very fun experience, I'd love to try other locations.
The scavenger hunt was so much fun. The only suggestion is that I would have them provide a little more detailed clues. As a person not from LA the clues weren't specific enough for me to exactly find what/where I needed to go. If my friend who moved to LA wasn't with me for the scavenger hunt I don't believe I would have gotten half of the clues correct.
Location clues are obscure in many cases. You learn little to nothing about your locale -- might as well stay home and play online. Lots of frustration if you can't locate the clue. Instead of teamwork and comraderie, we had a lot of frustration and resentment. I'd recommend Urban Adventures or Puzzling Adventures or Cluehoo.

Fun! We did this as a Girl Scout troop. 2 team of 16 year olds. Everyone agreed they would do it again. Only feed back would be to include some history of the city, buildings. Like what type of architecture is this building or what year was it built.
Maybe I am disappointed because I expected something like a scavenger hunt and that's not what it was. We found ourselves going to the same water fountain 3 or 4 times and it's not even historic or anything. There are so many wonderful sites in DTLA and we didn't really see much. Most of the time only one question had to do with the location and the rest were loosely related trivia that you either knew or used your phone to look up, not things you could find in the area. If I wanted to play random trivia I could do that in the comfort of my own home or a game night.
