Looking for a way to turn downtown Boise into a giant board game? Urban Adventure Quest have created an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the amazing race with a three-hour sightseeing tour of Boise. Be guided through any smart phone.

Stop for a bite at one of the many restaurants, or have a Sangria in the Basque Block. Offered at a fixed price for a group versus per person pricing, this city tour and game offers great value to those on a budget.

What people are saying about Boise, Idaho

This was a good alternate to the typical outing of dinner and a movie. For reference, there were 18 puzzles/riddles to solve and we logged nearly 7,000 steps walking so be prepared for the energy needed to complete this. I would recommend bringing water to drink along the way or stop in at JUMP to use their water fountain (it is about halfway through the experience). Having said that, it took us just under 2 hours to finish everything and we weren’t rushing through any of it.

It was a blast. I learned a bunch of stuff I never knew before.
