Know before you go

  • A ticket is required for each participant.
  • You will receive a weblink to open on your mobile browser. The screen layout works just like WhatsApp and is very easy to use. You don’t need to print or download anything.
  • The treasure hunt must be completed in daylight, as it’s impossible to find clues in the dark
  • The game time depends on how quickly you complete the hunt, with the average between 2-3½ hours. You will cover around 2½ miles and the route is step-free.
  • For larger groups, multiple games (to split the group) can be played 5 minutes apart.

Concerned about weather but the rain stopped & we were able to venture out on our treasure hunt. All info was given and explained thoroughly. We followed the guide lines and clues and had an enjoyable afternoon learning all about Chester. An enjoyable time was had by all and we recommend this hunt as a way to learn the history of this beautiful place of Chester.

Loved this! Booked with some friends thinking it would be a different way to explore Chester, it was so much fun. Such a good idea we will definitely be doing more in different locations. Just make sure your phones are fully charged as ours died with seconds to spare! However I think that added to our experience running round like we was on Challenge Anneka

What a hit! A humorous and informative city tour to pretty corners of the city, just really long and with just really tricky puzzles, and also pleasantly flexible: you can start and pause whenever you want. Only the treasure at the end is missing - maybe an agreement could be reached with the great local fudge production? Many thanks to the guys who came up with the treasure hunt!
