Mountain Town Adventure is back again in Winter Park with the Winter Park Wipe Out. This awesome spring break event is a combination of a chilly scavenger hunt and a wild adventure race that will have you pin balling around the town of Winter Park completing obstacles and challenges of all kinds.
This year’s Winter Park Wipe Out will kick off at 2pm from Hideaway Park. You and your friends will receive a map of the course which includes all the challenge locations. You have 3 hours to complete as many challenges as you can, doing them in any order. Complete more challenges and earn more party beads! Make sure to keep your eye out for the buses going up and down the Winter Park strip if you want to hitch a ride to the other side of town. All challenges close at 5pm, some come back to the Wipe Out Zone!
