About the AppVenture Race Urban Explorer

The AppVenture Race Urban Explorer is a popular outdoor, scavenger hunt style team challenge event around your local city. Take your team on an epic head-to-head adventure around the streets, sights and iconic locations of your chosen area with our new app-based exploration activity! 

Using your smartphone, players will visit different locations to unlock
GPS hotspots containing a series of exciting team tasks and challenges.

Tasks will require creative and strategic thinking whilst encouraging players to explore and discover the surrounding area. See what other teams are up to as you go – photos taken during the activity will be shared live to the ‘photo wall’ within our app, allowing teams to inspire and entertain the rest of the group as they go! 

Completion of individual hotspots will unlock virtual ‘scavenger hunt’ items which can be used to answer a bonus question at the end of the activity. The team with the most points at the end of the activity will be crowned the winners!
