PRACTICAL DETAILS and FAQs

Hunts take two hours, with some additional time beforehand for waiver-signing and instructions and afterwards for tallying the scores, for a total of 2 1/2 hours. Bonus points are given for most creative and clever team name, so start thinking!

This hunt takes place entirely outdoors, rain or shine. Please come prepared with a water bottle and comfortable shoes. You’ll be covering a lot of territory.

Our hunts are designed for adults. Some of the clues and references will be over kids’ heads and they can get frustrated. Participants as young as 11 have taken part with their parents and had a great time so at the end of the day, it is up to the parent / grandparent / guardian / cool aunt or uncle.
If you would like to get in touch, please send an email to info@urbancapers.com, or call 647 852 6444.
No, there will be a sign-in sheet for those registered. If you are transferring your ticket to another person, they must bring your ticket.
Once you have purchased a ticket for an event, our people go into action, printing off materials, lining up staff for the event day and purchasing admission tickets if a museum or other institution is involved. Because of this, we do not offer refunds. However, your ticket is transferrable. So if you can’t make it, you can give your ticket to someone else to bring to the event.
It’s not a bad idea. You will pass some amazing food stops, and we will suggest our favourites, so bring some cash for a coffee and a little snack. Or a large poutine, whatever you’re in the mood for!
Oui et non. Currently our hunt is offered in French and English on separate occasions, meaning that if you book an English date, the intro, materials, etc will all be in English, and vice versa for our French events.

We hope to combine the materials to a single bilingual offering in the near future.
