Operation Survival
To face a world in crisis a competition has been set. The Foundation for the Future is being formed. It could help humanity survive the many challenges facing our environment. It wants ideas for action. The Cambridge Act to Save the Environment society is up to the challenge, but it needs your help!
With a live leader board, 4 Museums, and clue hunting against the clock. Gather up your best team and join us for a fun and fast-paced morning in Cambridge.  
Useful Information
Bring a (charged!) smartphone with a data plan
After booking tickets you will be sent a link to set up your team, along with full details of where to meet and what to expect.

Think Quickly, Move Slowly

Operation Survival is designed for adults (18+). You can join individually, or as part of a team (up to 5 players), and be as casual or as competitive as you like (though no running in the Museum!). You'll need to be comfortable moving around at walking pace for a couple of hours. The game will run across the Polar Museum, The Museum of Zoology, Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. 
The game can be made accessible with some small adjustments and we're very happy to help. Please let us know in advance via Fire Hazard Games on 0203 322 7086 or
