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 hard to get 2nd place too. On the way home we couldnt stop talking about what we should have done to win and where we went wrong.
The race starts at the beach which can be accessed by street parking if you don't mind walking, but I suggest just paying for beach parking ($8)because at the end of the race you will be considering calling a taxi to get to your car because you will be pretty exhuasted. Winners and losers get 2 drinks (beers or soda), and chips and salsa for free at the end. We spent this time recapping the day with our competitors, sharing what we struggled on and what was easy.
The clues and puzzles came in all different forms. Sometimes, actual people were our clues, making the race very challenging at times.
Bring, sunblock, water, snacks, sunglasses, comfortable clothes and shoes. A backpack is also useful to hold cell phones and clues.
Go!!! Buy your tickets, and have a blast!!
