Yes! You will be riding around Prescott or Scottsdale in one of our EZGO S6 golf carts. You will visit up to five locations searching for clues to solve your puzzle! Our carts are equipped with seat belts, and are allowed on roads that go under 35mph. We are a licensed livery vehicle in the State of Arizona, and your Puzzle Master Driver has completed a full background check. Puzzle Masters are experienced golf cart drivers, who will not only transport you throughout the game, but assist you during the game. Prior to game play, your driver will explain all safety rules and emergency procedures to ensure a safe and fun time by all.
Arrive at our meeting spot ready to play. Wear comfortable clothing, use the restroom prior to your arrival and have your thinking caps on! Your Puzzle Master Driver will go over safety rules and expectations. Every rider should bring their signed liability waiver form; if they forget, they will be asked to sign one then. PLEASE NOTE: no purses, bags, food or drinks are allowed on the ride. There is NO safe storage places on the ride, and your hands will be full of puzzle pieces! The only exception is one small water bottle that can fit in the cup holder. The timer will start at your appointed time, so don't be late! Phones are allowed if they can safely be stowed during ride times.
All of our rides are family friendly and contain no inappropriate material or situations. Puzzle Rides is great for families and birthdays! We'd love to have your kids along, but they must be at least 5 years old. Have several little ones? We can accommodate families of six if one parent and two kids can fit safely on our middle row (which is pretty common if both kids are under the age of 10!) Please contact us before booking to confirm; text or call (602)601-2261 or use our contact form.
On all rides, children under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by a paid participating parent or guardian. Due to car seat requirements in the state of Arizona, no children age 4 or under may ride on Puzzle Rides at any time.
Our golf carts hold up to 5 adult passengers plus the driver, and all participants must wear a seat belt. With this in mind, please note that our carts are very small spaces, and larger guests may be uncomfortable. You can book parties of up to 14 online; please note groups of 6 or more are split up between multiple carts.
...6 to 10 people?
Your group will be split up over two carts; 3 in each, 4 in each or 4 in one and 5 in the other. Our second cart is driven by Joe, who is always accompanied by his dog, CharLee, riding shotgun.
Due to Covid-19 precautions, all experiences are private. However, do know it is very difficult to solve our puzzles with just 2-3 people. We recommend 4-5 people for the best chance of solving our puzzles!
Service dogs are welcome to tag along, but must sit comfortably on your lap or on the floor. There is no charge to bring the service animal, but we must limit your party size to 4 if the animal cannot sit on your lap in order to accommodate everyone. There is very limited space, and we want you and your companions to be safe! Please be aware that we are not responsible for any actions your animal takes while on a ride. Due to the limited space, all other animals (pets or support animals) are not allowed on Puzzle Rides.
*please note that in groups of 6 or more in Prescott, our second cart is driven by Joe, with his dog CharLee riding shotgun.
We do our best to accommodate everyone! Participants will need to be able to safely transfer into our cart, but we do not have room to accommodate bringing a wheelchair along. If a wheelchair bound participant can safely transfer, they are welcome to ride along and solve clues as they can from the cart.
The timer is set at 75 minutes for all puzzle rides. Plan to arrive at the meeting location at the time of your Puzzle Ride, and to take 15 minutes to return to that location when your Ride is finished (as they all end away from where they start!) We will take photos throughout and at the end of the Ride, and send them to you via text or email to commemorate your escape room/scavenger hunt on wheels!
Our rides are booked on a very tight time frame throughout the day. It is important that all participants arrive on-time so that we can maintain this schedule for all customers. If you have a private experience, we will allow for you to arrive up to 10 minutes late, with a call/text to your Puzzle Master. However, we may have to cut your puzzling time down to accommodate the rides behind you.
Cancellations for refund must be made no later than 48 hours in advance of your experience. Cancellations of less than 48 hours may be rescheduled, but not refunded. Experiences rescheduled less than 24 hours before their booking time WILL be subject to a $50.00 rescheduling fee, which is due before your experience can be rescheduled. If you no-show to your experience, all monies are forfeited. We understand that emergencies can happen. However, we plan and staff our facility so our customers have an amazing experience. For this reason, we are NOT able to waive this fee within 48 hours of your scheduled experience for any reason. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding of this policy.
If it is raining at the time your ride starts, we will reschedule your ride. If it begins to rain during your ride, we will stop the clock and seek safety in the local parking garage. Most summer storms are short, and we will restart the game when it stops!
