Columbus Scavenger Hunt Adventure

1 review
Turn Columbus into a giant game board with this fun scavenger hunt adventure! This challenge combines the excitement of the Amazing Race with a 2-3 hour city walking adventure. Guided from any smart phone, teams make their way among well known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Your adventure will begin at one of the city's historic churches and takes you through the expansive Capitol grounds and war memorials. Your Quest route will make its way to historic theaters, famous hotels and other locations with incredible outdoor art to show you the hidden gems of this city. The tour requires approximately 2.0 miles of walking. Using a smartphone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. <br>Note: Pricing is per individual, but teams must book together in order to be included in the same adventure.
$20.52 per adult

The Southern Theatre is one of Columbus Ohio’s classics. After falling to a fire it was rebuilt with fireproof materials with a grand new opening in 1896. The first and only theatre in Columbus to have its own electricity and wells in the basement to supply running water. I love the history this place holds. How joyous to spend a Holiday evening taking in the magic and beauty it holds. We saw the performance Sounds of the Season with world renowned Scottish percussionist Collin Curie. An enjoyable evening.

An absolutely gorgeous space with intimate feel. Unique seats up on the balcony with a railing before each seat to help limit a block in view from those sitting below you. Not a bad seat in the house. Great acoustics.

Beautiful smaller Theatre that is very intimate and cozy! Extraordinary detail in the architecture, so wonderful that it was saved.

Beautiful theater and they do all they can to accommodate- Show was fantastic. Seats are a bit cramped because it's such an old theater but it was worth it! Didn't detract from the experience....suggest if you have a tall male to take an aisle seat for them. Save your cash-the bar is super expensive at intermission!!!

Concerts at the southern are special. They theater sports just as much of a historical feeling and plush architecture and ambience as the Ohio theater but in a smaller setting. It’s hard to call it intimate given its size. Plenty of parking in the garage across which accepts credit cards. Cross the street - there is a policeman to help pedestrians across on show nights. Lots of restaurant options nearby. LOTS. Enjoy the show . Even the balcony tickets in the back offer a good view and the sound is excellent.
