How does the Smartphone Urban Treasure Hunt Work?
Hit the streets in your smaller groups and explore the location whilst being steered to unlock GPS hotspots containing a range of tasks, fun interactive photo and video challenges and general knowledge questions. Devising an effective strategy is essential as you’ll be competing against other squads via the live scoreboard and photo wall on the app.
As each hotspot is achieved, your group will be rewarded with virtual scavenger hunt items which can be used to score bonus points at the end.
Once the squads have unlocked all the hotspots and completed the challenges, they come back together to reveal the winner. The winners are the adventurers who have accumulated the most points.
Who is the Urban Treasure Hunt for?
Perfect for businesses wanting to focus on health and wellbeing, or companies looking for an energetic activity in a particular location.
Is the Urban Treasure Hunt okay for large groups?
Absolutely! We can run it for groups between 6-250 in one session. However, if your group is larger just contact us as we have a few ideas for groups over 250+.
You'll break into smaller squads of 4-6 people during the event.
What equipment do we need to run the Urban Treasure Hunt?
Everyone will need to download the app to their smartphone. Please ensure your smartphone is fully charged for the event. Although everyone has the app, one person will be in charge of answering the questions. This will breed teamwork and communication between each squad.
How long does the Smartphone Urban Explorer last for?
Total duration for the treasure hunt is anywhere up to 2 hours. If you add a facilitator, you'll receive a 15-minute remote briefing and 15-minute wrap-up session that will round up to 120 minutes total for the activty.
How far could we walk?
On average people walk approximately 2 -4km depending on their location and routes they decide to complete the activity.
Do all the groups follow a set trail? (follow each other)
No - the treasure hunt can be accomplished in any order with groups making their own decisions about which 'GPS hotspots' to find first and in which order they carry out the tasks.
What do I get if I add on a facilitator for the urban treasure hunt?
The additional facilitator will add a formality to your event all via remote video link and include:
- An encouraging remote briefing to start off the experience
- Remote presentation/wrap-up of the team photos and videos from the event, all accessible via video for each participant
- Available for support throughout the urban treasure hunt
