Pittsburgh Scavenger Hunt

2019 Pittsburgh Scavenger Hunt – REGISTER YOUR TEAM NOW! 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22ND – 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Another year, another hunt!
We’re back with another $500 buried cash and we want YOU to get a piece of it!

Last year we had 400+ teams play the hunt and many made it to the final location! Who will find the $500 cash buried treasure this year?

What is it?

It’s all in the name! Teams will travel from location to location with the help of clues that they receive scattered throughout the City of Pittsburgh. Each location will have a SnapChat Geo-Filter and will be staffed by a cluemaster with a physical copy of the clue to your next location as well as a Codeword. The first team to arrive at the final location with all of the code words will get to dig for the buried treasure, $500 CASH. (and yes, we literally mean dig, so make sure to bring your shovels!)

We’ll be following up the Scavenger Hunter with a FREE cookout at Ace Axe Throwing (while supplies last)! Cookout starts at 1:00pm, come try your hand at axe throwing and enjoy some drink specials at our full service bar! AFTER PARTY INFO

What is the cost?
$25.00 per team with a maximum of 5 people per team.

Can we have team members scattered around city?
Yes. However ALL code words must be gathered and ALL team members must be present at final location to dig for treasure.

Should we walk or have a car?
A car is recommended. The locations are spread around the city of Pittsburgh and surrounding neighborhoods. Walking may be difficult, or impossible.

What happens if the snap chat geo filter doesn’t work?
A staff member will be present at each location with a physical copy of the same exact clue on snap chat.

What stops teams from working together?
Nothing, but only one team will win and be given the prize.

Do I need to show you the purchased ticket day of?
Maybe! If you are the first team to arrive at the final destination, the clue master will ask to see a physical or digital copy of your ticket before you’re given the OK to dig.
