20 Ideas for Your Next Team Building Scavenger Hunt

Is your team heading back to the office? Eventzee’s team building scavenger hunt app is the perfect tool to engage your employees, help them build bonds with each other, and become more ingrained in your company’s culture.

This may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and objectives, holding the perfect event can be a breeze. Our team has worked with brands and companies, both big and small and from a variety of different industries, to craft successful events that run via the Eventzee scavenger hunt app

To give you a head start on designing your next event, we’ve put a list together of some of our favorite challenge ideas from past events that are sure to get your teams working together in no time!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

  • Start off easy! Have the group members gather together and take a selfie. 
  • Have players search for people who have similarities to themselves. This can be similarities in their names, outfits, interests, and more! 
  • Have a player tell a story to the group about something funny that happened to them recently! Submit a video of the story being told.
  • Take two team members and have them pretend to switch the roles they perform for the company! They can submit photos of themselves pretending to do the other person’s job. This is perfect to get players more familiar with others who work in different departments! 
  • Have players get to know each other further by figuring out who’s worked at the company the longest! Snap a group picture of each team player holding up their start date in order of seniority.

Brain Teasers

  • One of these things is not like the other! Give the team a group of photos that have one similarity. See if they can choose from a set of multiple choice answers to guess what the similarity is!
  • Where, oh where, are you leading this team? Supply them with sneaky clues about a certain location in the office or campus and see if they can guess it right. Have them take a group selfie when they get there!

Get Active

  • Have the team members snap a picture of them doing a fun yoga pose in front of a nearby landmark!
  • Is it nice outside? Have the team members walk around outside and search for a tree that’s taller than the group’s tallest player!
  • Best place for a quick workout? Have group members do jumping jacks in a specific location!
  • Hide a QR code somewhere and the team a hint. The faster they find it, the more points they get! 
  • How many dancers are on the team? Have each team member think of a dance move, put them all together, and submit a video of the new routine!

Knowledge is Power

  •  Is there a mathlete on the team? Have them complete a math equation, you choose the difficulty! Make it extra intense by giving 100 points for the correct answer, but take away 25 points for every wrong answer they submit! Using Eventzee’s exclusive Quiz bonus timer, the fastest person with the correct answer will earn the most points!
  • Do your employees know everyone in the company? Show them a photo of someone they may know and have them try to guess the person’s specific role from a few multiple choice answers!
  • Does your company supply products with specific features? Give the team a hint and see if they can figure out which product you want them to guess!

Company Loyalty!

  • Supply the team with some sidewalk chalk and have them draw the company logo. Hopefully this can be done by memory!
  • Do you have company colors, a company mascot, or other branding that your colleagues should know? Have the teams jot it down!
  • How well does the team know your company values? This task can be a multiple-choice answer where they have to choose the one that does not belong!
  • Which team has the most company SWAG? Have them gather up their SWAG items and take a picture, then you can award bonus points to the group with the most impressive stack!
  • Become part of the sales and marketing team! Have the players pick a product or service that your company provides and make a poem or song promoting it! Submit a video of the performance.

Utilizing Virtual Passports to Engage Tourists and Visitors in Your City

Utilizing Virtual Passports to Engage Tourists and Visitors in Your City

With vaccination levels on the rise, there’s no doubt that people have begun to travel more. In fact, studies show that over the fourth of July holiday this month, air travel levels reached record highs compared to pre-pandemic numbers.  

While downtowns, both big and small, benefit from these visitors, making sure to engage those who choose to visit your destination is almost as important as getting them to come there in the first place. Small businesses, local restaurants, historic monuments and more, all benefit from an increase in activity.

SUMMERTIME ENGAGEMENT IN A COLLEGE TOWN

The city of Champaign, Illinois, for example, is an area that experiences the bustle of activity from its college-aged residents during the school year. During the summer-time, when those students travel home between semesters, there’s a brief lull in activity among the streets. However, with the local community coming out of the pandemic, Xander Hazel, Executive Director of Champaign Center Partnership, was eager to find a way to engage the local community and visitors to the area. 

Their event, 13 Thursdays, allows businesses in the Champaign area to offer promotions and get people visiting local businesses and restaurants. Now hosted through the Eventzee Scavenger Hunt App, the Champaign Center Partnership team thrives in engaging their visitors and community. 

“We highlighted all the business deals with QR code challenges (we call this the “business passport”) and included different types of challenges to provide fun scavenger hunt activities throughout the neighborhood,” said Hazel. “We also have giveaways throughout the summer to keep the momentum going and a grand prize at the end of the summer to encourage participation.”

The Eventzee scavenger hunt app is no doubt a fantastic tool when it comes to marketing your businesses and downtown areas, but it’s also a no-brainer when considering business logistics and environmental impacts. 

PAST EXPERIENCE WITH PASSPORTS

Prior to using Eventzee, the Champaign Center Partnership team printed hundreds of business passports, or coupon books with advertisements, that businesses would physically stamp when people redeemed a deal. Oftentimes, people would forget their booklet and need a new one. 

“We could give away 1,000 booklets, but we never knew how many people were actually using them,” Hazel said. “And then, we had to get the booklets back if people wanted to win prizes, so we had to take the extra step to establish drop-off locations. In 2019, the last year we did this promotion, we printed and distributed 1,000 booklets. Of those, we only got 6 booklets back.”

SUCCESS WITH EVENTZEE SCAVENGER HUNT APP DIGITAL PASSPORT EVENTS

Champaign’s experience with Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app has been much more successful this year. On top of reducing production and operation expenses, organizers were able to easily track player participation, communicate with participants in real time, and more. This year’s 13 Thursdays event has already seen greatly increased activity with almost 300 participants, and the versatility of challenge types has offered participants even more ways to play. 

Whether looking to set up a citywide self-guided tour, drive traffic to historical areas, or increase visitor engagement for local vendors and businesses, Eventzee has a solution. The Eventzee scavenger hunt app platform is free for participants to download, and has the most challenge types offered on the market, including QR code scanning, GPS, photo and video upload, and more. Every Eventzee event is customized to the organization or company branding.

The Eventzee platform allows businesses to create private scavenger hunts in physical places such as malls, tradeshows, company events or campuses to create immersive brand experiences.  For more information about Eventzee, go to eventzeeapp.com or contact sales@eventzeeapp.com.

Weekend Warriors Week 200, Bicentennial & Beyond

Another Weekend Warriors free photo scavenger hunt has started! You’ll find the usual details below, along with the clue list, but unfortunately we have to start our bicentennial celebration on a bit of a somber note. Our 200th Weekend Warrior free photo scavenger hunt, which also leads into our 4th birthday next week, will be our last one.

Now let us start off by saying that this is in no way the end of Eventzee, but it is the end of our weekly photo scavenger hunt series. Although we have had tons of fun seeing all of the crazy photos from hundreds of players each week, new opportunities within our staff have made us take a look at the current system. The free photo hunts started off as a way for us to market our different event packages, and along the way turned into a game all itself.

Running worldwide games takes time, focus and effort that could be better spent in different areas. Although this may seem like an unfortunate time, the decision to end these hunts is based on an opportunity for the Eventzee staff in other parts of the Freeze Tag family. Although we will miss it, it is in the best interests of our team to focus our skills elsewhere.

We simply cannot say enough how happy the past four years have made us! Our players have shown such excitement and creativity every weekend. You have all pushed our team to be more creative each week and surprised us at every corner. Heck, Dylan was even crazy enough to get the Eventzee approval buttons tattooed on his arm! We thank you all for 200+ weekends of photo fun and we hope you understand that the time has come to move forward.

As stated before, this is not the end of Eventzee. We still hope you always add an Eventzee hunt to your Munzee Events package. We hope you think of us for your next team-building or corporate event activity. The badges you have earned each week will still be available to pursue from these means. Don’t be surprised if we feel like throwing a random holiday scavenger hunt every now and then too! We even have some ideas we hope to further flesh out to offer you all even more opportunities to play, no matter where you are in the world. As a great man once said, it may not be in the next 1,000 hours, but stay tuned for more…

As for this weekend, we of course want to go out with a bang! The final Weekend Warriors free photo scavenger hunt will include 20 clues and last until next Thursday (1/31/2019) at 3 PM CST. You can also earn the awesome Bicentennial Badge (pictured above) just for having one photo approved throughout the week. As we’re feeling a little nostalgic we’ll probably be very trigger happy when adding photos to the gallery. You can find the clues below, along with the usual rules.


20 clues will be live until the hunt ends on Thursday 1/31 at 3 PM CST. Your photo will be either approved or rejected by our admin staff. Be sure to check the cumulative leaderboard so you can see how well you’re doing and remember that tiebreakers are based on the amount of time it takes you to finish all the clues!

The more photos you submit, the more badges you’ll earn for a variety of achievements. To see the Eventzee Badge List CLICK HERE. To see if your photos have been added to the gallery visit www.eventzeeapp.com/gallery. Let the hunt begin!
