Princeton Prowl Scavenger Hunt
A CRASH COURSE IN IVY LEAGUE FUN
The historic town of Princeton—where George Washington defeated the British—and the stunning campus of Princeton University combine to provide a scavenger hunt landscape that’s filled with history, art, dramatic buildings, goofy gargoyles, famous Americans, and gorgeous scenery. But this isn’t your ordinary scavenger hunt. On teams, you’ll follow a trail of clues and search for answers to tricky, humorous questions about what you find.
YOU MIGHT TACKLE SUCH QUESTIONS AS…
- What draining enemy did a Yalie leave on the Chapel? Answer: A bulldog, the mascot of Yale, stamped into a downspout. (The Chapel’s architect attended Yale.)
- At an arch that honors a ’child, how many boys seem to be thinking, “Home alone!”? Answer: Two faces on Rothschild Arch clap their hands to the sides of their faces like Macaulay Culkin in ‘Home Alone.’
To answer a question correctly, you need to be standing in the right spot, looking at the right thing. And that means anyone can succeed at this game, since it’s a test of teamwork, not trivia.
