Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us.  An event that occurs this time every year, celebrated by couples and dreaded by singles, generally speaking.  Thrill of the Hunt has ideas to enjoy the day, no matter your relationship status.

Valentine’s Day for singles?

Anyone can enjoy the holiday dedicated to love and romance!  Anyone!  More and more singles are getting involved in Valentine’s Day in other ways, besides a romantic dinner for two.

Like what? 

Host your own scavenger hunt, either around your neighborhood, city or throughout a social district.  What a better way to get out and have an adventure on Valentine’s Day, especially when you haven’t filled the relationship void, or even if you have.

Make stops at your favorite pub or restaurant.  Start at one location for a drink, have a clue taking your group to another location for an appetizer, add another clue taking the participants to dinner, and then another clue taking your scavenger hunt enthusiasts to dessert or an after diner drink.  Make sure you plan in advance and make reservations.  Include the wait staff by allowing them to supply the challenges and clues, be creative.  Have a clue taped to the bottom of a chair, a plate, or a drink.  Make sure you include the location of the next clue, outlined from the previous.  It’s okay to have the group work to uncover or decipher the clues, but make sure the difficulty matches the group and are within reason.  Capture the memories in video and photos and post online throughout the entire scavenger hunt.

Perhaps bar hopping and dinning out isn’t your thing, or you weren’t able to secure reservations.  No biggie, try a scavenger hunt with a different angle, with a pop culture or movie trivia twist.  This type of theme can be executed anywhere.  Incorporate your favorite romantic movies or songs into a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt.  Maybe have the participants recite scenes from those movies, list the actors, or behind the scenes facts.  Make sure to get these challenges on video!


Do you have a group of friends that are single, while others have significant others?  Scavenger hunts are perfect for a group consisting of couples and singles, young and old.

Give your Meet Up group or organization a Valentine’s Day adventure with a scavenger hunt.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant or maybe you’d like it to be.  The details are up to you.  Stick to the theme of love to bring the occasion to life.


Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family with the perfect family night activity, a scavenger hunt!

Thrill of the Hunt

If you don’t have time or even the desire to develop a scavenger hunt for you and your group of friends, try participating in a public scavenger hunt.  You don’t have to be involved in a relationship to have a good time.  Get a bunch of friends together, purchase your tickets, and spend the day uncovering clues, partaking in online challenges, or socializing with others of  like interests.

If you’re tired of trying the speed dating, the lock and key parties or any other type of activity dedicated to singles, try a Singles Scavenger Hunt.  Join other singles in your area to follow clues and partake in challenges, while uncovering your potential love interest.  These scavenger hunts are a low pressure way to really get to know someone, through an excuse of a scavenger hunt.

What if a scavenger hunt isn’t offered in your area?  Easy.  Contact Thrill of the Hunt and suggest a scavenger hunt.  We may bring the scavenger hunt to you.
