Team Building Treasure Hunts

Team building treasure hunts create the perfect opportunity for teams to improve their communication, think strategically and improve relationships. These shared interactive, fun treasure hunts will encourage your team to work together in order to complete a challenge.

Poisson Rouge has been designing and running treasure hunts for over 25 years, so can offer you a wealth of knowledge and experience to match what is needed for your team. We offer a whole range of exciting and unique treasure hunt formats that are ready to go. We can match the occasion or the appetites of your team whether you need it as part of a conference agendas or a stand-alone team building activity.

Team Building Treasure Hunts Ready To Go

Treasure hunts require the participants to work in small teams, the challenge is to find hidden clues, seek out information about the venue or local area, solve riddles, take photographs, shoot film, meet celebrities, try foods, find ‘treasures’ and have as much fun as possible. They are a great way to see and get to know a town, city, area or venue. On foot, by bike, car, taxi or public transport, we can match what will work for you.

There are many team building treasure hunt ideas on our site and we are constantly developing and adding new one’s but if you can’t see what you want – call us anyway because we’ll be happy to create one specifically for you.

Hi-Tech Or Old School?

Whatever challenge you choose we can deliver in two different modes

For “old school” we give each team printed clue sheets along with wide format polaroid Fuji Instax Cameras, maps, compass, rucksack etc . The Polaroid pictures are fantastic as they capture instantly and uniquely a moment in time forming great mementos of the day. They also require much more thought and planning as Polaroid film is limited to 20 exposures – It’s a whole different ball game!

For the high tech version we give each team equipment as above but this time they get an Ipad tablet with unlimited 4G data and GPS. They get geo located clues instead of the clue sheet, maps and Polaroids. Once they have worked out each clue – the ipad will automatically pop up their question or task when they get within 50 yards of the designated co-ordinates. The film and photos from each team is automatically downloaded to ‘central control’ and are displayed immediately after the event.

Opting for the digital version teams can see where all the other teams are during the event

  • send messages to other teams and to the Poisson Rouge Event Team
  • see what scores each team has ‘live’ (although the Poisson Rouge event team can disable this function from time to time to keep competition high
  • Poisson Rouge Event team can also fire bonus questions and tasks to each team individually or all together at any point

Both formats are equally exciting and for those who like the ‘latest’ technology then our geo-location treasure hunts are simple the best!
