The Lost Treasure of Mount Dora

The backstory of the Lost Treasure of Mount Dora…



























Follow the clues, find the treasure!

An app-based (Works on IPhone or Android) interactive treasure hunt contest to be held during Pirate Week in Mount Dora leading up to the Mount Dora Seafood Festival August 25th & 26th.

Simply stated, the objective of the game is to collect and solve clues that lead to the location of the treasure, hidden somewhere in Downtown Mount Dora within the defined boundaries of the contest area. The clues are discovered by visiting participating Mount Dora businesses, and participants must physically visit each merchant location in order to unlock the clue.  Value of prizes and booty is in excess of $1000 to the winner(s). No purchase necessary to play!

The treasure hunt uses the Mount Dora mobile app, which features exciting new technology from Apple that allows proximity based information delivery. Once registered as a participant, treasure hunters use the information gathered from the clues to search for the treasure location. Participants will receive one clue location per day, and all clue locations will remain visible in the app until the conclusion of the contest. The first person to piece together the clues and arrive at the secret location will receive a congratulatory alert on their mobile device, declaring them the winner and providing directions to claim their prize. It is possible to solve the mystery of the Lost Treasure of Mount Dora on Saturday but you will be at a disadvantage as others may have solved the clues each day and in advance.

Once the treasure has been found, all participants will receive a notification and invitation to attend the prize presentation, which will be on the main stage at the Mount Dora Seafood Festival on Saturday, August 25.
