Are you a foodie who loves competition? Applebee’s Detroit and Visit Detroit are hosting a road-rally scavenger hunt to welcome our restaurant to the neighborhood! Register between now and November 5 to secure your spot.

Assemble your teams of up to 4 people and join in on the fun on Sunday, November 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., starting at the new Applebee’s Detroit, located at 2111 W. Eight Mile Rd., Detroit.

Participants should arrive at the Applebee’s Detroit location by 9:30 a.m. There will be a short welcome, and Applebee’s swag will be available.

At 10 a.m. sharp, the clue for the first location will go live on the Applebee’s Detroit and Visit Detroit Facebook pages. Please note: To participate, at least one team member must have a smartphone or laptop with WiFi connection to access the clues on the Facebook pages. 

Clues will go live on the Applebee’s Detroit and Visit Detroit Facebook pages at 10 a.m. (1st clue), 11 a.m. (2nd clue) and noon (3rd clue). Once the clues go live on the Facebook pages, teams will have to (1) determine the correct location from the clue, (2) drive to the location and park and (3) do the following at each location:

  • Pick up a paper apple with the location’s name on it.
  • Take a photo at the location with a minimum of one of your team members in it and post it on Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #ApplebeesDetroit. Whoever posts the photo must have a public Instagram and/or Twitter account in order for the monitoring team to see the photo. 

The first two teams to arrive back at Applebee’s Detroit by 1:30 p.m. with one paper apple from each of the 3 locations (3 apples in total) and one photo posted on Twitter and/or Instagram with one team member at each of the 3 locations (3 photos in total), including the #ApplebeesDetroit hashtag, will receive the grand prizes.

The grand prize packages include:

  • One trophy per team
  • Detroit Pistons tickets and Pistons swag
  • Detroit Red Wings tickets
  • Detroit Tigers baseball caps
  • $100 in Applebee’s gift cards per winning team
  • Detroit Lions specialty sports drinking glass (one per winning team member)

Autographs from Detroit Lions alumni players, including Scott Conover, will be available after the scavenger hunt for all participants from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Applebee’s Detroit restaurant.

Participants are also welcome to stay at Applebee’s Detroit after the scavenger hunt to order food and drinks to replenish after all their hard work!
