MANHATTAN (PIX11) — Hidden Cash is back and better than ever!

The scavenger game run by California real estate investor Jason Buzi and his philanthropic friends got creative and hid dozens of Pez dispensers filled with cash at the beaches in Coney Island.

A special Superman Pez dispenser contained a voucher for two round-trip plane tickets to anywhere in the U.S.
