We love the TV show and were excited to try this out. We were not disappointed! We had fun figuring out the clues and running from clue to clue. We did have to get 1 hint, but still finished at 2:02pm in first place! A great way to get your competitive juices flowing. Highly recommend!

If I could give this 6 stars I would. We simply had a wonderful time. This adventure alone makes me want to go back to L.A. very soon and do another of this company's races. Well thought out, the clues are a challenge but not too tough. What a great way to see an area that we likely would not... More

Challenging clues, pretty well organized, got to see a lot of the area in one day! A lot of walking/running so be prepared!

Puzzles were mysterious, fun, challenging, and rewarding. Got to see cool parts of Santa Monica that we've never experienced before. Even in the pouring rain, we kicked booty. Super fun day.

This was easily one of the most fun things I have done in a LONG time. Well organized, well run, and very challenging. The puzzles are tough, but solvable, and none of them left you thinking, "How would I ever get that?!?" Solving each puzzle to get to the next step was very rewarding, and never knowing when the last... More

Wonderful way to spend a day in Santa Monica especially for guest. Local knowledge only a slight advantage. More about wisdom and luck, than physical conditioning.

I didn't know what to expect, have never done one before. Soooo much fun! Clues are very smart, some of them were really hard. I though I knew the area very well, still had to think hard and fast. We had a lot of fun! Totally will do it again. Absolutely recommend

Except for the mix up at the end of the race, it was great! This race really challenges your body and mind. For those of who don't like to run, like me, it's possible to complete this race in decent time, just use all the brain matter you have!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
