Lost with Laughter - When you can spend the day laughing and getting lost with your friends, this is a great challenge. We are from out of town so we’re not familiar with anything. We never got passed step 5 in the 3 hours but had a memorable blast. We plan to try it again with more friends to help.

Not what I expected. Very challenging and stressful. - This turned out to be more stressful than fun. If you are not a Lancaster local, a lot of the questions/trivia are very hard and almost impossible to figure out. We had to call the host for some answers after we spent almost an hour on one question. We also think some of the questions are outdated because a few of the items we were told to find were not there anymore. You have a 3 hour time limit which we felt like took the fun out of exploring the city because we were just focused on trying to finish all the tasks in time instead of noticing all the different places we were passing. I was under the impression from the description that we would be told where to go and then there would be a puzzle to solve at that location. However, the puzzle WAS figuring out where to go, which is why it was so hard. I'm assuming if you are a local it might be easier. Overall, there were some cool stops on the hunt and it did get us exploring. but we didn't really find ourselves enjoying our time until we stopped trying to solve the puzzles and just explored ourselves. If you are looking for a fun, stress free exploration of the city, this is not the activity for you. But if you are looking for a challenging way of exploring it, then this might be what you are looking for.

Too much to figure out with phones - We don’t realize that we were completely on our own except for the phones. Had to rely on phones completely and was hoping for a less electronic activity
