Tourists Become Their Own Tour Guides With This Holiday Game App

straymain
Stuck showing out-of-towners around the city this holiday season? No need to take off work or schlep to F.A.O Schwartz with gaggles of crying kids. Instead, you can pay $12 dollars and treat your friends and relatives to an interactive guided experience that tops any typical, boring tour. Urban gaming company, Stray Boots, offers Holiday Hunt, a phone app that turns the stops on their U.E.S tour into a variety of playful activities (texting riddles, challenges, and photo opps) and along the way, gives tourists the must-know dish on each stop. The app keeps all the heavy-hitters in mind: The Plaza, The Rockefeller Center tree, Radio City Music Hall, and of course, all those shiny holiday windows, for a swoon-and-drool pit stop. Despite the cheese-factor associated with all that holiday touristy stuff, we kind of think this would be an amazing (albeit dorky) date activity, too! Just don't judge us if you find us doing Rockette kicks in front of Radio City.
Bonus: Because the team at Stray Boots wants you to be able to send your out-of-town friends out on the town feeling extra-festive this year, they're offering R29 readers a special discount. Just use the code REFINERY29 at checkout and get 10% off!
