Valentine’s Day Treasure Hunts in Downtown Raleigh!
A unique new Valentine’s Day themed activity comes to Downtown Raleigh this February that will challenge participant’s minds and feet to find and open a treasure chest.
The Downtown Raleigh Valentine’s Day Treasure Hunt is a 60-90-minute walking team scavenger hunt that features Valentine’s-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.
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 Saturday, February 12 and Sunday, February 13. The starting/ending location 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, Durham, 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.
