What is a treasure hunt pub crawl?

When you are on a night out, you might be thinking about going to a bar. But why stay in only one bar? Wouldn’t it be even more fun to move around various bars, and enjoy every single one of them? And this is exactly why people organize bar hopping, aka pub crawl. In this case, you will get the craziest experience, by dizzily “crawling” from one bar to another.


The general idea of a bar-hopping to move around different bars in a night out. It can be either organized or disorganized. The unorganized ones are quite simple. All you need is a group of friends to meet at a bar, have some drinks, and decide spontaneously when to leave, where to head next. Theoretically, as long as you are not too drunk, you can keep on hopping until every bar is closed.


But what about adding a bit more fun to a normal pub crawl? Perhaps combining it with a treasure hunt is a good idea. While you are drinking in the bars, instead of playing normal drinking games, you can try to solve some questions. As you figure out these questions, you will be able to find some clues. These clues will then lead you to other activities, and eventually to the next bar. Also by solving these questions, you might also get some surprise prizes.  


How to make a treasure hunt?

A treasure hunt is also known as a scavenger hunt. In this game, the participants would usually work in a group. Through group work, participants could solve a question to unravel a clue, which will lead to the next clue. Through a series of clues, participants will eventually find the hidden prize.


Prizes are the motivation of the whole treasure hunt. After all, these are the “treasure” you are looking for! Some times there is only one prize at the end of the treasure hunt. But in many cases, there are actually more than one prizes. In this case, there would be a list. The aim in this case is to find all the prizes on the list. 


So if you are going to organize a treasure hunt, the clues are of the highest importance. Create your clues and search routes carefully, so that it’s neither too easy nor too hard. Also, make sure that the questions, or puzzles or riddles, are interesting enough for the participants. The fun of a treasure hunt lies in the process of finding treasure, it’s even more important than the prize itself. 


How to plan yout treasure hunt pub crawl event ?

There are a few general steps which one could use, when it comes to doing an organized pub crawl.


First and foremost, you need to have your own brand. You will need the acknowledgement of bars and clubs, in order to do organized pub crawls at their places. So make sure you distinguish yourself as a legitimate organizer. 


Second, you need to get into contact with the bars and clubs. With their permission, you know that you are clear to hold the pub crawl at their places. Especially in this case, you need to actually place clues in the bars, so permission is necessary.


Then you need to advertise your pub crawl using various platforms. You need to make sure people, or enough amount of people actually shows up at your pub crawl. Let them know the price for the pub crawl, as well as the starting time and location. Also the general route, venues involved, what to expect and etc. In general, make sure people come prepared. Also, since it’s a treasure hunt, you need to provide them the theme of the event. You sure don’t want to attract Star Trek fans to a Star Wars themed treasure hunt!


On the day when the event starts, make sure you show up at the meeting place earlier than your guests. Make sure you stay sober throughout the event, and lead your guest safely to each venue. After all, as the organizer, you are somehow responsible for the safety and happiness of your guests. So always stay calm but alerted, and everything will work out just fine!
