Here’s a fun idea for a birthday party for a crowd old enough to have cars (or those with willing parents). You can set up a text message road rally using TextClues.
First everyone needs to start from the same location and this will be more fun in groups. Also everyone will need a cell phone – just don’t text and drive! Here we go:
Clue: Welcome to Tracy’s road rally 2012! Head to the shopping mall and get a picture by the fountain. Check the mall map, what store is at 4D?
Answer: Body Shop
Clue: Head down to the beach. How many wooden posts are there for volleyball nets?
Clue: Drive to the public pool. How many feet deep is the shallow end?
Clue: Go to the library. How many bookcases are there in the lower level?

You can also use our randomize feature to send each group these text clues in a different order.
