A complete pirate themed adventure treasure hunt - all ready to be downloaded, printed and set up. This complete package includes five, ready to be set up adventure treasure hunt clues and puzzles - for five separate locations in your treasure hunt. (This item in included in our Pirate Party Adventures Downloads which includes three other pirate theme party downloads for only $19.95 - see our Download Mega Packs section of our store to find out more)
This hunt is not a bunch of random word searches and paper mazes..The whole adventure treasure hunt is bound together by a central story: Follow the trail of the missing survivors that were aboard the SS Dark Fortune when it sank into the ocean depths. Just fill in the locations specific to your playing area or city, make the needed copies and you are ready to go.
Already working on a treasure hunt of your own? No problem, these puzzles were cleverly designed to be inserted into a treasure hunt of your own, as well. Use just one or use all five. Think of each set of puzzle and clues as a boxcar to a train (the train being the treasure hunt you are planning) - connect them to each other as boxcars would on a train. You can use any number of them that you'd like and you can put them in any order you'd like, to ensure that you have the maximum amount of flexibility in your planning. They are the 'legos' of treasure hunt building!
Each puzzle is a mini activity making every stop along the way fun. At each stop the adventurers will need to search around the room/area looking for the needed clues to solve the puzzle. Once all of the clues are found, the puzzle can be solved and they'll be off again to another location on your hunt.
Five different pirate treasure hunt puzzles - in ready to copy format once your locations are written in One requiring logic - Help Logan find his notes and match the correct captains with their correct ships.

Instructions for setting up the treasure hunt.
BONUS PUZZLE!!!! - If you choose to use all five puzzles in your adventure hunt, you have the option to incoporate a sixth and final puzzle (also included!) which uses the answers to the other five to complete! A great way to end the hunt and to make sure that your participants successfully completed all the puzzles!
What do customers who have purchased this treasure hunt have to say about their order?
"Your treasure hunt was well worth the money it cost. I know how much time and effort goes into putting something like that together. It saved me loads of time. And.....your creative genius far surpassed my meager talents. Thank you." DD S.
"(Pirate Treasure Hunt) I liked them so much that I wanted to order the Ultimate Pirate Event today!" Karen C.
"The pirate treasure hunt was a huge success! I had been assigned the task of doing a treasure hunt at our family company picnic and was so happy and relieved to find your website with a ready-made treasure hunt! There is no way I could have come up with anything so detailed, interesting and fun. The instructions to set everything up were very thorough. I look forward to playing it again at a family function and probably using some of your other themed treasure hunts in the future. Thanks a lot, you were a life saver!" - Claudia G.
"My experience with Quest was terrific. The treasure hunt I purchased was a great hit with the 13 children that participated. It was interesting, difficult, but not too difficult, and a lot of fun...I know I will go through Quest again..." Cindi C.
"The pirate treasure hunt was great, The Halloween ideas were great, my teenagers loved the experience. Your book was full of great ideas. I wish I lived where you do so that I could go on some of your hunts!" Shirley S.
"I really enjoyed the pirate treasure hunt that I purchased in March...It was just what I was looking for; and from what I could find, you were the only on-line company that had exactly what I was seeking (a treasure hunt outline and lots of ideas). I used it for my husband's birthday...I couldn't have done it without you. The puzzles were just challenging enough that he needed help from peers, but didn't need me to intervene. It was so enjoyable, we plan to host a group pirate treasure hunt party next summer and lead several adult groups on their own pirate journey." Amie K.
These unique set of treasure hunt puzzles were created by treasure hunt designer Joe Dean, with over 20 years of professional adventure design experience behind him. The clever versatility built into the adventure treasure hunt allows it to be set up inside a home, on church grounds, over an entire baseball stadium, throughout an entire city...anywhere you'd like as long as each location on your treasure hunt is unique (no repeat locations for stops.) Their design also allows maximum flexibility in time duration. Would you like it to last 15 minutes? Would you like it to last three hours? You are able to make those decisions based on your available and desired time frame by either using more/less puzzles or hiding the clues to the puzzles in more challenging/easier places.
Recommended Ages - The entire family was thought of in the overall design of this treasure hunt puzzles package. Because there are multiple aspects to each puzzle (searching for physical clues, solving of the puzzle, etc.) multiple ages can enjoy themselves. The younger participants will have fun searching for the clues while the older participants can focus on solving the puzzle. The puzzles themselves are not overly challenging, once all the clues are found that is. Adults down to children age 10 (approx.) typically have no problem solving the puzzles. Ages 8-9 might need an adult handy to 'unstick' them should they get stuck at any part. Children younger than 8 should can participate as part of a team, being able to contribute as the team searches for the clues. (PLEASE NOTE: The age recommendations just offered are the culmination of offering these puzzles online for the past 10 years, but are still only estimates as each child's individual problem solving skills is different.)
NOTHING MORE NEEDS TO BE PURCHASED. Everything you need to facilitate the adventure treasure hunt is included in this download.
