The Hunt Rules

What is "the Hunt"?

"The Hunt" is a haunted scavenger hunt through haunted locations in Eastern Nassau County and Suffolk County on Long Island.  It will begin on the 9th of October and run through our favorite spooky holiday All Hallows Eve. The best part of it,  you can start it anytime and finish anytime.  That's right... once you register for The Hunt,  you have any time of day and or night to proceed with the adventure.

Heres how it works:  We have chosen 11 very specifically haunted locations.  Once you register for The Hunt you will be given your first clue.  Your job is to listen to the video we provide and or story and find the location.  Sounds easy right?  Think again!  Once at the location, you must find the QR code hidden there.  That QR code gives you access to your next clue.  Each QR code found gives you 1 entry into our Grand Prize Lottery. You can do the entire hunt, or stop anytime you want.  The best part is you can also continue The Hunt anytime you want.   
What happens if I cant figure out a clue you might ask?  There will be a cheat button for those of you that need it...
Also, there is no location more than 20-25 minutes from the next.
