are all kinds of themes to choose from
with new themes
being creating every year. However, we must first answer the
question WHY have a theme. There are actually several reasons.
The first is largely to give your treasure hunt a bit of credibility.
You see, who wants to go on a treasure hunt for no reason?
It's much more fun when it's set within a larger picture.
Within themes, the treasure hunt can be aligned with a storyline.
It will be much for fun for your guests to save a trapped
spy, recover the Holy Grail or search for sunken treasure
if the details of the treasure hunt itself support those efforts.
And final reason is that it just plain more fun!
are several considerations in choosing a theme and storyline:
use something that inspires YOU. That's right, YOU. If you
find it exciting, you can make it exciting for others. Simple
your participants in mind. Is it something that THEY could
be interested in? (Although, my experience shows that EVERY
theme is interesting if presented the right way.)
in mind your surroundings. Will you have access to a wooded
area? Perhaps you'll want to search for Bigfoot or discover
an ancient idol in India. Do you have access to the top of
a tall building? Sounds like a great place to meet a British
Secret Service agent.
one can always rent/buy props and costumes (if you choose
to use them), it might be a good idea to look around and see
what kind of items you have access to. Because there are SO
many different themes that are possible, make it easier on
yourself (and the pocketbook) by choosing one that you already
have readily available resources for.
