To celebrate the release of the forthcoming third instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, Volvo have launched a treasure hunt giving you the chance to win buried treasure, $50,000’s worth of gold doubloons, and a brand new Volvo XC90 car too. Take up the pirate challenge by registering at Volvo today and start solving the clues to help you deduce where the treasure is buried.
During the treasure hunt, you will need to make a trip to your local Volvo car dealership to collect a special pirate decoder as this is required for the quest – we’re not sure if the pirate code is the same for everyone on unique to each decoder. The competition closes on the 30th May and the first person in the UK to solve all the clues and submit the correct location of the hidden treasure will be entered into a worldwide final challenge on June 2nd to win the car and the gold.
It’s not going to be easy as there are 22 puzzles to solve (although Volvo are happy for participants to discuss the competition and there are discussions ongoing already on Loquax’s Forums) and even if you win the UK part of the competition you must then pit your wits against other winners from the 22 other countries participating in the promotion. However, with such a huge prize on offer it might be worth taking time to search for that buried treasure.
Last summer, Volvo held a similar treasure hunt to find a buried Volvo XC90 V8 to tie in with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and according to the press release more than 100,000 participants from around the world joined in!
