Preparation steps:

  • Start by choosing a specific area or theme for your treasure hunt. You can focus on historical sites, art, food, or anything else you both are interested in. Make or find clues that are related to the particular area/theme you chose. It could be cryptic hints or riddles that lead to the next point.
  • Make sure both of you have comfortable footwear and attire suited to roam around the city all day. Also, pack some light snacks and bottled water, as you might feel the need to recharge in between. Always keep a city map and public transport map handy as they are crucial for easy navigation. If you are creating your own game, print out the clues or load them on your mobile device.
  • As the date involves a lot of moving around, ensure that your partner has a decent level of physical fitness. In case they have accessibility requirements, plan your treasure hunt around suitable locations and transportation methods. This date idea requires planning in advance but the thrill and excitement you get is irreplaceable.

Some tips:

  • Even though the main focus is on the treasure hunt, don't rush or pressure yourselves to solve everything. The idea is to enjoy the day, explore Toronto and have an adventurous time together, not about winning or completing the game.
  • During the hunt, while you will be spending most of your time outdoors, you can also include a few indoor venues like museums or art galleries for a change of atmosphere. It can also serve as a little break from city noise and hustles.
  • Always keep the weather in mind. The treasure hunt is best suited for a day with clear skies. Access the feasibility of the treasure hunt locations and clues based on the weather conditions.
