Love to tour New York but can’t get out to see all the sights? Sit down in front of a computer and strap in for an online game that shows you the best of the city from the comfort of your home. On teams, you’ll gather with our Host on Zoom (or a similar platform) and use our browser-based app to answer unusual trivia questions that lead you to discover great websites of landmarks and museums and answer tricky questions about what you discover. You’ll see quirky art, find surprising objects, peer inside majestic rooms, and virtually wander through sites that reveal New York’s many treasures.

Stops on the journey include…

  • Greenwich Village
  • Central Park
  • Grand Central Terminal
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art

…plus an array of lesser-known but amazing places. All you need to win is good teamwork and a sense of humor.

This virtual NYC tour is a great team-building activity for groups of all sizes. You can use the game to introduce newcomers to the wonders of the city, or remind longtime New Yorkers of how great the city is and how much of it remains to be discovered.
