$39 for Entry Into the 2012 Phoenix Halloween Hunt (an $80 Value)
Teams of two or more put on their thinking caps and favorite Halloween costumes as they attempt to solve 11 different clues sprinkled across downtown Phoenix. Afterwards, event planners award $500 to the winning team as well as prizes for other categories, including best costume. Adventures start at Tilted Kilt downtown and typically last less than 90 minutes. Each participant receives a numbered bib, an event T-shirt, a bottle of water, and discounts offered by Tilted Kilt. Team members must bring at least one digital camera along with them.
If you see a group of pilgrims or zombies wandering your streets, you can take comfort in the fact that it's probably not a reenactment of the American Civil War. It's likely one of Ryfle Events' scavenger hunts, which sends costumed participants on a race that fuses physical challenges, clue solving, and urban exploration. Race planners award cash prizes to the winners, who can compete in a championship round at the end of the year.
