ONLINE REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED. Day of registrations at the event are welcome. 

You’ve seen the heart-pounding adventures and glory-stealing moments unfold on shows like The Amazing Race, Expedition Impossible and Minute To Win It. The Seriously Funny Family Adventure Challenge is just like that! Only different. Well, let’s be honest . . . REALLY different. But that’s what makes this event so SERIOUSLY FUNNY! This family fun-filled challenge will involve teams* (of two to four) racing across the downtown areas of Grand Rapids to engage in fun and exciting timed challenges requiring fast thinking, fast acting, and reckless abandon.


Check out this video from last year’s Seriously Funny Family Adventure Challenge.

NEW FOR 2017!

For 2017 we will be using a mobile phone app to reveal clues and scoring. This means at least one member of your team needs to have access to a mobile phone throughout the event. We’re excited about this new addition as it will create more opportunities for wackiness. Closer to the event participants will be requested to download the app. More information about where to download the app and instructions coming soon! There will also be volunteers onsite day of the event to help install the app and answer any questions.
