Pirate crews compete to win a share of the treasure!
The world’s largest outdoor escape game is coming to Houston; an event so big, it’s taking over downtown. Why confine your escape experience to a room, when an outdoor adventure awaits?
The Pirates Treasure Hunt will have your crew of landlubbers exploring the streets of Houston while encountering (virtual) pirates and scurvy dogs, collecting pieces of eight coins, and conquering numerous challenges… all in pursuit of discovering the location of the hidden booty. What do you need to participate? A sense of adventure, a smartphone, and the ability to channel your inner Pirate.
“The Pirates Treasure Hunt combines the entertaining and challenging experience of an escape room with an outdoor scavenger hunt” said Chief Creative and Event Producer, Steve Tishman. “City Scavenger uses proprietary technology to layout a virtual ‘where is it’ board game across the city and engages Swashbuckling Teams (comprised of two to six participants), to explore various sites where ‘virtual’ pirates test your knowledge, your powers of deduction, and your creativity before providing pieces of the treasure map. With each completed challenge, the teams earn points and collect clues to discover the secret location of the missing treasure. Upon completion, bragging rights and a $300 prize are awarded for the highest team score. The best-costumed team photo is awarded a $60 prize!”
“Additionally, a local nonprofit will receive a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold”, adds Tishman. “This is our way of supporting the local communities that support us.”
The Pirates Treasure Hunt is timed, allowing teams 3 hours to complete all the tasks and identify the location of the missing treasure. The event is designed for teams of 2-6 Old Salts & Scallywags (adults and teens). Lads & Lassies (kids under 12) and four-legged friends who might like to play can join your team for free. Tickets are available for $50 per team (plus a $2.50 ticketing fee). The Houston experience is scheduled for October 23rd. Pirates crews can begin anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 pm. The event closes at 4:00 pm.
