CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building returned to the great city of the north, Minneapolis and boy they had a better time than eating a hot dish in February! It also happened to be Pride weekend in Minneapolis and the most beautiful day in recent memory of CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building.

CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building could not have pulled off this event without the wonderful staff and volunteers from One2One. One2One is a mentorship program that helps youth who are struggling in their school environment. One2One mentors spend a minimum of one hour each week with their mentee for the entire school year. One2One really makes an impact, but it needs your help.

Once all the Minneapolis Amazing Race enthusiasts solved the first clue and picked up their packets for the day that’s when everything got interesting. Teams had to navigate downtown and uptown via bus! A good handful of Minneapolis scavenger hunt lovers had never set foot on public the bus, so CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building was an education in getting around town via government subsides.

Most of the action took place in the Uptown section of Minneapolis. One of the favorite activities was making balloon animals at Tintos! What more can CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building say! F-U-N…fun, fun, fun!

From Mexican then onto the froyo fabulousness of Yogurt Lab of Uptown (they have the coolest topping bar set up) where teams were rewarded by playing a Minute to Win It game where these Minneapolis scavenger hunt sleuths had to pass M&Ms via straws sans hands. The fun continues!

CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building’s good friend at the Phoenix Theater had a classic improv game where Minneapolis Amazing Race fiends really had to use their brain at this checkpoint. This was the most fun spelling activity anyone could do sober!

Magers and Quinn Book Sellers had the ultimate in-store scavenger hunt! CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building delivered the five hints in their classic pop-culture style. Where else but a CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building activity would you find Aziz Ansari’s latest, one of the Harry Potters, Chronicles of Narnia (the shebang), the classic David Copperfield, and True Grit!

We will be back in next June, so grab your friends, your killer costume and prepare for an even greater adventure!
