- $23 for Virtual Challenge access for up to six people ($49 value)
During CityScape Adventure’s Virtual Challenge, participants harness the power of their smartphones to discover the secrets of their cities. Teams of up to six head to a starting location, load up the app, and press go, kicking off a puzzle-filled romp through the city in pursuit of finish line. Although they can’t see their competitors, teams are still in a race; an online leaderboard tabulates the finish times of every team that’s ever completed the challenge. Top teams compete for prizes, and each finisher receives a personalized CityScaper Certificate.
Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures—held across the United States—entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives. Click here for a video of past races.
