The Thrill of the Hunt

Leave it to Chelsea Piers to create an activity that gets participants moving, thinking, strategizing and having fun!

During the Chelsea Piers Scavenger Hunts, participants divide into teams that compete to decipher clues, find hidden treasures, and collect points to win – all while exploring the 28-acre sports and entertainment complex. These hunts are great private party activities as well as excellent team-building exercises.

The Scavenger Hunt consists of four parts:
•    The Question & Answer.  Team members decipher clues to answer questions.
•    I Spy.  Teams locate listed items throughout Chelsea Piers to receive the maximum amount of points.
•    Action Adventure.  The opportunity to take a team photo at each required location.
•    Activity Challenge.  A competition in either the Longest Drive contest on the Driving Range, or the Best of 10 Swings in the Batting Cages.

After being briefed on the rules and timing, each team receives a Scavenger Hung bag with their team name, a map of Chelsea Piers, and the equipment needed to complete the challenges.  They then take off to explore Chelsea Piers and strategize how to score the most points. Once the final team has returned to the starting point, the Hunt Leader reviews the answers, tallies the scores and announces the winners.  Party hosts can provide prizes that the Chelsea Piers Scavenger Hunt staff will distribute.  Reception options following the Hunt are also available.


Scavenger Hunt only options start at $79 per person.  Scavenger Hunt with Reception packages that include an Executive Buffet or a BBQ Buffet with a beer and wine bar begin at $105 per person.  For more information, and to reserve a date, please contact a Chelsea Piers Event Manager at 212.336.6777, or by email at
