Description
The scavenger hunt with a chocolatey twist! Explore the hidden Easter eggs London has to offer, while competing against other teams. On top of our central London scavenger hunt, all our seasonal scavenger hunts involve an additional list of seasonal challenges, as well the option to play in a seasonal themed game.

When you arrive you will have the opportunity to choose either our classic central London scavenger hunt game, or our seasonal game. Alongside both of these games, you’ll find an additional miscellaneous list of seasonal challenges. So it’s up to you if you want to go all out for the time of year, or mix and match a little festivity with some classic scavenger hunt style fun.

Our classic central London scavenger hunt game, finds teams following a route around some of London’s most iconic sites, while interacting with various landmarks in order to complete tasks and challenges, to earn their team points. If you complete enough tasks and challenges within the route, you’ll also earn your team bonus points.

The Easter game will see your team working out clues to find landmarks around London. When you reach that landmark you must complete a challenge involving what you’ve found. Once your challenge has been submitted, you will receive another clue via email and text message. If you complete enough challenges in series you will unlock hefty bonus points! Our seasonal games have been designed so they balance evenly against our classic scavenger hunt, meaning any team can win!
Both routes come with the same set of miscellaneous tasks created for the season. These miscellaneous tasks don’t come with any bonus points, but they’re stand alone points value is a lot higher!

If you’re feeling competitive, some well planned tactics, and a careful balance between game sections goes a long way! If on the other hand you’re all about the silliness, then forget the tactics, just strap on your best fancy dress and get ready to have some fun!

BucketRaces goal is for participants to discover new places, activities and hidden gems within London, while meeting like-minded people and competing in a fun and friendly environment.

What you need
All you need is a well-charged smartphone (more than one per team is advised), and comfy footwear. BucketRace will provide the rest.

Scoring
Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty, location, and BucketRace classification (e.g. location, miscellaneous, or seasonal).

The location tasks score the least points; however, completing enough of them unlocks hefty bonus points. Miscellaneous tasks score more points, but they don’t offer any bonus incentive. So choose wisely!

It’s also worth noting that most of the BucketRace location tasks have been written in order of the quickest route. The exceptions are the final few tasks within each section, which have been chosen to fit the culture of each area and can be performed anywhere within that location. Any teams who arrive at the finish late will forfeit a cumulative 50 points every 5 minutes.

Tasks Examples
Central London: Central London: Read out Shakespeare in front of Shakespeare | Take a perspective photo of Big Ben | Photobomb a selfie in front of Buckingham Palace | Perform a next to Hyde Park's bandstand.

Easter Miscellaneous: Cluck like a chicken in public | Find a giant Easter egg | Have a Space Hopper Race | Have an egg and spoon race through town
