Classic Scavenger Hunt

The Fat Big Quiz 2020.jpg


Where it all began… Our classic scavenger hunt series is our longest running, and widest spread game available within our catalogue. We have multiple locations around the globe to choose from. Each location has a carefully curated scavenger hunt route, which has been designed around the culture, community and vibe of the area. Compete in teams, or play solo, and see if you can knock the other teams off their positions on our leaderboards. We provide both self-service, franchise, public and private bookings, as well as bespoke options and tailor made games. If you’d like to understand more about our self-service or franchise games, please enquire through our website here: Enquiry Form. Alternatively, to learn more about our private and public bookings, read the additional information below.

How does it work?

Once you've enquired through our website you will receive a product brochure, which outlines our different games and packages. Then we will ask you to confirm your group size, location, event time and date, and the package you'd like to purchase. Once we've received that information we will send you an invoice/payment link to confirm your booking, as well as an event organiser checklist.

The event organiser checklist includes a link to our bespoke questionnaire. Once you've filled in our bespoke questionnaire, you will receive an instruction email with all the details about your game, as well as a draft copy of your bespoke game handouts.

Once you've signed-off on your game we send it for printing, and look forward to seeing you on game day.

On Game Day

We can meet at either a public meeting point located at the beginning of our game routes, or at a private venue such as a bar/pub or office space. Once the event begins we play an icebreaker game to divide players into teams, and then we present each team with your bespoke handouts. Teams will need to assign a team captain who will be required to sign-in through Google to access the game. Their phone will be responsible for submitting all your team's photos and videos as evidence that you've completed various tasks and challenges. Once the team captains have signed-in they will be required to complete a practice section. The practice section includes the task "Take a team selfie", and a text box to assign your team a name. We will award the best team name an extra 5 points.

Once the practice section has been submitted players will be familiar with the technology, and ready to start the game. Before we begin we will run through the rules, FAQ's and answer any questions. Then teams will have a set amount of time (defined by your before game day) to work out how they're going to earn the most points, and be crowned BucketRace champions.

When individual teams arrive at the designated finish line any additional services will be handed out to players. Such as medals and experience photos. Once all the teams have arrived a selection of tasks and challenges will be showcased to the group on either an iPad or big screen (depending on the finish location). Next we will hand out trophies for the most creative and funniest team. Finally we run backwards from the lowest scoring team to the highest scoring team, and hand out trophies for 3rd, 2nd and 1st place. Once the game has ended all the team captains will receive a follow up email with the scores, and all the tasks/challenges that have been submitted on the day.


We are currently only able to run our theatrical Scavenger hunts in London. To see a description of each location, route and character please visit our London locations page here: London locations page.


We offer themed events on specific dates such as, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween as well as seasonal variations, including Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. We also offer Indoor and Virtual Scavenger Hunts meaning we cover all bases. Moreover, we've developed technologies that allow us to curate and design hunts with bespoke themes, tasks and challenges for your group.


Our scavenger hunts have been created for real world and virtual platforms.

What you'll need

We advise having x1 smart devices per team.


1. Teams must stick together at all times.

2. Each photo should include the whole team; however, one member can be excluded if they’re taking the photo/video.

3. Tasks are divided into Miscellaneous, Bespoke and Location categories.

4. Location tasks are mutually exclusive. You cannot score tasks within multiple locations.

5. Tasks must be submitted before the end of BucketRace to be counted.

6. For late arrival to the finish, teams loose 150 points every 5 minutes.

7. Any team more than 15 minutes late will loose all their points.

8. Any teams caught cheating will be disqualified.

9. Teams with the most points at the end of BucketRace wins.


Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty, location and BucketRace classification (e.g. location, miscellaneous, bespoke or bonus). The location tasks score the least; however completing enough of them unlocks a hefty bonus. Miscellaneous tasks score more points, but they don’t offer any bonus incentive. So choose wisely! It’s 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. 

Task Examples 

Location: Find a taxi serving coffee in (Shoreditch) | Find the giant Dragon in (Camden) | Build a human pyramid in (Hyde Park) Miscellaneous: Serenade a stranger | Build a leaning tower of pizza | Share your last Rolo with a stranger Bespoke: Spell out your Company Name in large letters | Locate a notable alumni | Find the backronym of I.T. written down On The Day
