  • Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park

    Waterwall Park
    2800 Post Oak Boulevard
    Houston, TX
    Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park

    In the heart of the city, the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park is one of Houston’s most beloved, iconic landmarks and community centerpiece for visitors of all ages. To stand in the Waterwall’s mist and be enveloped by the gentle roar of cascading water is one of the city’s most memorable experiences. Walking along the lush canopy of towering live oak trees while in the core of one of the largest business districts in the nation, is inspiring. As one of the most visited attractions in Houston, the Waterwall Park is a popular backdrop for unforgettable moments.

  • Self-Guided Walking Adventure

    Houston
    511 Rusk Street
    Houston, TX
    Self-Guided Walking Adventure

    Puzzling Adventures are a cross between a scavenger hunt, an informative self-guided tour, and The Amazing Race. Each adventure consists of a series of locations that you are guided to where you are required to answer questions or solve puzzles to receive your next instruction. These adventures do not require that you race as quickly as possible from start to finish. Puzzling Adventures believe that part of the fun is enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes of the various locations you will visit. Thus, before being guided to a new location, you will usually have the opportunity to eat, drink, sight-see, or use the bathroom while the game clock is not running. You can even go home and come back another day without penalty. You are only timed on your travel and figuring out the puzzles. Once your adventure is complete you will be ranked based on a combination of your answers to the questions and your game clock time!
