Welcome to the Danger Run. We understand that it is often challenging when you are first getting started. We find that the biggest hurdle is getting past the first page of clues. Once guests make it to page 2, things start to get easier. We also find the 75% of people that think they are lost are actually on the right track. This page is designed to help you get past these hurdles.
**SPOILERS BELOW FOR PAGE 1**
BYPASSING INSTRUCTIONAL PAGES
Don't make the mistake of bypassing the instructional pages prior to Page 1 of the clues. Look over these carefully before getting started. Nearly everything you need to know is on these pages.
SKIMMING THE CLUES
One of the more common challenges we see is clue skimming. To solve the clue, you must read and think about what the clue says. It isn't designed for casual reading and loose interpretation. If you skim or make assumptions because you think you know where a landmark is, that is the fastest way to get lost. Read and interpret it just as it is written.
NOT WATCHING SURROUNDINGS
Danger Run is a game of observation. Watch your surroundings, including landmarks, road signs, lights, etc. If you aren't paying attention, it is easy to miss what your are looking for.
OVERTHINKING THE CLUE
Clues have a very literal meaning. Do not overthink them, they are not designed to be a rubiks cube. Overthinking leads to a lack of confidence and can lead you astray.
Most clues that have a Ghost next to them in the clue book will have zero turns. It is designed to be a "filler clue" to allow you time to watch the associated video. Take out your phone and use your camera to scan the QR code. Follow the link to the video and enjoy some haunted history. The augmented reality app does not read these QR codes.
STICK TO THE ROADS
Clues will ONLY take you down roadways, not into parking lots or driveways. If you turned into a parking lot, you've made a wrong turn.
Last, but not least, is there is a level of patience required while playing Danger Run. Not every turn or every landmark happens immediately. Sometimes you have to drive a little to get to the heart of the clue. Keep your eyes on the road and the clue on your mind.
