We had a great time! The game was well-planned and so much fun. We got to work together, solve puzzles and run around the Pedway. The facilitators were great - enthusiastic and funny. I set up the event for our company and got nothing but compliments and thank you's for picking something so cool. Not to mention the totally reasonable... More

Our company used Waxwing for our team building event at the Art Institute. We worked with Andy to come up with a great custom game which was a combination of Labyrinth and Heist, it was sort of like The Amazing Race meets a Scavenger Hunt…in an Art Museum. Our group was separated into 8 teams of 3 and each had... More

We participated in an event as a team and had a great time. It was challenging, fun, and a cool way to run around the loop.

It was fun but getting it arranged was rather difficult. The options aren't easily accessible and my emails got messed up so it took a few attempts at reaching them before I got an answer. Once we got there it was fun to see people in their costumes trying to figure out who was a "fed" who was "mobster" and... More

I did the scavenger hunt this week with my team from work. To be honest, I thought it'd be lame but turned out it to be a clever activity (all 3+ hours of it). It was a great way to bond with my group members and it was more challenging than I thought it'd be. And who knew about all... More

We did a scavenger hunt through Waxwing as a team bonding activity. It was a lot of fun! Not only a very collaborative activity but also allows some to see parts of Chicago they may not be familiar with. I would do it again!

Awesome group experience doing the Labyrinth puzzle! I had no idea about the Pedway system before this . Would definitely recommend this to others.

Had a good time on this scavenger hunt, having gone with NU World Cup. Really good bonding activity, and a bonus was discovering how all of downtown Chicago seems to be connected underground. Very well organized, and a really good fun activity to do in a large group, as it becomes even more fun when competitive.

I had a lot of fun doing the scavenger hunt with NU World Cup. Got to explore the Chicago tunnel system. This was a very cool and different experience.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
