of scramblers crawl all over
Seattle Center's 74-acre campus
like it was one big ant hill. You are surrounded with
easily recognizable landmarks like the Space Needle,
Pacific Science Center, Key Arena and MoPop. However, you will find yourself
chasing around places where you didn't know there were
places such as the Olympic Iliad, the
Guardian Lions and Bloody Erich.
Your team, the Clue Busters, huddles
to establish a winning game plan. Everyone is on high
alert - "be resourceful and scramble as a team." Some
of your teammates are sent dashing off to solve
mysteries lurking about. Others are frantically trying
to find certain items. You are dispatched with your
team's remaining players scheming ways to crack a
challenging puzzle. Periodically your team regroups to
exchange roles. By the end of the Hunt you have done
so much careening about Seattle Center that you feel
you have played the role of the ball in a pinball
machine! 90 minutes of friendly but frenzied fun!
Whew! But wait - for bonus points we have the Seattle
Crosswords puzzle to solve. Best of all we will cap

are fun events of competition and teamwork geared for
kids from middle school/junior high through high
school ages. And they are a very fun way to
"tour" Seattle Center's most interesting places.
Designed and emceed by the ClueMaster, these events
may be held most any day year-round during daylight
hours. The exception would be popular event
Festival days as the campus would be too crowded.
For safety, these contests are
held entirely on Seattle Center's 74-acre campus
with no vehicle traffic to worry about.
Adult chaperones (one or two) are required
for every team for middle
school/junior high age kids during the entire event
(but not high school age kids).
They are responsible for the whereabouts and safety of
the kids on their team. However, they are not to be
helpful in getting points for their team.
What gear do we need?
All kids and chaperones should come to this event with a pencil
or pen. During this event kids are not permitted to use mobile phones,
tables or other electronics to help them with the
Scramble. Everyone should wear comfortable walking/running
shoes. Oh yes, and bring a winning attitude!!

rather than the number of people in the group normally
