12 Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt
Don’t let the cold get you down! Grab your Christmas jumpers and get into the spirit with our 12 Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt... 'But Wait! There’s MYRRH!' On game day you’ll be met by our festive host, who will set you on your way to discover the festive magic that London has to offer. So get ready to sit on Santa's lap, get your photos with Rudolph and spread some cheer in our Christmas scavenger hunt extravaganza!
When you arrive you will have the opportunity to choose either our classic central London scavenger hunt game, or our seasonal game. Alongside both of these games, you’ll find an additional miscellaneous list of seasonal challenges. So it’s up to you if you want to go all out for the time of year, or mix and match a little festivity with some classic scavenger hunt style fun.
Our classic central London scavenger hunt game finds teams following a route around some of London’s most iconic sites, while creatively interacting with various landmarks in order to complete tasks and challenges, which earn their teams points. If you complete enough tasks and challenges within the route, you’ll also unlock a set of bonus points.
In our 12 days of Christmas game, your team will need to complete a series of tasks related to the 12 days of Christmas song. The tasks get progressively more challenging; however, as a result they earn progressively more points. Balance that with enough Christmas miscellaneous tasks, and you’ll be in a serious position to get yourself on Santa's nice list. Our seasonal games have been designed so they balance evenly against our classic scavenger hunt, meaning any team can win!
If you’re feeling competitive some well planned tactics, and a careful balance between game sections goes a long way! If on the other hand you’re all about the silliness then forget the tactics, just strap on your best fancy dress and get ready to have some fun!
BucketRaces goal is for participants to discover new places, activities and hidden gems within London, while meeting like-minded people and competing in a fun and friendly environment.
What you need
All you need is a well-charged smartphone (more than one per team is advised), and comfy footwear. BucketRace will provide the rest.
Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty, location, and BucketRace classification (e.g. location, miscellaneous, or seasonal).
The location tasks score the least points; however, completing enough of them unlocks hefty bonus points. Miscellaneous tasks score more points, but they don’t offer any bonus incentive. So choose wisely!
It’s also worth noting that most of the BucketRace location tasks have been written in order of the quickest route. The exceptions are the final few tasks within each section, which have been chosen to fit the culture of each area and can be performed anywhere within that location. Any teams who arrive at the finish late will forfeit a cumulative 150 points every 5 minutes.
