I was part of a team that actually found the prize. The hunt was exhilarating! I have hiked the trail where the prize was found at least 50 times, but never like this! I was thrilled to be out searching for the box, and I bounded up the trail WAY faster than I thought my legs could carry me! There were a handful of other teams already on site, and they were friendly and having fun. Even if our team hadn't found the prize, it still would have been an excellent outing. As an added bonus, the prize was on a seldom hiked but very beautiful trail. I am sure that most of the searchers had never been there before, and am equally sure that most searchers made plans to come back and enjoy the trail under less... exciting conditions. Eloros has come up with a fun and captivating way to get folks motivated to hit the trails. I hope they keep having these treasure hunts!
My girlfriend and I go hiking as often as we can and this was a great adventure/twist on our local trails. We were searching along Ash Canyon, way off from where the actual treasure was found, but stumbled upon a stray pitbull that actually started following us and searching along the trail. The dog didn’t have a collar, so after searching we took her into town and to a local vet where she was scanned for a chip....and sure enough she was chipped and her owner was called. Was quite the night searching for treasure and then helping an escaped dog reconnect with her owner. Ended in margaritas and Mexican food. Congrats to the winners. Will definitely do it again.
We had a blast! Our team got excited 2-3 days before the clue was released, texting each other about the area on the map and speculating on what we would be looking for. When the clue was released, we were lucky enough to have people on our team who knew the location and with more discussion through group texting, we deciphered almost the whole clue. We arrived before sunrise and used gps tracking to help with our searching. There were other people looking also, and that made it more exciting. We were lucky to find it. Anybody else could have found it, but it was our team this time. The prizes were great and well worth our effort. We are really hopeful that eloros comes back for another treasure hunt. We know it's probably going to be harder and take longer, but that will just extend the fun. Great job, Eloros!
Had an absolute blast with my buddies looking for this hidden treasure. In alignment with Eloros' mission, we got outside and enjoyed every second of it. We weren't swift enough to get to the treasure first, but it didn't matter as being outside was all that mattered.
Such a fun and exciting event!! I went out with my boyfriend and we spent time together enjoying the great outdoors in Las Vegas. While we didn’t “win we spent an excellent day together. Hats off to the creators of this event. When it comes back to Vegas, we are in. Thanks again!!
I signed up with two of my buddies and we had a great time trying to find the treasure. Just the process of going over the clues, debating there meaning, and trying to figure it out was super fun and collaborative. Our “solve” was way off and the prize was found before we made it out but we still made it out for a hike on Saturday and had a good time. I can’t wait for the next one!
We had a great time with friends figuring out the clues and searching for the treasure. I would love to see this as an annual event. I am so glad to see organized events that get people outside to enjoy our amazing weather and hiking trails here in Las Vegas.
Thank you so much for being a part of the weekend and bringing your wonderful energy to the experience! We are very much looking forward to coming back to Las Vegas to share and enjoy your world class outdoors with others. Truly an amazing area to explore. Happy Exploring, Patrick Team Eloros Web Guide
We really had an amazing time with the Eloros treasure hunt in Las Vegas! Can’t wait until they come back and put on another one!
Had a great time exploring new areas and trying to solve the poem/clues. Wish it was a little harder location or required more of a hike/sesrch. Would definitely do it again though! I'd recommend to anyone who is contemplating doing it. Hell, I'd travel to another location for it!
I loved the anticipation of getting the clue and the idea behind getting people out there. But before I had a chance to even search it was found. I would suggest instead of one large clue having a clue lead to another then to another to try to spread the process out.
Thank you for the feedback! This was our first event so we learned a lot from it. We very much intend to make the poem more difficult by working with local poets who know the terrain and "what is known" with the clues and hints. We also debated on the multiple finds concept and may try that in the future! Releasing parts of the poem at multiple stages is also something we may explore. Thank you for participating and we look forward to returning to Las Vegas with a well oiled treasure hunting machine in the future! Happy Exploring, Patrick Team Eloros Web Guide
