About Operation City Quest
Looking for a family friendly activity? We can help you explore the city with our fun photo scavenger hunt. Using your smartphone, you'll be given a list of items to find in the form of riddles and challenges to complete on our scavenger hunt app. You'll go look for the item described in the riddle, complete the accompanied challenge, and send in a photo to get points. Your points will show up on the app's leaderboard so you can see how you're doing compared to teams all across the country! Operation City Quest can be played in any city, no matter how big or small!
Don't worry, you won't be alone. You'll have a remote host that will be communicating with you during your game via a chat feature on the app if you need help or have a question. They can also give you hints and additional *mystery* challenges!
The goal of the scavenger hunt is to find all the items, earn your way to the top of the leaderboard, and more importantly, to have fun with family and friends!
Our games usually take about 2 hours and most teams walk around 2 miles during their scavenger hunt.
