Whether you’re looking for an indoor scavenger hunt for adults or a fun way to make a birthday party unique, these are the best clues out there! This adult scavenger hunt can be used for couples during a romantic celebration or a birthday party for a group of people. The editable scavenger hunt template allows you to add your own personalized treasure hunt clues. Perfect for an adult of any age who loves games, laughter, and fun!
The fun part about having an adult birthday treasure hunt is that it’s a great way to break the ice and dive right into the fun activities and creative birthday games for adults. Because sometimes, all celebrations need a little something to shake things up!
Who says that kids get to have all the fun? Scavenger hunts for adults are totally a thing – as they should be! The best part is that all the guests at the party will be running around, letting their “friendly competition” shine. Add a few drinks in your hand, set a time limit, and let everyone have a great time
acting a fool.
Alternatively, this adult scavenger hunt can also be used for two. Since extra clues are included, transition these scavenger hunt clues into a couples scavenger hunt with an optional scavenger hunt clue card that ends up in the…. bed!
While you can print off these his and her scavenger hunt cards and questions, there are editable scavenger hunt cards, as well, to add your own clues and ideas transitioning your clues into a themed celebration. This makes this simple printable scavenger hunt game a great option to use over and over again including for birthday parties, showers, romantic date nights, older kids’ birthdays, and more!
Even if you’re not interested in adding your own flair and spin, let the birthday scavenger hunt riddles included be the show’s star. The rhyming riddle clue cards are a little more complicated than the kid’s version but not too hard that nobody won’t be successful.
When should this adult scavenger hunt be used?
This fun adult scavenger hunt set includes four birthday scavenger hunt clues you can add to the hunt. While I’m suggesting that it be used for a scavenger hunt birthday party, you can literally use this at-home scavenger hunt for so much more than that.
This is where the fun starts! There is a scavenger hunt for him and a scavenger hunt for her with optional birthday clue cards. That means you can keep the birthday scavenger hunt for adult clue cards out of the hunt.
So think outside the box. What is a special occasion or reason you could use with a scavenger hunt with the adults in your life?

- Surprise Birthday Party

Scavenger Hunt Clues for Adults
These birthday treasure hunt clues around the house aren’t necessarily racy, they just happen to be harder riddles for adults to solve. In addition to being harder riddles about objects at home, there are a few riddles that mention drinks (implied adult beverages) and one optional couple’s treasure hunt clue that ends in bed. This clue can, of course, be left out and another clue can be replaced to finish the birthday treasure hunt.
These are a few example clue cards included in the adult scavenger hunt set.
This first clue kicks off the fun, which will last until we’re done. To make sure that you’re not last, look where your foot presses to go fast.
To find the next clue, you’ll have to think, you always go here when you need a drink.
Final clue – optional birthday clue
Happy birthday to you, I hope you have the best year. Now one last place for us to head, let’s get in the ____ (bed).
… and 21 more adult scavenger hunt clue cards pick the ones you want or use the editable scavenger hunt template to write your own personalized scavenger hunt clues.
How to write your own clues for adults
However, if you don’t like these clues you can create your own with the editable PDF document. Simply think of the place you want the clue to be found. For example, in the bed and find a word that could rhyme with bed. Let’s say red.
Then get creative and write your own romantic scavenger hunt clue.

If that isn’t for you, no worries! Use our twenty-four included rhyming riddles for adults.
Scavenger Hunt Prizes for Adults
One of my favorite parts of scavenger hunts is the bonding memories but of course the fun prizes. One of the best ways to make a scavenger hunt more interesting is to have small prizes. These fun gifts are can be used at the end of the scavenger hunt with the last final clue. However, if you have lots of small gifts, have them with each clue card! Before launching the scavenger hunt, be sure to decide on the prizes that the winner will get!

If you choose, you can edit the blank clue cards. Simply Open Adobe Acrobat (free version here) and type up your own clues or leave it as is with the existing fun clues. The editable cards do come with colorful designs and prints but can also be printed in black and white to save ink.
To begin your scavenger hunt, cut out the clue cards. Choose the clue cards you want to use.

With the last clue card, have a huge prize. Alternatively, you can have a small gift or party favor with each of the clue cards or with every other clue card.
