The Secrets of Union Station Scavenger Hunt

Next stop: surprises!

If you’ve been inside this famous building, you were probably rushing to catch a train—and you probably missed many of its interesting sights and quirky details. This scavenger hunt takes your team on a whirlwind tour of the highlights, from the dramatic main hall to the treat-packed lower-level dining concourse, and then to the upper level with its cool, overarching ceiling. And that’s just for starters.

Your team will be challenged to answer tricky questions about intriguing hidden history and quirky details, while also taking creative Team Photos. Along the way, you’ll track down the Hunt Host for a bonus challenge.

Highlights include…

  • A puzzling confrontation between two travelers and multiple clocks
  • A display about the station’s restoration, starring a “horrible toupee”
  • A centaur on the loose in the East Hall
  • A device for turning the Lincoln Memorial into the Washington Monument
  • An Amtrak diary and a cunning calculation involving a famous commuter

You don’t need any prior knowledge to play—or to win. You just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and great teamwork.

Murder Mystery Mayhem in Union Station Scavenger Hunt

Is there an evil genius in your midst?

Yes, there is. And he or she has poisoned you. You can get the antidote only by solving the devilishly clever puzzles in the scavenger hunt that this villain has created for your group. Are you up for the challenge before time runs out?

If you want to survive, you’ll have to use your creativity to keep your would-be killer amused, even as you use your smarts to figure out who it is. You’ll take Team Photos in imaginative ways that have you sneaking through Union Station, stealing candy from a baby, hiding from the authorities, staging your own murder scenes, and more. You’ll also be challenged to find or make a series of objects, from a killer coin to a dead president’s face.

As you play, you’ll uncover secrets hidden within your hunt materials, obtain the clues to complete a gruesome puzzle with a surprising twist, and meet the Hunt Host for a cryptic bonus challenge.
