30 minutes. 30 dangerous paths. YOU choose the path to survive!

Readers choose their own path as they dodge obstacles like giant sea monsters, double-crossing villains, hungry great white sharks . . . and maybe even a Canadian Bermuda Triangle!

What starts as a boring tour boat experience on the east coast of Canada quickly turns into chaos. It seems your parents have a very valuable map to the locations of some very important objects, and a group of criminal masterminds will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

You’ve somehow made it off the boat with the map, but then do you suit up for a dive, swim to a nearby island or hitch a ride on a suspicious-looking speedboat? Can you find the treasure in time? And even if you do, will you be able to avoid booby traps, criminals hot on your trail and mutant creatures standing guard?

You’ve got 30 minutes to get to the treasure, stop the criminal masterminds, and save your parents . . . or die trying!
