The Secrets of the Loop Scavenger Hunt

Discover the historic heart of Chicago…

…on a team-building activity that reveals the secrets of the Picasso in Daley Plaza, the Cloud Gate in Millennium Park, humorous gargoyles, marvels of architecture, and much more. You’ll follow a trail of clues in search of answers to tricky, humorous questions about the unusual sights and facts you find.

On this Chicago scavenger hunt your team might seek…

  • A fishy foreigner among presidents 1 and 16
  • A Braille “mini mi” that points to a raging fire
  • A Pope and four Cooks stuck near a fountain
  • A skyline scramble
  • A famous magician who hides between the lions

You’ll play the game on your phone, using our browser-based app. Our Hunt Host will meet you at the start to set you up and meet you again at the end to reveal the final results. Along the way, you might also be challenged to complete team photo challenges and perhaps a surprise bonus challenge.

This group game is perfect for corporate outings, locals or tourists looking for some secret city history, student or alumni gatherings, birthday parties, and any other occasion where you’re looking for an activity that’s unique, fun, and funny.

An International or ESL Edition is also available for groups with players whose first language might not be English. A Kids Edition is also available.

On select weekends, you can join games for the general public—just click on the calendar button below to see the schedule!

What clients are saying about the Loop Scavenger Hunt

“Five stars. Our group hosted a team retreat with Watson Adventures in Chicago and it was so much fun! Our staff not only enjoyed the experience but were able to work with people across teams to discover each other’s leadership qualities and talents throughout the 1.5 hour scavenger hunt. Our host, Valerie, was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone had an enjoyable time.” —a review posted on Google

“Our corporate finance team participated in the Secrets of the Loop Scavenger Hunt. We had an absolute blast! The scavenger hunt was extremely engaging with the absolute right scale of challenge. My entire team of 30 people work and live in Chicago, and the hunt brought us into buildings we’ve never been into before and guided our attention to details that we otherwise would have overlooked. Thank you, Watson Adventures!”
