Lots of Urban FUn

This adventure was a great way to interact creatively with friends and explore parts of DC we've never been to. We were able to get way with solving all 18 questions without using any hints - be careful with spelling, extra spaces, and abbreviations though. We wished the questions were a bit more challenging and had more riddles/solving complex problems (for an age reference, we are all in our mid-twenties). A group of 5 was great for this. Definitely recommend, and will be checking out in other cities!

All of my students were totally engaged

I did this scavenger quest with my advanced ESL class. Since everyone on the team could access the clues on their phone, everyone was totally engaged. The STUDENTS led themselves; the teacher (me) just supported and confirmed. We were guided to some fun, interactive sights on the National Mall, so we chose to hang out and enjoy a few of those.

Fun for the family

The scavenger hunt was indeed fun. It could be better though. Ending could have been better. It was a bit anticlimactic.
