Watson Adventures

Watson Adventures offers a variety of scavenger hunts to choose from, all of which allow you to explore Kansas City. Their classic, flagship hunts reveal the secrets of specific locations, via entertaining questions that showcase the skills of everyone on the team.

On most of the hunts, you’re not hunting for objects, but rather for answers to tricky and humorous questions about the intriguing places and objects you discover.

The game typically lasts two hours with about half an hour more for set-up and post-hunt scoring. On private scavenger hunts the length can be customized to meet your needs.
