Tombstone: 2-Hour Small Group Scavenger Hunt Game

1. Tombstone: 2-Hour Small Group Scavenger Hunt Game

Looking for a way to turn Tombstone 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 Tombstone with a wild-west theme.  Guided from any smart phone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.  The scavenger hunt adventure begins in the heart of this famous western town and takes you on a well-designed course to historic saloons, theaters and of course, the O.K. Corral.  This mini Quest tour requires approximately 1 mile of walking.  Using a smart phone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play.  Stop to watch a shoot-out, or grab a refreshing sarsaparilla to wet your whistle and go at your own pace. 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.
