Chicago Zombie Scavenger Hunt

Zombie Scavenger Hunt will show you a different side of Chicago while having a blast with your friends as you try to survive a zombie apocalypse. To survive, you'll use an app to find a list of survival items … plus there will also be zombie themed challenges.
Where:Chicago, Illinois
Price for:Up To 10 Participants
Can you and your friends survive a Zombie Apocalypse in Chicago, Illinois!

Zombies outnumber the living 10 to 1 and small colonies of the living are struggling to survive.

You’ll begin your adventure in downtown Chicago. Using an easy-to-download app, you’ll find the objects needed to survive (bandages, food, vehicles, necessities, and more), and solve zombie-themed challenges. If you need help, you’ll also have access to a remote host.

You’ll have 1-hour to find as many survival items as you can and take a picture through the app.

Zombies are relentless. It is not going to be easy! Rival colonies are closing in, and they will take what you worked hard to find.

This fun, interactive outdoors game puts a fun spin on sightseeing and brings you to places in downtown Chicago that you might never have been aware of.

  • No actual zombies are involved!
  • This is a private experience played with you and your team.
  • Fun for adults and children.
  • You can play at a time that is works best for you.

  • When you are ready to play, you’ll register with the experience provider and download the app called "GooseChase" onto your smartphone.
  • To play the game you will need an Android or iOS Smartphone with data plan.
  • You’ll go to the starting location in downtown Chicago on the day / time you want to play, and follow the directions provided to you in the Zombie Scavenger app.
  • Once you find a 'survival' item, all you need to do is take a picture to prove you found it. You do not have to purchase anything during the scavenger hunt.
  • You won’t be alone. Your remote host/guide will be monitoring your progress via the App every step of the way. You can chat with them on the App throughout the game to receive tips, hints, and help if you need it.
  • You can have up to 10 people on a team. The optimum group size is between 4 and 6 people.
