The Heart of Hartford Scavenger Hunt

If Mark Twain liked it, you know it must be good

In 1868, the often-crotchety author wrote of Hartford, “Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see, this is the chief.” This celebratory scavenger hunt will send you in search of the best of the Constitution State’s capital city, but in a way that Twain never imagined.

You’ll take creative and unusual Team Photos, find and create unique items, seek out staffers for a surprise challenge, and decipher clues to answer tricky questions about interesting locations.

Highlights include…

  • Trees with secrets in Bushnell Park
  • The pistol-packin’ jumper in the oldest carousel in America
  • The special tribute that’s part of the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch
  • A hole-in-the-wall with a mother’s unusual advice
  • A monumental woman wearing Madonna’s bra
  • A not-at-all sleepy tribute to the inventor of anesthesia

This team game is great for corporate outings, alumni reunions, birthday or bachelorette parties—you name it. You’ll be amazed at the hidden wonders in and around Bushnell Park and the State Capitol.

Discover the art of adventure!

See the best of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford on a whirlwind tour that reveals the most unusual and amusing details in six centuries’ worth of great paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts. After the recent renovations, there has never been a better time to visit and be dazzled.

Along the way, you might uncover…

  • A chaotic nudist camp
  • Trojan horseplay
  • A lion whisperer
  • An infamous piece of painted propaganda
  • Colonial calamities
  • A pistol-packin’ gallery
  • Inaccurate acupuncture
  • A portrait that a Founding Father dismissed as simply shin-ful

The Murder Mystery Mayhem Scavenger Hunt

Beware: there’s a killer in your midst

Someone playing this game with you is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. His or her good side knows nothing about the evil side—and the evil side has challenged you to prevent your own murder. Everyone in your group has been poisoned, and the clock is ticking down on your time left to live. To reveal the killer’s identity, you’ll have to complete a series of photo challenges, solve interlocking puzzles, decipher coded text messages, and more. If you succeed, you get the antidote. If you fail…well, you know.

If you love escape-room games, you’ll love this murder mystery scavenger hunt. But even better, you won’t be locked in a room for an hour: this game can be played almost anywhere.
