Our Birmingham treasure hunts – what are they all about? You are told where to start your treasure hunt, given simple directions to follow and a map of the area. In between directions you have things to hunt for by simply looking around on buildings, plaques, signs and statues etc. They are not a race and once you have your treasure hunt you are free to do it whenever you like.
When you have completed your treasure hunt why not mark the answers while having a cup of tea, an ice cream or how about a picnic on a sunny day :0) and if you visit the members area on our website you can personalize and print your very own huntfun certificates. (There is no actual treasure at the end by the way sorry!)
When you buy a GPS treasure hunt this is what you get! Links containing everything you need to do a GPS treasure hunt with friends and families on iphones, ipads or android touch screen phones/tablets (basically touch screen devices with email/internet/geo-location enabled!). We include full instructions so you can personalise and set up the hunt ready for use, links for each of the teams competing and links to print out the handouts needed too.
Our GPS treasure hunts – what are they all about? You set a start and finish point and the time you and your competing families and friends will have to complete the hunt in. (If you want to stop off for a drink or maybe lunch on the way don’t forget to factor this time in!) You all then navigate your way to the ’huntfun hotspots’ where challenges including clues to answer and tasks and activities to be completed can be accessed. You will be awarded points for correctly completing the challenges set. Scores are calculated real time so you are able to see how you and the other teams are doing throughout the hunt. The aim of the hunt is to gain as many points as possible in the allocated time. You will earn bonus points for getting to the finish early and penalties will be awarded if you are late! Strategy and team work is needed to plan your route carefully to ensure you get as many points as possible and if you access a ’hint’ only half the points available will be awarded! If you visit the member’s area on our website you can personalise and print your very own huntfun certificates. (There is no actual treasure at the end by the way sorry!)
Wheelchair access. This hunt is suitable for wheelchair users.
Buggy Friendly? Buggies and prams will be fine if there is someone to help lifting up and down any steps but do have a look at the wheelchair notes too!
