Something New to Do In New Orleans
Urban Adventure Quest launches new smart-phone guided scavenger hunt tour in the Big Easy. New Orleans tour takes participants on an Amazing Race-like adventure through the heart of the city.
Guided from any smart phone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. The adventure begins near the downtown waterfront and takes you on a journey alongside the Mississippi river and through some of the city's famous marketplaces. From Jackson Square to the many fabled streets of this pirates' port-of-call, your team will truly experience it all. The tour requires approximately 1.6 miles of walking. Using a smart phone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Stop midway for some jambalaya or a beignet… why not, it’s your schedule? Offered at a fixed price for a group vs. per person pricing, this city tour/game offers a great value to those on a budget.
Urban Adventure Quest is different from other scavenger hunt tours in one critical way. All route directions, hints and game information are provided to participants through the use of their smart phone. The Company’s Web-based software guides teams during their Quest, while keeping track of points and time. Once a Quest is purchased, participants can play on their own schedule and at their own pace. The tour is purchased online for one low price for the entire group, regardless of the number of people, and lasts about 3.5 hours. Best group size is 4 to 5 people.
“As fans of the T.V. show, Amazing Race, we always wanted to take part in this type of adventure, but couldn’t take the time off from our “real jobs” to do so,” said the Urban Adventure Quest owners, Robbie Bos, Christie and Tami Walker. “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to experience the excitement and adventure of the Amazing Race in just one day?”
Whether you want to compete for a high score or simply use the Quest as a way to explore the city, you’ll experience The Big Easy in a whole new way.
