Frequently Asked Questions

Expect about 2-3 hours of playtime. Many folks choose to make a day of it by including a stop for lunch, or drinks.

Our events go on rain or shine. We will only cancel in the event of severe storms where being out in the elements would be dangerous.

This can certainly be a family affair and is a “G” rated event, but kids will likely not be able to solve all of the challenges without an adult to assist. We have witnessed that kids under 12 tend to become bored and fussy throughout this event, so use your discretion.  The team captain (the one who signs up) must be at least 21 years of age.

Our events are self-starting and self-guided. We take over the downtowns in cities across America one day at a time. Using our smartphone app, your team of up to 6 will be immersed in our fun and challenging themed events. Come in costume, win prizes, and prove your prowess at solving riddles and mysteries.

Events closely resemble escape-style experiences, minus the room.

You can register a team of 2 to 6 players for one low price of $52.50 ($50.00 + $2.50 service charge)

We partner with non-profits across the country to help them raise needed funds. We donate a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold to a local nonprofit group.

You’ll need a fully charged smart device with our app downloaded in advance (we’ll send the app details a few days before your event date).  We suggest an extra battery boost as well (just in case). You may benefit from having a way to make notes, either with another smart device, or pen & paper. Only the team captain can submit answers, however, if necessary, the game can be transferred to another device.

We cannot guarantee that all areas will be accessible. However, we do our best to place clues in areas that are available to all.

You may request a refund up to 7 days prior to the event date. No refunds are provided less than 7 days before events. Email refund requests to hello@thecityscavenger.com.

The events are totally outdoors and played virtually through our app.

Teams are small groups of 2-6 people (your “COVID-pod”). Teams have a 3-hour window of time to start their adventure, allowing for less interaction. The game is self-starting and self-guided, allowing you to chose a route that is less crowded.

There are no better sleuths than our four-legged friends. Since the events are all outdoors, we vote YES to dogs!

In most cities, you can expect 2 +/- miles of walking.

Tickets to our events are ONLY sold through our website. If you see anyone attempting to sell discounted tickets on Facebook, please note that they will not be honored.
