This was just a really fun way to spend the day exploring dt Santa Cruz! We bounced into shops we wouldn’t have normally gone in and met people on our journey as well! Great fun, and WE GOT 6 million points!!! 🤣🤗

We had a fantastic time wandering around the town looking for our clues. Walked into shops that we normally wouldn’t have gone into and ended up really enjoying the hunt!! This is such a fantastic idea! Can’t wait to try them in different towns around the country:)

This review is way overdue. My nieces and I did this back in late June and had a fantastic time. Very clever concept. While we didn’t have time to finish our entire list, we had tons of fun in downtown Santa Cruz for about 2 hours. We took pictures and made silly videos with the locals and visited Santa Cruz retailers we wouldn’t have found otherwise. Something we definitely recommend in Santa Cruz and something we will definitely do in another city. Thanks for a great time!

Not really a scavenger hunt, more like an improv. More acting things out and taking a picture of yourself, then hunting for things. Very misleading.

My kids and I did the scavenger hunt yesterday. It was a lot of fun and professionally run. We did a waking/driving combo. We saw some cool places and met nice people. I highly recommend doing this activity. It’s a new way to see Santa Cruz!

We were unable to complete hunt, but what we did was good. Kate was fantastic and even gave us a coupon for a free hunt, because we were unable to complete. Would definitely suggest going with a large group, competing against each other. Possibly having a designated person to handle phone communication. Txs Kate
