    Death On The Rocks

    We really enjoyed the scavenger hunt! It was a great way to get outside and enjoy the city in a different way. We both have lived here for several years and hadn’t been to so many of the locations this took us to! The clues were not too easy or too difficult where its not fun. Overall, a great day out!

    Beautiful experience, group absolutely loved it. Great history and storyline, only thing is that there could’ve been more food around the areas used. Recommend eating before you start.
