The Great Egg-scape

Enjoy some free family fun this Easter with a new “Great Egg-Scape” digital story trail launching across Horsham District’s high streets from 15 March, commissioned by Horsham District Council.

To join in the trails there is no need to register or download an app. Delivered by the geogaming platform High Street Safari, this egg-citing trail can be completed on a smartphone through their website: https://highstreetsafari.com/eggscape

Children are invited to visit businesses and venues in local high streets and help the Doggie Detectives solve the mystery. The Easter Bunny’s friends are missing from the factory, locked behind puzzling doors. Embark on a whimsical Augmented Reality (AR) journey, combining real world and computer-generated content, to find clues, crack codes, and reunite the Easter crew. Take selfies and make videos with the trail’s characters before downloading a prize e-book.

Commenting on the new Easter-themed trail, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for the Local Economy and Place Cllr Ruth Fletcher said:  “These interactive trails are a great free activity for families to enjoy this Easter. I hope many visitors and residents enjoy taking part and use the opportunity to pop into some of our wonderful local businesses and get some Easter treats whilst they are there.”

To get involved in the trail this Easter and to find out how to play, all you need to do is visit the High Street Safari website choose your location using the drop-down menu.

You will then be able to view the trail map detailing the 10 participating businesses or venues to visit where you can find the puzzle eggs and release the Easter Bunny’s friends by scanning the QR code in the windows.

The adventure doesn’t stop there. There are trails to enjoy at participating venues until 1 May 2024.
