Explore Chicago’s History with eAtlas’ Scavenger Hunt Challenge


If you consider yourself a Chicago expert or love exploring the city, eAtlas has the perfect activity for you this weekend! Starting this Friday May 31 at 10 am CST and running through June 2 at 9 pm CST, eAtlas is hosting a Chicago scavenger hunt challenge with a history theme this year. The CHIstory challenge takes players all over the Loop and River North with the opportunity to score cash prizes!

How to Enter

To get started, download the eATLAS app and register as a user, making sure location and camera access are enabled. Search for “ScavHunt 2024 – CHIstory” and click join to play. In order to be apart of the challenge, you will need a team of between two and five players with a team name and a team leader. You can choose to either enroll as an individual or as a team on the app, but at least one person from each team must download the app and register for the hunt. 

How to Play

Once your team is ready to play head to the loop, but make sure not to start playing until you arrive because once you press start time will start ticking. If you are unsure of where to begin, there is a map feature on the eATLAS app that will give you a rough layout of the area. 

Hints will be provided through the app taking you to stops including businesses, parks, monuments and more. You must complete the clue or question at each stop in order to get credit. Stops and clues may entail answering questions, snapping a pic, or checking in at specific locations. 

The game is estimated to take between two and three hours to complete and is based on a point system with both wins and deductions. Make sure to read all the rules and regulations for this awesome challenge here.


The winning team will win $500 per player for a total of up to $2500 per team. The winner will be selected based on the team with the best time and most accurately completed challenges. Don’t fret if your team doesn’t win it all because there are four more opportunities to win big!

Additional prizes will be awarded to the Best ScavSquad Social Media Influencer, Best ScavSquad Gear Costumes, Best ScavSquad Team Spirit  and Best ScavSquad Name.

All of these awards come with a cash prize, so team up and head outside with eAtlas this weekend!
