London is the perfect city for a Teambuilding Treasure
Hunt. Its colourful history well known landmarks and attractions are
the ideal back drop for a treasure hunt.
All our treasure hunts events are bespoke and especially written for
your company, we can theme them for example to a particular period
London history, the Romans, the Great Fire of London, the London Blitz,
or to an area of London, the City, The River, or Hampstead. The possibilities
are endless, your team can do these events either on foot or we can
arrange Black Cab Hire, Limos, or Travel Cards
for your teams.
The event will start at a location of your choice, or
we can suggest one for you, usually they end at a pub or restaurant.
On arrival at the final location the event manager collects the team
packs, de-briefs the teams, and then announce's the winners.
Teams are supplied with question sheets, Digital cameras and information
packs to help with solving the clues based at various the locations.
Clues may be visual, historical, anecdotal, technical, cunning, cryptic
and humorous - but each is essential to guide the teams to the next
location. Successful completion of the day will depend on teamwork,
keen observation and lateral thinking.
A Tie Breake Quiz
Our briefing of the teams will serve to inform, inspire and enthuse
all the participants. We will cover health and safety issues and give
them a rough idea of what they can expect from the event and the different
things they will have to do during the event. For example, there are
different sections to the treasure hunt. In addition to the questions
they will have to answer as they visit different locations, there is
an 'I Spy' section of images that they will have to identify as they
make their way on the treasure hunt trail. There is also a 'Photo Challenge'
which is a series of ten different scenes the teams will have to record
of themselves. For the 'Photo Challenge' we issue each team with a camera
and a list of ten pictures to be taken. Following the event we will give
you a copy of the photos so that you can share them amongst yourselves.
They are often wonderful mementos of the event with hilarious results!
There is also a 'Team Portrait' to be completed by creative / artistic
members of the team. Lastly, there is a 'Tie Break' section which contains
a series of random questions that will count towards the overall score.
These questions may range from being factual to historical or cultural.
The teams will also have to come up with a name for themselves (to be
written on the front of the treasure hunt pack).
Before we hand out the treasure hunt packs to each team, we will explain
that they may not need to visit every destination contained within the
treasure hunt. It is up to the team to decide the best route to take
to gain them the most correct answers. The winning team will be the team
that arrives at the final destination on time with the most correct answers.
Also we will tell them that there is no such thing as cheating - within
reason, of course. Meaning that anything they can do to obtain the correct
answer is available to them (phone a friend, ask the audience etc!).
There also may be more treasure hunt there than they can complete within
the allocated time. This is on purpose as we do not want everyone to
complete the treasure hunt early and then be bored! It is up to the teams
as to how they manage their time, their goal is to complete as much as
they can safely and correctly - and to have fun while doing it! After
asking if there are any questions, we will hand out the packs and let
the treasure hunt begin.
Our Team will meet and greet the teams as they arrive back from the hunt
and collect the packs back from the teams which we will then go away
correct / mark to determine the winning team while participants relax,
and share stories of their adventures. The marking should take us approximately
30 minutes. Once we have determined the winning team, we will then come
back to the group, do a debriefing and announce the winning team.
