Hidden between Garden of the Gods and America’s most famous mountain, Pikes Peak, lies the magical town of Manitou Springs. “Manitou”, a Native American word for “spirit”, describes this beautiful mountain community. Eleven naturally carbonated mineral spring fountains, located throughout this Historic town, run free for all who wish to enjoy the healing benefits. Manitou Springs is a vibrant artisan community, home to world class art, music, theater and sidewalk sculpture displays. The downtown Historic District is the perfect venue for the Amazing Adventure Race Scavenger Challenge.
Your Team Mission?
For teams that want to step up the intensity and pace of the Mission Impossible Team Challenge, try the Amazing Adventure Race! This furiously fast race pits teams against each other with a series of twisty and collaborative team challenges while racing to uncover as many locations as possible. Stealth maneuvering is required for teams to outwit and outperform the competition.
Sounds easy enough. Here’s the catch – There are too many Race Locations to get to within the designated race time. This is intentional! It’s not the fastest team that wins; it’s the smartest team!
Throw out the technology. Instead of your team following a device telling you where to go and what to do, it is up to your team to collaborate and navigate a unique course of travel – the decisions are up to your team. Crack a series of complex secret codes and then it’s off to complete the challenges. It is up to your team to determine the most efficient use of resources and to plot a route that maximizes the number of missions completed successfully. Teams document success with photos and videos ultimately delivered to the team as a high-energy slideshow capturing the spirit of the day.
