So much fun (even with the rain!). We met a bar and from there, we were given our scavenger hunt list. All or so teams tore out of the bar on the mad hunt for our items (i.e A picture depicting each of the 12 days of Christmas, a picture of your...continued

It was Great! I would definitely do it again!! We met at the bar and everyone in there was very friendly and ready to assist you. You are broken up into Teams of four and given a packet which you can't open until everyone receives it. You...continued

We went during the winter, so this is how the "Underground" version goes. We met at a bar in Penn Station and received a packet with clues leading to different subway stations in Manhattan. Bring a cell phone, digital camera, an all-day...continued

It was fun to go around and try to do all the challenges, but I am disappointed that there wasn't a little treat for all of the teams at the end. Our ticket money, it seems, was used to buy great prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place that the rest of...continued

this was not at all what I expected- I thought you would be trying to figure out riddles and then taking pictures of those items. Instead, they told you exactly what it was and you had to hassle strangers to take pictures of you with it or with...continued

Up for a friendly competition? Want to explore NYC? This event is for you! My boyfriend and I loved the challenge and getting to meet other people in the process. We also learned a lot about each other as a couple in the process.

However, one...continued

Well done! A fun day, despite bad weather...We laughed a lot and enjoyed the event. Well organized and structured. My one critique would be that sidebar was a less than ideal starting and finish spot, as the place was loud and packed with...continued

Went with my 70+ year old parents. We had a great time. We ended up being the slowest team, but my parents (from upstate) loved the challenges and running around the city. The weather was fantastic and everyone was so friendly.

We chased around the city trying to find a list of things to take a picture of with us in the picture. It was an absolute BLAST!!! The stories behind the pictures are better than the pictures themselves. The people in the city were great and...continued

We had a great time! This event was easy to book and confirm. The orientation, instructions, clues, etc. were clear and easy to follow. The event leader we had, Jenna, was very nice and helpful. The meeting place was perfect-- central, air...continued

So much fun! Definitely wear sneakers and travel light and get ready to run all over town. We had such a blast seeing the city in a new way, acting a fool, talking to strangers and the best part - ending up with the best photos ever.

Definitely...continued

The event was fun but a bit disappointing at the end. My team ran around the city and followed the rules given. At the end, we were exhausted but had a good time. The only drawback was the event organizers. It was disappointing to know that they...continued

The event was fun. We discovered parts of the subway system we definitely never realized existed. We were surprised at how exhausted we were by the end of the night. Def wear comfortable sneakers/shoes!

This was an extremely fun activity. We had a two person team and did not score that well. However, I learned so much about NYC. We are from LI so we were a bit challenged. Would love to do it again.

I think it was the most fun I have had chasing clues around NYC. Complete strangers are willing to help and help accomplish your tasks. Some of the contestant were a little hard-core but if you ignore them you can have an awesome time. I am...continued

I was unable to go on the scavenger hunt, even though I got at the meeting place at 12:35 p.m. for a 1 p.m. start. I do not have a smart phone, and according to the information sent to me just a few days before the event, I was supposed to tell...continued

Im sure this is much more fun in large teams and with someone who knows the in's & out's of the subways. It was just 2 people on my team (1 from out of town and I didnt know the subways that well nor am I familiar with lower Manhattan). On our...continued
