What is Rocket Race?

Our annual flagship event, Rocket Race is a day adventure for teams of two to four around the city, using their skills of puzzle solving, navigation, and science fiction trivia. Traveling on foot and in cars, teams use any resources at their disposal to solve the clue that will lead them to the next checkpoint, where they will receive another clue.

Our other public events involve similar challenges: solving clues and finding a location that fits the answer. Photo hunts have a different format - teams get all their clues at the beginning, and must photograph themselves at the locations they think are the correct solutions to the clues. Race formats can vary to include being on foot only, or allowing transit, or driving around the area in private cars.
