Saint Paul Scavenger Hunts, Presented by “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres
Saturday, Jan 27 @ 12:00 am - Sunday, Feb 4 @ 5:00 pm
As Boreas returns to establish his realm in our fair city, the Four Winds have once again blown across the land to bring challenges to the brave and hearty citizens who are bold enough to take them on. Race to be the first to finish one or try multiple ones for fun. Each admission is $20 per team per hunt with all funds going to the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. This year the hunts will be a little different as we will be running them through the Our Treasure Hunt app (a local creation!) The clues will have a specific order and you must solve one to get to the next one. But if you get stuck, you can wait a certain amount of time as a penalty and then the next clue will appear automatically so that you can get back on the trail!
This year each hunt will have a grand prize, but it will be awarded by drawing. You can earn entries in the drawing for each clue you solve. There are also bonus entries for being one of the top three finishers as well as just for finishing at all. And of course it takes just one entry to have a shot at winning, so keep plugging away until the end!
North Wind Hunt – This hunt is all about exploring the realm of Boreas as 30 clues will lead your team to visit 30 places across St. Paul, from the bright lights to the obscure corners.
West Wind Hunt – A hunt for the kids! Venture out to Highland Park where a set of 15 clues will guide parents to various points of interest around the park. Then set the kids loose to search for a hidden riddle that is meant for them to solve.
South Wind Hunt – Let the South wind keep you warm in a hunt you can do from the comfort of your own home! You’ll get 30 clues about various things in St. Paul that will lead you to a question about it, to which you will need to find the answer.
East Wind Hunt– Delve into the mysteries of the east with this most challenging hunt! You will get a series of 12 puzzles to solve, each of which will lead you to a keyword to solve the clue. Once you do, that will give you a clue to a St. Paul location where you will get your next puzzle.
· Entrance fee is per team and only one phone can be registered per team.
· There is a grand prize for each of the four hunts which will be awarded in a drawing. Teams will get entries into the drawing for each clue they have solved by 5pm Sunday, February 4th as well as additional entries if they have finished the entire hunt by then (as well as bonus entries for a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place finish).
· Teams may register for more than one of the hunts, but all hunts run concurrently.
· Teams will track their progress on the Our Treasure Hunt App.
