“We'd an amazing weekend, the best we've ever had away.”
A fun and unusual present for anyone who enjoys city breaks, puzzles and exploring outdoors. Great for sharing and gives the recipient six months to decide where to go.
Whether you've reached a milestone in terms of age, are only prepared to admit to thirty something or forty something or have stopped counting altogether, we all still like to do something special for our birthday if we can.
For many that means a day or night out, for others a chance to get away from it all, and for some a surprise party.
X Marks The Spot™ provide fun treasure hunts for birthdays, however you celebrate.
If you want a day out and enjoy puzzles and exploring new places then CityExplorer® Mystery Tours could be for you. Each tour takes up to five people on a self-guided sightseeing mystery, and with 8 great locations in the UK and another 8 across Europe you're sure to find somewhere to enjoy your special day. Find out about CityExplorer® Mystery Tours.
If you want a day out with a little bit of friendly rivalry to add that extra edge then the ReadyCityGo® Challenge could be for you. Split into two or more teams and race against each other and the clock to crack the clues to unlock the code (and be the first back to get the birthday cake?).
Available in 40 locations across the UK and Europe. Find out more about the ReadyCityGo® Challenge.
Whether it's the official arrival of adulthood, the key of the door, the big 3-0, the age at which life begins or the passing of half a century, these 'big birthdays' often deserve something special.
If you're having a party and are looking for an original and decidedly different activity to entertain your guests then a MadeToMeasure® treasure hunt could be for you.
This one-off event is written especially for the person whose birthday it is, perhaps accompanied by photos of them through the years and clues relating to their life and interests. If you keep it quiet it's a fantastic surprise birthday party activity to really get the party started.
What's more the treasure hunt can take place anywhere you choose - so it can easily end up where the evening party is taking place and be of any duration or length to suit those taking part and to fit with your timings and any other plans.
There's even the option to get just the clues and run the treasure hunt yourself or to fully enjoy the birthday fun by leaving everything in the capable hands of X Marks The Spot. Read about MadeToMeasure® treasure hunts for birthdays or fill in the enquiry form on this page.
Instead of running a treasure hunt on the actual birthday, an alternative is to give one as a present.
This way, the person whose birthday it is can choose when and where to have the treasure hunt and who to invite. This gives them the opportunity to wait for better weather or combine the treasure hunt with something else they might be planning.
When you'd just prefer to get away quietly. CityExplorer® Mystery Tour
