As long as you have a sense of fun and an adventurous spirit you will have a great time solving the mystery of Lincolns lost treasure. Our group consisted of 6 adults and two children.
They have plenty of opportunity for the treasure hunters to volunteer to participate. Each person could be assigned a task and if you choose not to take on a task that is completely ok. Hence, why I said the adventure is based on what you decide to partake in.

Also, if you have a sense of humor you will also have an enjoyable experience. So, fully embrace the adventure and your sense of humor and you will have a great fun experience just as our group did.

We all chose a task and decided to take on the task with a humorous spirit all while walking around the city and sharing stories. We enjoyed getting to know the other four people in our group. Our group consisted of my husband and I and my best friend from Kindergarten and her husband we are from Pennsylvania and a group of four who came all the way from Ohio.

The ending was clearly everyone's favorite and in the end we all were completely participating, laughing, going along with our assignment and diligently working to solve the mystery until the surprise ending.

A good time was had by all eight of us.

We would do the adventure again next year, looking forward to it.

We recently visited Gettysburg and finally were able to take part in Lincoln's Lost Treasure after 2 and 1/2 years of trying. Doug (one of the creators) worked with us to make it happen after unpreventable circumstance; to which we are very grateful. It was well planned and so much fun. The actors were fantastic. We were also fortunate to have a fabulous and very dramatically talented group; therefore, it just added to the fun. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys mystery, drama, and fun group participation.

This was a fun thing to do, it was like a Scavenger throughout the town. We have been to Gettysburg several times. Doing Lincoln's lost treasure had us see areas we hadn't been to before. We would do it again. I have told my friends and co-worker, that this is something to do with their friends & family. This was truly a fun thing to do!

We had the best time, your actors were on top of things the whole time. They didn't miss a cue. Very good snack and smart story lines. I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to do something different , museums are nice but this was a chance to be apart of the town. Loved it. Keep up the good work.

We took our 8 yr old grandson to Gettysburg and this is the adventure he picked. Met a nice family and the boys had fun on their adventure. It was nice walking thru the area - no hurry and a great way to spend the day
