More Information



This scavenger hunts is not a race, and participants are not encouraged to run. The hunts are a test of your wits and your teamwork, not a test of physical fitness. There is a deadline, but most teams get to most questions without having to rush.

Running Time:  Hunting time is almost always two hours for adult hunts. Add another 15 minutes or so at the start for distributing materials and another 15 minutes at the end for scoring and announcing the results.

Prizes: Each member of the winning team will receive a token prize—it’s a sur-prize. It is not a brand-new car or trip to Europe for one reason: the more valuable the prize, the more incentive people have to cheat. And this is not that sort of competition.

About the Ticket Supplier: Watson Adventures

Watson Adventures sprang from the mind of Bret Watson, a veteran writer and editor (and occasional stand-up comedian), who started creating scavenger hunts in the early ’90s for friends as a way to share his unique take on the lighter side of museums. As word of the unusual scavenger hunts spread, companies began to ask Bret to let them get in the game, and a business was born.

Since then, Watson Adventures has grown to span the nation, with more than 200,000 people participating in hunts, including employees of more than 1,000 prestigious corporations. All the while, Watson Adventures’ scavenger hunts have received more media raves and other acclaim than any other company of its kind. Below, you can learn more about the creative, clever crew who’ve made our success possible.
