We held our scavenger hunt, and it was a HUGE success!!! The locale for our hunt was a small cosmopolitan town (just outside of New York City) called Hoboken. We first did some research on the town itself. Our team names were designed around those historical facts.
We kept the whole event a complete secret up until the very moment everyone boarded the bus for our "Mystery Bus Ride" to Hoboken. That in and of itself made it fun, since for weeks everyone was speculating and trying to guess what was planned for the afternoon/evening.
We also added another category to the Challenges: NAME THAT CLUE.... For this, we spent some time in Hoboken and took lots of pictures of store fronts and other landmarks, interesting items, etc., and then devised clues around them. The participants LOVED this challenge.
Everyone (even the initial skeptics) wound up RAVING about the scavenger hunt, and today it continues to be the foremost topic of discussion.
One of the BEST parts of the entire day was the presentations. The presentations were simply PRICELESS!!! We also had a DJ, and each of the teams "introduced" their presentation with accompanying songs.
Your scavenger hunt materials were WONDERFUL and truly made the event a tremendous success!!! Wish you could have been there!!! I'm so glad that we found your web site!!!
