First look inside Sally's new Treasure Hunt: The Ride

June 30, 2023, 4:51 PM · There's a new treasure hunt awaiting visitors to California's historic Cannery Row.

Treasure Hunt: The Ride is now in soft open (aka "sea trials") in advance of its grand opening in mid-July. Created by Sally Dark Rides and Daniels Wood Land, Treasure Hunt: The Ride is a practical and media-based interactive adventure at 700 Cannery Row in Monterey. Here's a first look at the attraction, via Sally.

Sally Dark Rides' Creative Director Rich Hill introduced us to Treasure Hunt: The Ride at the 2021 IAAPA Expo.

Tickets are available now, at $19.99-24.99 for adults, with discounts for children and seniors, on the the Treasure Hunt website. A $5 upcharge for a "power up token" turns your device from single-shot to rapid-fire, potentially boosting your score on the game. Admission includes a preshow, the "elevator ride" to the sea floor, and the interactive adventure. (I am sure that people will have things to say in the comments about stand-alone attractions and their prices.) I hope to get on this ride next month, so stay tuned for a review.

>>I am sure that people will have things to say in the comments about stand-alone attractions and their prices.

$20 for what they describe on their website as a four-minute ride? To put things in perspective, that's the equivalent of charging $300 an hour for an experience... not even Disney charges quite that much!

It's on Cannery Row. It'll do fine. It's just another cash grab amongst other cash grabs.

Looks cool. If I'm in the area, I might try it once... but I doubt you'll get a lot of return visits at that price point. It's interesting to me that they had enough space for this in what looks like a strip mall.
