There are so many people excited about getting out and enjoying a scavenger hunt. In fact, in just the last few weeks, our site viewership has doubled. Still, not everyone gets it. There was one particular message this week that caught me by surprise, so I’d like to take a second to answer the question: why create a scavenger hunt?
An Unexpected Query
There is a lot of activity with AweVenture on social media and our website. People share our posts and tag their friends wanting to enjoy a fun time together.
I was shocked the other day when I came across one particular comment. It wasn’t mean or negative. They just didn’t get it. They didn’t understand why someone would have a scavenger hunt.
So I’m going to take a second to answer that question. Why create a scavenger hunt? Here’s why.
A Thirst For Adventure
People are dying for adventure. They don’t want to do the same old thing day after day. They want something new. They want to be challenged.
In fact, when we put together our business plan and did our market research, we found that the drive for adventure-based interactions has gone through the roof. Escape rooms, scavenger hunts, and other similar activities have grown astronomically. There are so many options out there, who wouldn’t want to join in?
Most people settle for a movie or a restaurant when getting together. Why do that when you have a whole world at your fingertips and a crazy amount of options? After all, fall’s coming. it’s a great way to be ready.
So why create a scavenger hunt? It’s simple.
Why You Create a Scavenger Hunt
You create a scavenger hunt because it allows you to use your body and your brains at the same time. You have fun and spend time with friends. You get to go where you want to go and have a blast doing it.
It’s like turning on all the switches in your brain: activity, mental challenges, human connection, serotonin and other positive hormones release, and you create memories that last for longer than the next few hours.
A scavenger hunt is an awesome way to enjoy spending time with people and enjoying life.
