- $35 for a scavenger hunt-style adventure for one team (a $49 value)
Teams of two to five people navigate the citywide scavenger hunt with the help of their smartphones, which connect to web-based software that guides them along their quest with coded clues. As they progress through their chosen city, participants complete challenges, learn tidbits of local history, and see the area’s landmarks. Teams can opt to travel the course at a leisurely pace, or challenge each other to a competitive race. Courses typically take 2–3 hours.
Urban Adventure Quest
While many citywide scavenger hunts require registering in advance, showing up to a set location, and finishing on time, Urban Adventure Quests requires only a smartphone and a thirst for the unknown. Following routes provided online whenever the mood strikes, participants in the scavenger-hunt-style challenge can explore in more than 20 cities. Along the way, they absorb tidbits of local history and see iconic landmarks while decoding clues and completing exciting challenges.
