Get outdoors and get your mind and body hopping as your team races the streets of New York solving puzzles and searching for clues on the way to the finish line. Open to all ages, competitors dash to a series of landmarks and complete challenges like solving a riddle, doing a Sudoku, tossing a wiffle ball or playing Dance Dance Revolution. Along the way, you'll have to snap photos of things like a hot dog vendor, a woman wearing red heels or a bride. A handy smartphone app will feed you challenges and clues, and it'll save your answers and photos in one place. At the finish line, each member of the winning team gets a New York City gift package and a beer or soda. Some races have special themes, like music or fashion, that take you to locations related to that theme. See the full event description for details on themes by date. Learn More
Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (The ship will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. The aim is to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all guests.)
About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC
Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.
Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor's Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.
The 1920s-style motor yacht "Manhattan," also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
