Race Around The World
An amazing app-based race that takes your team on an
outrageous, high-energy treasure hunt around the world.
Using our proprietary app on a smartphone or tablet, this global treasure hunt will take your team to exotic locations all around the world. Once they reach a location, teams will tackle a fun, location-themed challenge as quickly as they can before moving on to their next mission. We’ve included a wide range of activities so that everyone in your group will have a great time. The app also allows teams to communicate with each other and see everyone’s progress throughout their amazing race event.
- Understand effective information sharing and task allocation.
- Practice collaborating and working with the unexpected.
- Get to know team mates better while building morale & camaraderie.

Event intro (5 minutes) Our fun and energetic staff give the group a quick tutorial on the app and any other event components to ensure a smooth start.
The Race (1-3 hours) Teams solve clues that lead them to a series of “destinations,” each with a themed challenge. These challenges can be located around a hotel, throughout a park, or across town. Some of the games in this high -energy amazing race event include:
- Destination Clues: Teams solve clues in the app to determine their next destination, then dash to the appropriate destination to get instructions for their team challenge.
- Road Block Challenges: These pop-up challenges give teams an opportunity to earn extra points, but they must decide as a team if the extra time is worth the extra points.
- Destination Challenges: When teams “arrive” at destinations, they complete treasure hunt games they are given there before moving on. These can include brainteasers, trivia, video productions, and a wide variety of hands-on activities. Here are a few examples:
- Pyramid Power: Teams travel to Egypt to work on these ancient Egyptian themed puzzles.
- Photo Shoot: On a remote tropical island, teams take a series of hilarious pictures of themselves acting out various jungle scenes.
- Tower Challenge: Teams build a tower to a minimum height using only the materials provided.
- Words of Wisdom: Teams act out a success poster, using quotes from ancient philosophers and matching apparel from the age.
- Lost City: Teams move objects through a path among the ruins, using only the team device. Patience and planning are essential!
Scoring (5 minutes) Teams return from their amazing race event, turn in their materials, and then the final scores are dramatically revealed.
