Activity Details

  • Spy themed challenges
  • Self run – start any time
  • Great value, latest technology
  • GPS and image recognition

Encouraging solid team work and a great way to develop core team skills like commu­nica­tion, the Spy school smartphone challenge team building in Edinburgh is fantastic spy themed treasure hunt that will grip everyone in your team. Both flexible and challenging, the event is self-run and can be run anytime of the day to suit you but puts the team to the test once begun. Searching the ancient streets of Edinburgh for hotspots, the aim is to complete the many challenges and questions found there before the other team of spies do. In a world of espionage, you’ll need gadgets to get you through to mission accom­plished, so we’ve put a specially designed app on your phone acting not only as GPS system but to interfere with the enemy team. Become the next 007 and have dry martini’s shaken, not stirred afterwards to seal the deal.

What’s Included

  • Start any time – you decide on the day
  • Latest smartphone App technology
  • Creative spy themed challenges activated by GPS
  • A series of clues to discover who killed agent Jones!
  • Challenges include photo and video tasks designed to get members interacting
  • Uses image recognition.
  • Tasks and questions requiring an eye for detail as well as a magnificent memory.
  • Name your team & take selfies
  • Live scoreboard makes it competitive and fun

Your spy themed treasure hunt will use the latest GPS and image recognition technology, giving you an authentic experience that everyone can get fully immersed in. Taking to the streets, it’ll be team versus team in a high-stakes race against time with technology and your wits being your guide. Each smartphone (one per team) will need plenty of data to access the map and scoreboard systems. Along the way, you can hijack the enemy network and send hilarious selfies and messages to the opposing team in a bid to lower their morale and be sure to check the scoreboard often to keep track on their progress. The event will run for 2 hours and can start anytime of the day, so if you want to take it slow and chill out with stops off at the pub or race through it with the intense vibes of mission impossible, it’s entirely up to you.

Extra Info:

The App is designed for Android phones and tablets, the iPhone and the iPad. It will not work on Windows phones or Blackberry.

There are also minimum versions of the operating system that are required for the App so if you can't see it in the store it probably means your phone isn't compatible.

The minimum device system requirements are as follows…

  • iOS Version 10.0 and above,
  • Android Version 4.4 and above,
  • Whatever phone or tablet you use, it will also need a data plan, a compass and have GPS activated.
  • A fully charged smartphone will be required per team.

Whilst the App will normally work on other unre­com­mended Android & iOS devices, there may be times where users experience issues with certain areas such as poor battery life, GPS signal or small issues in the game. In particular, you may have issues if running the App on an old phone.

We had such a lovely, fun time in Edinburgh doing this activity. Everything worked smoothly, the weather was perfect, and everyone kept on talking about what things they had to do when eventually met up after.

Thanks to the Funktion team for all their help. I'm more than happy to recommend this to anyone who's looking for something to do as part of a group.
