Wacky Adventure Walk Game - Ottawa, ON

Wacky Adventure Walk Game - Ottawa, ON
2 hours
USD 10.00
Wacky Walks is a unique walking game. It is similar to a board game in which the power, or control shifts from one player to another, and instead of a board, you'll be navigating the city streets with your smartphone to play. <br>The objective of the game is to have fun, learn some facts about the city, be a little wacky, and enjoy the company of whoever you are playing with. Wacky Walks will start out by designating who will be the first King or Queen (kind of like a Team Captain), but don't worry, that could soon change. You'll then go out on checkpoints throughout the city. <br>At each checkpoint, the players will need to answer a question about the checkpoint and the players, or “pawns” as we call them will perform a task for the King or Queen. <br>Wacky Walks is done completely on foot and usually takes about two hours to complete. But don't worry, you won't be alone. You'll have a remote/virtual guide that will be available in case you get stuck.

 Other Items of Interest at Ottawa Airport

The Ottawa Airport is notorious for losing checked bags or for bags not accompanying your flight (personal experience from a few IHT Team members). It is recommended you bring a change of clothes with you on the plane just in case.

If you are transiting to the United States from another city in Canada via Ottawa be very careful of your checked luggage as it will not be automatically transferred to your US destination. This is despite contradictionary advice given by airline agents. You NEED to pick-up your luggage at the carousel belt in Ottawa and re-check your luggage otherwise your bag will remain in Ottawa. There is no real logic to why this process in in place other than lack of resources available at the Ottawa Airport to simply transfer your bags for you.

 Disabled Facilities at the YOW Ottawa Airport

Specific spaces on both the Ottawa Airport Arrivals and Departures curbs are reserved for drivers who possess a handicapped parking permit and who need to leave their car unattended temporarily (no more than 20 minutes).
