Winter Scavenger Hunt
Wrap up warm, and load up on coco, because it’s time to get creative, and be a little loco, in our Scavenger Hunt with a winter's tail twist. Uncover the secrets London has to offer, while warming up your engines, and competing against other teams. On top of our central London scavenger hunt, all our seasonal scavenger hunts involve an additional list of seasonal challenges, as well the option to play in a seasonal themed game.
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.
Our winter game is called the Tube Stop challenge, which involves crossing-off a list of Tube Stops signs, which map out the quickest route for our location task game. If you manage to collect all the tube signs on route, you will earn your team some additional husky bonus points! 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.
