The Navy Pier Pressure Scavenger Hunt

Your seaside escape from the city

It’s an amusement park! A garden! A market filled with scrumptious food! A place for great views! There’s something for everyone on Navy Pier.

On this diverse scavenger hunt, your team will tackle a variety of challenges: you’ll decipher clues and answer humorous questions about interesting locations, take creative and unusual Team Photos, find and create unique items, and seek out our Hunt Host for a special challenge. Highlights include the botanical paradise of Crystal Gardens, quirky art in Gateway Park, historic pics, and a chance to lie on the couch for TV shrink Bob Newhart.

This activity is great for groups of all kinds, celebrating all types of occasions—from office outings and alumni gatherings to birthday parties and family reunions. Navy Pier is an ideal location for an evening hunt since the attractions stay open until 8 p.m. or later on most days.
