Team Treasure Hunt

Can your team solve clues, crack codes and beat the clock to uncover the treasure? Find out in one of our Team Treasure Hunts!

Set in the city of your choice, our treasure hunts work beautifully in a familiar city or overseas. We’ve run this treasure hunt in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Barcelona, Venice – and beyond! It can be specially themed and combined with sightseeing, entertainment and dining for a truly unforgettable experience. 

Add to your corporate conference for an immersive experience that improves every aspect of team performance. Or use it as a standalone event for team building or client hospitality.

How Does A Team Treasure Hunt Work?

Starting at your chosen briefing city, our host will begin by welcoming your group to this unique team building activity, setting the scene and explaining the aim of the game. 

Next, you’ll be put into teams and given equipment to help you in your quest. These will help you find your way around. Your goal is to find clues around your chosen city. 

You’ll visit shops, museums and places of interest – sometimes with special access to hidden locations – and meeting with costumed characters along the way.

More than a traditional foot-based treasure hunt, this event combines a cryptic search with high interaction between teams and characters. It requires strategic thinking from teams to be in with the best chance of winning.

The winning team are those who solve the puzzles fast! 

Our Treasure Hunts can be personalised down to the finest detail, our experienced team of treasure hunt writers have worked extensively in the UK and Europe providing the very best elements for an experiential treasure hunt.

Team Treasure Hunt Team Building Outcomes 

This multifaceted event requires teams to use essential team working skills. They need to manage their time effectively, communicate with one another, prioritise tasks and delegate responsibility. 

This event is a fantastic, immersive and fun challenge, which is full of surprises.

The code breaker treasure hunt can be adjusted to meet your needs. You can make it longer or shorter, integrate it with another event or book it as a standalone experience. You can also choose to complete it in a single block of time or split it into smaller chunks to complete over the course of a day. 

If you’d prefer an event based around a fixed venue, take a look at our All Manor of Mystery team building treasure hunt

Team Building Treasure Hunt Options

Interested in a team building treasure hunt with extra pizzazz? Add a vintage bus, London taxi or Monopoly variation on our Code Breaker theme. Your participants will travel round your chosen city in style, while completing their hunt!

Alternatively, opt for a paper-based scavenger hunt that requires true brain power and team work. Strategy is everything as teams have to cherry pick which tasks to complete to outscore their rivals.

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!! The Murder Mystery was my favourite and my team winning was the icing on the cake. The Haka showed how uncoordinated we are but the laughs ...just proves what an enjoyable experience we all had.
