Take more than a bite out of the Big Apple as part of a team that scours the streets of New York for clues and tackles some crazy challenges, as part of an Amazing New York Scavenger Hunts. You'll dash to a series of landmarks and complete tasks such as solving a riddle, tossing a Wiffle ball or playing Dance Dance Revolution. Along the way, you'll have to snap photos of people or sights like a hot-dog vendor, a woman wearing red heels or a bride. A smartphone app will feed you challenges and clues, and it'll save your answers and photos in one place. Some races even have special themes, like music, food, sports or fashion, that take you to related locations, and each member of the winning team receives a New York City gift package. Please see the full event description for more details.
