Looking for a way to turn New York-Central Park into a giant game board? Urban Adventure Quest has created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the amazing race with a three-hour sightseeing tour of New York-Central Park. Guided from any smart phone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the park, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.
The adventure begins at Columbus Circle and will take you on a journey through the southern end of this great preserve. The Quest route leads you from the ball fields and the zoo, through the mall and around its scenic ponds to the area near the park's castle gates. The tour requires just over 2 miles of walking and is easily accessed from local transit systems. Using a smart phone as the guide allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Grab a bite from a street cart or an ice cream in the park - 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.
