Self-Guided Walking AdventureHouston
511 Rusk Street
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!
