Agenda & Activities

Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Our staff welcome the participants to the mall and get everyone ready for a great event. We then lead some fun warm-up activities that also randomly create small teams.

Team Up! (5-10 minutes) Teams take a few moments to create a name and slogan for their team, and build some team spirit and unity.

Event intro (5 minutes) Our fun and energetic staff give the group a quick tutorial on the app and any other event components to ensure a smooth start.

The Hunt (1-2 hours) Teams use interactive maps in the app and physical features within the mall to unlock a multitude of mall scavenger hunt activities. Challenges include:

  • Celebrity Encounters: Whenever teams find an Atlanta Challenge facilitator in the hunt area, they will take a group photo with a surprise celebrity!
  • Brand Awareness: Teams try to find and identify various logos of popular brands around the area. They’ll need to keep a sharp eye out.
  • Photo Fun: An essential part of any mall scavenger hunt, teams find the perfect location and strike their best pose in these fun photo challenges. Mannequin copy cats, window shopping, fashion faux-pas, optical illusions and more are everywhere to be found.
  • Brainteasers: Teams work on this collection of various mental challenges for extra points as they travel, which ensures that everyone has something to do that requires their unique strengths.
  • Mall-rat Trivia: Teams answer trivia questions about different brands, stores and other interesting hotspots within the hunt zone.
  • Viral Video: Creativity abounds in these projects. Teams complete the cat walk challenge, fashion critiques, and movie reenactments to name just a few.
  • Rendezvous Challenges: Our facilitators are tucked away in hidden corners of the mall, waiting to give teams some fashion-themed challenges.
