Eventzee Exposure: Penn State Wellness Scavenger Race

In “Eventzee Exposure” we look at testimonials from happy clients who have hosted their own Scavenger Hunts. Our users’ experience is very important to us, so when things go off without a hitch we want to cheer about it. If you’d be interested in sharing your Eventzee experience please reach out to eventzee@munzee.com.

Event Host/Company: Penn State University (Harrisburg Campus)

Event Name: Wellness Scavenger Race

Event Breakdown:

Eventzee was used for a wellness event that emphasized fun and Penn State University history. The event was held on campus during common period, a 2-hour time frame when no classes are scheduled on Tues/Thurs. The clues and tasks were placed all throughout campus for students to complete within the set time frame.

Overall Experience:

“The feedback was very positive. All expressed interest in attending next year, as we want to make this an annual event. I believe mostly the app added fun to the process. Most students took it very seriously and were quite competitive. Hopefully it also helped increase awareness of our services and tips on maintaining/improving wellness.”

Clue Examples:

Photo Clues:

“Snap” the Rooster- Rooster Cogburn was a cowboy that used to drink too much and would “drunk ride” his horse home. Now he uses Uber, and is waiting for his ride in a very accessible area of Olmsted. Find Rooster and take your most creative “horse-riding” picture with him while he waits!

Hail To The Lion!- We Are!…all about the Lion. Head to the Lion Shrine and take your most creative and silly selfie or team pic to be shared at the end of the race.

Quiz Clues:

Beast Mode- Go to the Fitness room and compute the following math problem: Number of treadmills + number of stationary bikes – number of fire extinguishers + number of row machines = ?

Game Day- From billiards to Foosball, students can unwind AND lay some smack on their friends at the games available in the SEC. According to the U.S. Air Hockey Association, how many points does it take to win an air hockey match?

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee version 1.6 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. We’ve introduced a new photo clue feature and fixed a few bugs. Download the update today!

Features Include:

  • LIBRARY UPLOAD OPTION:
    Eventzee 1.6 features a new photo library upload option. You can now use photos you have taken in the past and upload them for certain photo scavenger hunt clues. This feature can be toggled on and off for each clue individually and is perfect for uploading screenshots of social media posts, throwback photos, etc.
  • LIMITLESS CLUE LENGTH (iOS):
    Previously iOS devices limited clues to a few lines of text, but now clue descriptions can be as long as you like.
  • PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FIX (Android Users):
    It was brought to our attention that Android devices were not receiving push notifications, so this issue has been resolved in the latest update.

The new Library Upload option is mostly for private clients, but our weekend photo scavenger hunt will see clues from time to time use the option. For example our #ThrowbackThursday clues will now be upload available. So instead of taking a photo of a computer screen, you can upload the photo straight from the app. It is still important for the integrity of the game though that photos are taken in real time, so this upload option will not be available for all clues.

Checkout the video below to see how it works:

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog.

Know Your Hunt- GPS

Scavenger hunts have always been a fun way to interact with others and support camaraderie, but we’ve moved past the limitations of pen and paper. Eventzee takes scavenger hunts to a whole new level by supporting worldwide events and new ways to interact with players. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.

While photo hunts are totally fun and encourage social interaction, QR Code scavenger hunts can be used in a number of educational ways. When hosting your own hunt you may choose to use QR clues, which can be converted into a quiz or a GPS clue as well. GPS clues are especially handy if your hunt is throughout a city or campus with distinct locations.

Topographical Tourists
Eventzee GPS Hunts are great for showcasing unique and unknown parts of your town or city. Whether it’s historically important locations or simply a map of local restaurants, adding GPS coordinates to a clue is a fun way to get players exploring the places around them. Each clue’s location also shows up on the Eventzee map so it’s perfect for tours of all sorts.

We’ve Got Spirit How About You?
It’s not easy to get around campus your freshman year, but an Eventzee GPS hunt can be a fun way to help educate new students about their surroundings. Map out financial buildings, sports complexes and more important locations for your campus. You can even attach quiz questions to each location to test new students knowledge about the history of each building.

Late Night Latitude
Planning a night out? Pub crawls are a great social activity that double as a way of exploring a city’s unique nightlife locations. Get a group together and schedule out your whole night with Eventzee. Check in at each bar with GPS clues, then include fun photo clues to make the night unforgettable.

Creating Your GPS Hunt
Setting up GPS clues is easy. When you’re first creating your hunt you simply make sure the hunt is “Geolocation Based.” From there you’ll just add clues like normal with a clue name and description.

To set the GPS coordinates for an individual clue you’ll click on the gear icon to access the clue’s settings. There you can either search for the location or add the exact coordinates yourself. Then whenever you’re ready, just place the QR codes at each location.
