Scavenger hunts are the best way to get to know a city, just ahead of spending six months living with the mayor in the city sewers. Hit the streets with this Groupon.
$29 for Race Entry for One ($69 Value)
Participants make teams of two or three for a two-hour race through the Strip that combines scavenger-hunt clues and creative challenges. Themed nights include the upcoming Halloween hunt that awards additional prizes to the most creatively costumed. Each team receives a free bottle of water and clue packet, as well as discounts at participating sponsors. The race is held in all weather, and because many challenges require jaunts through casinos, at least 1 participant must be 21.
This Groupon is also valid for non-holiday events, as well as races in San Diego, Phoenix, Miami, and Los Angeles.
A Great Chase
In an event inspired by The Amazing Race, teams of two contestants trek through various locations throughout their city, guided by 10 brainteasing clues that either direct participants to a new locale, or demand chasers perform a creative task. Each chase consists of 10–25 teams, who bolt from their starting location to scour city streets for one to four hours. The first team to dash across the finish line wins a trophy and free entry into a championship version of the Great Chase, whose winner takes home $10,000.
