FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. How long does it take to complete the Scavenger Hunt? Family Edition: It's easy and fast to walk to all four corners of Curtis Hixon Park in under 1hr. There is no prize for the fastest finisher. Take your time. Have fun. Do return your entry form before 3pm to our registration tent to receive your raffle ticket. Adult Edition: If you’re fast on your feet and don’t stop too long for drinks or food you should be able to solve all 15 riddles in 2-3hrs. But speed is not the essence here. Have fun, take your time and visit a few venues. You do not need to visit every bar or solve every puzzle.
2. How much walking is there (Adult 21+ Edition)? You will be exploring Downtown Tampa and Ybor City as you visit the bars and find the clues, so wear comfortable shoes like you would to a standard city sightseeing tour. To get to/from Ybor, take advantage of the free Street Car service every Saturday.
3. Do I have to finish by 9pm (Adult 21+ Edition)? No. If you're having fun and want to stay at a bar, you can simply message/text us a photo of your riddle sheet and contact details and we will enter you into the raffle drawing.
