Scavenger hunt: The Detective Hunt

A cool smartphone scavenger hunt with tricky detective puzzles to solve on the go! Set the scavenger hunt up anywhere you like – you decide where, when and how far! For children age around 8-12 years old. The scavenger hunt can be solved by one group or up to 10 teams competing against each other for time! Let the chase of the notorious thief Stickyfinger begin!

Private detective Sleuthington needs help tracking the notorious but somewhat clumsy thief Stickyfinger, who has stolen a large amount of gold coins. But it seems that there’s a hole in the money bag – follow the thief’s trail!

There are eleven map positions to be found and ten detective puzzles to be solved along the way. When a puzzle is solved, the next position is revealed, leading the participants to the final destination!

The Detective Hunt is designed for children of mixed ages. If children are to solve it by themselves, they should have started school and be able to read and count (approx. 8-12 years). However, there are also questions that younger children can participate in and solve with a little help.

This is how it works! 

When you order, you will receive an email with a link to a small organizer’s website. On this you post teams and decide where the teams should go. You can choose to send all your teams along the same track, or create up to five different routes. You create the routes by placing map pins for the various questions on a map of the area where you want to do the scavenger hunt. You decide when, where and how far!

One smartphone with internet connection is needed per team. Each phone also need to have our free app GrapevineGO installed.

On the organizer’s website a QR code per team is generated and the scavenger hunt is started by scanning each team’s QR code with the app. Then it all gets going and the time start running.

Participants see one map pin at a time, only when they have answered a question correctly do they see the next pin. If you answer a question incorrectly, you get a time penalty of 30 seconds before you get to try to answer the question again. However, the questions have multiple choice answers, so sooner or later the team can continue.

Since only the next pin is visible, you can, if you want, run a scavenger hunt with a secret final destination without revealing where it all ends. 

When all teams have reached the final destination, a result is calculated on your organizer’s website. In this scavenger hunt teams can compete for time and the winner is the team that gets the most correct answers in the shortest time.

On your organizer’s website, there are two test teams that you can use to test the event yourself before running it “for real”.

You choose the size of the product when you order. If you want between 1-5 teams in your event, you choose this option, if you want more teams, you choose 6-10 teams.

    Fun game and cool that I was able to create three different tracks and start all three teams at the same time.
