A delightful way to spend time with friends while exploring.

Booked the adventure with a dear friend as a way to have a chance to visit. She is more familiar with Balboa Park than I, but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. It was fun to hear her reminisce about her favorite memories. I was able to see parts of the park that I hadn't explored before. I would whole heartedly recommend this adventure to anyone.

This was a team building event for us! Had a great time!

I did this as a team building event for my staff. Every single one of us had a GREAT time. The challenges made you think and have a lot of fun at the same time. Not easy, but not too hard either. We split ourselves into 2 teams and made it competitive! Other managers have asked for our feedback and I am pretty sure more teams from my office will be jumping on this as a team building event for their teams.

Great way to explore Balboa Park!

The scavenger hunt was so much fun! The puzzles were challenging but doable, even by my two daughters (11 and 10 years old). There are a lot of places I wouldn't have seen had I not done the scavenger hunt. I thought the cost was worth it and highly recommend this experience.
