Scavenger hunts are fun and interactive. Most people love solving a good mystery. What many don’t know is the amount of work that goes into the planning stage. It needs a great mind and one who can look beyond the obvious tips to create a great scavenger hunt, especially for adults. Here are a few tips to help plan a scavenger hunt for adults.
1. Pick a Location
The first thing you need is a location. This will highly depend on the setting that the scavenger hunt will take place. If it is a team-building for work, you can choose an outdoor venue with several places to hide items. If it a casual party at home, you can do it in the compound but make sure there are ideal places to work with.
2. Mark the Routes
Once you have a location, you now need to draw or identify your routes. They can be actual paths, or the clues can act as the paths as well.
3. Create the Clues
Talking of clues; keep them captivating but not obvious. The mystery is everything.
4. Set the Rules
Every game needs rules. Rules can add some difficulty in the challenge, making it even more exciting.
5. Ticketing and Registration
Once you have the top four tips in check, you can now think about how the teams will come in and if need be, how you will give or sell your tickets. A scavenger hunt can be a great idea for fundraising as it combines both fun and charity work and removes the strain that comes with making donations.
Finally, how will you identify the winner and what prize will lure people into participating? The reward could be one of the items on the search list, or it could be in the form of a trophy or cash prize.
