Looking for a way to turn Portland into a giant game board?

Urban Adventure Quest has created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the Amazing Race with a three-hour sightseeing tour of Portland. Guided from any smart phone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history.

The adventure begins in the heart of downtown at Pioneer Courthouse Square and takes you on a journey to see the best sights of the city. From the Arts district to Powell’s bookstore and Voodoo Doughnuts … as well as amazing stops in between, you will enjoy all that Portland has to offer. The tour requires approximately 2.4 miles of walking and you will also experience the city’s famous street cars.

Using a smart phone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Stop to enjoy lunch or take in the sights… why not, it’s your schedule? Offered at a fixed price for a group vs. per person pricing, this city tour/game offers a great value to those on a budget.

    I am originally from Portland and I moved back with my daughter who just turned 10. She recently learned about the Lewis &Clark Trail in school and is thirsty to learn more about Portland. We just spent the day at the Pittock Mansion. What better way to conquer her thirst than to win this spectacular prize?!

    As an avid Treasure Mountain player growing up, scavanger hunts are a deep part of my soul. Pick me and I will remove the Master of Mischief from his throne.

    My girlfriend just got back from a 4 month travel around South America. I am trying to give her a warm welcome back with a tour around her favorite city, Portland! She absolutely loves scavanger hunts! So this would be the perfect activity to both do a scavanger hunt and get to know the beautiful city of Portland!
    It would be great if we got to do it!
    Thank you PDX PIPELINE!
