There wasn't very much to this at all. There were only 2 of us and we finished extremely quickly. I can't imagine doing it with a large group. It had mostly historical facts rather than you solving puzzles and finding clues. You also get extra points for taking pictures on every screen which we realized halfway through.... that leads you to start taking pointless pictures of nothing just for the points.

+The whole group really enjoyed it. You can go fast or slow, super competitive or not at all. Loved how it was all withing walking distance, no driving necessary. The questions were interesting, nothing too hard but you did have to take your time and be observant. +50.00 per team seems very steep, but 25.00 with the Groupon feels about perfect. - Trying to find the Groupon code was very frustrating. Once you finally find the link some where in My Groupons the actual code downlowds to your phone as a .pdf, so you can't copy and paste into the website. It all seemed much more of a hassle then it should be. - Our specific adventure (Salt Lake City) was labeled as "open 24/7" but a few of the locations do in fact close for the night and one team barely made it in time.

Fun experience to get around a new town or vacation spot. Great to do with family, friends, or on a date. Would recommend adding TIME TO COMPLETE route and also an option to PAUSE the time clock (to linger and explore the places you go to more than just to race through the clues). Otherwise great time!

It was fun and I liked the information about Bakersfield. However the very first question was not possible because the object had been removed from the parking lot completely. Then another question the supposed correct answer was clearly wrong. So we had an unfair disadvantage. It was also way shorter and easier than I had anticipated.

We had a great time finding the answers to the clues given. Our only complaint would be a couple of answers we had correct but were marked wrong because of minor issues. Otherwise, this scavenger hunt was both fun and informative. Highly recommended! What a great way to learn about the history of the area.

About this Business

Puzzling Adventures provides an unconventional way to explore some of the most beautiful cities around the world. All players need is a mobile device with Internet access and they’re prepared for excursions that combine the fun of scavenger hunts with the information of self-guided tours and the competition of The Amazing Race. During adventures, individuals, couples, and teams are guided to various locations where they are asked to solve puzzles in order to receive instructions to the next stop. However, Puzzling Adventures wants adventurers to enjoy the city at their leisure, so there’s plenty of time to eat, drink, and sightsee in between stops.
