For $7.95, guests can make their way around Universal Studios and visit locations on a map to receive an “X” stamp on their treasure map.

Once complete, guests will get the ultimate piece of Mardi Gras treasure to take home.

To get a map, guests can visit a participating gift shop location around Universal Studios. We found the best place to purchase a map was at the Universal Studios Store near the entrance gates.

Guests will visit 12 locations and spot skeletons in a number of Mardi Gras themed outfits fit for the occasion.

Once you spot the skeletons, simply ask a team member inside the gift shop to stamp your scavenger hunt map.

The event is a continuation of other fun scavenger hunts the resort has implemented since reopening after a months-long closure due to the pandemic. In the fall, the theme park offered a Scarecrow Stalk scavenger hunt and during the holidays there was a Christmas Tree Crawl.

Once a guest has received an “X” on all locations on the map, they will need to head to Silver Screen Collectables (Hello Kitty store) to collect their booty (treasure).

Universal gives guests a pirate-themed bead and another bead that sports a giant Mardi Gras mask.

The scavenger hunt can be done in one day, or can be a fun thing to spread out over Universal’s Mardi Gras season, which runs through March 28.
