Discover the newest craze in Urban Adventuring: the Adventure Quest. Using your smart phone as your guide, discover Dallas in a whole new way, learning history and picking up clues in this amazing race.
What to Expect
Urban Adventure Quest is the newest craze in city fun. Combining the excitement of the Amazing Race with the information of a sightseeing tour, you will go deep into the heart of Dallas for an adventure you'll never forget.
Using any smart phone, you and your group make your way along well known streets and even see some overlooked gems of the city. As you make your way, your phone offers hints, letting you solve the puzzle and completing challenges while learning local history. It's a great way to explore a city in a new and exciting way.
As you move, you'll be given historical and local history, beginning in the heart of the downtown district. You'll walk past artwork, historic monuments, and much more. The tour requires about 2.5 miles (4km) of walking, as well as use of the local transit.
Let your smart phone be your guide. It'll lead you to some amazing Texas BBQ! Stay and relax a while– you make your schedule – but remember, this is a race, so don't rest too long!

What to Remember
A team may have as many people as you like. However, the Quest is typically best with no more than 6 people on each team. Large groups can break up into many teams and compete for the best point score and time. Each Team needs to purchase a Quest with a unique email address and password.
All information you need to start your Quest will be sent to your smart phone, which will be your guide (you will not meet with an actual person).
You may purchase your Quest days, weeks or months before your adventure.
We suggest bringing water, snacks, money, a city map, calculator, pencil & paper and, of course, a FULLY CHARGED Smart Phone.
