Guy Fawkes Bonfire Scavenger Hunt
Remember, remember the 5th of November this Guy Fawkes day, by running around London, and foiling your own gunpowder plot while trying to earn the most points to become the most explosive team on the block.
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 Guy Fawkes seasonal game, your team will need to complete tasks and challenges, to unlock clues, which will in turn foil a modern day gunpowder plot. Completing enough tasks and challenges will result in your team obtaining explosive bonus points, as well as collecting a series of items that will allow you to put on your own makeshift fireworks display. 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.
