to uncover the secret party location. And once it is reached, you must solve the password to unlock the hidden room full of magic and fun and intrigue.

Once at the party, you’ll be invited to walk promenade from room to room, marvelling at the kaleidoscope of immersive arts, dance, pop-up poetry and social improvisation. There’ll even be a Venetian mask workshop, in case you want to upgrade the mask you wore when you began this grand adventure.

To enhance the element of discovery and exclusivity, tickets are sold for a variety of start times, but all roads lead to Rome. Or in this case, Venice and the Secret Party location.
