If you are into arcane, oblique type mind games this may be the ticket for you. We were, up to a point, but the edge or thrill of navigating ourselves around Santa Monica and Venice was actually detracted from by the clues. I suggested my 20 year...continued

Super fun. Was a great way to see the city in a way I hadn't seen it before. Bob was high energy and made us really excited to run around. I'd definitely recommend it to other people... In fact, I already have!

I loved it! I had a sibling visiting from out of town, and this was the most fun we had all weekend. "Let's face it," she said, "the LACMA was cool, but this was awesome!" We finished in second place... we are a competitive family. We worked...continued

This was an awesome event. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes. We did a lot of running and got quite sweaty. Very challenging. We had a great time!

We signed up to what we thought would just be an interesting thing to do for my birthday...and ended up having an "amazing" day!!! My wife, my oldest son, and I were the champions for the day too! There isn't enough room to fill everyone in on how...continued

The event is fun and faced-paced, challenging and cleaver. Never a dull moment! Exercise your brain as you solve puzzles and body as you race around Santa Monica and Venice. This event definitely expanded my knowledge of an area I thought I...continued

More fun than I thought it was going to be, and I appreciated that the clues were truly challenging, but not impossible. Great if you like word puzzles - way more difficult if you don't.

This experience was "literally amazing". We were a group of five friends playing. Although we had moments of pure frustration and it was absolutely exhausting, it is definitely something you have to do. We are already trying to figure out when...continued

This was such an AMAZING DAY!!! EVERYONE should do this! It was by far the most physically and mentally exhausting and 100% hilarious thing I have done in the longest time. The best Saturday to have fun and sight see in the process. This race...continued

This race killed it! A lot of fun and great interaction with Santa Monica/ Venice area. It was a long race so I recommend being ready for it. There were a couple of teams with teens, but the teens didn't seem to enjoy it as much as us 25-30...continued

This was so much fun! My friend and I (50's) and my daughter and her friends (20's) competed in two different teams. They just beat my friend and I by less than a second. The puzzles were just they right amount of challenge. You had to think...continued

It is a race through Santa Monica, very much like the TV show, look for clues, solve them and try to finish first. Bob was the host, and he was great, funny, friendly and encouraging. The adventure was a great way to see different parts of the...continued

This was our second time running this race (well the first for the Santa Monica version) and we had a great time once again. The clues are challenging enough to make you think but not so hard that you get frustrated. It is a great way to spend...continued

What a great way to have fun with friends and family! We went on Saturday April 14, 2012, and can not believe it was so fantastic. The organizer Mitch was entertaining and told us exactly how we would feel with some of the clues. He was so right.,...continued
