What you'll do

It all begins at a scenic spot that's a local favorite. We will get our missions and go over instructions/ground rules for the game. After a warm-up to prepare for this true sport, teams will take off to experience a wide variety of carefully curated locations throughout town. You'll drive in your car (special carless version available on request) to the various checkpoints, solving clues and accepting challenges that involve getting outside your comfort zone at each spot!

Both family and dog friendly, the game alternates between the indoors and outdoors with plenty of alternative spots and free choices too! You'll send photos to your host to document your progress. You can even interact with locals to solve clues! You won’t be able to avoid having fun, uncovering hidden gems and local secrets, making memories, laughing and learning along the way! You’ll be part of the rich culture of this dynamic city! Every turn is full of surprises, so questions in advance are welcomed! Check out our hunts in Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, and Corpus Christi! Great for corporate teams and other special groups!
Other things to note
We can offer special diet friendly and rainy day checkpoints - bonus missions too! We can accommodate larger groups, special dates/times, and private groups on request. Custom adventures available!

Where you'll be

Your quest begins west and generally unfolds all over town across roughly 10-15+ surprise checkpoints! Quirky destinations await: whimsical shops, street art, culture, nature, conversation pieces, history, more art, local quirks, culinary delights, etc. We organized the stops in a sensible, geographical fashion, avoiding backtracking/unnecessary travel. Be prepared to drive, but other options exist! Deciding how you'll get around is part of fun!

Rated 4.85 out of 5 from 228 reviews.

This was such a fun way to see Austin! The locations were all close together and the missions at each location were fun and funny! The hosts were great at communicating with you throughout. Well thought out scavenger hunt with flexibility on how long you wanted to drag it out. Recommend for sure!

Even Better the Second time!! Kat and the team out did themselves. I had already taken a scavenger hunt a few years ago with this organization and when I returned to Austin I wanted to share that experience with my family in town for the weekend. My expectations the second time around were met and surpassed exponentially! I’m so happy they made accommodations for Covid-19 and felt really safe the entire time. We were able to enjoy the city without concerns. The team even reached out to me before hand as a Scavenger alum and provided additional task for my family and I to complete. The four of us fully enjoyed how personalized it all felt. And the City of Austin delivered as usual. Couldn’t have been any better and can’t wait to try this experience in other cities in the future. Make sure you check this experience out if you are in town. You will not be disappointed! 🙂

Super fun way to explore a new city and learn about its history, cool spots to hang out and cool artwork. This will push you a bit out of your comfort zone which we found to be very fun in the end. You learn a lot about yourself and those you participate with. Great way to meet new people that may not necessarily be “your” people.

Such a wonderful adventure! I wouldn't have seen any of these places without a local's insight. Kat is so warm and fun!! I'll definitely be looking forward to other adventures in different cities.
