Save time and let us plan a memorable event for your group.
Wild Goose Chase is a scavenger hunt that uses a cutting-edge mobile platform to send competing teams on a digital hunt around your city. To participate, teams download a free mobile app on their iPhone or Android smartphones.
Once the activity is underway, teams will try to complete as many challenges as possible within the time limit. Each challenge is worth points, and can be completed by taking fun photos of people and places in the community. Since all the challenges are displayed simultaneously, teams can complete tasks in any order, and will need to strategize in order to earn the most points.
Wild Goose Chase can be modified for a variety of environments and situations. The activity can be played in a few hours, or over several days during a conference. We can provide custom challenges and tasks to match your location, theme, company, or objectives. All you need is a few smartphones and a group of willing participants!
Wild Goose Chase is suited to any location and group size. Teams can set their own pace as they run around and explore the city to complete the photo challenges. The event focuses on communication, problem solving, strategy, and a real need to be creative. It is a great way for individuals to work as a team and to get to know each other's strengths. The activity can take place over a few hours, or it can be played over several days. Wild Goose Chase is flexible and can be tailored to meet your needs.

"The entire day was perfectly executed. All our staff were able to show their strengths in completing the tasks which were challenging but very obtainable. It was a fantastic end to our summer and an even more fantastic way for our teachers to begin the school year as one cohesive group!"

"This was an extremely fun experience. Everything was very easy to manage - the smart phone app has been very well designed. The challenges were fun and pushed everyone to their limits. It was nice to have challenges that some introverted people were able to take part in as well as the outgoing people."
- Our Children’s Centre Society
"We had a great time and it was fun going around the city and finding/meeting new people. Very interactive! I liked how we could track the leading group and the app is easy to use!"
"In one word, FUN. All of the participants had a great time, and one of them told me that it was the best professional development they had done ever. We very deliberately broke up groups and had people work with colleagues they had not worked with before. One participant said it allowed her to make connections with colleagues that she had not been able to make before and it helped to bond staff members more. The smiles and laughter at the end of the day said it all."
- Lakewood Elementary
“The Express event only took one hour. It was a value-added benefit to our evening of dinner and theatre. All the people who participated enjoyed the event!”
