Completing a scavenger hunt is fun in both childhood and adulthood, just like joining a balloon toss or playing pin-the-tail on the police officer. Feel your way to victory with this Groupon.
- $20 for urban-race entry for one (up to $50 value)
During the race, teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the city on an adult scavenger hunt. The hunt combines trivia, from pop culture to world history, with a few physical challenges. Participants are free to use GPS systems, maps, and even public transit passes—just nothing that grants an unfair physical edge, such as rollerblades or a pack of sled dogs.
CitySolve Urban Race
CitySolve Urban Race lets citizens explore their metropolis through a one-day odyssey that tests speed, stamina, and smarts. Teams scamper through their burb as they solve clues ranging from anagrams and pop-culture trivia to deciphering graffiti written in pig Latin. Interspersed throughout the race are mettle-testing physical challenges, molding iron wills to such tasks as dodgeball, improv comedy games, or identifying ice-cream flavors. Each day's race also awards winners for best costumes and best tweet. Each urban iditarod takes between two to three hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited.
