How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was the first Urban Adventure I've participated in and, according to others (and the organizers), this is the most difficult. The clues were VERY hard to decipher and I don't know how anyone could complete it without the help of the internet (a few teams had laptops). Luckily we had an iphone and also placed many calls to a friend, but we were still unable to complete all the clues or collect all the scavenger items. It was a bit stressful, but fun and a great way to learn about the city. The experience, as a whole, was good and I would definitely do it again for another city. The only real downside to the experience was that at the end, other than the winners, we weren't given any sort of souvenir -- a button or sticker or ANYTHING would have been nice especially considering how much we paid to participate. They called down all the winners and started to hand out prizes and it seems that was the signal to the rest of us that it was over. A bit of an anticlimactic ending to the whole thing. lol.

Laptops, internet-capable phones, a knowledgable friend to call are all plusses
