The Loop has never been so…loopy!
Introduce kids to the historic heart of Chicago on a game that will get them learning and laughing. Children ages 7 and up will work with their favorite adults to scour the Loop for answers to tricky, amusing questions. Starring: Daley Plaza’s Picasso, Millennium Park, the Chicago Cultural Center, Marshall Field’s (aka Macy’s), and much more.
You might tackle such questions as…
- Inside a big room with wood walls in the Chicago Cultural Center’s GAR lobby, you can see the names of Civil War battles. What two battles can you put together to come up with what sounds like a way for five people to eat vegetables? Answer: Five Forks and Pea Ridge.
- The sign for the historic Chicago Theatre is a landmark in its own right. Go inside but stay sort of outside to find out: what sounds like a bird, a car, and a doorbell? Answer: The organ, as explained by a sign in the foyer.
No knowledge of the Loop or its history is required to win. The hunt is all about paying attention to the details and playing with your team.
It’s great for school field trips, birthday parties, scout packs, and basically any activity where you want a diverse group of kids and adults to collaborate on an adventure.
What delighted teachers are saying
“I have taken students from my high school to four Watson Adventures hunts. Each time, the students have had a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm I have seen, and the teamwork that has been displayed, has been thrilling for me as an educator. My job is to keep students engaged, and Watson Adventures does that with ease. Not only are the students doing something fun—they don’t even realize how much they are learning in the process.”
