WishTrip games Papago Park

WishTrip, a leading tourism experience management platform, has announced the release of some free interactive games through the WishTrip app. From February 28 2021, families visiting Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona, have been able to enjoy a fun and COVID-safe educational visit with a series of four games, combining technology and real in-park experiences.

Highlighting local history

The four games have been created to engage with different age groups. The park’s youngest visitors, aged 3 to 7, can learn about the Sonoran Desert in the ‘Desert Explorer’ game while older children, up to age 12, can find out more about famous leaders from Arizona in ‘Do you have what it takes to be a leader?’

Meanwhile, teenagers and young adults can take part in the ‘Double Butte Loop Challenge’ which takes them on a hike through the famous trail and entertains them with tasks and games along the journey. There is even an option for adults, in the form of a high-level photo trivia game. This challenges their knowledge of the state and the park, as well as of famous people from Arizona.

COVID-safe solution for attractions

Social distancing requirements are taken into account in all the games to keep visitors safe. Plus, the game trails that are designed for children and families are easily walkable, while the challenges keep everyone engaged.

“We wanted to give the people of Arizona something fun and meaningful to do while enjoying the spring weather,” says Bezalel Lenzizky, CEO of WishTrip. “With many families spending more time than usual at home over the past 10+ months due to the pandemic, the Papago Park game gives them a way to safely enjoy a fun and educational experience during a time where most learning and much leisure had taken place online.”

As attractions look for new, COVID-19 safe ways to keep guests entertained during the pandemic, installing interactive games like this, using WishTrip, could be an ideal solution.

Last month, WishTrip also announced the launch of its new location-based Dynamic Crowdfunding platform.
