I loved the mental challenge of the clues and then being able to actively go to another destination to find the next clue. I saw things in Los Angeles that I have never seen before. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with excitement and fun....More

No matter how fast or leisurely you decide to undertake this scavenger hunt, you'll have a blast. Clues/riddles are challenging but you'll eventually solve them. A bit of walking/jogging, but nothing terribly strenuous. Great opportunity to explore bits of downtown and Hollywood you don't normally...More

There will be moments of shear frustration, and there will be moments of utter euphoria. When you finally cross that symbolic finish line, you'll feel a rather large sense of accomplishment. Don't bother Googling answers to their puzzles, because this race really is about the...More
