Wright Brothers Memorial Scavenger Hunt Rules

Time flies, so act fast and be the first to find the treasure at the Wright Brothers Memorial. The entrance fee to the park is $7 per person and is not included in the cost of the treasure hunt.

During this treasure hunt, all the clues and answers can be found around the monument. You won’t need to come into contact with anybody, all locations will be outdoors, and on public property. If you encounter others please be respectful and stay 6 feet apart at all times. No answers require touching or lifting items. OBX Treasure Hunts are completed on your phone. You will not physically do any digging to find the answers. The 10 clues will be delivered by text, if at any point you get stuck just reply “hint”.

Using the internet to look up answers is considered cheating and takes away from the spirit of the game. The treasure hunt is timed and should take about an hour so make sure to have water and sunscreen. Please be aware of your surroundings and weather conditions. Now let’s get going!

About The Wright Brothers Memorial

The Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills was constructed to celebrate the monumental achievement of flight by Wilbur and Orville Wright in 1903. The groundbreaking self-taught engineers spent many years on the Outer Banks perfecting their aircraft, changing the way we travel.

The Wright Brothers Memorial is located at the exact spot where they became first in flight and is now a National Park. During your visit, be sure to check out the massive commemorative monument, reconstructed camp buildings, and the interactive visitors center full of information about the location’s history.
