Got Questions about The Great Chase Scavenger Hunt Adventure? No problem, we've got your answers covered. Check this list of the questions we hear most often and if you're still scratching your head just drop us a line.
What can I expect from A Great Chase?
Fun! Seriously though, after your team checks-in and hears all the rules you'll receive your ﬁrst challenge. All teams look at the ﬁrst challenge at the same time so no one has an advantage. Then off you go! You'll receive challenge cards that you have to decipher to ﬁnd your next location. Once you solve the riddle, ﬁnd an answer, or snap a picture you'll check-in with the a Great Chase staffer to get the next challenge on your Chase. A Great Chase is designed for people of all ages, so we give you two options per clue so that everyone has fun and follows along. If you get stuck, we're here to help. You can simply call one of our staffers to get a nudge in the right direction. When all the teams have ﬁnished the Chase we'll celebrate and announce the winner of the Chase as well as award other certiﬁcates for notable achievements.
What are the Chase prizes?
Every 1st place team wins an entry into the $10,000* Annual Great Chase Championship. They also receive a trophy which is more awesome than the $10,000* entry. Other prizes and awards may be distributed to Chasers based on group size.
Who can participate in The Great Chase?
Anyone over 18 can participate in The Great Chase. People under 18 can participate as long as their other team member is over 18 with proper ID. Las Vegas teams must have at least one member over 21 years of age.
How many people on a Great Chase team?
Teams have two participants.
When does the Great Chase Scavenger Hunt Adventure start?
The Chase starts promptly at 1pm and check in begins at 12 noon. Don't be late!
Do I need to be in shape?
Being in shape is good for life and not just The Great Chase. But being a fitness guru is not required. Public transportation and taxis are allowed in the Great Chase but at your own expense. If you want to use your own two feet as transportation the entire event you definitely can (most winning teams did!).
Will any money be required?
Other than your entry fee no additional money is required. Some Great Chase challenges will have a “free option” as well as a “pay option.” So depending on your challenge selection nominal fees may be incurred. However, you can complete the entire Chase without spending any additional money. Additionally, if you do decide to complete challenges that have fees then a team would spend no more than $30 throughout the entire event.
Each team will receive bottled water, clue cards, coupons and discounts to participating sponsors, and a chance at immortal and everlasting Glory as a Great Chase winner!!!!!
How do I win the $10,000*?
$10,000* is awarded to the team that wins the National Great Chase Championship. Championship participants can qualify through a local city Great Chase or purchase a ticket into the Championship Event. A minimum of 50 teams must register for the National Championships to take place.
Can I enter the Great Chase more than once?
You can register to participate as many times as you like but the challenges will be different each time so you won’t have any competitive advantage over other teams.
What Should I Wear?
We think you should wear a creative costume but if you are not the creative type dress comfortably and wear clothing appropriate for the forecasted weather. The Chase is like the post ofﬁce....we run in rain, sleet or snow.....hopefully no sleet or snow though!
What does my team need to bring on the Great Chase
You will need a camera (or camera phone) and a phone (smart phones will be of great help to you). You will need an ID matching your registration to enter the race. If you registered using a social discount site like Groupon bring proof of purchase (A registration conﬁrmation is not proof of purchase). Bring a little bit of cash if you plan on completing challenges that cost money or using public transportation and taxis.
Are refunds available?
All sales are final. However, if you need to reschedule we will be happy to accommodate your request based on availability.
Can I change out my deadbeat teammate?
Of course. Just let us know and we’ll handle it. You will have to make arrangements with your teammate on the money owed them.
