“Great way to see a city!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This review is for the Los Angeles race 1:
I grew up in Los Angeles and have taken visitors to all the tourist attractions in town so I thought that this race was going to be a bit boring for someone like me. Fortunately, it was super fun AND showed me the city in a different light! It was the first time I took the metro in LA and my first time visiting a good portion of the attractions. Even the places I had previously been to became very different as the clues pushed us to pay attention to the smallest details!
It was fast-paced, challenging, and incredibly fun. I can't wait to check out all the other races that this company hosts!

“Totally Awesome”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We did the LA 1 race this weekend and we had so much fun, it was a great day with friends. It was a great way to see LA as well, places I've heard about but never actually gotten there. Everyone working on the race were great. Thank You Fantastic Race for a great day full of memories. We will for sure be going back and try the Santa Monica race!!!!

“So Much Fun”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We did LA 1. We were one of four groups. Our group consisted of myself, my husband and our sons ages 11 and 13. We wore our matching t-shirts and showed up in our minivan and were off to race.

We interesting sites and did some interesting things some of which were local things and not touristy. That was cool in that I always like to know what someone else's normal is like and touristy stuff is not a local's normal.

The downside is that as you are racing through this stuff, you really don't learn much about what you are seeing. So if you want to learn about LA and its features try a bus tour. This amazing race will get you in and about the city and give you a feel for LA and you will have a blast.

The kids loved it and were able to help out with many of the puzzles. They were challenging but straight forward.

Our director of the race was fantastic! I believe his name was Mitch. He or another director will see you at the beginning and end of the race. At the end of this particular race we were offered some food and drink including domestics free of charge.

Be sure to search their website for the discount puzzle! It will save a lot of money. If I ever get back to the west coast I will definitely be doing another race with this company!

“re: Best of Downtown”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

What an AWESOME race!! We were in a group of 30 people and did the Downtown LA race.. It was such a perfect way to experience downtown!! There was so much architecture to enjoy as we were running about... Even though I live in Los Angeles, I would recommend this race to everyone as one of my favorite ways to experience Downtown.... Do it!!!!
