City Race

“Set out on a challenging 3-hour hunt through one of L.A.’s most diverse neighborhoods in this fun-filled CityRace Urban Adventure Hunt! Teams of 2 to 4 players use brainpower to crack codes, solve tricky puzzles, research little-known facts and more… all while racing against other teams to be first to the finish with the most correct answers. From the heart of downtown’s historic core to the “village” of Little Tokyo, this challenging hunt will take you through some of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. You’ll discover some of the oldest – and newest – sites in downtown L.A. as you solve cryptic clues and brain-teasing puzzles in this iconic urban adventure through L.A.’s past, present and future. This hunt is challenging.
