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 Entry to Scavenger Race on April 15 (a $50 Value)
During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a frantic race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first-place award of $300. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, quick wits and wise planning will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and T-shirt, and fees go toward the prize pool. The website offers a regular FAQ, as well as a Groupon FAQ detailing the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring a boa constrictor, and more.
After the race is through and winners are determined, all participants are invited to partake in an after-party and awards ceremony. Challenge participants can partake in drink specials and music while additional prizes, such as best costume, are announced. The race kicks off at 2 p.m. from Legends Sports Bar & Grill, and packets may be picked up from 12 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
