DIY scavenger hunts with Urban Hunt

🕵️‍♂️ By Lauren Holford | ✍️ 15th Jun, 2020


Following the success of our scavenger hunt trail builder during lockdown, we are stoked to introduce our official DIY scavenger hunt options that put you in the director’s chair of your very own amazing race.




Our personal trails are designed to allow you to create an intimate experience for two to four people, perhaps as part of a date, birthday or even proposal. Create your own custom clues or questions completely personalised to you by including names, memories, in-jokes, photos, songs...the only limit is your imagination! 

Whether you want to revisit special places together, embark on a themed trail based on your specific interests, or discover a new area or place in a unique way, our personal trails give you an easy-to-use platform to organise a scavenger hunt and play your very own adventure. Indoor, outdoor, urban, rural, educational, funny, tricky, straightforward - the choice is yours! 

Your trail can be played an unlimited number of times by single teams as long as they are not playing at the time. And the best part? We wanted to provide a creative platform accessible to our whole community of explorers, so our personal trails are free scavenger hunts that won’t cost you a thing!   



For multi-team events of up to 20 players, our premium trails give you the opportunity to create a really engaging activity that is heaps of fun to play. Perfect for a catchup with friends, family reunions or small team socials, our gamified interface promotes interaction and a live leaderboard encourages competition. Choose to create a time-based race or if you prefer to encourage players to relax and take their time, you can opt for point-based scoring that puts the emphasis on accuracy over speed.  

As with our more basic personal trails, you design your own scavenger hunt that you can customise to you and your group, but with the added options of unlimited questions to make your trail into an epic adventure and Did You Know facts to promote learning or include quirky or little-known details. Password protection is included for added security and priority support to ensure your event runs smoothly, so you can be confident in providing an amazing group adventure. 

Our premium trails are a truly awesome tool for creating a customised team-building event, educational activity or just pure entertainment for up to 20 participants. As with our personal trails, single teams have unlimited plays, but premium trails also come with an event licence for up to 5 teams to simultaneously play and compete against each other plus the option to purchase additional licences to repeat your awesome event with another group.
