$99 for Entry for a Team of Two to the Urban Dare Super Dare Adventure Race (Up to $200 Value)

The three-day Urban Dare Super Dare kicks off on Saturday, April 6, at 10:30 a.m. with the Urban Dare obstacle course. After two-person teams recover from the physical challenges, competitors meet up for the trivia challenge at 3 p.m. and enjoy appetizers and cocktails during eight rounds of trivia. Finally, at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 7, teams make their way through a series of clues to complete the Urban Dare New Orleans adventure race. Race officials tally each team's combined score from the three events and award a $5,000 grand prize to the winning duo.

Urban Dare

The Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over their sprawling metropolis. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing challenges that may include a climbing wall or solving a riddle.
