What you'll do

It all begins at a scenic spot that's a local favorite. We will get our missions and go over instructions/ground rules for the game. After a warm-up to prepare for this true sport, teams will take off to experience a wide variety of carefully curated locations throughout town. You'll drive in your car (special carless version available on request) to the various checkpoints, solving clues and accepting challenges that involve getting outside your comfort zone at each spot!

Both family and dog friendly, the game alternates between the indoors and outdoors with plenty of alternative spots and free choices too! You'll send photos to your host to document your progress. You can even interact with locals to solve clues! You won’t be able to avoid having fun, uncovering hidden gems and local secrets, making memories, laughing and learning along the way! You’ll be part of the rich culture of this dynamic city! Every turn is full of surprises, so questions in advance are welcomed! Check out our hunts in Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, Galveston and Corpus Christi! Plus Destin, Chicago, Charleston and Carmel! Great for corporate teams and other special groups!
Other things to note
We can offer special diet friendly and rainy day checkpoints - bonus missions too! We can accommodate larger groups, special dates/times, and private groups on request. Custom adventures available!

Where you'll be

Your quest begins west and generally unfolds all over town across roughly 10-15+ surprise checkpoints! Quirky destinations await: whimsical shops, street art, culture, nature, conversation pieces, history, more art, local quirks, culinary delights, etc. We organized the stops in a sensible, geographical fashion, avoiding backtracking/unnecessary travel. Be prepared to drive, but other options exist! Deciding how you'll get around is part of fun!

We came to ABQ for the Balloon Fiesta which was an amazing site to see in itself. After that we had the best experience ever playing and learning all about Albuquerque!! What an awesome way to learn about a city! I’m definitely going to find scavenger hunts in all the cities I visit and am going to check for it when I get home in Nashville TN! I can’t wait to see what I learn there! 💜💜💜

This was so much fun! We got to go places we wouldn’t have gone, see things we wouldn’t have seen, and did things we wouldn’t have done on our own. Our hosts made us feel very comfortable. It was great interacting with them. We made great memories as a family and have the pics to prove it!

Albuquerque was just a stop in our road trip. But the scavanger hunt made it a bit special. Some cool local places that we got to experience. A nice place to experience a new town.

The scavenger hunt was very fun! I did the walking version and it brought me all over the city. The challenges allowed me to interact with the locals in a way that I probably wouldn't have been able to before. If you want to see Albuquerque but don't know where to start, I would definitely recommend doing this. It's also just a fun activity to do during the summer. Good luck to all future scavenger hunters and thanks again to Kat + Alan!
