NORFOLK, Va. — A new pirate adventure for the family is waiting to be discovered in Norfolk.

The socially safe “The Pirates Treasure Hunt” will guide residents through the streets of Norfolk, encountering virtual pirates, collecting pieces of eight, and conquering numerous challenges… all in pursuit of discovering the buried booty.

All you need is a smartphone, a sense of adventure, and your inner Pirate!

The treasure hunt is scheduled for December 5 courtesy of event planning company Scavengee.

“Scavengee uses proprietary technology to layout a virtual ‘where is it’ board game across the city, and engages Swashbuckling Teams (comprised of two to six participants), to explore various sites where ‘virtual’ pirates test your knowledge, your powers of deduction, and your creativity before providing pieces of the treasure map,” said Scavengee Creator, Steve Tishman.

The Pirates Treasure Hunt takes between 2.5 and 3 hours to find the treasure and is designed for teams of 2-6 Old Salts & Scallywags (adults and teens).
