    Arrow Ideas for Puzzles to be solve at Disneyland

    I'm looking for great ideas - I will be travelling to the park with a group of 12 teenagers and am trying to make a teambuilding activity for them. I imagine this to be a sort of race contest (2 to 3 hours) where they try to solve as many puzzles or achive as many stunts/trivia answers as they can. The group will be divided into 3's for this competition.

    Perhaps sort of like the Mouse Adventure described at Mouse Planet, but I've not seen that so I'm not exactly sure what that is. Disneyland itself used to offer a tour called "Quest" that was some sort of treasure hunt type thing. Again, I've not done that so I don't really know.

    DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY GREAT IDEAS FOR PUZZLES TO SOLVE, FUNNY WAYS THEY COULD TAKE THEIR PICTURE, TRIVIA ABOUT SPECIFIC PARK ATTRACTIONS THEY COULD LOOK FOR, or anything that could be added to make this idea a great contest?

    Photo scavenger hunts are always the best. I used to do these every year with my church choir.
    Break up into teams and give everyone a disposable camera.
    Have them need to get pictures of certain things like:
    -A picture of your group on the most exciting ride in the park
    -A picture of your group eating the best cuisine in the park
    -Find someone with the best hair in the park.
    -Best socks
    -Find someone from Indiana
    -Get a picture of your group acting like monkeys with other tourists
    -Get a picture of your group with another random family
    -Get a picture of your group in the background of another group's photo

    And you'd judge the pictures later and select the winning one from each category based on creativity or how funny it is.
    Like the most exciting ride could be Dumbo or a trashcan.

    Let me know if you need more ideas, I can ask my old Choir Director and some of my friends.

    Also there was always a few bonus pages that had maybe 6 things around the park that you needed to find. Like a close-up picture of the hidden mickey in the Golden Horseshoe.

    Hope that helps

    Pictures...
    - At the Small World Clock Show
    - At Toontown "gags" such as the dumbbells or the fireworks factory
    - With characters; autographs for extra points!
    - Proofs of ridership: ask teams to take pictures in lines, at loading docks or on rides (NO FLASH!!!!!!)
    - Tiki Room Gods
    - The goat on Big Thunder...

    And the list goes on an on!
    Do do do do do do dodododododo!

    For hidden items and little known trivia/objects/illusions/etc....there was a Looooooong thread titled "little known Disney facts" I think. I don't know how to post links (embarassing), but if you do a search of the threads for those words, it should come up. Have your pen and paper ready - there's tons of stuff in there!

    I would try to make it a point system rather than a riddle based scavenger hunt. Like five points for every hidden mickey, or five points for pictures with characters. You can make harder to find stuff higher point values. If you have a pass try going a couple days before so you can plan it out. And if you can get a canoe just for your group that is always a fun team building activity. Sounds like a lot of fun.
