Weymouth BID and Weymouth Town Council are providing a family fun Monster Hero Safari, a story-trail, to help spread joy, support the NHS and give families a safe reason to return into Weymouth town centre.
Launching on 15th July 2020, families and households in Weymouth will be invited to search the streets for 10 cute and colourful Monster Heroes. Using only smartphones, Safari allows you to learn each of the MonsterHero’s name, story, and superpowers. Once all 10 MonsterHeroes are found, a free e-book, that tells the story of their first team-up, will be unlocked. The Safari works by utilising contactless NFC technology and QR codes, without the need for players to download or sign up to anything, they simply need to tap or scan to play. The Safari aims to bring some sort of normality back to high streets and demonstrates an effective opportunity to entertain and excite shoppers, while ensuring the safety of the public.
Over 100 BIDs and councils across the UK are taking part in the MonsterHero Safari project, which has been sponsored by Wild in Art, with the aim of raising over £100k for NHS Charities Together. In times of great stress, this project aims to provide the local community with a memorable experience that will bring a smile to the community of Weymouth.
