Let Houston’s rich history of arts and sciences inform and inspire your conference event, team building exercise, or social media campaign by adding a custom scavenger hunt. Our innovative platform lets you integrate important goals, geographical markers, or fun challenges into a scavenger hunt for an afternoon or a week. No matter the time restrains or budget, our custom apps or do-it-yourself scavenger hunts are the perfect way to engage your audience.
Send teams out to complete a list of challenges using their mobile phones.
How many cities have fantastic rodeo events and the greatest space program in the world? Just one, and it’s waiting to be explored by your discovery tour, social media campaign, or team building exercise. Set up a custom scavenger hunt and get moving.
Challenges range from interacting with local attractions, to solving brain teasers and trivia, and even reproducing popular memes. Challenges are customized to the area but can also be made to reflect your groups values.
Finishing your list is done with your mobile phone. Rather than physically take something, you capture it with your camera or keypad.
Have your teams solve riddles, or ask and be granted hints in exchange for penalties.
Take in the Mahatma Gandhi District or Old Market Square in a way that promotes your goals and brings people together in friendly competition. Social Scavenger is the best way to explore the city, whether you’re just visiting or a Houston-born.
As an organizer, you may choose whether or not grant prizes to the winner overall or winners of different categories.
Players can be asked to submit photos, videos, scan QR codes, type in free form answers, select from a multiple choice list, or type in the right answer to a trivia question.
Players can share photos, videos, animated gifs and even audio recordings that they create during the scavenger hunt.

We have a great set of scavenger hunts and challenges ready to go. Customizing games can be done by our team, or we can simply show you how to DIY. You will have full access to view or test out your game in advance if you want to review anything.
Games can be set to run themselves and end at the location of choice. Instructions are provided in advance and inside the app. Alternatively, engage us for live scoring, judging, actors or activity stations.

Teams will have 2 hours to earn as many points as possible. Challenges are all around you so each team picks their own path. All the tech needed is in the app. Earn extra points by being extra awesome.
Leaderboards keep teams updated on the action. But when the clock runs out - who won? We can turn the leaderboard OFF with 15 minutes left in the game and then coordinate the award ceremony with you from ‘best of’ to creative winners. Or simply let the leaderboard do the talking!
For teams and groups that are in different cities, we offer an experience tailored towards parallel play.
Team building is a critical element of growing a great company and retaining the best people. Companies like ADP leverage Social Scavenger’s mobile platform to create unique team building activities.

At your activity, the highlight reel is always a hand-crafted hit and goes very well with an award ceremony or as a fun memento.
Add a team of videographers to tail around your participants. The mix of videos from the players with those from the crew makes for a great experience.

Find our hosts at a series of stations and discover what challenge awaits your team.

After years of delivering incredible scavenger hunts to people all over the world, we've figured out how to provide memorable experiences to our customers.
Scavenger hunts are different from our other games in a few important ways. Scavenger hunts are party games in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items or challenges, which the participants then seek to gather or complete. Usually participants work in small teams, although individuals can compete against each other too. The goal is to be the first to complete the list or to complete the most items on that list. Alternatively, it may be to amass the most points while completing the list.
Social Scavenger is different from competitors today in a few major ways. We've been doing this for nearly ten years, and have built the business in a way such that our customers are #1. This allows us to serve you with complete focus. We're also special in that we layer our incredible software product with an equally impressive services group. We dream with you, and are open to integrating special requests into our products. Every month we do events from $500 to $50,000 and up, so we're experts at delivering the best possible outcomes on any budget. We employ game makers, designers, developers, judges, actors, moderators, video editors - all so you don't have to.
DIY corporate games start as low as $300 for up to 50 people (10 teams). Pricing is be based on the number of teams, duration of activity and any custom services or features you may want added to your program. We just need to learn a little bit more to give you a quote and get you started.
