Special Occasions Scavenger Hunts

Special Occasions

Make your party unique from the regular old, humdrum gathering with our cell phone guided scavenger hunts! You and your friends will get to explore the city in a totally new way that gets everyone involved for an unforgettable experience. Our hunts can be played on your own schedule and with your cell phones, so you don’t have to disrupt any other party plans you may have. That’s right, you can do the entire experience using your own phones, with the ease of sending a text message or surfing your phone’s web browser! Our games bring you to an eclectic selection of our handpicked spots and ask you to answer trivia, solve riddles, take silly photos, and more. Whether you are all locals or out-of-towners, long time friends or new acquaintances, our hunts will fit the bill for your next celebration!

How it Works

You’ll all meet up at the starting location and activate your phones. Receive fun challenges that take you to interesting spots around the neighborhood, doing goofy tasks along the way (no previous knowledge is necessary). As you complete each challenge, you’ll earn points and learn fun facts about the area. Our scavenger hunts are brought to you entirely by cell phone, so you can get your score in real time, ask for hints, and view all the great pictures you took along the way whenever you finish. Trust us – your friends will be copying you for their next event!

To set up your party simply purchase one of our standard scavenger hunts. Once you purchase you will receive an activation e-mail that explains how to begin your hunt. If you are interested in adding a bachelorette theme to your event contact us and we will send you a complimentary sheet of fun themed challenges to play alongside your scavenger hunt!

    • "We really enjoyed it. We really loved all of the little facts that were sent out in the message after we gave our answer. It's fun to walk around and check out all of the buildings, but learning about some of the history was very interesting. It was engaging, it kept us moving, and it was fun the whole way through.

      Corey, Santa Monica, CA
    • "Great date- this way you can talk and joke around with your partner, see different things, and you always have something to talk about.

      David, NYC
    • "I have lived in NYC for 23 years and my girlfriend and I had an amazing time with the game. We didn't know what to expect but every single stop was something new that we haven't seen before, or might have seen but never stopped to notice. One of the best dates we had together. Would recommend for anyone!

      Don, NYC

    • "Great for tourists AND locals! I've been living in the city for about a year and a half, and have now completed the three available Boston tours. I've done two with my boyfriend (who also lives in the city) and one with a friend visiting from Minnesota. I thought I knew a lot about this city, but I learned as much as my tourist friend did!

      Lisa, Boston
