PREPARATION TIPS

Teams walk a lot during the event. If you are not used to walking for extended periods, get yourself in shape beforehand. Walk at least three times a week, and wear old, comfortable shoes with good treads for the event to avoid blisters.

Make sure you get some breakfast in the morning. Although caffeine may help you wake up in the morning, you might want to avoid it (caffeine acts as a diuretic, causing you to need more bathroom breaks).

PACKING TIPS

Although you need only show up with a writing instrument, the following is a helpful list. Consider packing everything into a backpack (or a hydration pack) so your hands are free:

- Water bottle in a holder or hydration pack such as a Camelbak (you will not want to waste time buying soda)
- Comfortable shoes
- Sunblock (the higher the SPF the better)
- Writing instrument
- Clipboard
- Sunglasses
- Hat
- Water bottle
- Scratch paper
- Small snacks (raisins, nuts)
- Water bottle
- Rain poncho or large garbage bag (poke arm holes) if weather calls for drizzle); umbrellas just get in the way
- Bandages for blisters

PARTICIPATING W/ KIDS

Are you a parent who is considering registering for MouseAdventure? The following may help you decide whether to bring your children with you.

If you want to bring your children, consider registering and playing leisurely just for the fun of it, since you want to make sure to allow for potty breaks, diaper changes, and periodic breaks.

MouseAdventure lasts all afternoon, and your children will have to wander around the park without going on any rides until after the event. Consider this and your children's demeanor.

The Trivia category may require an extended period of sitting while you concentrate on the exercise, so your children may feel ignored and get bored.

The extra amount of work involved in doing both the Trivia and Quests activities is such that you might want to consider doing just the Quests.

If you have a child small enough to ride in a stroller, find a friend or a sitter to watch that child while you participate, or decide which parent will participate, and which will be the sitter. You will be moving non-stop through the park to get everything done, and a stroller will slow your entire team down.
