My family (two parents and two teens) moderately enjoyed this activity. We purchased two tickets for the four of us which was fine. We would have been very disappointed... continued

Almost fun, but seemed a little too easy and a little too short.

This is a lot of fun. That said you have a choice of following 2 different leads and as this is outside you should consider that if you have children.

Description

Critical Mission Intel:

You’ve qualified for the mission. Now see the city as a spy by taking a GPS-guided tour of D.C. and its neighborhoods. It’s your chance to explore the spy capital of the world. You’ll be sent clues, codes, audio intercepts, and everything you need to complete our newest secret mission, Spy in the City™.

Armed with a Geo-Cobra GPS device, it’s up to you to uncover a world of ruthless spies — not to mention all the history, mystery and landmarks along the way. Whether you go as a group, or as your own undercover agent, it’s sightseeing like you’ve never seen. Begin debriefing.

  • Each Agent receives his or her own Geo-COBRA GPS unit and disposable earphones. To optimize secure communication (and be a spy who saves the environment) you are encouraged to use your own earphones that plug into any MP3 player.

Please note that each ticket is good for one GPS unit, which up to four people can share. Some people may wish to have their own GPS unit and should purchase additional tickets.

Spy in the City is recommended for anyone 10+ who wants to be a spy. Agents under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Great for private parties or corporate events.

You’ll walk outside on the streets of D.C. for the whole mission, so please dress in appropriate spy garb (blend in, be comfortable, prepare for rain).

Allow about one hour for Spy in the City, which takes you on a one mile circuit — how long it takes depends on your spy skills!

Spy in the City does not include admission to the Spy Museum.
