TOWER TO TOWER EXPLORACE 2014 - News

Tower 2 Tower Explorace 2014 certainly lived up to its tagline "Perlumbaan Mencabar"!

The participants had to endure a 10.5-hour, 480km journey, which took them to various places of interest and grueling tasks. Not for the faint-hearted, they had to perform several fear-factor challenges such as flying fox, abseiling, hunt in Gua Tempurung and of course, a hand-holding act of slithery nature.

The pictures below gave a glimpse what it was like.

More pictures and review to come soon!!!

THE FUN YOU MISSED  

TopGear Treasure Hunt 2014 a success?
You bet! Participants plunder Malacca for over RM80,000 worth of prizes.
 

Nearly a week before the TopGear Treasure Hunt 2014 kicked off, a briefing session was held for by event partner Timeout Solutions to lay the ground rules and competition details to the already eager participants. A good portion of the presentation was used to explain how the clues could be deciphered, and one example was all it took to make us breathe a sigh of relief for being on the organizing side of the fence.

HOW TO AUGMENT YOUR HUNT EXPERIENCE?

Extracted from THS Tulip newsletter (Oct - Dec Edition 2014)
How To Augment Your Hunt Experience?


FOR PARTICIPANTS regularly hunting during 1990’s, they were fairly familiar with cryptic posers, navigational tulips and hard copy of reference materials.


The need to have knowledge accessible at hand often led to the presence of books and files in the vehicle. And the practice has remained relatively unchanged during the turn of millennium.

However with the advent of mobile gadgets and the boom of internet surfing, the landscape of treasure hunting has significantly shifted.

Date: 2nd November 2014 (Sunday)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Extracted from THS Tulip newsletter (Jul-Sep Edition 2014)
THS Walk Hunt also made a comeback in 2014 to the Pearl of the Orient. However there was a twist this time!


During 2012 and 2013, the hunts have traditionally taken place in shopping malls. Whether the venues were Gurney Plaza, Queensbay Mall or 1st Avenue, these were indoor sites, where the hunters were cozily pampered in an air-conditioned enclosed environment, with no vehicle traffic to fret about.


Come this year, the hunts have now become open-air affairs, which presented a unique challenge on its own.

Hunters find 2014 hunt trickier
    
KUALA LUMPUR: PARTICIPANTS of the New Sunday Times Motor Hunt 2014 last Sunday remained bright-eyed and bushy-tailed throughout the hunting expedition even though the riddles and clues this year were trickier than in the last two years.
 
Among them, one stood out — literally — as she was eight months’ pregnant. Wirda Wina did not let that deter her from giving her all during the hunt.
 
The 31-year-old said this was her second consecutive year in the hunt and she decided to take part even though she was pregnant with her fourth child.
