In June 2022, the founders of the company The Real Treasure Hunt LLC decided to rid their boredom from the pandemic by launching The Incredible Hunt. The subjects of the one-of-a-kind modern-day treasure hunt are six treasure chests buried in different locations across the United States. According to the organizers, everyone who finds a chest will be rewarded with US$ 10,000.
“We were inspired by the treasure hunts of Forrest Fenn and Byron Preiss,” narrated the team at The Incredible Hunt. “We invite every one to exercise their mind, have fun, and possibly win loads of cash with this family-friendly activity!”
To participate, individuals begin by purchasing one of the company’s boxes containing clues that will lead to the chests locations. The specially designed boxes are available on the company’s website at $45 each. Next, all Treasure Hunters are invited to join a private community on Facebook where Hunters discuss solutions and share ideas with each other.
The team further explains that finding the chests is not a matter of luck but will require technical skills, creativity of thought, and determination. To date, none of the six chests have been found.
This real-life treasure Hunt is less than a month old and already 300 individuals have purchased a clue box and begun exploring. The team at The Incredible Hunt maintains a leaderboard where they rank the participants based on their progress.
