How to participate
Search for a chest of real treasure hidden in Utah County or Salt Lake County! Download the app by using the links above. If you haven’t already, create a user account. Once you’re logged in, you can click the button labeled “Quests” to find small scavenger hunts near you. These quests are cleverly crafted riddles that lead you to local points of interest such as buildings, businesses, or landmarks. After completing a quest you will earn a clue to the grand $50k chest! View your earned clues by click “Treasure Clues” on the main page of the app, then click “View Treasure Clues” in the top left.
How the treasure works
After completing a quest on the app, you will be rewarded with a clue to a grandiose treasure! In addition, as you journey on quests, you will be rewarded with coupons or offers to various merchants along the way. You can redeem the offers to gain “Pieces of Eight.” You can cash out your Pieces of Eight for secret treasure clues, prizes, games, or gift cards at our “Pirate Rendezvous”. The Rendezvous will happen about every other weekend at different locatons in Utah County and Salt Lake City starting May 1.
What to expect
You will travel to places in the real world and verify the locations using the GPS tracking on your phone. Once you think you are in the right spot, click “Dig for Treasure” on the app. If you are in the correct location, you will be rewarded and advanced to the next location. The quests vary from about 5-10 locations in length. Although the quests are GPS-based tracking, the $50,000 treasure chest is a physical object you will find in the real world. Happy hunting buccaneer!
