    This summer a buddy and I are going to put my family through the paces in a "Amazing Race" style game throughout the city. (I live in Ottawa Canada)

    Just looking for some tips from anyone who is familiar with the show. We don't want one team getting too far ahead of another so I would especially like to hear ideas on how to keep it close.

    Ideas for challenges, road blocks, etc...

    Thanks,

    You can help us by being a guy who hands out clues.
    Interested?
    PS- Being from Ottawa maybe you can give us some advice.
    We already have them going to 3 exhibitions at the newly renovated war museum. Can you think of any physical challenges that we can do in Ottawa?

    Just make sure you have friends that match the stereotypes they use on the show....gay, mother & son, lifelong friends, african-american couple, older couple. [​IMG]

    Seriously, You should contact local museums or attractions and see if you can find things out in advance to set up. For example if their is a go-kart place. See if you can prearrange for someone to come and have to do 3 laps in a set time.

    Todd, great idea about the go-karting![​IMG]
    I'll check that out.

    I've already checked out the War Museum and it is all set up.

    Thanks,

    You have to make sure to rig the last leg to let the 2nd place team get closer (sarcasm).

    To get the 2nd. Flag you have to stop by Grandmaster Sam Kim's Tae Kwon Do and fight a blackbelt to first blood.

    "You have to make sure to rig the last leg to let the 2nd place team get closer (sarcasm)."

    HAHA!

    You have to make sure put a semi famous couple in and have people help them all day. (sarcasm)

    PPffftt!

    Sounds like a great idea, a golf challenge would be cool too hit a ball into a basket around 100 yards?
