“Nashville: The Game” offers new “Music Marvels” and “Downtown History Hike” self-guided tours of Music City
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
A new way to explore Music City is coming to town today with the launch of Stray Boots’ unique Nashville: The Game series of tours. A refreshing alternative to traditional tours that rush you through the highlights with dull commentary, Nashville: The Game uses mobile technology to immerse players in enjoyable and informative self-guided, interactive tours. The tours combine the fun of a scavenger hunt with the sights, history and insider knowledge of a top-notch tour.
Nashville: The Game is easy to play and works by text message, so customers can use virtually any US mobile phone. Players are guided with text messages that include riddles, puzzles, photo opportunities and trivia questions as they tour the points of interest along the route. Each response earns the urban explorer points, making it possible to compete between groups of friends, family members, or pre-assigned teams. And since Nashville: The Game is a completely self-guided experience, players can start whenever they want and set their own pace as they go.
Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete. See how it works with this video demonstration: http://youtu.be/SK_2YZPwxCk.
Nashville: The Game offers two meticulously researched tours designed to delight Nashvillians and tourists alike with intriguing facts and amusing activities. For locals looking for something different to do, it makes a great date, family outing, or just a day out on the town with friends. Nashville: The Game tours cover the major sights and attractions, but also include cool "insider" and off-the-beaten-path gems:
- Music Marvels Tour – “The ‘Note’orious & ‘Note’worthy” - You'll know why they call it "Music City" when you've visited highlights including the Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Walk of Fame, Famous Honkytonk Bars, Ernest Tubb Record Store and more.
- Downtown History Hike – “Get Your Andrew Jacks-On” - Enjoy a journey through downtown Nashville that's a little bit country and a little bit history.
