Description

Discover Chicago in a new way on a Watson Adventures scavenger hunt! Downtown Chicago has been one of Hollywood’s favorite backlots, a chameleon that has even doubled for New York. This tour takes you to numerous places where TV or movie scenes have been shot, including such locations as Union Station (most memorably used in_ The Untouchables_), the Willis Tower (hello, Ferris Bueller!), Daley Plaza (goodbye Harrison Ford, The Fugitive!), Chicago City Hall–Cook County Building (watch out, Blues Brothers!), the El (yikes, Spider-Man and the Incredibles!), Marshall Field’s, the Chicago Cultural Center and lesser-known places made memorable on film.

About the Ticket Supplier: Watson Adventures

Watson Adventures sprang from the mind of Bret Watson, a veteran writer and editor (and occasional stand-up comedian), who started creating scavenger hunts in the early '90s for friends as a way to share his unique take on the lighter side of museums. As word of the unusual scavenger hunts spread, companies began to ask Bret to let them get in the game, and a business was born.

Since then, Watson Adventures has grown to span the nation, with more than 200,000 people participating in hunts, including employees of more than 1,000 prestigious corporations. All the while, Watson Adventures' scavenger hunts have received more media raves and other acclaim than any other company of its kind. Below, you can learn more about the creative, clever crew who've made our success possible.
