Mountain View's first Postmaster General, Jacob Shumway, has a secret that only recently was uncovered. He was a part of a smuggling ring and hid a portion of the treasure that he smuggled somewhere around what is now Castro Street. Can your team decipher his clues, solve his puzzles, and find his hidden treasure?
This is a charity fundraising scavenger hunt, and a portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Family Assistance Ministries, a nonprofit that provides food, shelter, bill assistance, and personalize care for over 13,000 children and adults to help them bridge the gap from homelessness to dependency to self-sufficiency.
Gameplay will involve:
Scavenger hunt puzzles and clues
A custom laser-etched jigsaw puzzle with a clue specifically for this game
One wildcard team members that each team can "steal" for bonus points
A mini-escape room game
Secret codes and clues that you'll have to figure out how to find and decode
Hidden actors around Downtown Mountain View that teams have to identify and interact with for clues
And much more!
Is your team smart enough, fast enough, and clever enough to find Mr. Shumway's treasure and beat all the other teams?
Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No, this scavenger hunt is open to all ages and is family friendly.
How many people are in a team? Can you match me up with teammates if I come alone?
Teams are anywhere between 2 and 8 players. We can definitely help form teams that morning if you want more teammates.
What should I bring into the event?
Bring a clipboard, writing utensil, your running shoes, and your thinking cap.
