The LOOP to Host ‘The Amazing Hunt: FTLBeach’ with Nearly $10,000 Worth of Prizes at Stake

Presented by City of Fort Lauderdale Beach Improvement District and Sponsored in Part by PayByPhone


Looking for a beach getaway? Ready your smart phones and smarter friends for a scavenger hunt! Come spend a fun day at the beach with friends, family, colleagues and co-workers, and work together to solve clues while exploring Fort Lauderdale Beach. Nearly $10,000 in prizes are up for grabs at The Amazing Hunt: FTLBeach. The hunt kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with an opening ceremony, and participants will have until 11:30 a.m. to solve the clues and complete tasks to score the most points.

The Amazing Hunt is a unique adventure where clever clues and riddles will lead teams around many of the beautiful sights, fun locations, and landmarks that Fort Lauderdale Beach has to offer. Teams are comprised of 2-4 people and will follow the same set of clues to solve riddles and discover answers. Teams are encouraged to dress in matching colors or themes to stand out from the crowd. There will also be an exciting twist or two along the way to earn big bonus points. Teams will need to be all together at each clue location to receive these bonus items. While the hunt is not a race, you must turn in your clues within the two-hour time limit, or teams will start losing points.

The teams to complete their tasks in the least amount of time will qualify for their share of nearly $10,000 in prizes, which include:

· Two-night stay at the W Fort Lauderdale ($3,100 value)
