The Best Site Visit Ever

The Amazing Rush

Rapid City's message, Do Big Things, is a community mantra and an inspiring invitation for all who visit. There are so many big things to do throughout Rapid City and the Black Hills that visitors often express how they wish they could stay longer. From this, an extraordinary and competitive site visit is held each year.

The Amazing Rush is an annual event where meeting planners can experience bucket list sights, unconventional venues, downtown culture and nearby national parks and monuments, all in just two days. The competition is big and the itineraries are even bigger, giving planners the chance to do something BIG...something amazing.


Two Action-Packed Seasons

Each year, The Amazing Rush takes place during National Travel & Tourism Week. Competitors embark on a two-day adventure filled with cultural pursuits and iconic landmarks. They venture from fun, to educational, to explorative and even challenging tasks. Discover two seasons of site visit experiences unlike any other.
