Description

It’s a sightseeing tour… It’s a game… It’s a scavenger hunt. It’s an immersive experience. It’s, well, all of the above – and more! It is the Amazing Los Angeles Race, a brand new concept in sightseeing, and an utterly unique entry into the things-one-must-do while in Los Angeles.

 

Along the way, players experience some of the most popular sights in Los Angeles, including Mann’s Chinese Theatre, the Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Bowl and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Players will also see some hidden gems. But unlike the passive guests on other tours, Amazing LA Race participants will have to interact with the sights, not just see them.

 

“It’s a very active experience,” says Larry Toffler, the tour’s other creator. “You can’t just sit and watch. You actually need to interact with your surroundings in order to get from one sight to another. And by surroundings, we don’t just mean places. We mean people too. There are lots of facets to this city of ours, and the Amazing LA Race offers the full range.”

 

While Bob and Larry designed the game for tourists, it is also great for locals who want to (or have to) enjoy a ‘staycation.’ “We’ve had LA natives play the game, people who have lived here their entire lives,” says Toffler, “and they’ve said, ‘I saw things today, that I have never seen before. Others have said, ‘it’s the most fun I’ve had in LA.’”

 

The game/tour ends with a finish-line awards ceremony, where prizes are given to top finishers, and all players receive complimentary beverages and snacks. Most participants use this time to bond with their fellow competitors, regale one another with “war stories,” and declare that they could have won, if only…
