The long list of 100+ scavenger hunt clues
One day I was thinking about all of the scavenger hunts I’ve made and asking myself: What are truly the best clues? Which riddles are good enough to be tricky, yet not impossible. What kinds of clues work better for which age groups? I decided that I wanted to put a definitive list of 100 Scavenger Hunt Clues and treasure hunt riddles together which could cover a wide variety of scenarios, settings and age groups.
After doing some research on the internet I realised quickly that most websites related to scavenger hunts don’t talk about different kinds of clues. Or there are only a couple of truly good clues and the rest is filler. In other words: they are simply incomplete.
Here we’ve put together 100 great treasure hunt clues so that you’ll never have to worry about finding good clues for your next scavenger/treasure hunt. From this list, about half could be used for kids and the other half for adults. There is definitely some overlap, but that’s not a problem.
