What Is A Mission:?
A Mission: is an Assignment you'll take with Team Members to accomplish a prearranged Goal. The Mission is interactive, with an APP that provides Maps, Mission Targets, Equipment Interface, as well as a Communications Device including Fun Fact Challenges present throughout. You'll be navigating through the site, taking Facebook/Instagram-worthy Pictures, completing Tasks based on what you'll find at certain Locations, and learning new things along the way!

What Time Should I Start A Mission:?
You may start at any time; however, we generally recommend that you plan to complete the Mission before Sunset, as some Locations may be harder to find in the Dark. Some Missions only start after Dark, and have recommended hours so that you have the option to explore other free/paid attractions -- these are typically listed in the Facility Description (check the Website).

How Fit Do I Have To Be To Go On A Mission:?
In most cases, Mission's require you to Walk a distance of 3 miles or less, but sometimes more. You can take as much time as you need!
