We love scavenger hunts that are filled with puzzles and riddles, and we wanted to bring one to Portsmouth….and so Diversions Excursions was born!
What is Diversions Excursions?
Diversions Excursions are outdoor scavenger hunts in downtown Portsmouth. You will receive a story and a packet of clues, puzzles, and riddles to help you solve the mystery. The clues will send you around downtown, along popular and not-as-popular streets. In addition to a fun experience solving riddles, we hope you will also enjoy a tour of this lovely city!
As a new venture just launched, we have one hunt available: The Treasure of John Paul Jones. We are hoping to receive positive feedback and launch additional hunts in the near future.
When Can I Play?
Hunts are currently offered as a walk-in service. Visit Diversions Puzzles & Games at 123 Congress Street and a sales associate will be happy to set you up with everything you need to play. Hunts will be sold up to 2.5 hours before the store closes to ensure you have ample time to experience the hunt to its fullest. Please allow an extra 10 minutes to sign your liability release forms and receive your hunt information.
Hunts will also end at Diversions Puzzles & Games. Please note that our store closes at 9:00pm Monday through Saturday and 6:00pm on Sunday. If you have not arrived back by the time the store closes, we will not be able to stay open late to await your return, and no refunds will be given as a result.
Who Can Play?
Anyone can play, but this is especially designed for adults who enjoy puzzles! Children may find this too hard on their own, and so we don’t recommend bringing them along. We find this hunt is best in teams of 2 to 4 players, but you can certainly play as a smaller or larger group if you choose!
How Much Does It Cost?
Hunts are $19.99 for anyone over 8 and free for those under 8. Groups of 4 or more paying adventurers are $14.99 per person.
