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, Galveston/Corpus Christi! Also Carmel, Charleston, NOLA, Destin, Chicago, Cabo, & Palm Desert! 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!

what a blast. we knew the area and still had to search around. we loved the act like a little kid aspect of it. we spent a little too long at the bar or our time would have been better.

This was an amazing activity for me and my 2 daughters to give us an afternoon filled with fun selfies, goofy photos, silly activities and getting outside our comfort zones together!

We had a really great time during the hunt, and Kat was wonderful and very friendly! However, for the price, we probably could’ve done it ourselves.

My daughter and I had a great time being together. We laughed a lot and it was a perfect way to see Boulder! We can't wait to do the Hunts in Austin and San Antonio.

Amazing time! We went all over the place and learned a ton! Also, it was a blast doing things like getting out of our comfort zones!

This experience was unique and special. It allowed us to break from our comfort zone while discovering hidden and visible gems around Boulder. This was our first encounter with using Airbnb's experience trips and we were not disappointed. Although we never met in person (it was all done through cell phones i.e. calls [once] and text messages) Kat was our host and she was energetic and fantastic, giving us a pep talk before the hunt to get us pumped, which succeeded! Throughout the hunt she was giving encouragement to continue. All communication is done through the phone, and the host creates a group text so you can interact with other teams, which adds to the fun! We rented bikes, which was a great way to see the city; we watched street performances, which were hilarious; and we interacted with the locals. The great thing about this experience is what you get out of it, which is as much as you're willing to put in. If you're someone who hovers out of sight and away from people, you're still able to enjoy this scavenger hunt and earn points. Conversely, if you're someone who's outgoing, then you'll be more willing to experience all that you can. We are shy in nature, and this hunt had us breaking out of our shells and forming some precious memories along the way. It'd be great with groups of friends to add to the competition. If you're visiting Denver/Boulder, give this experience a chance. It's reasonably priced and you're guaranteed to have fun.
