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 One Race Entry to LA Challenge: The Ultimate Urban Scavenger Race ($50 Value)
Held on Saturday, April 14, the one-day race sets teams of two or more participants scampering through the city as they solve clues, chart the best course, and discover new corners of their burb. Races begin and finish at Big Wang's on South Grand. The race starts at 1 p.m., but participants can show up from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. to pick up prerace packets and change into a uniform that's half track-and-field athlete, half Columbo. Although this Groupon covers entry for one participant, customers can buy up to 10 Groupons as gifts for teammates.
