On-Property Spouse Program – The Great Escape

This activity really showcases the feeling of Tex-Mex, which San Antonio is all about. And a Tex-Mex staple is most certainly margaritas and guacamole, and this activity has just that. We separate the group into teams. The teams then must create their own Margarita and Guacamole with the ingredients provided. During this time, the teams get the chance to answer trivia questions to win items that can be used to sabotage a rival team or benefit their own creations. The Great Escape brings out the competitive spirit in the attendees while also requiring a lot of teamwork. At the end, once the winners have been named, everyone can cheer to a good time in the Hill Country of San Antonio, Texas. Cost: $120 per person.
