What Is a Scavenger Hunt?
Fun Team-Building Activities—with a Dash of Culture
How Do the Scavenger Hunts Work?
Our scavenger hunts use witty, funny questions and creative challenges that bring out the best in a fascinating place—and in you and your teammates. You can explore a famous museum, a great neighborhood, or other cool venues. Special editions add a murder mystery or an “escape game” puzzle. Or we can bring the game to your office.

What our clients are saying
“IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! Seriously, the BEST event we've had with this group—and one of the best events I've ever held. Yeah, I'll be talking you up with some of my other groups! Mitchell was PHENOMENAL! And Kristi was fantastic. My staff was still talking about how great it was this afternoon. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
“The hunt was great. It is the perfect party for adventurous, curious kids of all ages.” —Cynthia Rowley, fashion designer
“I liked the level of interaction that took place while we were together. I also loved the energy that we shared in pursuing a common goal.” —Pierre Dobson
“We all truly had a fantastic hunt! Shannon [the Hunt Host] and her assistant were pros. It felt like a highly organized, top-notch adventure.”
“Thank you for executing a great hunt! We had a fabulous time—we are still talking about it! It was great to work with you, and I certainly look forward to working with you again in the future.” —Kristin Beebe, special events manager, O, The Oprah Magazine. (We created a citywide limousine hunt for the O ad-sales team, in which every question related to the magazine, Oprah Winfrey, or the magazine’s sales goals.)
“Thanks for the energy and creativity you put into our hunt at the Met—incredibly original....I loved your witty questions and racing through the museum. Everyone was thrilled. You have 50 new Watson Adventures groupies.” —Jeff Bezos, founder & CEO
“It was definitely a real pleasure working with you! You put up with our changes and hefty requests so professionally and creatively, and were a real partner in making this portion of our conference a complete success. I've heard nothing but great feedback from the team on the hunt, and the executives were buzzing about the challenges the whole next day. Thank you for adding such an important and FUN component to our conference!”
“We had a blast. I received nothing but rave reviews for the event: ‘This is the best off-site I’ve ever been to,’ etc. The activity was beyond any expectation I had. We loved the questions, and what a great environment [the American Museum of Natural History] to have a scavenger hunt. Ophira [the Hunt Host] was great: she handled the one extremely late team member with ease. Should the situation arise, I’ll highly recommend Watson Adventures to anyone looking for ideas for team building or a party.”
“Thank you for the work the Watson team did to expand and improve our Bounty Hunters contest. From the extra creative to the facilitation, Watson went above and beyond to provide an excellent turnkey service for us in Washington and Philadelphia.” —Marissa Shrum
“Our folks (including me) had a great time! Those of us who have lived/worked in the city for a long time learned a few things about the history of Midtown and some of the unique architectural NYC details. It was very well done, and we are looking forward to our next hunt!”
