Early adventurers braved unknown lands armed with little more than all-terrain horses, a coal-burning GPS system, and plasma TVs useful only for bartering for lukewarm porridge. Revel in the convenience of more advanced exploring with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

  • $10 for two tickets to the Magnificent Mile, The Loop, or Navy Pier game zone (a $24 value)
  • $18 for four tickets to the Magnificent Mile, The Loop, or Navy Pier game zones (a $48 value)
  • $24 for two tickets for the Deep Dish Package, which includes access to all three game zones (up to a $60 value)
  • $48 for four tickets for the Deep Dish Package (up to a $120 value)

Players answer trivia questions and riddles as they explore the Loop's skyscraper canyons, breathe in lakefront air at Navy Pier, or strut their stuff along the glitzy Magnificent Mile. During the explorations, text-message clues point the way to such cultural hot spots such as the Chicago Theatre, Palmer House Hotel, the Hancock building, and the Crystal Gardens. Adventurers play at their own pace and most zones take two to three hours to finish.

Chicago: The Game's prices vary for children 12 and younger.

Stray Boots

Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.

Customer Reviews

A fun time, seeing and learning about places we'd never see on our own.
D M. · November 13, 2016
It was fun, the route was very easy to follow and we learned a few things. Its really more of a walking tour than a scavenger hunt per se. We went with 2 seasoned Manhattan-ites and they were surprised they learned a few new things. I'd recommend it more for visitors to the city. It took us about 1h 30 to complete. The app is well designed and easy to use.
