FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WORLD’S LARGEST SCAVENGER HUNT TO TAKE PLACE IN OTTAWA
Ottawa to make history this September 10th, 2017, with an attempt to break the
Guinness Record for the World’s Largest Scavenger Hunt. As an initiative for Ignite 150,
the creators of Escape Manor have produced a Canadian-themed, epic daytime
adventure for the ages. In honour of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebration, thousands
of costumed participants will scatter from City Hall scouring the city to solve puzzles, find
items, snap photos, attempt augmented reality, answer trivia, post on social media, and
have a great time.
Teaming up with Ottawa 2017, Escape Manor has designed an intriguing challenge
entrenched in Canadian history and current events. Mayor Jim Watson and Ottawa 2017
Executive Director, Guy Laflamme will be on hand to kick off the event open to
participants 14 and over. The hunt will commence at Marion Dewar Plaza at 9 am and
culminate with a party style reception and awards ceremony, outside City Hall, that
afternoon. Food trucks, a DJ, Beau’s beer, and local dignitaries will be onsite to ensure a
stellar celebration closes the day.
Teams of four are encouraged to dress-up in their finest Canadian themed gear (awards
for best team and individual costumes) and should wear comfortable footwear, as the
hunt will have them scan 7 unique Ottawa neighbourhoods, visit dozens of iconic
landmarks and sites, and span up to a 3 km radius from City Hall.
