Are you looking for an outdoor event which will challenge your teams problem solving, observation, leadership and team dynamics?
One of our walking treasure hunts is the ideal solution, not only does it address the above, in a relaxed informal way, but it is also a fun and dynamic way to explore a historic city.
We provide team building treasure hunts at many locations and major cities around the USA. Our treasure hunts are great for a FUN and a testing challenge!

Each team is given a hunt pack consisting: back pack, map, treasure hunt, digital camera (optional), pencils and mystery envelope. The team is taken on a tour of the town by the hunt. In Brighton for example we visit all the main tourist sites: the Pavilion, Pier and famous Lanes as part of the hunt, we also usually incorporate a visit to a pub or coffee bar!
In our treasure hunts teams compete in an enjoyable and creative atmosphere, working together to find the winning formula. Teams are asked to solve cryptic clues and riddles which guide them around the trail, on their way they may meet characters (optional) who will assist them and be asked to collect various “treasure” articles and complete photo challenges (optional). Teams are scored upon correct answers to the trail questions, number of treasure articles acquired and the time it takes to complete the trail.
As the start of the treasure hunt is staggered, there is also a quiz to complete prior or post to the teambuilding treasure hunt. The points from the quiz are weighted and added to the treasure hunt score. The team with the highest score from both activities wins the challenge.
Our treasure hunts are completely flexible so they can be incorporated fully into your requirements. For example we can add assessors who will join the team to motivate each group and log team dynamics as required.
The participative nature of our treasure hunts and their adaptability to different business scenarios enables:
- Team working and co-operation through friendly competition
- Decisions and mistakes to be made in a safe learning environment, where participants can build confidence
- Trust in others to be built through improved departmental, individual or external relationships
- Staff to become more aware of themselves and others
- Individual potential to be realised or discovered
- Leadership, problem solving, planning and communication skills to be tested and developed
Combine all this with the motivational and stimulating impact of taking your group away within the USA and you have a very powerful tool.
To exploit your team building treasure hunt to maximum effect requires careful research and planning. Our treasure hunts are prepared for you personally, so if you would like the event tailored in any way to enphasise a particular skills you wish to develop within the team please let us know. Our dedicated team will work closely with you to understand your needs and turn them into reality through consultation, research and planning beforehand and on the day event management of the treasure hunt. After a full consultation with you, the treasurehunt creation team will spend a day visiting the location of the hunt and writing the treasure hunt tailored to your needs. The treasure hunt route is double checked immediately prior to your event so amendments for unexpected road or shop closures can be made.
