Sacramento’s First Gorilla Challenge

Posted on August 17

What happens when “Fear Factor” meets “Amazing Race” meets “American Idol”? You get the Gorilla Challenge, happening on Saturday, Aug. 20, where teams of two to five people (that create a team name and can, if they so desire, wear costumes) solve clues around the city, take pictures in silly poses and complete activities that range from fun to difficult and gross. Each team is given a card with clues that point in different directions—all within a 3- to 5-mile radius. Once a team gets to a location, team members will find an additional slip with instructions on what to do next with their camera—which could be taking a picture with an object, of singing for someone, of putting together a mini-puzzle, or dipping your hand in something disgusting to look for a clue, or making funny faces.

Each team will have as much time as it needs to get to 10 out of the 12 clues, and once 10 clues have been found, the teams will head back to the starting location (Old Spaghetti Factory on J Street) to win the finishing prize, redeem a ticket, or to simply enjoy live entertainment, food and drinks.

First place = $300 for the team

Second place = $200 for the team

Third place = $100 for the team
Best costume = $50

Runner-up = $25

There’s still time to register and take part in what’s guaranteed to be a fun and interesting time. It’s $50 per person and they're closing registration on Friday at noon . . . unless tickets sell out first. I’ll be there. Will you be among my competition?
