The Grand Central Scramble Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Uncover the secrets of America’s most amazing train station!

Kids and adults work together to learn the secrets of this amazing train station. To win, you’ll have to go nuts in the Whispering Gallery, spot surprises in the stars in the “sky,” find TV celebs in the fabulous food court, stand on fish under an upside-down tree in the Grand Central Market, count creepy critters trying to invade a “ship,” and more.

Along the way, your team will also scout for great opportunities to complete photo challenges. For instance, can you come up with a creative way to get your smiling faces and the starry Grand Central ceiling in the same selfie?

This game is great for school groups and tour groups, suitable for ages 7 and up. Each team must be accompanied by at least one adult. The fun part is how the game fosters collaboration among the kids and between the kids and chaperones.

A 5-star review on Google: I helped organize a trip to NYC for 50 Girl Scouts and asked Watson Adventures to set up a scavenger hunt for us in Grand Central Station. What a unique and fun experience!! I cannot say enough good things about our two hosts, Mia and Correy! Both actors, in addition to hunt hosts, they really knew how to handle our large group, making sure everyone felt included and had a great time!”

“I have to say that we had such a fantastic time doing the Grand Central Scramble Scavenger Hunt. We loved enjoying this with our students and seeing them using critical thinking skills to find the answers. Thank you for all your hard work!” –Jenelle Hamer, Glen Ridge High School Special Educator

Another 5-star Google review:We celebrated my daughter’s 12th birthday with 14 kids at the Grand Central Station Scavenger hunt. The kids had a blast. The questions were perfect and it was a very unique way to celebrate. Thanks Watson Adventures!
