"These Amazing Race Party Ideas are really Amazing!"
An Amazing Race Party can be a lot of fun for teens and adults alike! It’s the ultimate scavenger hunt mixed with physical activity, mental challenge, navigational skill and more! With proper planning, and a little creativity this party will truly be Amazing!
First off are the invitations to send to your guests. There are a few different ideas you could use:
Next you have to choose what kind of Amazing Race Party you are going to have. You have to decide where you are going to have it. A few places you can hold your Amazing Race Birthday Party is at a Park, at the Mall, in your Neighbourhood, or around your town. You can also host this party around your own house. Or, a combination all everything! If you'r planning our party in your house you’ll need some Amazing Race Party Decorating Ideas!
Decorate your house, or party room with different maps from around the world. Set up luggage and large backpacks with stickers and logos or flags from different countries. Hang pictures and posters of famous land marks around the world from different cities or like the 7 wonders of the world. The Pyramids, the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls to name a few. Buy some Beach ball globes and hang them from the ceiling.
Next you must choose your pit stop clues, locations, challenges, detours and roadblock challenges.
This can be a lot of fun! But first if you haven’t already done so, you must pick teams for your race. Create teams from 2-4 people depending on how many guests you have invited. Have each team choose a fun name. You can draw names out of a hat, or hand out different coloured glow bracelets or bandanas and the players with the matching colors are on the same team.
Your game will differ depending on where you host your party. Be creative with your pit stops. If your going to a mall or around town, don’t’ be afraid to pre-ask business owners to help! Most will be happy to if you explain it’s for an Amazing Race Party. Simply give them envelopes to hand out as players reach that stop. Inside will be the next challenge. Decide also, who be the judge on challenges. You may need to have a few extra helpers for this party for that very reason. If your keeping your party more of a scavenger hunt, use your passports, and have the business owners sign them or stamp them. Or, use cameras to take pictures of different items on a list.
Here’s a few ideas for challenges, detours or roadblocks:
For the party afterwards, serve different types of food from all over the world like Mexican, Chinese, Tai, Italian or your favourite!
