Scavenger hunts have always been popular, and now scavenger hunts are being combined with something even more popular – food trucks!
Are you ready for the Food Truck Holiday Scavenger Hunt? Click through to see how it works, and how you can score a FREE or discounted ticket, courtesy of New York Street Food and iAdventure.com.
Holiday food comes in all shapes and sizes, but you’ll have to track these goodies down during the Food Truck Holiday Scavenger Hunt. The event is on Saturday, December 8th, and begins at 12pm.
Form your team, get ready to roam around the city to find clues, solve trivia about the city’s most popular food trucks, as well as NYC during the holidays.
Unlock clues across the city using a smartphone. Twitter, Facebook, and photos will be integrated using the official scavenger hunt app, ScanQuest. The hunt is based on a point system, so each clue and task you complete earns you points. The team with the greatest number of points at the end wins the grand prize.
A ticket package includes stationed appetizers and one drink during event registration, a Scavenger Hunt ticket, admission to a secret after-party to celebrate your performance, and one drink at the after-party.
Ticket packages are $50, but we have a promotional code that gives you a discount of 50% off. Use the code “streetfood” when purchasing tickets here, and they are only $25 for New York Street Food readers.
Due to the surprise element involved with the scavenger hunt, iAdventure cannot tell us which food trucks will be participating, but you can be sure they will be excellent.
Food and drinks are pay as you go, except for the 2 drinks included in each package and the appetizers during registration. Individual and team registration begins at 12pm at Sidebar, 118 East 15th St. The after-party and scoring will begin at 4pm. The after-party location will be disclosed at registration.
Since you’ve been good enough to read this through to the end, we also have 10 FREE tickets to give away to New York Street Food readers. Simply name your favorite food truck in the comments, and the 1st 10 (different) people to comment win one package each.
As always, have fun out there!
