Theatrical Scavenger Hunts London
BucketRace's Immersive Scavenger Hunts are points-based competitions, where teams compete against one another by completing a list of tasks and challenges. BucketRace is unique because its lists include a location section, which is built around the culture, theme, and distinctiveness of an area. You can read more about our locations here: Location Page.
These games are perfect for smaller more intimate groups. They include a theatrical, in character games master, based on the location you choose and the location is broken into smaller zones, which last 30 minutes each. After each zone, teams meet back up for head to head games and some entertainment, trivia and jokes from their host.
The list also includes the option for a bespoke section, which usually contains tasks and challenges designed around an individual or organisation as well as a miscellaneous section, which includes a selection of quirky, funny, and creative tasks and challenges.
The hunts are competitive and we can design them to be any length to fit your requirements. Our basic package includes a video screening of your day's activities, a reveal of the scores and trophies and prizes for the top 3 teams.

What you need
All you need is a well-charged smart phone (more than one per team is advised), comfy shoes and a smartphone. BucketRace will provide the rest!
Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty. 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 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 to the finish late will forfeit a cumulative 150 points every 5 minutes. Any team more than 15 minutes late will lose all their points!
Location tasks: are specific to regions of London. Examples include - Find a taxi serving coffee in Shoreditch, find the giant Dragon in Camden and build a human pyramid in Hyde Park.
