It all begins at a scenic spot that's a local favorite. This is your sequel to our first hunt. Hunt #2 takes place downtown. (Hunt #1 begins west of Austin and ends just south of the river and downtown.) We will get our missions and go over instructions/ground rules for the game. After a warm-up to prepare for this true sport, teams will take off to experience a wide variety of carefully curated locations throughout town. You'll walk (or drive, rideshare, scooter, bike, pedicab, etc.) to the various checkpoints, solving clues and accepting challenges that involve getting outside your comfort zone at each spot! Both family and dog friendly, the game alternates between the indoors and outdoors with plenty of alternative spots and free choices too! You'll send photos to your host to document your progress. You can even interact with locals to solve clues! You won’t be able to avoid having fun, uncovering hidden gems and local secrets, making memories, laughing and learning along the way! You’ll be part of the rich culture of this dynamic city! Every turn is full of surprises, so questions in advance are welcomed! Scavenge to find our other hunts available in the US and Mexico!

Quirky destinations await: whimsical shops, street art, culture, nature, conversation pieces, history, more art, local quirks, culinary delights, etc. We organized the stops in a sensible, geographical fashion, avoiding backtracking/unnecessary travel. Be prepared to drive, but other options exist! Deciding how you'll get around is part of fun!
A rain or shine activity! We can accommodate larger groups, special dates/times, and private groups on request. Custom adventures available! Great for corporate teams, bachelor/bachelorettes, etc.!
