Race: Saturday, 16th March 2019

Weather:  Overcast & rain expected  … but it didn’t rain!!

Four teams competing for the gold medal today. 
 
Two of the teams were 10 cousins making up two teams of five, competing for the gold medal – would one of them win! Yes, congratulations to team BICDADE on winning (the other team of cousins won rose gold – bronze!! – a great effort).
 
Luckily the rain held off and the race was completed in a very good time.

Adventure Activities Sydney

The Sydney adventure game for almost everyone

When you’re looking for adventurous things to do in Sydney, you may initially dismiss our scavenger hunt as not being adventurous enough. But we’d say, don’t judge until you’ve tried it.

While we might not plan to dangle you off the end of a rope, force you to confront fears you want to conquer, or give you heart-stopping moments, we will give you an experience that will bring out your competitive spirit and get your adrenalin pumping.

And while our adventure activities in Sydney are not really suitable for anyone who’s not mobile, if you’re fit, active and over 14 years of age, we offer the kind of exhilarating adventure racing Sydney locals and visitors to the city will love, for its ability to bring out your strengths and your sense of adventure.

Be the star of your own action adventure in Sydney

By taking part in one of the Fantastic Race Sydney adventure activities, you’ll get to become the star of your own action escapade.

Just like Robert Langdon, immortalised by Tom Hanks in the Da Vinci Code, or Benjamin Gates who was played so well by Nick Cage in the National Treasure series, you’ll be pitting your wits against the clock to solve the puzzle, although there’s not quite as much at stake as there was in these particular movies.

And just like these characters, there’s no need to go it alone, as you’ll have a team of equally eager treasure hunters to help you to achieve your goals.

Sydney adventure activities for your next team building day

Whether you’re looking for a fun day out with your family, or you want to surprise your staff with a team building day with a difference, Fantastic Race Sydney is the perfect way to encourage people to work as a team and to find cunning ways to beat the opposition and come out as winners.

You’ll probably find that you have skills that you didn’t know you have, and you’ll certainly discover hidden gems in Sydney that you didn’t even know existed, but that’s all part of the fun of taking part in such a well-organised and well-thought out adventure activity.

Perfect for groups or individuals

While you do have to be part of a team to take part in our adventure activities in Sydney Australia, don’t worry if you don’t have a ready-made team as we’ll provide a team for you.

We want everyone, whether you’re an individual or a group, a Sydney local or a visitor, to be able to experience the thrill of participating in one of the most fun and entertaining adventure activities Sydney has available.

And who knows? The added bonus of joining in the fun on your own is that you’re likely to make new friends while you battle your way around Sydney.

Race: Sunday, 3rd March 2019

Weather:  A hot day! Autumn is not cool…

My lovely team, a family of Amazing Race addicts, joined me to see the sights of Sydney and find those devious clues! They had a wonderful time and thought the clues were very clever!  AND being true FANTASTIC clue solvers, THAT clue did not allude them!  If you are looking for something different to do this weekend, sign up to do Fantastic Race Sydney – you will not be disappointed!

Race: Saturday, 2nd March 2019

Weather:  A bit muggy and humid but bearable!
 

A team of visitors to our lovely city and what better day to do the race than on the day of the Sydney Mardi Gras parade.  While waiting for my team to finish I sat at our finishing spot and had a great view watching all the masses, dressed up in their gay pride outfits, make their way to Oxford Street.  I also got to see all the floats!  AWESOME. Our team had a great time and finished among all the glitter and feathers of a gaggle of bodies getting dresses and made up to go on a float … so much fun and the atmosphere was electric … a real happy buzz!

Race: Sunday, 24th February 2019

Weather:  Blue skies for Sydney and a nice warm temperature – not too hot!!! Three teams racing today – which means all teams will medal woo hoo!!!!  All managed to find me (first challenge met) and headed off into the bowels of Sydney to find clues. 

A great finish time of just over 2 hours by the first team with the other two teams finishing within half hour of them. All teams have a FANTASTIC time and not one team stumbled on THAT clue!!! Want to know what THAT clue is?  Join us next weekend for a stroll around Sydney CBD going in search of those devious clues!

Fun Things to do in Sydney

Fun things to do in Sydney for locals and visitors

One of the reasons why Fantastic Race Sydney is so successful is because we offer fun things to do in Sydney city that will appeal to both Sydney locals and visitors.

And that’s because we’ll take you from one part of Sydney to another, compelling you to stop on route and take note of things and places you probably wouldn’t see or notice otherwise.

Once you’ve sampled a Fantastic Race, we suspect that you won’t want to keep the experience to yourself. We think you’ll want to tell everyone you know about your experience, and how it’s one of the most fun things to do in Sydney CBD.

And when you consider that the price for taking part is so reasonable, compared to other kinds of Sydney sightseeing trips, it might even become a regular event when you’re looking for an adventure activity to share with family and friends in the future.

Race: Saturday, 9th February 2019

Weather:  Blue skies for Sydney and hot! – 30oC.
 

Wow, a big day for Fantastic Race Sydney – 5 teams including a stag party (two teams of 5).  All off and racing in record times.  Who would use the help line first? I didn’t have to wait long …. the first phone call was at ‘that’ common clue that throws everyone!  

One team (yes from the stag party) thought they could cheat and try to work out the end location – failed miserably and headed to the Opera Bar to drown their sorrows (or find a hangover cure!).  

The other stag party team won in a good time of 2h 20 mins – well done Team United FC! – gold medal recipients.

Think Fantastic Race Sydney is your cup of tea – an Amazing Race around Sydney solving devious clues – if so jump on our website and book today…

The race was completed in a really good time of 2 hours and 22 minutes by our gold medal winning team!  Awesome!!.  Teams all had the race down pact … no use of the help line was needed … very clever!

A hot day so the cold beers at the end of the race were well earned …

Race:  Saturday, 2nd February 2019

Weather: Overcast with one patch of rain but still very muggy!
 

Bit late getting started as one team was a no-show (only two teams raced!). Off to a good start but the help line was used by one team at the clue that a lot of teams come unstuck with!  Regardless both teams did good times and enjoyed seeing parts of Sydney not usually on the sightseeing must-do list for tourists! Only 4 minutes between teams with finishing time just over 3 hours.

Do you want to see if THAT clue will challenge you! 

Book in to do the race with a team of family or friends….

Happy Australia Day everyone!

Race:  Sunday, 20th January 2019

Weather: Cooled down to a nice 26oC and an overcast day

Two teams out to race around the streets of Sydney CBD.  Off and racing and not a peep out of both teams until they stumbled at Club 6 – ??.  

What will the times be … with they beat our race record.  Not they didn’t, but great race times anyways with the winning team taking 3h07mins. Both teams had a FANTASTIC time and enjoyed the competitive nature of the game.

Weather: A nice cool 28oC with a nice breeze

Four teams racing today.  I got them very pumped and enthusiastic with my starting cheer!

All teams solved the first clue very quickly and off into the streets of Sydney they raced …. all quiet on the help mobile – no phone calls until clue # 4 (this is always a tricky clue – come do the race and see if you need any help!).

What will the times be – no race record broken today but all teams came in within 15 minutes of each other.

 

Race: Saturday, 12th January 2019

Weather: Warm (and very humid)

We had a lovely team of 6 from Sydney, out to see the sights and enjoy each others company.

They were not too worried about putting up a  challenge for the fastest race time! They stopped for lunch (I know, in a race … really!!!) and still managed to do the race in a respectable time of just over 4 hours. 

Shel and his team of ladies had a wonderful time and want to do another race route VERY soon.  I will need to pull finger and get another race route happening.

Race: Saturday, 29th September 2018

Weather: Sunny for cold in the shade (and quite windy).

We had a team from Brisbane racing today.  They managed to get to the starting point which is always a positive start!  They both enjoyed Fantastic Race Sydney and would like to see a race in Brisbane.  I will try to accommodate them.  Team MC Hammer finished the race in a time of 2:44 minutes ….  Why not grab a team and see how fast you can do Fantastic Race Sydney – will your team become the team record to beat??

Race: Saturday, 22nd September 2018

Weather: Nice warm day – hot 26oC

We had one team racing today – a team of four friends down from the Blue Mountains for a day out.  They dressed up and had a ball.  They did a very respectable time and earned their gold medal! Deserved their glass of bubbly at the end of Fantastic Race Sydney.

Race: Saturday, 15th September 2018

Weather: Gorgeous sunny, hot day in Sydney Town!

We had two teams racing today – all rather competitive which is always a good vibe.  Off and racing with a bit of a sneaky covert operation taking place at one of the clues – so clever Morgan! The teams set an impressive time and finished in 2h 32mins and 2hr 37mins respectively – only a help line time penalty the difference!

Thanks for supporting Fantastic Race Sydney – we hope to see you again soon for another race route.

Weather:overcast but Sydney was nice and it didn’t rain on our parade…

We had three teams racing today – all pumped and ready to race after our starting cheer.  All teams solved the first clue very quickly and off into the streets of Sydney they raced.

Race: Saturday, 1st September 2018

Weather: blue sky with a bit of cloud cover.

We had two teams racing for the gold medal and bragging rights! Both teams were keen to get started and out of the wind.  First clue – solved – check! Off to find clue 2. Both teams thoroughly enjoyed themselves, but they did have to use the “phone the host” help line to get a clue or two. The winning team finished the race in just over 3 hours – FANTASTIC effort team .
