WHAT TYPES OF PUZZLES ON A “CLASSIC PUZZLE PUB CRAWL?”

THINKING PUZZLES
Crosswords, Word Finds, Ciphers, “Do As You’re Told” Word Drops, Riddles and more….we typically do this at our first bar when your thinking is still clear!
VISUAL PUZZLES
“Charades” is what we call it, but everyone calls it fun! This is our most popular game in which you must identify what a picture is.
PHYSICAL PUZZLES
Wire linked puzzles, tangrams, ball mazes, jigsaw puzzles and more!We bring a mix of all three – and multiples! You can work on a puzzle as a team or as individuals; depending on your times we can sometimes do several!

PUB CRAWL FAQ’S

Riders will be visiting several different areas (districts) of Old Town Scottsdale or Historic Downtown Prescott. They will be presented with a different type of puzzle at each location. Locations are chosen in various ways – sometimes through a song choice or other times by driver curation (we avoid really crowded locations!) Once at the chosen bar, riders will be able to purchase a beverage of their choice to enjoy while solving their puzzle. The goal? To solve the puzzle and earn bragging rights for winning that puzzle round. At the end of 25- 30 minutes the next bar is revealed in a new district, and they are off again. Your final destination has been chosen to be within walking distance of your vehicle so sit back and enjoy your final destination long after your ride has ended! There are up to a half dozen bars in each district, and up to four districts to visit…so every ride will be unique!

If it is raining at the time your ride starts:
• In Prescott, we will give it 15 minutes to stop in the summer; if it doesn’t, we will reschedule your ride.
• In Scottsdale, we run rain or shine in the summer. Come prepared!
• In the Winter, we reschedule your ride in both locations. It’s miserable to be cold & wet!

If it begins to rain during your ride in the summer:
• In Prescott, 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!
• In Scottsdale, we break out the emergency ponchos! These are very thin but will keep the worst off if we have an unexpected shower.

SNOW: If there is snow on the ground, and roads are dry, we will proceed as normal.

If there is snow and wet roads, we will reschedule your ride.

HEAT: If it is over 110 degrees at the time of your ride, we reserve the right to postpone your ride.

Puzzle Rides does not offer direct refunds on any ride, but will issue a store credit good for one year should you have to cancel at any time or if weather causes us to postpone due to safety reasons. Pub Crawls canceled or rescheduled less than 7 days before their booking time will be subject to a $50 rescheduling fee. We plan and staff our rides so our customers have an amazing experience. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding of this policy. If you would like to purchase Enhanced Refund Protection for an additional cost at check out, please read all of our terms and conditions BEFORE purchasing HERE.

We do not provide you with alcohol.  All alcohol must be purchased and consumed at the bar where it was purchased.  Absolutely no alcohol allowed on the golf cart. 

Likewise, do not bring alcohol with you.  Many bars are cash-only, so make sure to have cash on had. We request that only one person use a card to pay for everyone’s purchases to save time.

Yourself, an ID (you must be 21 years old and bars do check ID’s!) and your party attire! We supply everything else. You are also welcome to bring decorations for the cart.

In Scottsdale, we pick you up at RACK Scottsdale. In Prescott, at the local parking garages. We leave you at your last location to enjoy it without a time limit; it’s always within a block’s walk from your vehicle. We encourage you to have a designated driver, or use a ride share service to get home safely!

A trained Puzzlemaster; music, silliness, fun and PUZZLES! We do thinking, visual and physical puzzles! Think of your puzzlemaster as your new favorite sober drinking buddy!

Price does not include drinks or driver gratuity. Our drivers work hard to make your experience one to remember and greatly appreciate tips. 10-20% is customary for private tours.

Of course! But our Puzzlemasters will also take photos of the groups during the tour and will airdrop them to everybody post-tour !
