Every summer, our department has a summer retreat. During the retreat, we usually work on our calendars for the upcoming academic year and have a presentation jam packed with information.
This past Friday, however, things were shaken up a bit and we headed to an Escape Room to “Save the World”. Given only one hour, our job was to work together to find clues, complete puzzles, discover secret doors, and solve a greater mystery.
And, guess what? We did it with only eight seconds to spare! Talk about fun! I had never experienced anything like this.
Once we were done, I immediately thought what an amazing family activity!
But, what if we took things a little bit further with a fun scavenger hunt adventure?
Well, we are!
We are turning Chicago into a giant game board with an amazing fun scavenger hunt adventure from Urban Adventure Quest!
With Urban Adventure Quest, we’ll be combining the excitement of the Amazing Race with a three-hour Chicago city tour. In teams, we’ll use our smart phone as our guide to make our way amongst well-known and overlooked gems of the Windy City, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.
Imagine how fun that will be!
Please, be advised, that although teams can start whenever they are ready and can play at your own pace, players can only play Urban Adventure Quest scavenger hunts during daylight hours.
