Fun Facts and Stats About Treasure Trails

Saturday 13th July is Embrace Your Geekness Day!

When it comes to writing treasure hunts we're proud to say that we're one of the biggest geeks around!

So, let us share some fun facts and stats with you about Treasure Trails.

The 1st Treasure Trail was written in 2005 around the founder’s home town in Cornwall for a charity event. It never really started out as a business idea.

Our Trail adventures used to be written on scrolls! Like a true pirates quest.

Treasure Trails currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most number of participants on a UK treasure hunt.

Our Trails have been responsible for 5 wedding proposals (that we know of).

Kylie from our Customer Happiness Team is a real life treasure hunter!  She entered a treasure hunt in Cornwall for real gold and was victorious in The Quest for the Golden Goddess Mia.

We have our own Treasure Trails Tuck Shop at HQ. Of course, it's always filled with healthy food (and strangely the office basketball).

We're big fans of 'hot beverages' in the office and have 15 different types of teas and coffees in the kitchen cupboard. Anyone fancy a brew?

Football legend Gary Lineker has tried his hand at solving our sneaky clues!

There used to be a basketball net in the office but it's now been replaced with a table tennis net over the boardroom table.

Over 2 million Trailers have enjoyed a Treasure Trails adventure. Wow! You guys must really love what we do - thank you!

And finally...


There's a fancy dress box in our storeroom and we're not averse to looking silly if it means we sell more Trails.
