Plunged in to the world of pirates, privateers and buccaneers, treasure maps, smuggling and gold, this themed treasure hunt is a hilarious and interactive team event designed to test any team's planning, delegation, communication and time & team management skills, all in a hugely fun environment!
Games start by teams being given a fun briefing from our very own Blackbeard where treasure maps, clues and treasure hunt packs of compasses, torches, spade etc are handed out. A quick head to head team challenge staggers the start before teams are then required to take part in this fantastic quick passed hunt to the treasure.
The event is totally flexible on location format and content; we can make it as team-building orientated or relaxed as you wish. Each event is written specifically for your group so we can start and finish at any venue of your choice. It is also ideal for the grounds of hotel or conference venues if you wish to stay on site. We give you everything you need: treasure maps, spade, the clues, swag bag, disguises, Polaroid camera, scavenger list, photo challenges - but after that you're on your own and the clock is ticking!
Teams compete in the following challenges:
Cryptext Treasure Map
Your treasure hunt includes the use of a CRYPTEXT "a portable vault used to hide secret messages" (pictured). Teams must answer questions found throughout the venue to work out the combination which opens the CRYPTEXT to reveal the treasure map.
The treasure map of your chosen venue with a selection of tasks and cryptic clues enabling you to find your way around, in groups of up to 8. Each challenge will lead you to 4 points on the treasure map. When all 4 points are completed then X will mark the spot of the treasure!!!
Guests will have to complete a selection of fun photographic challenges which will test their creativity and make them howl with laughter. Examples: get a picture of your team on a dessert island; get a picture of your team with the largest stash of gold you can find.
Ever wondered how to find a parrot? This is just one example of the obscure scavenger list items you will have to collect to earn more points. A two day old newspaper, a foreign coin and a pirate's hat!?
Meet the Characters
At the end of each point the guests will meet an unsavory or unlikely friend. At each of these points they will need to complete a challenge in order to receive the next piece of the treasure hunt. Character include Blackbeard, Anne Bony, Thomas Tew and Sir Francis Drake.
At each point challenges including solving ancient riddles, pirate quizzes, breaking in to treasure chests and interrogation will be tested.
We look to take you to as many interesting places as we can fit in to your event, including views of castles, churches, museums and parks. We do not include tours and paid visits to historic venues but are happy to add this to your day on request (POA).
Pub Visits (town/city based only)
If this is a reward event and you think your guests would enjoy a pub visit, we would be more than happy to add a few watering holes.
Guests will gain individual points throughout the day by solving clues, finding landmarks and getting that fantastic photo! The event culminates with a presentation awarding the runners up and winner with medals and the winners a treasure chest of bubbly and chocolates.
