    I was planning a corporate team building day for my team and scheduling is always a nightmare for large groups. Secret City worked with us as we rescheduled the event. They were patient and understanding. Great to work with. Day of the event was perfect. The tour guide was on time and instructions for meeting him were clear. My team had a great time exploring the museum and became closer because of it. Highly recommend for any groups!

    My company did the NYC Museum of Natural History scavenger hunt as our annual employee outing and it was so much fun! I highly recommend it as a group activity for curious people.

    Fun experience. Great option to announce birthdays or special events. My friend was completely surprised and loved her bday announcement. Fairly inexpensive especially when going in with others.

    We did the Greenwich village quest. It brought us to obscure places that I would have never seen if I hadn’t taken on the quest. Also it gave me a big workout and lasted over two hours. Next time we go to NYC I would like to try out a different quest to learn more about interesting places in New York City!

    I had my expectations set low. Even if I had them a little bigger, this place did not disappoint. There's not much to say that hasn't been said by other reviews but I would agree strongly that the price for adults should be lower. It is centered around the kids so the cost is reasonable for them. For me to pay $28 each for my wife and I was a little odd since we didn't have the same experience as our kids. The kids, by the way, absolutely loved this. Definitely worth the hour and a half it takes to get through the whole thing.

    This hunt was pretty awesome. Me and my friends went as a team and we did the hunt against others. We went to some really great historical bars. It was a lot of fun drinking and looking for clues. In one bar, we got some random folks to help us find the answer to the clue. A unique experience I would highly recommend.

    I cancelled my service in May 2020 but their customer service opted me back into monthly subscription without my consent. A year of $29.99 later I realized and they refused to refund me despite documentation of my explicit cancellation. Buyer beware!

    Visited recently and love the idea of a treasure hunt. However the clues were not common sense and were silly. So it made the game more of a riddle rather than a treasure hunt.
