  3. What if I can't figure out the clues?

    We have operatives that will be watching... if you do not show up in a specific time period, we will check on you.

  4. Do I have to drive?

    Yes, unless you are in a group and someone else drives... or you are extremely fit and can walk 6 miles quickly (though this is not recommended.)

  5. Will there be walking?

    Yes, there will be walking, including stairs and hiking trails. Unfortunately, the historical buildings are not all wheelchair accessible.

  6. Is there actually gold?

    Yes and No. Yes if you solve the clues and get to the end of the hunt, there will be a small tube of gold flakes for each member of your party. No, there is no buried gold treasure in Youngstown (not that we are aware of anyways) as we made up the hunt. Though it is documented that John Young was paid $2000.00 in gold by Daniel Sheehy as payment for a portion of Young's Township land.

  7. Will admission fees be included?

    Yes, admission fees for historical locations are included in your ticket price. All you need to do is show the ticket agent your dated Dark Shadow Ghost Tour Ticket and you will be given a prepaid entrance ticket to the facility.

  8. Is there any food included?

    Yes, snacks and water/soft drinks are included in your ticket price at one of the hunt stops.

  9. Is alcohol permitted or provided?

    Alcohol is not provided as driving is required for completion of the hunt. We want you to be safe, so we go with "Don't Drink and Drive." You will be able, however, to purchase any additional food and drinks (alcohol as well) that you wish at the food stop so?

  10. How many people can participate?

    Each hunt is designed for between 1 and 8 people. If we are sold out, we can put you on a waiting list or set something up especially for you. The number of tickets remaining for each hunt are shown when you order.

  11. What if I want to do a hunt for a larger group (party or a family reunion) and there will be more than 8 of us? Can we still do a hunt?

    Just e-mail us and we can set something up special for you.

  12. What type of footwear should I wear?

    We recommend comfortable shoes like tennis shoes. We suggest you leave the flip flops behind.
