CityChase Treasure Hunt

Did you hear the story of Maggie, who knocked on her coffin lid hours after she was hanged…?

This unique city treasure hunt will bring your local area to life. Combining stories of sinister citizens past and modern day legends of sport, film and music, your teams will learn more about the area they work in whilst competing in an interactive treasure hunt.

Get To Know Your City In A Fun And Interactive Way

Teams will find themselves re-enacting classic film clips that are set in the city, walking in the footsteps of historical figures and discovering classic local cuisine. They might even organise the biggest mass Macarena the public has ever seen!

Ditch the traditional tour guide and learn about your city through an interactive and fun game. From Edinburgh to Essex, Glasgow to Great Yarmouth, Aberdeen to… well, anywhere! Our treasure hunts can be fully customised to reflect whichever city you choose to play in.

How Do Our City Treasure Hunts Work?

Our experienced events manager will take charge of the whole day, so you can relax and leave the hard work to us. We will arm the teams with an iPad that’s loaded with our custom app. The teams will then race around the city aiming for the hotspots indicated on their map. When they reach them, GPS triggered tasks will pop up on the screen. The more challenges they complete and the more creative their photos/videos, the more points their team will earn.

Once the time is up, the teams will reconvene and prizes will be given to the highest scoring team. The debrief will also feature a chance to see the photos and videos each team captured during the day – hilarity guaranteed!

What sort of tasks will the teams complete?

The sky is the limit! There can be trivia based quizzes, brainteasers or puzzles. Other tasks are more creative in their nature and often require a photo or video response.

Not only are these great fun to take, they provide a fun finale during the debrief when we share each teams’ creative efforts with the whole group. In some tasks, teams need to find real life objects, in others they will need to find answers in the real world around them. Your staff will also hunt for QR codes hidden throughout the city and make use of augmented reality to reveal challenges “floating” around them! Digital weapons will get the competitive spirit going as teams disable each other’s iPads for short periods of time to gain an edge over their rivals.

What Benefits Do Our City Treasure Hunts Provide?

Your staff will get to know each other better in a fun and relaxed way. The challenges are designed to foster teamwork and creativity. Team members will need to communicate and cooperate to be successful. Different tasks require different skills, allowing each team member to shine throughout the day. Participants will develop a better understanding of the strengths of their co-workers. These might include the ability to think quickly under time pressure, think laterally so solve a problem, or even unearth some hidden dancing talents…

Your Event, Your Way

We can tailor our treasure hunts to your individual needs. This can be a small touch, like adding your custom branding to the in-game app, to a fully bespoke and unique event for your company. Our team events can be used to reinforce your company’s values and brand awareness amongst your staff. We can also add company specific feedback at the end to help you learn more about your employees’ opinions.

Our city treasure hunts can be tailored to run anywhere. We can start at your offices and end at a chosen venue.
