What you'll do

It all begins in 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, and Corpus Christi! Also Carmel, Charleston, Destin, Boulder, Cabo, NOLA, Chicago! Great for corporate teams and other special groups
Other things to note

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!

This was a lovely event that exposed us to many locations in the area that we’d never been. Really had fun and met new people!

This scavenger hunt was very well thought out. You can choose how much or how little you’d like contact with people, based on your health needs. Mina & Kat were very attentive. The hunt flowed very well & you can grab yummy munchies at some of the locations. I had a great time!

The scavenger hunt was really a lot of fun. Its a driving adventure and we found several new places that I would have never known about otherwise, like the botanical gardens. And it was fun figuring out the best way to meet the photo requirements - like which yoga pose or design was most fun. Really a lot of fun and thanks to Kat & Mina for the adventure. For optimum experience, you may be out of pocket the small cost of a treat or coffee, so be prepared. You can however, do the hunt with no additional costs.

Great fun! Great way to get to know the various cities in the desert. Also, gets your own personal group to do things that are funny and unexpected.

Unique way to explore the town. However, it was more about going to different places and doing a bunch of activities that were already laid-out. It could have been better to actually know what was unique about the places we were visiting than just getting encouragement texts. Kat and Mina were super friendly and were engaged throughout, but the experience could have tailored better to tell us more about Palm Springs :)

This was a fun afternoon. We had 3 groups of 4 per team. I think my sister-in-law somehow cheated (lol) and came in first with the most points. I highly recommend this hunt. Very fun. I would do it again.
