Who needs a summer job when you can simply track down a trove of treasure?
Event production company ArsenalFX has put together a real-life treasure hunt called gold Rush for Montrealers this August, with plans to hide at least $80,000 somewhere within the city.
Gold Rush will incorporate a short film called “Who Shot The Boss” on their website, kicking off the clue-filled mystery that leads to their grand prize.
There are plans to host the hunt all throughout Canada, with separate events taking place in Ottawa, Edmonton, Montreal, Calgary, Toronto, and Vancouver, featuring a minimum win of $80,000 for each city — equalling out to around half a million dollars in loot overall.
The Montreal competition will start on August 17, with prepurchased treasure maps (containing clues about the location of the treasure) being released at 9 am day-of to participants.
A few clues have apparently already been released in Gold Rush’s promo video if you want to get a head start on the competition…
