A classic scavenger hunt with a twist!
If you’re looking for a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt, we have one—with very unusual challenges for things to collect and team photos to take that will exercise your brain and your funny bone. Your tasks may involve strange uses for food, new lyrics for old songs, people in uniform, strangers wearing valuable words, surprising secrets about local landmarks, and more. If you’ve been on scavenger hunts where you’ve had to collect boring things like clothespins and obscure CDs, you’re in for a surprise and a treat.
Each hunt challenges you to find and create fun items, to get creative for Team Photo Challenges, and to find our staffers for a surprise challenge. In select locations we also include some of our famous, tricky questions about fascinating places. If you like sleuthing and escape room games, there’s a puzzle-filled murder mystery edition. And the deluxe edition lets you customize the game to give it a personal touch.
Choose the version that fits your group best:
The Grab ’n’ Go Classic Scavenger Hunt
This hunt can be played anywhere and is the most cost-effective option. Teams of six fan out to tackle challenges that they will absolutely enjoy:
Items to Find and Create
As in a classic scavenger hunt, you’ll have to locate and create items that will exercise your brain and your funny bone.
Can you create and name an amazing new food by combining two unlikely foods? How about an appropriate trophy for the hunt winners? Three items that rhyme? You’ll be surprised by the results that come from great teamwork.
Team Photo Challenges
We’ll give you an unusual “photo op” to create, and everyone has to get into the picture (except the person holding the camera, of course). We craft the photos to allow room for creativity while also delivering dramatic visuals (and not just tens of shots of people standing around smiling and pointing). You might be challenged to demonstrate a member of your team’s superhuman powers. Or treat a staircase as if it’s a carnival ride. Or eat food in a surprising way.
Participants use their own smartphone cameras and send the photos to our photo sharing site. Teams get to see each other’s photos as they hunt. And, you’ll get a URL of all the photos of the day which makes a great keepsake of the adventure.
The Mystery Message Challenge
Your hunt materials will include a coded message. What does it say? To crack the code, you’ll need to solve three crafty, fun puzzles, involving a few trivia questions, intriguing text or email messages, a musical phone call, and other surprises. Can you piece together the key that cracks the code and unlocks the mystery message?
Surprise Bonus Challenge
The hunters must find the Hunt Host at a specific location to complete a special challenge.
The Murder Mystery Mayhem Scavenger Hunt
Uh-oh: Someone playing the game with you is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. His or her good side knows nothing about the evil side—and the evil side has challenged you to a duel. Your group has been poisoned, with only 90 minutes left to live. You’ll have to complete a series of challenges and solve interlocking puzzles to reveal the killer’s identity. If you succeed, you get the antidote. If you fail…well, you know.
To succeed, your team will need to tackle murder-mystery-themed photo challenges, word puzzles, secret web pages, coded text messages, and more.
If you love “escape room” games, you’ll love this team-building activity. But even better, you won't be locked in a room for an hour: the Murder Mystery Mayhem Scavenger Hunt game can be played virtually anywhere. It’s perfect for any mixed group, private party or a corporate team-building event of any size.
The Grab ’n’ Go Deluxe Scavenger Hunt
Let us tailor the hunt to your needs: We can customize the Grab ’n’ Go Classic challenges to feature anything you want to emphasize or celebrate. We’ll get the information from you and weave it into challenges involving collecting and creating objects, taking team photos, interacting with the Hunt Host and more. You can even customize the Mystery Message Challenge to contain any phrase you’d like the hunters to receive.
All Grab ’n’ Go Scavenger Hunts are also available in an International Edition, for hunters whose first language is not English. Also available in Spanish. También disponible en español. Editions in other languages are also available.
