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!

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!

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.

Super fun experience for my family on our spring break. Wonderful and unique way to explore the city. We would not have seen the special places without Kat! Loved the extra point challenges!

The hunt was SPECTACULAR! I had a blast exploring and finding hidden gems in Austin. I even did this solo and met soooo many friends along the way. I will definitely do other hunts in the future in other cities with Kat’s company. She is a LEGEND!

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. My friends and I were signed up for the walking version of the scavenger hunt on a rainy day, and we debated whether or not to even go on the tour as we thought it would be a drag. We could not have been more wrong. Even though none of us are especially outgoing and we were nervous at the thought of interacting with locals, the challenges were very fun and we found almost everyone to be very friendly and willing to help us. We also got to see a lot of things that we might not have otherwise. All of us agreed at the end that it was our favorite experience from our Austin trip! I would highly recommend.
