"Cryptic Quests is brilliant! Get out and pursue a mini adventure! Looking forward to more quests!"
"I’ve always been intrigued by “treasure hunts” and have always wanted to participate. I actually did my first quest last night and it was all that I had thought plus more. The clues were awesome and the storyline was fantastic. If you do get stuck, I love the hint option. I highly recommended this. You can do it solo or with a group! "
"So much fun!! It was a great reason to get off my couch & explore texarkana!"
"A lot of fun, we had a great time! "
"My first adventure with Cryptic Quest has me hooked. I really liked the website layout and the directions for the quest were simple. Being a competitive person, this was very exciting and enjoyable."
"We had a great time on our first family quest! Fun clues, well thought out, enjoyable all around! Looking forward to the next quest."
"We did this one with my 13 yr old son and 18 yr old son who was in from college for the weekend and had a blast. The youngest had the most fun when he was able to take the phone and lead us around the park to find each of the clues. We love to get out and hunt for geocaches and this was a great way to stay outside and mix things up a bit. The whole thing is well put together and well thought out. Thank you to whomever took the time to put this together; we're looking forward to participating in many more."
"We had a blast and a half! I took my 2 children and they loved looking for clues! My 5yr old even found a clue! We will definitely be doing more."
"Our quest was fun! We got a little turned around on one clue that had as many as 6 different possible answers, but we made it. Thanks!"
"Had a great time!!! Running around the city and trying to do it faster than others made for a great experience and fun time"
