Amazing Los Angeles Race

The Emmy Award-winning CBS television show known as the "Amazing Race" was the model for this sightseeing excursion that is part scavenger hunt and part Los Angeles tour. Participants can be individuals or groups of up to 40 or more, and costs range from $35 to $69 per person.

Just like in the TV show, the location of the starting line remains secret until just before the race begins. Teams of 2~8 players are given clues to follow, which lead them around the city as they complete various tasks, such as puzzles or skill challenges. The organizers say that it more like taking pat in a movie like "The Da Vinci Code" or "National Treasure" than a typical clue hike. Prizes are awarded to the top three finishers, and refreshments are provided to all who cross the finish line.

The races start on Saturdays and Sundays at 11am. Those who have been through the course say it can easily take up to four hours to complete. It is recommended that participants bring along sunscreen, water, and comfortable shoes. The address of the Amazing Los Angeles Race is 1171 South Robertson Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90035. Anyone who gets lost along the way can get assistance by calling a special number for "mission control."
