Experience the beauty of Central Park in Summer in a whole new way with our Central Park Scavenger Hunt! It is a fun way to meet new people or hang out with familiar friends in NYC’s Urban Oasis while keeping socially distanced and safe! If you don’t have a team we will set you up on one as you set out to find fun and historical things that are already part of the park. Following the hunt you can join members of the hunt for a bite to eat at an outdoor local pub or restaurant.
How it works:
- Come alone or with friends, we will set up the teams (teams of up to 5 only)
- Each team will have 2 hours to find as many clues at they can inside the park (clues will be in historical markers, wildlife, street performers, tourists, fountains, statues, bridges and hidden secrets)
- At the end of the 2 hours each team will end at a specific location to see which group has uncovered the most clues to win prizes!
- After the prizes are awarded you will have the option to go to a local pub for outdoor food and drink.
