Our Story

Ben proposing to Whitney   


Created in 2018, Triangle Treasure Hunt started with Co-Creators Ben and Whitney hunting through the winding Italian streets of Florence. After the hunt, Ben got down on one knee and ended the hunt with real treasure by putting a ring on Whitney’s finger. The engaged couple returned home to Raleigh, North Carolina and began designing treasure hunts to inspire people to explore together. Ben and Whitney have developed an Airbnb experience and work with many local businesses in the Triangle to host public and private group treasure hunts where teams of 2-4 people use their minds (and feet!) to solve puzzles, find clues, and crack codes to find and open the treasure chest while exploring some of the most unique places in the Triangle.
