Full description
Looking for a way to turn downtown Boise into a giant board game? Urban Adventure Quest have created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the amazing race with a three-hour sightseeing tour of Boise. Be guided through any smart phone. Groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning about local history. The adventure begins at the Idaho State Capitol, and continues on to explore historic landmarks, unique city art, the Basque neighborhood and other hidden gems of the city.   Using a smartphone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want, and to determine their own pace of play. Stop for a bite at one of the many restaurants, or have a Sangria in the Basque Block. Offered at a fixed price for a group versus per person pricing, this city tour and game offers great value to those on a budget. Points of interest include: • State Capitol (free admission) • Freak Alley (free admission) • Anne Frank Memorial (free admission) • Boise Art Museum (stop outside) • The Basque Block (admission ticket not included)
Includes
  • Smartphone scavenger hunt
  • Smartphone or iPad with Internet capability

This was a good alternate to the typical outing of dinner and a movie. For reference, there were 18 puzzles/riddles to solve and we logged nearly 7,000 steps walking so be prepared for the energy needed to complete this. I would recommend bringing water to drink along the way or stop in at JUMP to use their water fountain (it is about halfway through the experience). Having said that, it took us just under 2 hours to finish everything and we weren’t rushing through any of it.

We absolutely enjoyed it!

Understanding just how to get started was a bit confusing. Thankful for the crew at GetYourGuide, we were able to get help with the process. The actual activity was fun, mind provoking, helpful in pointing out fun facts and things we might have missed. We enjoyed the experience and would try it again in another area!

3 hours of great fun!

We did the scavenger hunt on bicycles, so we were able to move fairly quickly. Would have taken a bit longer walking. Overall, a very fun event that involved the whole team in figuring out and searching for the answers. This wasn't simply "find a location and snap a picture." You have to do some simple math and figure out the puzzles to get to the answers, which made is so much more interesting. And...in meantime, you learned quite a bit about the area around downtown Boise. I would highly recommend this event!
