Scavenger Hunt

A magnifying glass

Come explore Wonderland in a themed scavenger hunt! Earn points for your team of up to four people by exploring, attending presentations at the Fair, and capturing flags based on technical knowledge, social engineering skills, perception, and above all, quick thinking.
