Don your deerstalkers, thinking caps, and sleuthing sneakers as you prepare to navigate the enigmatic streets of Lower Manhattan on a mysterious quest for knowledge, fun, and bragging rights with today's deal to Watson Adventures. For $12, you get one ticket to the Secrets of Wall Street Scavenger Hunt (normally $24.50). More exciting than a trip to the movies or a pickup game of pickleball, this two-hour game for teams of adults will take you to Bowling Green, the National Museum of the American Indian, Custom House, and more. Call your puzzle-solving savants and genius girlfriends to get this Groupon and build an unstoppable scavenging team.
Compete against teams of six adults with a list of clues and questions that will lead you to the Stock Exchange, a giant bull, and a spooky cemetery in search of the fascinating facts and history that will win you the game and the glory. Search your city during the most beautiful time of year, and let a pile of leaves break your fall after a scavenger hunt defeat. In victory, the red and orange leaves make eco-friendly confetti with which to celebrate in the crisp fall air.
Meet at the flagpole just inside Battery Park at the entrance on Broadway, across the street from Bowling Green to begin your fun and challenging afternoon of competition, teamwork, and brainpower. Be sure to wear comfy clothes and shoes, and don't bring anything heavy. Go alone and meet new friends, or bring your best pals, coworkers, or special someone to test the strength of your bonds. Teams are comprised of six people. But if you’re not arriving with six people, don’t worry - Watson Adventures will pair you up with other fun-loving hunters to form a full team. In the event of severe weather, the hunts will be rescheduled for October 24.
- The hunt is challenging (good luck finishing on time) and competitive (it’s one step shy of paintball). – Daily Candy
Yelpers give Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunts four stars:
- The people who own the place too are really great...It makes learning history so much more fun about the city you live in! I just wish more of my friends were interested in this! – Joanie K.
- They are a great way to deal with friends and family when they are blowing up the air mattress in your cramped studio apartment for the week. – Collin M.
- I had a good time and would recommend this for corporate team building, birthday parties or for those who are looking for something to do with a big group that does not involve alcohol or athleticism. – Reshma B.
