A Puzzle & Riddle Treasure Hunt Across Central PA

What is it?

A spooky scavenger hunt in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. Individuals and teams will compete to be the first place HalloWinner! Solve riddles, complete challenges, and explore our beautiful state - all while raising funds for local animal shelters and rescues! Proceeds benefit Petapalooza PA.

The 1st Place HalloWinner will receive a
2nd Place will receive
$150 CASH
3rd Place will receive



Participants will be given their first clue at 6 PM. They will need to solve a riddle/puzzle/task to figure out a clue that will lead them to where the next stop is located. At each stop throughout the hunt, participants will need to solve a riddle/puzzle/task until they reach the final location.

Cost & Swag

Each Team cost is $35​. You can compete alone or with up to three of your friends (4 people total). Each Team will receive (1) Halloween Hunt T-shirt as long as they are registered by October 25th. Additional shirts are available for order at $20/each up until October 25th.


The Halloween Hunt will start at 6pm and will take place all throughout Central PA. Once you leave the start point, all bets are off. Plan to possibly travel through Dauphin, Adams and Perry Counties...or maybe even more surrounding areas.


Every year, the Halloween Hunt will have a different theme. The riddles, puzzles, tasks, and clues will be based on the theme - as well as the details to figure out your next stop. This year’s theme is Animals. Participants who are costumed to fit the theme will receive bonuses.

After Party

Whether you become the HalloWinner or you come in dead last, we will party the night away! Music, door prizes, and celebrations for all festival goers from 9:00pm-10:30pm (but you can hang longer!) at TBD.
