Do I have to know a lot about Goshen?
Nope! The point of this is to learn about Goshen and solve riddles / puzzles. It wouldn't hurt to familiarize yourself a little bit with Goshen but local knowledge will not help you solve the puzzles.
When does the treasure hunt start?
All treasure maps will be emailed out on Saturday May 29th at 1pm ET. Everyone will be starting at the same time.
What should I bring?
- Pencil and paper
- Fully charged cell phones
- A vehicle to drive around
- A team raring to go
How do I win a prize?
The first team to solve all of the puzzles will take home the largest prize. Every other team that solves the map before Monday May 31st at 7PM ET will be entered into a drawing for consolation prizes. Don't give up if someone wins before you finish! You can still walk away with a nice prize!
How do I submit my answers?
You will be emailed a link confirming your purchase. That link will give you access to our answer system. You will only gain access after the treasure hunt starts. The map will be split into two parts. After solving the first part you will be given one last clue. You will need to photograph a certain item and send us that photo. We will only accept final photos from the email address used to sign up. The treasure map will tell you where to send the photo. And you only get 1 final submission. It will be obvious when you have the correct answer and you should not guess.
What are the prizes?
The prizes are dependent on the number of teams that signup. The prizes get larger as more teams signup. And we offer more consolation prizes as more teams sign up. Share with friends to grow the prize pool!
|Teams||1st Place||Cons 1||Cons 2||Cons 3||Cons 4||Cons 5|
How far will I have to drive?
All clues and locations are within a 7 mile radius around the Goshen Court House. You may need to leave Goshen city limits, but it won't be by much.
Is there an exact starting location?
Nope. There are multiple riddles / clues / locations you must find. You can solve them in any order. You will want to be somewhere within Goshen when this starts but the exact location does not matter.
Who are you?
We are Mike and Sarah Haverstock. Mike is a software engineer, and Sarah is a bakery owner. She's The Cake Lady in Warsaw, Indiana. We were in the process of starting an escape room in Warsaw when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. We've shifted gears and are offering remote-based puzzles instead. The treasure hunts felt like a perfect option. We think now, more than ever, a little bit of fun could go a long way.
Do I have to do this alone?
Absolutely not! We hope you work in groups to find the treasure. You only need to buy one map for your entire group. That being said, you don't want your group to be too large! How many ways do you want to split that loot?
How long will this last?
We expect a first place winner either Saturday night or sometime during Sunday. If you aren't the first or don't want to be rushed that's ok! You have all weekend to solve the map in order to be entered into the drawing for consolation prizes. We are doing this over Memorial Day weekend to give everyone a little extra time to solve the map. The deadline to submit your answer is Monday at 7pm ET.
Can I get a hint?
At no time can you ask for a hint. We will not give out individual hints. If we feel like a hint is necessary we will be making it available on our Facebook page. So make sure to follow us to get notifications.
How do I sign up?
Entry can be purchased for $30+tax. Make sure to fill in your preferred email in the form. You will be emailed a confirmation link. This link will confirm your purchase before the treasure hunt starts. After the treasure hunt starts this same link will take you to download your map. Nobody will get access to the clues early. Everyone will get the map at the same time. We will be sending you a confirmation email after you purchase your map. Make sure you receive your confirmation email. If it does not arrive, check your spam folder.
Will I need to visit private property?
Absolutely not! If at any time you think you may need to visit private property that's a clear sign you are at the wrong place. All clues / locations are on public property. Make sure to abide by all ordinances for any public property you are on.
This is not a lottery. You are purchasing an adventure. In order to win a prize you must agree to take a picture and supply names of your group members.
