Win $750 with our "Road Rally" Scavenger Hunt!
A road rally is a kind of motorized sport. Similar to "The Amazing Race," it is a competition of accuracy not speed. Participants are sent out in teams, with a goal of navigating the course from start to finish while solving clues and completing challenges along the way - then arriving at the final destination first.

Our road rally scavenger hunt requires the driver and their team to decode clues while still maintaining the most efficient travel time possible. Road Rally's (or sometimes called car rally) scavenger hunts have been celebrated across America for years and years. Participants are given clues about where to start, and they must solve a clue or complete a puzzle at every stage along the way.

Early Bird tickets are $100 per car- After June 15th, tickets are $125 per car
