  2. Race to solve clues guiding you to buried treasure!

    Tips for Success and What to Bring:

    • Download the app ( iOS | Android ) and Login to the app well before Hunt Day to redeem your tickets and create your team. Watch the videos above!
    • Join the Facebook Event Page for your city and scroll through our posts there. Loads of good info awaits!
    • Watch recaps of past Hunts in various cities to get an idea of what activities to expect (red packs are not needed, those are sold separately at major discount for anyone who wants them but they are not required).
    • Watch interviews with past Champs to hear about their experience and tips they have for you.
    • Read the Rules and Waiver page and Posting Rules page.
    • Come prepared with as many items as you think you may need as a team for what might be on the Adventure List. Most of our Champs tell us their "car was packed with everything we saw in your videos of other Hunts". They were well prepared to blaze through the Adventure List successfully.
    • Bring with you: water, snacks, attire needed for weather in your area that day, swimsuit, towel, phone charger, sunscreen, good attitude ;)
    • When: 9am local time on the date listed for your city--always Saturday at 9am.
    • Where: You can start from home or wherever you want, but for those who want to meet other Adventure Hunters and do activities together (loads of fun and usually to your advantage to be there), we will suggest a starting point on the Facebook Event Page for your city the day before the Hunt.
      • In each city, we try to arrange for all of you to get discounts at a restaurant or pub. If we have one in your city, it will be shown in the app upon finishing. Finish and you can go get your grub and drink on at a discount and party with fellow Adventure Hunters--that much more of an incentive to finish!
