Toronto Scavenger Hunt 2016

May 16th, 2016 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - (Comments Off on Toronto Scavenger Hunt 2016)

This is the single largest, most intense, free scavenger hunt in Toronto. From hardcore competitors in matching jerseys, to single players looking to meet friends, or families with young kids; we take pride in creating an event every player can enjoy! Whoever you are, by attending the Toronto Scavenger Hunt, you’ll experience a full 2 hours of craziness, where we push you to the limits.

Details:
When: Saturday, May 28th @ 1pm
Where: Queen’s Park – North side of the Horseman Statue

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1755130258057196/

What to bring:
– A fully charged smart phone
– $10 for certain tasks

You may want to bring:
– Map of Toronto
– TTC Day Pass
– Bike, skateboard, etc.
– Team costumes

How The Events Works: The scavenger lists will be distributed. The list will contain tons of activities found throughout the downtown core. You will be tasked to complete challenges, find obscure items, solve puzzles, find answers, and take pictures. Some will be easy, and others will be quite challenging. You will have a max of two hours to hunt. Bonus points will be awarded if your team returns early. All groups will meet back up at the horseman statue at Queen’s Park to tally the points. The entire event takes around four hours.

Groups: To be successful at this event you will need to work together with a team. The maximum group size is 8 people, but groups can be smaller. If you are looking for extra group members (or you come alone) we pair people up to form larger groups before the hunt begins.

Prizes: Thanks to our generous sponsors, the first, second and third place team will all receive significant prizes this year. The first place team will receive a prize package valued at $750, second place $500, and third place $250. If there is any year worth winning, this is it. Our sponsors include: Real Escape Game, Comedy Bar, Battle Sports, Malabar Ltd, Queen Video, Carleton Cinema, and more to come.

Volunteers: We need all the help we can get! Thinking about volunteering as an actor or judge? Give us a shout at improvintoronto@gmail.com, and let us know. All volunteers will receive pizza for lunch, great company, and the opportunity to help create an amazing, public event.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
