This is going to be awesome!
The Blackbeard Treasure Hunt said it will bury $1 million in cash in Pennsylvania, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Texas. To find it, you need a map, which you can buy for $49.99.
Each buried treasure chest will contain the cash, a location beacon, and a hidden camera. Once the chest is found, the winner will find a key taped to the side of the chest and a phone number to call.
On Nov. 28, The Blackbeard Treasure Hunt said it will follow and film some participants to be featured in a reality show, “The Hunt for Blackbeard’s Treasure.”
Those who purchase maps also will receive clues and riddles to help find the money. Participants must be at least 16 years old to enter. Maps will be provided digitally.
If nobody finds the treasure by a certain date, participants will receive more clues via email and text messages. Clues will be given every two weeks until the chest is found.
The company said searchers will need a shovel, flashlight and compass in addition to their cell phone.
