You and your famiy could win an Ottawa Urban Quest.

An Urban Quest is a small taste of the Amazing Race for the average person. Customers can choose from a variety of Quests and download their clue package online. Then, using their smarts, resourcefulness, and printed clue packages, teams explore parts of their city to solve puzzles and unlock their final answer. Once teams have the correct final answer, they enter it online to find out the final destination of their Quest: a mystery restaurant where a reservation has already been made for their group. Teams can also opt out of the meal portion and just try to beat the two hour countdown. The unique and original concept of UrbanQuest makes it a fun activity — great for dates, a group of friends, or an outing for the family. UrbanQuest offers a range of Quests to cater to these different groups.


My family and I took part in a Quest last summer and had a blast. You have a chance to get out of your car, onto the streets and get to know the city up close.


To enter, send me an email ( with "Quest" in the subject heading. You must be a Macaroni Kid subscriber to be eligible. UrbanQuest and Macaroni Kid are giving away Ottawa quests all summer (retail value $19.99) so you can explore with your family.
