How Your Treasure Hunt Will Work
Why Treasure Hunts Work
Our Scavenger and Treasure hunts can be written with start and finish locations to suit you. We find that hotel venues are very popular. We cultivate relationships with local venues wherever we hold a treasure hunt and can therefore suggest locations suited to the nature of the event and size of your group if you do not have a specific venue in mind. If the hunt is just part of a multi-day corporate event, it is no problem to us to run it from your venue.
Treasure hunts can be tailored to your exact needs or you can have an 'off-the-shelf' version. DIY treasure hunts are available from our DIY treasure hunt web site. To customise your treasure or scavenger hunt, we just need to have a chat. You can tell us of any specific locations to include or give us some amusing information about the participants and we will include it.
Each team is given a treasure hunt booklet containing traditional treasure hunting tasks. You must also navigate your team around the city on their urban challenge or through the countryside using a map. In the case of a city, obtaining a map is part of the event! For extra points teams take photographs of specific subjects and local landmarks with a digital camera. To develop planning and decision making in your team, we always set too many clues and tasks for the time available. Teams must select the challenges and the most efficient route to gain optimum points. Heavy penalties are handed out for late arrival back at base and for the team splitting up so the winning team will have shown flexibility as well as good planning in order to meet the deadlines.
Our UK and international treasure hunts and scavenger hunts have factual, fun and silly clues..........there is a shopping list and a word quiz as well as photographs to take thus keeping all team members busy, and by lending digital cameras to each team we can also provide a lasting memory of your day.
Teams need to be back at the finish location on time or risk losing points for every minute late. The marking session is great fun with teams marking their own results under the watchful eye of another team member, but don't forget the organisers decision is final (unless swayed by a bottle of red wine!!!!!!!!!!!)....these marking sessions are always good entertainment with plenty of banter, and tension as teams watch their results unfold. Results sessions are always interesting whether your team is in a pub, conference room or French bistro.
Who wants a treasure hunt?
The treasure hunt is great for businesses who want a fun and effective team building event. It makes great corporate entertainment or for staff reward days. If you have offices in different locations, the treasure hunt or scavenger hunt is a great way for staff from the different offices to get to know each other.
Conference organisers will find that they are a great conference break event. Delegates can let their hair down for a few hours and 'recharge their batteries'. They will come back to the next session refreshed and receptive. With a treasure hunt conference break there will be no more snoring from the back row!
It is great too for private individuals and charity organisations. And it is also rapidly taking over from the 'weekend in Prague' becoming the new generation of stag and hen event, the perfect daytime event to enhance your weekend 'do'. They are fun, sociable and involve everyone - email your stag or hen enquiry from here.
