The Secrets of Ybor City Scavenger Hunt

Explore Tampa Bay’s lively Latin Quarter

Visit Cuba without leaving the U.S. on this scavenger hunt in Tampa Bay’s historic Latin Quarter. Once known as the Cigar Capital of the World, Ybor City is rich in colorful sights, sounds, and flavors. On this game, you’ll tackle a variety of challenges, combining the best of sightseeing with team-building fun. Among your challenges: take creative Team Photos, find and create unusual items, seek out staffers for a surprise challenge, and decipher quirky clues to answer fun and amusing questions about interesting locations.

Along the way, you might…

  • See a “ghost firehouse”
  • Stroll the street where Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders once galloped
  • Stand on the very spot where Cuban revolutionary José Martí gave his famous “Cuba Libre!” speech
  • Watch as authentic cigar rollers produce their famous “torpedoes”
  • Discover the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the state
  • Answer tricky questions such as, “Who leaves a brainy message outside of the Ritz Theater?” and “What kind of fool shadows a bunch of smokin’ celebs?”

No knowledge of the area is necessary to play or to win. You just need to keep your eyes peeled for details and work well with your group. A pair of comfy shoes and a sense of adventure will also come in handy.

It’s a great activity for corporate outings, social-group gatherings, birthday parties—you name it. Find out why more than a million people around the country have played and raved about our scavenger hunts since 1999.

Great work!” –Melissa Merk, National Retail Marketing Director, First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation

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 scavenger hunt. But even better, you won’t be locked in a room for an hour: this game can be played almost anywhere. 

An in-person murder mystery for any location!

We have a variety of versions, depending on where you want to play. Such as…

  • A city, town, or neighborhood
  • A science or history museum
  • A zoo or aquarium
  • An office building
  • A school or campus
