One ticket per group is enough
, Mar 2022
Don’t buy more than one ticket for your group. This is very hands off. You will get a text of a pdf with places to go. You will be asked to send proof photos to a group of strangers. That’s it. Not worth the price for one person let alonemore than one. Not sure why they charge per person other than greed. They only send a couple texts to one person in the group.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
You would definitely need to participate in order to find out what the hunt is all about. You always have the choice of sending your photos to just your host. Our live interactive remote adventure coaches always introduce themselves and take great care of your group throughout the experience. I checked your communication thread and yours did. Unfortunately, your group didn’t participate beyond the beginning. You would need to complete the game in order to have the unique experience we offer. The vast majority of our guests have an excellent experience and we are so sorry you didn’t choose to join in on the merriment.
Great afternoon, super exciting experience

Family Fun??
, Jan 2022
This was too expensive for what you get. Good for adults, couples and 15yr old and up. Not good for younger kids, not a normal scavenger hunt where when you get to a location you find something you keep. My 8 year old grandson was bored and upset that there was not a treasure at each location. Example- at the first place you get a ring with a plastic charm representative of that location, then at each place you get another charm to add to your ring-like a plastic pug face from art for the people, a donut from Gourdough’s donuts, a feather charm from The feather clothing store, a bat charm from the Bat statue ….you get the idea. So at the end you have pictures of the group at each location and kids have a plastic key ring with a plastic charm from each place which will make it a fun adventure for them too. Plus with the cost being $22.00 for each person, it would only cost you the company penny’s to do for the kids in the family AND then it would be a happy and fun adventure for the whole family! Without raising the cost! Thank you 😊

We are sorry to hear your grandson did not enjoy the experience. The vast majority of kids on our hunts do. It sounds like you were all expecting treasures at every stop, which is not something we advertise or include at all. Nonetheless, we offered you a free future hunt and even a free pre-hunt consult to set you all up for success and we hope you’ll use it. While intrinsically rewarding, our hunts are great for all ages!

Great Activity for All People
, Sep 2021
We saw very interesting places during the scavenger hunt. It's a great way to get out and about if you're active and competitive. It also offers many nearby locations so people can go at their own pace.
Fun for the first 3 stops!
, Jul 2021
We were so excited to go on this scavenger hunt. The first three stops driving around Austin were fun and new. But the next few stops we’re all within 1/2 miles of a small area and kind of boring. I’d love to see these last few locations upgraded to be more prominent locations that are quality locations. We ended up bailing out as the fun of it all declined. But I will say the first 3 we’re great. The last 4 not so much.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
We are so sorry you didn’t get to experience the rest of our hunt! A hidden gem of a gallery with a great cause, a thought provoking new mural, a whimsical shop, an interactive art installation that many locals don’t even know exists, the great vibes of the SoCo neighborhood, and so much more awaited you. But one has to experience these hidden gems in order to appreciate them and in order to even know what we’ve curated for them! We welcome you to finish the game and update your review so that it will reflect a complete experience, rather than one that was barely begun. Email us to discuss a complementary gift from our company so that you won’t have missed out on an amazing adventure!
Fun times!
, Jul 2021
This is totally worth doing if there are areas of Austin you have always wanted to but never found the time. So fun!
Pure fun
, Jun 2021
Randomly finding the unicorn for the anywhere dare. All of the missions were super fun and funny once we saw them.
Great way to see Austin on your own with assistance from the pros.

The scavenger hunt was great! Make sure to let people know they need a car AND traffic maybe bad going around the circle at Zilker Park, stay to the left if possible, we sat for an hour trying to get around.

Leah and Kat are the bomb!! We loved it, and would do it again! The challenges were fun and creative, had to face some of my fears...but totally glad I did! Highly recommend!
Great for an afternoon activity!
, Jan 2021
My husband and I had a great time visiting Austin and this scavenger hunt was such a great way to see the city! We were taken to cool places we wouldn’t have known about otherwise! It was well-organized and provided us with lots of laughs along the way. I would recommend this highly!

The way to tour Austin
, Oct 2020
I am an Austinite and wanted to show someone who just moved here a good time and tour of the city in a fun way! Keep Austin Weird Scavenger Hunt did just that! We took the 2 hour tour and were able to complete most of the tasks in downtown and soco! The start of the hunt was picturesque. I did have a problem with booking, but Viator took care of it in the end.
Fun, Fun, Fun
, Feb 2020
We had so many laughs on this adventure! We saw lots of weird and crazy things that we normally would not have seen if we didn’t do the scavenger hunt!
