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 place is a monster! Parking is around but it’s sort of clustered. The actual convention center has a parking garage as well. Traffic seemed to move well around building during Arnold event as well. Inside had quite a few food places, WiFi, lots of lounges. I will add anyone and their brother can just walk in off the streets. There was some homeless dude asking people for money when we were there. So if you do have a permit to carry! Rock it!

We attended the COA Midwest Nationals Cheer competition here. Their website is great and offers the option to pre-purchase your parking ticket in four different garages. This is a huge advantage for this type of event. Some times your performance time isn’t til later in the day and parking can be a nightmare. Having the option to prepay and hold our parking spot took a lot of stress of of us for the weekend. The center itself is very nice. There is plenty of signage and employees around to help you locate places/things. Everything was clean and well stocked. The food/drink options were top notch. Attending these type of cheer events can be a little crazy and you never know what you are heading bro with each new venue but this is definitely one of the top spots for this year!

This place is massive. Parking is a problem because so many events are booked at the same time. We were there for a dance competition and at the same time there was a tattoo convention. This was quite a difference in dress, manners and typed of people to be placed near each other. The dance competition had mainly little girls. The tattoo people looked very strange. Food in the conference center is limited and expensive. There are very few maps to tell people where the different areas are in the center.

I attended a conference (headquartered in the Hyatt) and trade show in the Convention Center this month. The location is great. Easily accessible from the airport by public transportation or other services. There are many hotels and restaurants within walking distance. Best of all is the beautiful convention center.

I attended a 3-day convention here. It was probably not considered a large event as this venue can host a very large convention in its spaces. Signage was a bit thin to me on the first day, trying to orient myself and find the meeting rooms and marketplace, but I did manage. The staff who helped me were apparently part of this particular convention, not convention center staff, but I eventually found the right meeting room and figured out how to navigate back to the hotel. By the second day, I noticed the signage on the ceiling that pointed my way, so that tells you why I thought signage was missing. There were a couple of decent sandwich and coffee kiosks inside the convention center, but there were also plenty of eating spots just outside the event, on the street. Easy walk to all sorts of places for a quick lunch, including back to the hotel dining spot. There were interesting art installations here and there, especially at the north entrance, and I liked that I could walk via an enclosed overpass back to my hotel if weather was bad. If this same convention is held here next year, I will likely return.
