The Pirates Treasure Hunt – Huntsville

June 26, 2021

When was the last time Pirates were seen invading Huntsville?  It’s safe to say that if it’s ever happened, it’s been a couple of centuries, however, that’s about to change on June 26, 2021.  Cap’n Graybeard’s map has been lost Downtown and The Pirates Treasure Hunt needs your help to find it. The Hunt, created by event planning company, City Scavenger, invites you and your favorite mates to don your most creative pirate costume and embark on a high-tech, citywide scavenger hunt.

In this first, physically safe experience, The Pirates Treasure Hunt will guide you through the streets of Huntsville, encountering virtual pirates, collecting pieces of eight, and conquering numerous challenges… all in pursuit of discovering the buried booty.  What do you need to participate? Sense of adventure, a smartphone, and the ability to channel your inner Pirate.

“The Pirates Treasure Hunt was created to help the community transition back to some level of normalcy, while also benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of the TN Valley. This entertaining experience blends components of a scavenger hunt with all of the adventure of a ‘who done it’ mystery adventure,” 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 map pieces to discover the secret location of the buried treasure; upon completion, bragging rights and prizes are awarded for the highest score, best-costumed team, and most creative team name.”

“These unique scavenger hunts are perfect for fundraising and awareness events,” said BBBS Spokesperson. “Fundraising in the time of COVID-19 has been a challenge for everyone and City Scavenger has provided a convenient solution by handling the complete operational portion of the event and providing us everything needed to effectively market and promote it to our supporters.”

The Pirates Treasure Hunt takes between 2.5 and 3 hours to find the treasure and is designed for teams of 2-6 Old Salts & Scalawags (adults and teens). Tickets are available for $60 per team (plus a $2.50 ticketing fee). Have some Lads & Lassies (kids under 12) who might like to join?  Great! They can participate for free.  The Huntsville experience is scheduled for June 26th, with the first Pirates  beginning at 10:00 a.m. (Teams can begin their adventure between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., however, all Pirates must complete their Hunt by 4:00 p.m.)
