FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is QuestIQ? How is it different from other scavenger hunts?
Our scavenger hunts are broken up into four types of challenges: creative challenges, where teams take pictures and videos of each other doing fun and creative things; I-Spy challenges, where teams stay alert and have to find specific items along their route; and neighborhood discovery challenges, where teams will have to search for answers to local trivia. In addition, there are a set of more complex, puzzle fillled super challenges at some interesting landmarks.
You will be provided with a series of maps, along with a list of puzzles and clues in order to work through the game. Answers are submitted via data-enabled cell phones on an app we provide. Only 1-2 participants per team need to have the app.
Customization works in one of two ways: location or content. We can either customize the specific content for your team, office, company, or theme, or we can build a scavenger hunt for a specific location of your choice!
The scavenger hunt does involve some walking. The average game has 1.5 – 2 miles. However, the game can be approached in any order and route and does not require any extreme physical exertion aside from walking.
Although we use an app for answer and photo submissions, we provide most clues via paper. We find that this makes it easier for multiple people to work together, and keeps your team more connected with each other rather than their cell phones.
We also offer a broad mix of challenge types, ranging from creative challenges to puzzles. Most scavenger hunts pick one or the other – we build our game for a more broad appeal.
Our event facilitator will be available throughout the activity to answer questions for you! We’ll provide you with a way to contact them even if you’re away from the home base.
Where does QuestIQ take place?
We have games built in many locations across the San Francisco Bay Area and New York Tri-State area. Please scroll up to the locations section of this page to see our most up to date list.
No! Our activity is completely self contained, and you will be provided with everything you need to be successful!
Depending on the location you choose, the starting and ending location varies! Each game has a designated home base. If you’re coming from nearby, we can also often start the game where you are, and send teams on their way from there. If you’re looking to add a post game happy hour, we can route teams there for the end of the game.
Absolutely! Ask our event coordinators about building a custom scavenger hunt for whichever location you choose!
Game lengths and agendas
The standard length of the activity is 2.5 hours long, from beginning and intro to the end of the recap. However, the game is flexible and we can often cater to itineraries lasting from 1 – 3 hours.
Our game recap is often the highlight of the day! Our game hosts will lead a lively presentation of the best pictures and videos collected by teams during the event, and announce the winners. Based on agenda and availability of a projector or TV, we’ll lead the recap in person 15-30 minutes after your event. If we can’t run it live, we’ll send it to you digitally after the event.
We’re open at all times and will work with you to find a date and time. There are no specific time slots or game times – we’ll schedule around your needs.
Our only recommendation is to end the game before the sun sets.
How QuestIQ works for any group size
The QuestIQ Scavenger Hunt can accommodate any size group! We’ve run single team games for 6 participants, and large groups nearing 1000.
Ideally, each team is comprised of between 5 and 7 members.. You can select your own teams before the game, or have us help randomize them on the spot.
Groups are given the same map, however the activity itself is non-linear. Groups are able to move at their own pace and form a game strategy and route in any way they see fit!
This activity is for anyone who would enjoy challenging their mind with puzzles, while still having an outdoor and active component.
Day Of Logistics
Please wear anything that you can comfortably move around in, as the majority of the activity you will be standing and walking!
All you need to bring is our signed waiver, and 1-2 participants with data-enabled cell phones per team.
As the scavenger hunts themselves take place in public areas, there will be no place to secure your items during the activity unless we start at your office or another provided location.
The scavenger hunt can be run either rain or shine! We will bring ponchos in the event of rain. If your team would rather not participate, let your event coordinator know beforehand. We offer a somewhat flexible rain policy, and can often offer a date change or replacement activity.
In addition to bragging rights over your colleagues, we are happy to distribute any prizes that you may provide. We do not provide prizes for winning.
All locations are accessible by foot.
The scavenger hunt does require extensive walking, standing, and ability to see visual clues.
