Looking for a way to turn Catalina Island into a giant game board? Urban Adventure Quest has created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the amazing race with a two-hour biking tour of Avalon on Catalina Island. Guided from any smart phone, groups bicycle among well-known and overlooked gems of the island, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.
The adventure begins in the heart of Avalon and takes you on a well-designed course along the ocean front, up the canyon and back down through the town to the scenic waterfront. The tour requires less than 3 miles of riding in total. Using a smart phone as "the guide" allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Stop for an ice cream or enjoy the view, why not, it's your schedule? Offered at a fixed price for a group vs. per person pricing, this city tour/game offers a great value to those on a budget.

Rented a golf cart and had a blast with the scavenger hunt! A few questions are very hard (cross word puzzle question) but we attempted them anyway and we could never find a cannon by the play ground. I think it has been removed. They had a crew there cutting the bricks so you might want to change or modify this question. My 13 year old son and I loved it though!

We really enjoyed walking aroud, taking in the views and learning something about the Island. We look forward to staying on the Island next time for a couple of nights and maybe doing the golf cart tour.

After we rented the bikes (I thought they were included) doing the online scavenger hunt was really fun. I liked they we could go at our own pace and stop and see the sights and shop along the way. Great way to see the island.
