What you'll do

Join me for a unique scavenger hunt game that will help you learn the history of the Chicago Pedway and how to navigate the city completely underground—something many Chicagoans don't know how to do. When we meet, I'll give you a set of 10 questions to answer, all corresponding to locations in the Pedway. It's a race to find the location, write down the answer, and follow the directions to the next question. You can use your smart phones to help you, but you'll still have to visit each location to win. I’ll be hiding in a secret, last location. To win, be the first to find me with the correct answers. If you're the first one to arrive, you'll get a prize! No matter what, everyone is a winner, and each guest will receive one drink of their choice.

More tips

You can play in any group size, but groups of 1-2 are recommended. Each ticket is for one person; a group of 2 is 2 tickets. If you get stuck, you can contact me for a hint. I'll be hiding at the final location for 2 hours. Most guests finish in 50-80 minutes.
