City SmartHunt®

City SmartHunt® is the ultimate technology-driven scavenger hunt for team building and corporate events! This is not a simple phone hunt. Your group will experience the cool interactive features of our SmartHunts app on Apple® iPads® that utilize text messaging, audio, video, FaceTime®, social media, QR codes, and GPS with built-in mapping to produce the coolest hunts ever!

These challenging activities encourage your teams to think SMART as they use our iPads to find landmarks, solve clues, answer trivia, search for items, perform tasks, complete challenges, and take photos/video during the hunt.

We customize each scavenger hunt to fit your goals, group size, and location. Our hunts can incorporate missions, location integration, orienteering, and geocaching. Your teams can play the game in any order, giving them the ability to create a strategy of choosing missions with the highest score or playing the game based on geography.

Teams will never lose connectivity to their game, even if the hunt takes them indoors. All photos, videos, and scoring are sent to us throughout the event so we can have them up on the big screen when your teams arrive at the final location.

Two weeks after your program, we will send you a link to a web page that contains all the photos and videos shot by your group. The page also includes an edited video plus all the scores, photos, and videos from each participating team. Now, that’s SMART!

So if your group wants to explore a city, museum, or any attraction, our SmartHunts location challenges will make sure your teams won’t miss a thing.

To ensure a great experience, aspects of the event may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
