What You'll Get
Just as X marks the spot for buried treasure, Y marks the place where question marks hibernate for the winter. Unearth hidden riches with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a downtown Chinatown treasure hunt from Treasure Hunts Hawaii (a $40 value). Groupons are redeemable only on Sunday, February 19; Sunday, February 26, or Sunday, March 4. Treasure hunters must be 21 or older. The hunts begin at 3 p.m.
Treasure Hunts Hawaii plots large-scale quests tailored to school groups, companies, and private groups that whisk participants into often-unexplored areas of the city, and challenging them mentally and physically through puzzles, trivia, and scavenger hunts. After congregating on the corner of Bishop and King Streets, guests assemble into randomly selected teams before commencing their two-hour journey.
Each brigade swiftly navigates through downtown Chinatown by amassing and deciphering clues supplied in myriad forms, such as custom crossword puzzles, 1-800 numbers, and letters from Professor Plum. Squads can accrue bonus points by correctly answering trivia questions along their voyage and collecting a variety of scavenger items such as celebrity autographs. After all players cross the finish line, Treasure Hunts Hawaii honors their achievements with an awards ceremony in which the winning team receives a hug from a Sherlock Holmes impersonator.
