Whether you are a baby boomer and have your 50th birthday coming up or maybe you are younger or older, we have an Aberdeen treasure hunt for you.
A treasure hunt is perfect for a get together of family and friends as it is sociable and fun with the added edge of friendly competition. It is inclusive and you will find clues that will appeal to all ages and all abilities. So, instead of having an 'ordinary' birthday, make it 'extra-ordinary'. At parties, friends usually occupy one part of the room and family a different part, seldom mixing. But if they have already met and had a great afternoon together, they will be well warmed up for the evening event.
Our birthday treasure hunts are designed to run for 1-3 hours but the timings are at your discretion. There will be questions to answer, tasks to perform and photo assignments to complete, we will also include a word quiz so there is always something to be done. Teams will need to blag their way into establishments and coerce members of the public in order to get their photos and collect the shopping list items for those all important points. A late return will cost them hard earned points.
So waste no time, contact us to discuss your exact requirements NOW!
We have ready prepared DIY (self-managed) treasure hunts in Aberdeen and elswhere in Scotland, the rest of the UK and in the capital cities of Europe. But if we don't have one in your region, talk to us as we are always looking for an excuse to prepare another treasure hunt! Unlike some hunts, ours do not rely on GPS technology etc making them accessible to all (though we can provide you with a smartphone or tablet based hunt if required). If you want to add a more professional edge to your birthday treasure hunt, we can supply an experienced event manager who will make sure that the event runs smoothly and who will keep the fun going throughout.
However, before the event, we will need to know a little about the 'birthday boy' or 'birthday girl' so that we can customise your hunt. We can include images and set specific tasks based on any amusing anecdotes that you send us.
Your personalised DIY treasure hunt comes via the post as a pack containing the clues (enough for 4 teams - you decide on the number of people in your teams) and the other tasks (photo challenges, scavenger list, word game) plus the answers of course. Extra sets are available (extra cost) if you expect to have more than 4 teams. Please contact us after ordering.
Your Aberdeen treasure hunt or scavenger hunt has factual, fun and amusing clues that will make you groan when you work out the answer - then there is a 'shopping' list and a word quiz, as well as photographs to take thus keeping all team members busy.
There are more clues and photo challenges than can possibly be completed in the time available so participants will not run out of things to do.
Teams need to be back on time to mark the treasure hunt or risk losing points for every minute late. The marking session is great fun with teams marking their own results under the watchful eye of another team member, but the organiser's decision is final. The marking sessions are always good entertainment with plenty of banter and tension as teams watch their results unfold.
Marking of the smartphone or tablet Aberdeen treasure hunt is automatic but each team has no idea of the scores of the other teams until all is revealed at the finish venue. Clues can be answered or skipped but you can't return to them. Hints are available for the clues if needed but at a points cost.
Your Scavenger or Treasure hunt can be written with start and finish locations to suit your event and the photo tasks ensure that you have a lasting memory of your day.
Answering the clues and winning the day's treasure requires good communication, teamwork and plenty of creative thinking.
