What do our actual customers have to say about our Old West Treasure Hunt?

 

"Just wanted to say thanks for the Wild West Treasure Hunt. It was great! I work for **** Chartered Accountants and we used the treasure hunt as part of our annual team bonding day. It was a great success. We were able to use a large sporting stadium for the treasure hunt so we were able to hide our clues really well. At the end, it was great to see two teams scrambling for the treasure! We all really enjoyed ourselves." Amanda M.

"Just wanted you to know that I received many compliments on our Wild West Treasure Hunt. We held this event for youth ages 10-14...We ended up creating a 'miner's cave' in an under the stairs closet for the treasure to be hidden in...Lots of fun was had by all!" Denise D.

"Everything went GREAT! My coworkers loved it. All in all it was an enjoyable hunt that helped us bond more. Until the next one. God bless." - Michelle

"The clues and the gold were placed at a local park, so it was a fairly large area yet easy to monitor the girls as well. We set out, the girls made it to a few of their stations, then the downpour hit. The did not want to quit! I am a teacher, and it was really interesting for me to see the girls really ready and using their problem-solving skills to decipher the puzzles. Thanks for putting together such a fun hunt." LaDonna

"We purchased your Wild West Treasure Hunt last year and loved it! Thank you for all your help!" - Stacie S.

"Thanks very much. It was the perfect idea for a Wild Wild West themed team bonding day we are having for work next Friday. Treasure hunt looks great!" - Amanda

"I just had to let you know that the treasure hunt went great (Old West Puzzles)" - Michelle

"Our office staff loved the treasure hunt (Old West) we purchased from Quest. They make any office extra fun!" - Merida M.

Incorporating Treasure Hunt Adventures in the Classroom

A creative treasure hunt lends itself PERFECTLY to getting kids excited within a classroom setting. Themed treasure hunts can also add a new dimension to your themed unit - people remember more of that they DO than any other way! Follow these helpful tips to engage the children in new and exciting ways within a treasure hunt activity format.

* Remember, a treasure hunt doesn't have to be completed all at once. Different clues can be released throughout a day, week or month! In this way, a single activity can build the excitement within the classroom as your students progress on the hunt. Our treasure hunt puzzles packages allow for this kind of versatility as each puzzle comes with its own set of clues.

* Group your students in smaller teams to promote group problem solving skills
.
* To really build the excitement of your themed hunt, try having a letter sent to your classroom from one of the characters sending them on the hunt in the first place. This can be done several days BEFORE the hunt/adventure even begins to really drum up the excitement!

* Offer clues to the treasure hunt as rewards to the class for good behavior, academic achievement on a test, etc.

* They can also be great for family day events and especially SCHOOL FUNDRAISERS

* Teams can purchase a starter sheet to get them going on the hunt. The final destination of the hunt can be a hidden location where teams that finish submit their names into a raffle for a donated prize. The participants will have fun playing…and the prize is bonus!

* Have local sponsors pay for the opportunity to have their business advertisements printed on the BACKsides of all your clues and maps! This is a great way to earn some extra income beyond the participation ticket prices.

Incorporating Treasure Hunts Adventures in your Party

These days, treasure hunts are typically only seen at children's parties…not because of their inability to entertain adults, but rather due to the fact that adults have already been on more than they care to remember and the ones they participated in were largely all the same. Our themed treasure hunt adventures go beyond the stale versions of rhyming clue to rhyming clue. By utilizing these ideas, you can take your adventure even FURTHER for your guests!

* Allude to the adventure subtly in your invitations. There's no need to call it a treasure hunt - make it more exciting by naming it an adventure…and then giving them one!

* Have someone dressed up as a character in your treasure hunt adventure arrive at the party when it's time for the adventure hunt to begin. Depending on the theme you've chosen, having them come in costume could really impress your party guests!

* The versatility built into our treasure hunt puzzles allow for the activities to be spread THROUGHOUT the party. It can be the perfect activity for your guests to participate in as they mingle with the other guests and enjoy the other party activities you have planned.

* Placing your guests in small teams allows your guests to get to know other guests that they perhaps wouldn't have had the chance to know. At the completion of the adventure, your guests would be generally more acquainted with each other.

* Our adventure hunts have the versatility of allowing you to use any number of the treasure hunt puzzles and in any order. In this way, you can create the perfect activity to fit with the time and space constraints of your party!

Incorporating Treasure Hunt Adventure at the Workplace

Perhaps the two most important needs for a treasure hunt activity at the workplace to be successful are: It must be entertaining and creative enough to hold the interest of adults who have probably already been on more treasure hunts than the care to remember AND they must be versatile enough to not impede work throughout the day/week. Here are some additional ideas for incorporating treasure hunt adventures within the office:

* If the adventure hunt has enough versatility, you can spread the hunt throughout and entire day or even week. Release clues sporadically throughout the day… clues that will help them reach their goal. Each of the treasure hunt puzzles collections we provide have clues associated with each puzzle, allowing for this type of format.

* Clues can also be offered as rewards to employees as they complete different work tasks.

* Teams can be comprised of members within the same work department (to assist in the team building efforts) or from different departments to promote cross department relations.

* When incorporating a hunt as a fun activity to be done all at one time, incorporate the theme by way of decorations at the end of the hunt - giving them an exciting finale to their adventure!

* To encourage participation, allow those employees who successfully complete the treasure hunt to put their names in a raffle to win a prize at the end.

* Of course, treasure hunts also make great activities for family picnics and charity events!

Ways to Incorporate a Treasure Hunt Adventure at your Church

Churches are always looking for new ways to bring fun into their different ministry activities. From youth groups to adults groups, a themed treasure hunt adventure can be the perfect activity! Here are some fun ideas for using a treasure hunt at your church functions:

* They can be great for those family picnics when you need an activity that the WHOLE family can participate in! There aren't many activities that will entertain the small children AND the teens AND the parents. As our treasure hunt puzzles require TWO different problem solving skills (the puzzle solving - for adults and the finding of clues - perfect for children) our adventure hunts make for the activity for EVERYONE to get involved!

* Themed events are very popular among church activities and planning an adventure that fits within your theme is a VERY impressive addition!

* Having the participants break up into teams allow for a unique kind of fellowship as they each work together to achieve a common goal.

* Treasure Hunt Adventures can also be great for fundraisers! Sell tickets to participate and then allow those teams that complete the hunt successfully to add their names to a raffle for a donated prize!
