Travel on the Atlanta Streetcar system to see the
sights, take pictures, solve trivia and have a blast.
Using the downtown streetcar system for transportation, teams navigate around the city to see some of Atlanta’s biggest attractions and landmarks. Each station in the game area has several opportunities for earning points. Teams set their own pace, and decide which stations they think will give them the maximum points. They will solve puzzles, take pictures of themselves doing outrageous things, decipher codes, find secret locations. and face off against other teams in mini challenges while they work cohesively as a team in a high-energy, fun way.

The Hunt (1-2 hours) Each stop along the route has different challenges from each of the following categories. Teams decide which points they want to go after, while keeping an eye on the streetcar schedule.
- Facilitator Challenges: If teams spot a facilitator along the route or on the streetcar, they can tackle a bonus challenge that is sure to be worthy of a few laughs and picture or two.
- Station Challenges: These hands-on challenges are themed to match the history and flavor of the location they are found in.
