Scavenger hunts have always been a fun way to interact with others and support camaraderie, but we’ve moved past the limitations of pen and paper. Eventzee takes scavenger hunts to a whole new level by supporting worldwide events and new ways to interact with players. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.

While photo hunts are totally fun and encourage social interaction, QR Code scavenger hunts can be used in a number of educational ways. When hosting your own hunt you may choose to use QR clues, which can be converted into a quiz or a GPS clue as well. GPS clues are especially handy if your hunt is throughout a city or campus with distinct locations.

Topographical Tourists
Eventzee GPS Hunts are great for showcasing unique and unknown parts of your town or city. Whether it’s historically important locations or simply a map of local restaurants, adding GPS coordinates to a clue is a fun way to get players exploring the places around them. Each clue’s location also shows up on the Eventzee map so it’s perfect for tours of all sorts.

We’ve Got Spirit How About You?
It’s not easy to get around campus your freshman year, but an Eventzee GPS hunt can be a fun way to help educate new students about their surroundings. Map out financial buildings, sports complexes and more important locations for your campus. You can even attach quiz questions to each location to test new students knowledge about the history of each building.

Late Night Latitude
Planning a night out? Pub crawls are a great social activity that double as a way of exploring a city’s unique nightlife locations. Get a group together and schedule out your whole night with Eventzee. Check in at each bar with GPS clues, then include fun photo clues to make the night unforgettable.

Creating Your GPS Hunt
Setting up GPS clues is easy. When you’re first creating your hunt you simply make sure the hunt is “Geolocation Based.” From there you’ll just add clues like normal with a clue name and description.

To set the GPS coordinates for an individual clue you’ll click on the gear icon to access the clue’s settings. There you can either search for the location or add the exact coordinates yourself. Then whenever you’re ready, just place the QR codes at each location.
