Seattle’s Best Scavenger Hunt

Give your brain a workout with an intense scavenger hunt in Downtown Seattle, custom-designed to challenge even the most competitive puzzle-solvers.

Our 2016 public hunt was a success! Eighty puzzle solvers competed to find the answers to twelve intense clues spread throughout downtown Seattle.

What Is It?

Intense & Fun

Our scavenger hunt events are a fast-paced three-hour mental and physical race. To win, your team will need to work together to solve the clues quickly, plan the most efficient route through town, rapidly find the all answers in each location, and get back before everyone else. As you dash around town, you’ll explore hidden nooks and discover interesting features of the city that you never noticed before.

Mental Challenge

Our hunts are not for the meek! To solve the puzzles every member of your team will need to think in unconventional ways and approach problems from unexpected directions. To find the answers around town you will need to be both clever and thorough. You will search your surroundings high and low; look at features large and small. In short, this hunt is for serious enigmatologists only!

Team Building

Clues for our hunts contain a variety of puzzle styles and trivia from pop culture, science, technology, movies, music, history, and many other topics. To solve all the clues you will need to make effective use of each team member’s unique knowledge and skills. The winning teams will be those that cooperate and communicate the best.


We asked previous hunt participants for feedback on our hunts.
