Will You Marry Me? Proposals & Surprises Enliven Private Hunts

Watson Adventures Proposals and Surprises on HuntsSo you’ve got the ring ready to go, or the ultrasound you’re dying to show. But what now? Sure, you could go small—that’s not as fun as surprising your family and friends or your darling love with a surprising, unforgettable event!

On top of the roughly four billion possibilities for customizing private scavenger hunts, working in a marriage proposal or special announcement is easy and exciting. Or if the question has already popped and you’ve answered yes, say goodbye to single life with a Bride-and-Go-Seek bachelorette party hunt. Happy hunters have been doing it for years, and we’re here to help.

Sweet Surprises

Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt Wedding Proposal Soho

One excited beau sent his unsuspecting girlfriend on the Soho Chocolatey Scavenger Hunt. While she answered fun questions and nibbled on treats, he hid along the course route, ready to spring forth and take a knee. As you can see, it was a beautiful moment. (Photo courtesy of Majestic Creative)

Another hopeful fellow concluded a Secrets of Brooklyn Heights Scavenger Hunt with a waterfront proposal. The kicker? He had asked us to present his girlfriend with a Ring Pop (her favorite) at the end of the hunt. When she realized what was happening, he dropped to one knee and popped the question (with a real ring, of course).

Personalized Puzzles

watson-adventures-hunt-proposal-boxWhen it comes to customizing private hunts, your options are endless. Locations, questions, even puzzles can reflect personal trivia, important life events, and more. A favorite among hunters with an announcement is our puzzle box. It can contain anything of a certain size, from a poem to a Ring Pop to a cartoon otter saying “You otter marry me,” and we’ll make sure the proper person puzzles their way through it.

Or you can think outside the box. When a young expecting couple wanted to announce their pregnancy to their family and friends recently, they named their team “We’re Pregnant!” At the the end of the hunt, the hunt host announced theirs as the winning team…and looked in delight as the wife’s mother realized for the first time that she was going to be a grandmother.

Epic Adventures

Now when we say you can do almost anything, we mean it. In perhaps the most elaborate proposal this side of a viral video, the fiance-to-be asked us to create a wild custom scavenger hunt and convinced his girlfriend that it was all part of an audition for a reality game show. They hunted from the Museum of Natural History to Central Park to a rooftop party where all their family and friends awaited the couple—and the big question.

For the already-fiancee and her friends, a Bride-and-Go-Seek Hunt offers up a wild bachelorette party unlike any other. Or during wedding weekend, treat your guests to a diverting adventure while you prepare to embark on the adventure of marriage!
