What You'll Get
The great historical figures of the past still inspire us today, which is why every family raises at least one child to believe he or she is the reincarnation of Caesar Augustus. Relive history with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one ticket to the Lincoln's Lost Treasure scavenger hunt adventure, including two soft drinks and an appetizer (a $38.95 value).
Touring groups, clued in by a cast of live actors and cryptic puzzles, gallivant about the streets of downtown Gettysburg in an interactive quest for Lincoln's Lost Treasure. The escapade begins before the scavenger hunt-style romp, when a phone call reveals the hunt's secret starting point. Groups of up to 10 are commissioned by a wealthy, offbeat entrepreneur to locate a lost trove of treasury gold that Abraham Lincoln hinted at with his final breath. Set in modern-day Gettysburg, the plot then unfolds as teams sleuth through the historic downtown, traveling by foot or hoofing it via hover-chariot. Groups gather clues from an eccentric cast of characters, and dodge FBI agents out to foil the mission and ratchet up jaywalking arrests. During stops along the way, appetizers and two beverages refresh minds, enabling them to keep puzzling out clues throughout the 2-3 hour experience. The staff prefers that kids aged 10-15 be accompanied by adults, though youths as young as five have been known to join in the live action fun.
Lincoln's Lost Treasure melds fact and fiction, then mixes in the thrill of scavenger hunts, the scenery of walking tours, and the whiz-bang of interactive theater. Locals experience familiar settings in a new way, and tourists get a thrilling excursion through the city and its laser-guarded aqueducts.
