Thing to do in Reno, Nevada
The Hunt is a twisted, riddle-solving race in the most authentic living ghost town in the world. On October 14th, the eerie landscape of Virginia City will transform into a vast apocalyptic breakout room crawling with the flesh-starved dead. You will compete against your fellow survivors. You will explore the depths of the paranormal. You will be timed. Your team will be tested. Find the clues. Keep an eye on the clock. Just remember to watch out for the living dead.
There is no set course. This is not a 5K or a 10K. This is a fast-paced test of your wits. This is an experiment to reveal your team’s strength and unity. To solve the riddles, find the clues, and crack the code you will delve into haunted century-old buildings, famous landmarks, and the history of Virginia City. And you’ll do it all while hunting for the living dead. The landscape will be a challenge both mentally and physically. You will have to do it all on foot. And to win, you’ll have to do it as fast as you can. This is not just a scavenger hunt. This is a whole new game of survival. Be ready. Not everyone can emerge victorious. But in the dead of Virginia City, everyone wants to hear you scream.
Participants can register as a team or as a zombie. There are two team levels: Rebel Squad with two to three members and Mob Squad with four to six members. Each team will receive one set of flags they must protect from zombies. One teammate will be responsible for keeping the flags safe while the others keep the flag holder safe. Time penalties will occur for each flag lost. The full role of the zombies is being kept under wraps for now. It will be revealed in a private message to registered zombies before The Hunt and will be unknown to the teams competing.
CELEBRATION OF SURVIVORS PARTY
The Celebration of Survivors is more than just a ceremony honoring survival and teamwork: the after-party is a zombie apocalypse experience and will be the center of The Hunt. The atmosphere will make you feel like you really are celebrating inside a post-Armageddon stronghold. The party will be packed with hunters and zombies from all over the country. There will be music, food, a Coors Light beer tent, and much, much more. The outdoor arena will be adorned with posted team times as well as banners for the victors. The Game Warden will present those banners as well as prizes to the winners in a special awards ceremony. He will also rule over several contests, and he will have more games for you to play. You didn’t think he would be done with you so easily, did you?
REDRUN SALOON CRAWL
This crawl is extraordinary. Many try to duplicate, but no one can match the authenticity of the historic saloons of Virginia City. Some of them are over 100-years-old. All of them are within walking distance of one another. Your saloon crawl cup gets you your first beer free at the main event bar and a map to exclusively sample a wide range of Redrun-themed drinks and one-of-a-kind Virginia City specialty drinks. The samples may prove to be enough, but if you need more, your cup will get you special pricing on all drinks.
Many of the landmarks in the Hunt are on the Redrun Saloon Crawl. You can do both! Don’t worry about it effecting your time. In VC, you can take your drink with you!
