Amazing Race Yuma County

April 12 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$4 – $480

WHAT’S IT LIKE?
Imagine an Escape Room crossed with childhood games crossed with behind the scenes tours at local businesses and you’ll have an idea. Past challenges have included “cracking” a safe, using hospital equipment to play the Operation board game, carrying an egg on a spoon, delivering newspapers to play houses, and using professional screen printing equipment to print your own tote. What will the 2024 challenges be? They’re a secret, but we can share one thing – they’ll be challenging but fun!

HOW IT WORKS
The teams will be provided with an initial starting point and registration time. There will be staggered starting times at set intervals based on the number of teams entered. The team’s starting time will be noted as the winner will be based on actual time plus penalties from their start to finish rather than who finishes first.

At the starting location, the teams will be given their first challenge. When the first challenge begins, the team’s starting time will be recorded. Upon completion of the first challenge, the team will be given a checklist of the ten locations they must visit in order to complete the race. The team will then drive to the first location.

At each location, the team will need to complete that location’s challenge. Once that challenge is complete, the location representative will initial the team’s checklist and provide them with an envelope with puzzle pieces in it. Like the puzzle, most challenges require thought and teamwork rather than physical strength. Everyone 18 and over are welcome!

Once the team has successfully completed the challenges at all ten locations, the team will go to the finish line. Before a team can officially cross the finish line, the team will be provided a table on which they must complete a puzzle using all the puzzle pieces received throughout the race. Upon successful completion of the puzzle, the team’s completion time will be noted to calculate their total race time.

The winner will be the team that completes the race in the least amount of time. Cash prizes will be awarded!

All racers are invited to the post-race reception being held at Julieanna’s Steak & Seafood by Chef Eddie Guzman that evening.
