The mystery puzzle game was fun, but the interface with my iPhone was clunky. Very hard to go back and forth from screen to screen. Otherwise we enjoyed following the clues and seeing some aspects of AVL history we wouldn't otherwise have seen.

We enjoyed getting to venture on our own to see the views of historical Asheville. It was very entertaining to solve the puzzles. However, while walking outside it is very difficult reading the cryptic messages. Overall, we enjoyed this very much!

Good fun activity to do on a chilly but sunny day. It's pretty easy to get around downtown Asheville by walking so even though we went to several different places to learn about their ghosts, we solved everything in just over an hour. 10/10 recommend.

It was okay. We learned some history that we may have missed otherwise and are glad to have tried it. The website design is brutal. It has a color scheme that minimizes visibility in daylight. If you enter an incorrect answer, nothing happens, which is hard to discern from the times when you enter a correct answer and the website is just slow to respond. One clue is missing due to COVID-19 restrictions. We just guessed every letter of the alphabet until we could proceed. If it's on sale, give it a try. The standard list price is excessive.

We had a great time with this experience! We had to do it over the course of two days, because the first day was raining, making it a little difficult to find the things they told us to look for. On the second day we did a lot more walking and it was very nice to see the different things, and learn the some of the interesting history about the city of Asheville.

This was an absolute blast! Great way to spend time downtown. We've already got a second Groupon for the other one.

The beer walk was fun, but still confusing to solve puzzles for us locals! We had to use the hints several times. Not for anyone who gets frustrated easily because you really have to pay attention, write stuff down, and use your brain, while drinking beer.
