Self-Guided Hunts

Shinteki is proud to offer several self-guided hunts using the ClueKeeper mobile app. Visit to download one of our hunts, and keep an eye out for a hunt in your city!

Hipster BINGO – San Francisco, CA
It’s time to play BINGO on the streets of San Francisco! Earn squares by solving clues (puzzles, scavenged info, and trivia) at locations in and around Mission Dolores Park. This family-friendly hunt should be played during daylight hours, and covers about a mile of walking. Or whatever.
Escape the Musée Mécanique – San Francisco, CA
Can you escape in time? EtMM is a virtual escape room played in the real world. Use ClueKeeper and the exhibits in the admission-free museum to solve puzzles and find out what’s really going on. Offered in both Regular and Expert versions!
Duckling Detour – Boston, MA
Follow Mrs. Mallard and her family as they explore the Boston Public Garden, the Charles River, and Beacon Hill in search of a new home. While this hunt was inspired by the award-winning children’s book Make Way for Ducklings, it’s not just for kids: the puzzles can be challenging!
Pirates vs. Fairies: A Downtown Disney Treasure Hunt – Anaheim, CA
Solve fun puzzles to reveal hidden treasures as you visit the Downtown Disney District in Anaheim. This scavenger hunt was recently updated to include fun new Augmented Reality features. It’s best for families with kids of ages 6 to 12, but also fun for teens and kids at heart! Theme park admission is not required.

Private Events

If you would prefer to experience the fun of Shinteki with your own private group, we will be happy to adapt one of our corporate packages or create a custom event just for you. We can offer helpful suggestions to get you started, but ultimately you’re in control: the location, duration, difficulty level, and mode of transportation can all be tailored to meet your needs. Want to plan an exciting birthday party or add an unforgettable adventure to your group outing? Just email us for a quote, and we can begin customizing your adventure. We have even created an event that culminated in a marriage proposal! (She said yes, by the way.)
