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.

Highly collaborative, fast-paced, intensely strategic and competitive, teams race to as many Amazing Adventure Race Scavenger Challenge locations as possible. We have intentionally provided too many to get to in the official race period. Teams must choose wisely. It is not the fastest teams that earn the most points; it’s the smartest teams!

Amazing Race locations are spread out across the field of play area. First, teams must decipher the code that reveals the clue that will identify the race location. Once teams arrive to a Race Challenge location, they engage in a series of 5-10 active challenges that require team collaboration, innovation, and effective execution.

Amazing Race Challenges can be completed in any order. It is up to your team to determine the most efficient use of resources and to plot a course that will maximize the number of Amazing Race Challenges completed successfully. The Amazing Adventure Race requires teams to think strategically before jumping into action! Teams that balance strategy and action while adapting to unexpected changes are the teams that excel as they race to the finish!
