Amazing - natives can reconnect with the city and tourists will have a BLAST - Fantastic experience - loved by natives and tourists alike! In our experience everyone learned something new, even those of us that lived here for years, although it is a more touristy experience. The questions are fun and challenging and the route really highlights the interconnected nature of Manhattan! We were a group ranging from 17-23 yo people. Although a perfect way to get to know Manhattan for families, the Quest might be more challenging for small children since the questions are of medium difficulty and require literacy. It was so fun we didn’t even notice all the walking! You can take two breaks during the challenge (which we did once to get dinner) which means you can do the Quest at your own pace without penalty! Again, could not recommend more!

This hunt takes you to places and... - <p>This hunt takes you to places and sights that may have been overlooked. Its a real discovery tour. You go at your own pace. We did the hunt over two days. It can be done in all kinds of weather just dress warmly. Be aware that during the holiday season it may be difficult to start the tour in Times Square due to all the set up for New Years Eve. We called upon the security staff to assist with the first two clues that involve statues we could not get close to. Great for the family or group of friends. Only one person needs to purchase the tour for their phone. I bought for two but only needed one. Great way to see and experience New York! Something different and innovative. If you love Escape Room challenges, you will love this challenging while fun scavenger hunt!</p>

Fun but save it for spring/summer - This activity was fun but it’s preferable to do it in the spring/summer. A lot of the outdoor places I had to go to were either blocked off or covered in snow.

Waste of money. - Poor web design and support. Unable for two millennials to gain access, create log in and access the game. Never used tge game for which we paid. Frustrating.

Wasted money - Total waste. Started adventure and by question number 2 my group gave up. Trivia questions were more of a google search. We didn't even bother continuing. Money wasted.
