A Free, Family Halloween Adventure comes to Newry

On Saturday 29th October, families in Newry will be able to have a great day out with this
augmented reality story-trail called ‘Totally Spooking Out!’,
brought to you by Newry BID!

Newry BID has teamed up with High Street Safari to run a special, free trail in Newry. This innovative experience lets’ family choose what happens in the story as they go around, and enables anyone with a smartphone to take part.
Players not only hunt down Halloween masks along the route, like witches, mummies, and ghouls, but they can also try them on digitally and take selfies. At each stop players can then see the full characters from the masks, burst to life in augmented reality.

Totally Spooking Out! is located at ten stops around the city center of Newry. Families will be guided on their trip by The Luminauts, a team of superheroes, on an adventure as they find the spooky characters and enable you to see them in AR.

The trail takes about forty-five minutes to complete but can be completed in more than one visit. It’s completely free for families and groups to take part in and they win a free, digital fun pack at the end.
The trail works without the need for families to download or sign up to anything, and works on any smart device.

The ten locations:

Savers, Merchants Quay
Canal Court
Shelbourne (Bakery)
Around A Pound
Boyds Stores
Newry Bus Depot
The Quays
