It’s back! Scavenger Hunt 5.0 Returns in October

Scavenger Hunt Busan 5.0 returns again this October 17 for another day of hilarity and shenanigans across the city.

Back for a fifth year, Scavenger Hunt: Busan 5.0 returns to Eva’s Ticket in Kyungsung for an unforgettable day of laughs and the inevitable hangover.

What’s the hunt all about?

Busan is a cross-city picture and video scavenger hunt that will get you and your friends bonding with each other and several of the locals all over town, all day long. Creativity is key — the more accurate, unique and hilarious the photo, the better the points you will get. Location challenges at some local establishments around town will be included as well!

Again this year, they’re going full tech, so just make sure your team has enough charged smartphones to last you throughout the day!

Like last year, the Hunt will be starting and finishing at the lovely and gigantic Eva’s Ticket in KSU. The yearly kick-off flip-cup tourney will begin at 1 p.m. sharp on Saturday October 17th. If your team is called and wins your game, you receive an envelope and can start the game. If your team loses, you go back into the lottery.

At night at Eva’s Ticket, there will be live music to celebrate your crazy day with The Dudettes/Rob Chrisman and one more band yet to be determined.

As usual, and even more relevant this year being so close to Halloween, costumes are mandatory. Full-team themed costumes have been one of the contestants’ and judges’ favorite parts of the hunt, so don’t disappoint them this year! A very nice prize will be rewarded to the team with the best costumes.



You MUST have a team of 5 sorted before you sign up. Not 4, not 3!

Once you have your 5: ONE person from your team- write on this event wall. Please include your team name, then TAG all members of your team. If they don’t have facebook that’s fine just include their name.
The cost of the Hunt is 5,000won per person/ 25,000won per team, to be paid the day of the event

More information to follow re: food and drink specials, prizes (money this year!!! amount TBD), deadlines for teams etc. All you have to do now is get your team set up, on the wall and get thinking of costumes!!
