Nope, they were actually RWS Facebook fans on our third FB Fans’ Day Out, and this time round it was for the world premiere of TRANSFORMERS The Ride. Their mission of the day? Complete a very unique ‘scan’venger hunt. What in the name of Cybertron is a ‘scan’venger hunt, you ask? Here’s a hint: take the term ‘scan’ in ‘scan’venger literally.
Imagine a scavenger hunt with a twist; each of the 10 checkpoints of the game had a QR code which, when scanned with a smartphone with a QR scanner, revealed the clue to the next checkpoint. For those of you who don’t know what a QR code looks like:
As enthusiastic as ever, our fans took to the challenge with great gusto. We’re pretty certain we’ve never seen so many people scurrying all over the resort before, and in record time as well (the first team managed to clear all 10 checkpoints in an impressive 25 minutes!) If you ask any of our 26 N.E.S.T. recruits, they’ll probably tell you that they’ve never sweat this much around RWS – ever.
But the rewards were sweet; after an afternoon of hunting, the top 3 teams won some enviable prizes (merchandise from the TRANSFORMERS Supply Vault), and all were treated to a ride on EVAC and a chance to attend the press conference with the one and only Michael Bay.
Here’s a look at what went down that day.
Here’s a recap of the action:
RWS Facebook Fans’ Day Out is a treat organized for active fans of RWS’ facebook page, to express our gratitude for all their support. Usually held in conjunction with a major event, a few ‘headhunted’ fans will get exclusive previews and goodies for being ardent supporters.
