Release the cheeky Christmas Imps on the fun augmented reality trail in Cleethorpes

11:47 am, Wednesday, 30th November 2022 - 4 months ago


Discover North East Lincolnshire has teamed up with High Street Safari to run a festive adventure in the ‘Hunt for the Lost Toys’ trail in Cleethorpes town centre from Thursday 1 to Saturday 31 December.

Take a break from the Christmas shopping as you are guided by The Luminauts, a team of superheroes who are celebrating their first Christmas on Earth.

The trail is totally free to take part in – all you need is a smartphone with a QR reader installed to take part.

Here’s the story: Unfortunately, something strange is going on with a set of 10 presents that have gone missing. The team is asking young recruits to track down the presents, answer cheeky riddles and release the Christmas imps from inside.

To hunt down the missing presents players will need to scan QR codes in the windows of ten locations around the town using their smart devices. Players can make story choices in a choose-your-adventure style at each stop.

Scanning the code releases the cheeky Christmas Imps who will burst to life in augmented reality on their smart device.

Once all ten have been found, players can download a free digital fun pack. 

The trail takes less than an hour to complete but can be completed in more than one visit.

The trail has been designed so there is no need to go inside the venues.  Some venues may be offering discounts or vouchers to those taking part.

The trail will run until Saturday 31 December and is available to play during usual shopping opening hours, but please note, many venues are closed Sundays and Mondays and over the Christmas bank holidays.
