The Great University
Adventure Challenge


A GREAT way to have fun on a university campus - a GREAT gift to give for the university student in your life!

Looking for some unique and creative fun on your local university campus? How about helping Interpol solve some ancient art theft crimes!

The Great University Adventure Challenge was designed by a professional treasure hunt adventure designer and is a great way to have fun while exploring your local university campus! There is NOTHING to set up! ALL the materials arrive via US postal service in a fun wrapped package - unwrap it while on campus and YOU’RE OFF! Because you don’t have to spend countless hours creating it, YOU get to enjoy it WITH your friends! does it work? In simplest terms, it’s an elaborate scavenger hunt mixed with a treasure hunt…on steroids. You begin with a list of EIGHT different missions to take on at the campus - you'll need to find specific things as well as complete fun tasks in order to successfully complete each mission. Each completed mission will earn you points toward an overall ranking...


(Each adventure challenge comes in it's respective university colors)


By completing a mission, you earn the right to open one of the eight different bonus envelopes. Inside each are clues to solve six different puzzles. You see, Interpol needs your help. Six different priceless artifacts have been stolen from museums all over the globe. The more missions you complete, the more you'll be able to help Interpol solve their cases...and helping you to rack up a LOT of bonus points in the process!!!

(Each adventure challenge comes in it's respective university colors)


How well can you use an old map of ancient Egypt to find track down the thieves who stole the golden statue of Ra? The facts will really get you mixed up when trying to find the lost tablet of Xerxes...and don't even get us started on the the bronze vessel of Qin Shi Huang!

How long does it last? As long as you’d like. Start when you like. Stop when you like. Give yourself a day to complete everything...or see how much you can do in a couple of hours. Order a few packages and challenge your friends to a friendly competition - highest score at the end wins! Also GREAT for academic department team building activities!

Please note - This is also not a ‘standard treasure hunt.’ By this we mean that this is NOT a linear activity. There is no particular starting and ending location. YOU get to choose where to go, what tasks to complete and in what order. This flexibility was intentionally built into the design so that you inclement weather or construction won't slow down the fun!
