The Hunt: Mayday Edition by Experios
This fun activity was created by Experios to celebrate their latest online escape room, Mayday. Inspired by the game, you’ll have to hunt down one of three Mayday game characters. These include a pilot, a botanist, and a Venus flytrap plant.
This game will take you on quite the adventure, as you’ll have to search around Melbourne’s CBD and the surrounding suburbs. The hunt will take place over three rounds, and each round will go for one hour.
Check for special clues on the Facebook and Instagram pages of Experios. Then, race to find the characters before anyone else does.
In each round, the first person or team to find the character will win $5000. Meanwhile, dress up as anything Mayday-themed and post it on your socials for a chance to win $500. Another $500 will also be given if you post a picture of yourself in action during the hunt. This adds up to $16,000 ready to give away.
If the hunt inspires you to continue the fun online, all participants will also receive a discount, so that they can play Mayday online for $5 instead of $45.
There’s no limit to the amount of people in a team, but you have to be over 18 to join.
