Welcome, Comedy Arena Visitors!

The ArenaZing Race is a Team Building Scavenger hunt event in which teams race around the city blocks in competition with other teams. The “Race” involves teams in traveling by foot and completing tasks at each stop along the way and interacting with the locals in order to become more familiar with aspects of McKinney's culture, history, and economy.

How The Winner Is Determined

For each clue that a Team solves correctly, a certain amount of points will be awarded. Points are awarded based on the difficulty of the challenge. The harder the challenge, the more points it’s worth. Points can also be awarded if players/teams make any purchases while competing. For every $1 spent, that’s 1 more point to add to their total. Could you buy yourself into the winning position? Sure, it’s possible. However, Teams in full must return to The Comedy Arena before the Scavenger Hunt Race is over in order for all of their points to count and for them to win.

Time Frame for the Challenge

Teams should return to The Comedy Arena by 10:30 a.m.
