Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can participate in the hunts?

Does each hunt have a guide?

Each hunt is self-guided at your own pace, you will not have a guide accompany your team out on the course, but you will have a guide engaging you via text and available by phone throughout the entire experience.

Do we play the hunts with guests other than our group?

You participate with your own group, unless you choose to pair up with other teams along the way.

Can we start at a different time other than what we booked?

Technically no, we stagger the start times of our hunts to keep launch waits down and enjoyable for all guests. If you want to start early or are running late, please call, we will try our best to accomodate your group.

What do we do if we are running late?

Please call us if you are going to be more than 10 minutes late to start your hunt. We will try our best to accomodate your group, but may have to start other groups before yours.
