City-Wide Scavenger Hunt Coming to Kansas City!
Safely distanced outdoor fun, benefitting Harvesters Food Bank
St Petersburg, FL – Pirates are invading Kansas City! Cap’n Graybeard’s map has been lost Downtown and The Pirates Treasure Hunt needs your help to find it. The hunt, created by event planning company Scavengee, invites you and your best mates to don your most creative pirate gear and head out on this high-tech, city-wide hunt.
In the first, socially safe event this summer, The Pirates Treasure Hunt will have you searching for buried treasure while encountering virtual pirates, collecting pieces of eight, and conquering numerous challenges. All you need is a sense of adventure, a smartphone, and the ability to channel your inner Pirate.
“Part scavenger hunt and part mystery adventure, Scavengee uses proprietary technology to layout a virtual ‘where is it’ board game across the city”, said Scavengee Creator, Steve Tishman. “Teams of up to 6 will explore various sites where our virtual pirates will test your knowledge, powers of deduction, and creativity before providing pieces of the treasure map. Each group will collect map pieces to help them find the location of the buried treasure. They’ll earn points for each completed challenge and prizes will be awarded for the highest score, best-costumed team, and most creative team name.”. “This event was created to help people transition back to some normalcy, while also Harvesters Food Bank”, Tishman added.
The Pirates Treasure Hunt is a 2.5 – to 3-hour long event designed for teams of 2-6 players. Tickets are available for $50 per team (plus $2.75 ticketing fee). Kids under 12 can participate for free.
