Q:  Can I change or adjust my quote?

Surely.  If your total number of participants change, either increases or decreases, Thrill of the Hunt will adjust your quote to reflect the updated information (pending minimum number of participants).

Thrill of the Hunt will offer options in the quote such as administration, photography, videos and such.  These are only options and are not dependent on the scavenger hunt, unless discussed differently.

Thrill of the Hunt accepts all major credit cards, Paypal, AHC, or you can mail in a personal or business check.  However, Thrill of the Hunt will not begin your scavenger hunt without the cashed checked and the signed quote.   Depending on your event deadline, this may or may not be an issue.

General

Q:  What makes a Thrill of the Hunt Scavenger Hunt unique?
A:  Thrill of the Hunt combines a traditional scavenger hunt with technology and social media to create a one-of-a-kind experience, taking scavenger hunts to the next level of interaction.

Q:  What technology is used in a scavenger hunt?
A: Since all scavenger hunts are custom, Thrill of the Hunt may use all or some of the outlined tools to make each scavenger hunt interactive and adventurous.  These can be discussed beforehand.

Public scavenger hunts are designed as is, and may use some or all of the tools.  As technology advances, Thrill of the Hunt will stay up-to-date and incorporate them, making our scavenger hunts even more challenging and fun.  If you have a suggestion for the use of a social media site or technology, email us at Game@ThrillofHunt.com.

Q:  Do I need a smartphone to join a Thrill of the Hunt Scavenger Hunt?
A:  Depends.  Private custom scavenger hunts could be developed without the use of technology, especially depending on the age of the participants.  Often times, a child’s scavenger hunt is built as a classic scavenger hunt, with unique elements but no smartphone usage.

Public scavenger hunts do require the use of a smartphone to participate in the entire scavenger hunt.  However, a participant without a smartphone or social media can participate, but wouldn’t be able to complete all the challenges, and therefore would be limited to earning prizes, but not totally excluded.  

Q:  Do I need social media to join a Thrill of the Hunt Scavenger Hunt?
A:  Depends.  Private custom scavenger hunts could be developed without the use of social media, depending on the age of the participants.  A scavenger hunt developed for a younger child doesn’t use social media.  Since our scavenger hunts are custom, this is an option to discuss prior to the quote.

Public scavenger hunts do require the use of social media.  Thrill of the Hunt offers a variety of the most popular social media to use.  All social interaction will be posted directly to a Thrill of the Hunt social site by the participant, usually using #ThrillofHunt.

Q:  Will my social media followers see my scavenger hunt interactions?
A:  Yes.  The participants are instructed to post all images, videos and answers to the Thrill of the Hunt social sites (typically Facebook or Twitter), but the posts will appear from the participant.  Therefore, the participants followers will see the activity, unless the personal settings are adjusted.

Q:  Can Thrill of the Hunt use my photos and videos taken during the scavenger hunt?
A:  Yes.  Upon signing up for a private scavenger hunt or purchasing tickets to a public scavenger hunt, Thrill of the Hunt reserves all photo and imagery rights without further compensation.  This includes photos and videos taken by the participant and posted to the Thrill of the Hunt social site.  As well as all multimedia taken by Thrill of the Hunt during a scavenger hunt.   All images will remain property of Thrill of the Hunt (The Piper Corporation) and will NEVER be sold or distributed without the participant’s consent.

Public Scavenger Hunts

Q:  If I request a location or scavenger hunt, will Thrill of the Hunt bring it to my neighborhood?
A:  Short answer, yes.  Thrill of the Hunt addresses all requests and takes each one into consideration.  However, sometimes there are permits and other legal issues that may slow our process, or hinder us all together.  Thrill of the Hunt may bring a scavenger hunt to a nearby location.  So if there is an event not scheduled in your area, please us know!  Go to Suggest An Event.  With enough interest, we’ll certainly bring the scavenger hunt to you!

Q:  I own a small business.  How do I get added to the Thrill of the Hunt scavenger hunt, to actually be on the hunt?
A:  If there is a scavenger hunt taking place in your area, either public or private, reach out to us!  Thrill of the Hunt will work with your business and offer suggestions on the best way to participate.  Visit our Sponsorship page for some ideas.  If you want to participate as a business owner and there is currently no scavenger hunt event in your area, go to Suggest An Event and tell us about your community.

Q:  Does Thrill of the Hunt offer sponsorships for local and national businesses?
A:  Yes.  Thrill of the Hunt is accepting sponsorships for our public scavenger hunts, no matter if you’re located in the community or not.  We offer many options to best suit your advertising budget.  Thrill of the Hunt is always open to unique ideas and suggestions, so visit our Sponsorship page for ideas, contact us at Game@ThrillofHunt.com.  We love meeting new businesses and working together!

Private Scavenger Hunts

Q:  What is the age limitations for a scavenger hunt?
A:  Thrill of the Hunt will build a scavenge hunt for ages five years old to no limit.  Younger than five years becomes difficult for the young participants to understand, and to keep their attention, unless working with older children.  On the opposite end, Thrill of the Hunt has built scavenger hunts for senior care facilities, even those confined to a wheelchair.  Again, these work best when teaming up with partners.  Reach out to us with your specific request so we can better understand your particular concerns and needs.  We’re always happy to brainstorm a solution to bring the scavenger hunt to you!

Q:  Are all the scavenger hunts outside?
A:  No.  Thrill of the Hunt will work with your requirements.  No matter the limited space or the vast area, Thrill of the Hunt will build an interactive and challenging scavenger hunt for your event.  All scavenger hunts can be developed for indoor use, outdoor activity or a combination of both.  Thrill of the Hunt can also offer suggestions for last minute changes due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.  Contact us at Game@ThrillofHunt.com for your free quote.

Q:  What if I don’t have anyone to administer to the scavenger hunt.  Does Thrill of the Hunt offer administration?
A:  Yes.  Thrill of the Hunt always gives an option in the quote for scavenger hunt administration.  Allowing Thrill of the Hunt to administer to the scavenger hunt, places the game in our hands and allows you to sit back and relax.  All details from the set up, to the distribution of the packets and instructions, to the clean up of the scavenger hunt will be the responsibility of Thrill of the Hunt as part of administration.  We’ll also administer to the online challenges with respect to the scavenger hunt (if required).  Thrill of the Hunt will address and answer any concerns and questions throughout the game.

Q:  Does Thrill of the Hunt have to administer to my scavenger hunt?
A:  No.  When purchasing a scavenger hunt, Thrill of the Hunt can supply detailed directions, allowing someone in your party to administer the game.  Thrill of the Hunt will develop the scavenger hunt with your requirements and offer different options if desired.  Thrill of the Hunt can also be contacted with questions regarding the purchased custom scavenger hunt.

Q:  Can I reuse my purchased scavenger hunt for another occasion?
A:  Reach out to Thrill of the Hunt with your request.  All Thrill of the Hunt Scavenger Hunts are property of Thrill of the Hunt and The Piper Corporation and are not permitted to be resold or reused without purchasing permission and copyrights. If there are any questions or inquires, let us know.  Email us details to Game@ThrillScavengerHunt.com.  Thrill of the Hunt will assist with any scavenger hunt updates or material needed for the reused game.  Thrill of the Hunt will work within your budgetary concerns.
