The Amazing Urban Scavenger Hunt Is On!

Downtown Fort Worth

If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity, but you’re tired of the same old thing then you’ll be glad to know that there’s a scavenger hunt happening right now in Fort Worth and you can join in anytime that you want.

The Amazing Urban Scavenger Hunt combines old fashioned treasure hunting with new technology for a spin on scavenger hunting that’s fun for anyone no matter what their age. Turn Fort Worth into a game board over a three hour period by logging in from any smart phone. Clues and challenges will be sent whenever you log in and you’ll have a great time decoding puzzles with your team as you learn a little bit about Forth Worth history.

How It Works

The Urban Adventure Quest begins whenever you’re ready to start. There’s no need to wake up bright and early unless you want to. Play on a weekend or on a Tuesday afternoon, the choice is yours. You can pay ahead of time or when you’re ready to begin playing by visiting the Urban Adventure Quest website here. The fee is normally $49 for a team, but if you use the promotional code VISITFW you’ll save almost 20 percent, paying only $39.20 for a team of two to five people.

After you’ve made your payment you’ll be able to log in on your smartphone by entering the email and password you chose when you ordered. Grab your iPhone, iPad, Droid, Blackberry, or other smart phone that’s internet-ready and gather your friends when you’re ready and begin.

Each city’s quest begins in an iconic area, and Fort Worth’s begins at the courthouse. From there, you’ll make your way along the Heritage Trail in search of panthers, before encountering a “giant” of a businessman. There’s history, mystery and modern marvels galore crammed into a game that lasts about two and a half hours. You may think you know everything there is to know about Fort Worth, but you’re sure to learn something new after this immersive experience.

Your quest will have between 18 and 25 Urban Location Clues or Quest Challenges along the route. Each location or Quest Challenge offers a chance to earn 30 points for a correct answer. Incorrect guesses will cost you five points, as will each hint that you have to use. If you’re stumped you can choose to skip your question, which will move you onto the next location without earning any points.

So the next time your family or friends are complaining that there’s nothing to do, hop online and sign up for the Amazing Urban Scavenger Hunt! It’s fun and educational for people of all ages.
