Halloween Treasure Hunts Coming to Downtown Raleigh!
A unique new Halloween activity comes to Downtown Raleigh this October that will challenge participant’s minds and feet to find the Halloween King’s hidden treasure.
The Downtown Raleigh Halloween Treasure Hunt is a 60-90-minute walking team scavenger hunt that features Halloween-themed clues, puzzles, and prizes. Teams of 2-4 people will use their treasure map to explore downtown Raleigh on foot while searching for a variety of unique clues with the ultimate goal of opening the treasure chest.
Participants are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and special prizes will be given at each Halloween treasure hunt for the best costumes.
The treasure hunt is designed for ages 13 and up and provides a fun and challenging experience for everyone. Treasure hunt guides provide an initial briefing and are available throughout the hunt to provide clues to help teams along the way.
Hunts are offered on a number of weekend dates in October. The starting/ending location for the Halloween treasure hunt is outside the Raleigh Convention Center at the Sir Walter Raleigh statue. The treasure hunt takes place entirely outdoors in public spaces.
Triangle Treasure Hunt is a small local business founded in 2018 by Ben Strunk and Whitney Schoenfeld. They developed the business after doing a similar activity in Florence, Italy. Although they got lost wandering the winding Italian streets with little knowledge of the language, there was some real treasure at the end of the hunt when Ben got down on one knee.
After taking a break during the COVID pandemic, the business now offers treasure hunts in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, and Fuquay, with more locations on the way. Private group treasure hunts are also offered for corporate groups, team building, birthday parties, and other group events.
