Scavenger hunts help people to get to know a city intimately, which may prove valuable when put in charge of hiding celebrity wax figures for the citywide celebrity-wax-figure hunt that takes place each Easter. Prepare for this venerable American tradition with this Groupon.

$20 for Entry to Scavenger Race on Sunday, May 6 ($50 Value)

During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals run helter-skelter around the city in a frantic race for hundreds of dollars in cash prizes, personal pride, and entry into the national challenge in New Orleans. Not only do participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues, they need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, quick wits and wise planning ultimately determine the winners and each group can move at its own pace. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and T-shirt, and fees go toward the prize pool. The website offers a regular FAQ, as well as a Groupon FAQ detailing the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring a boa constrictor, and more.

After the race is through and winners are determined, all participants are invited to partake in an after-party and awards ceremony. Challenge participants can partake in drink specials and music while additional prizes, such as best costume, are announced. The race kicks off at 2 p.m. at Luckie's Tavern, and registration packets may be picked up from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
