Leave the city behind

…and embark on a unique scavenger hunt adventure on Governors Island. You and your team will follow a trail of tricky clues and answer humorous questions as you search for old munitions dumped beneath a Revolutionary fort, explore the cells of a Civil War Prison, visit an eerily abandoned movie theater, and explore the landmarked buildings of Colonels Row. Add the beautiful landscapes, modern art and spectacular views of the city, this hunt is a treasure.

Why not make a day of it? The Secrets of Governors Island Scavenger Hunt is the perfect reason to visit, and then once you’re here you can grab lunch, rent a bike, enjoy a picnic, and further explore the island on your own.

Hunts are played on teams of two to six people and participants use their own smartphone cameras to tackle our unusual Team Photo Challenges. Total running time is approximately 2 hours.
