It's not uncommon for a resident to only explore a city’s sights when guests come to town or when practicing hypnosis in a mirror leads to amnesia. Sightsee in a new, more competitive context with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get to participate in a two-hour GPS-guided race from Geoteaming (a $26.61 value). Contenders meet every Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Pike Place Market circle on Western Avenue.
Competitors in Geoteaming’s high-tech urban tour scan aerial maps and GPS equipment as they race between downtown attractions and photograph out-of-the-way locales. Following a series of clues, contestants seek out and photograph targets within a two-hour time limit, an adventure similar to beating Pokemon Snap while slowly sinking in quicksand. After a brief training session on arrival, participants can dash off solo or alongside quick-witted friends, beginning a round of good-natured bickering that continues through the post-race awards ceremony.
