Cultural Quayside Hunt
20 Feb 2012
Explore concealed streets, admire eclectic architecture and stop by tucked away taverns.
HiddenCity is a mobile game that transforms a city into a trail of clues. Bring your mobile phone, a map and be ready to discover your city. Each clue takes you to a hidden location, where you are challenged to look around to find the answer. Trails are an experience of around three hours with the goal being to complete all the clues and reach the final hidden cafe, pub or bar.
There's a break half way through the trail for refreshment.
Ideal for groups of two to four people, HiddenCity is a social way to discover - or re-discover - your city. You can also play the game as a competitive event by entering multiple teams, contending against each other to be the fastest to complete a trail. After the event, you’ll be able to log on to the HiddenCity website and compare your scores.
The Cultural Quayside trail will take you through Newcastle's scenic side.
Here’s a clue to get you warmed up: “On a street that’s a gate and opposes east, head to a point where you’re north of Central. Between an angry house and a mustering point you’ll find a statesman tall and proud. When did he get stood up?”
Starting location: Trail starts at the Slug and Lettuce, on the Quayside, Newcastle.
HiddenCity will be running the hunt right through till March 2012. You can take part anytime between 10.00am and 7.00pm and it will take roughly 2 – 3 hours. It costs £16.00 per team, to sign up click here.
