As part of local plans to give families a summer of fun, from 29th July to the 4th of September, Wimborne BID has teamed up with High Street Safari to run a free story-trail in Wimborne. This innovative experience lets families choose what happens in the story and enables anyone with a smartphone to take part. Players will not only discover cute characters along the route, but they also get to see them burst to life in augmented reality and take selfies and record videos with them.
The idea behind the event is to encourage families to come into Wimborne with a free, exciting event that gets kids out of the house. Shopping parents will love being able to get the kids on board with and families looking for a relaxing day out can encourage kids to have a screen-time break, do some walking and get rewarded at the end.
The Mystery of the Secret Keys is located at ten stops around Wimborne to visit, positioned so that families can discover hidden parts of the town. Families will be guided on their trip by The Luminauts, an interstellar team of superheroes, on an adventure as they find special keys that release 10 gem-eating beasties in AR.
The trail takes about forty-five minutes to complete but can be completed in more than one visit. It’s completely free for families and groups to take part in and they win a free, digital fun pack at the end.
The trail works without the need for families to download or sign up to anything, and works on any smart device. While it has been designed so that there is no need to go inside the venues, some participating businesses are offering discounts and vouchers to come in while you visit.
The trail runs from 29th July to 4th September. To find out more about the trail, visit the website: www.highstreetsafari.com or to begin, visit: https://highstreetsafari.com/locations/summer-wimborne
