Crownpoint Shopping Centre Is Getting A Virtual Reality Christmas Treasure Hunt Game

Fun for all the family...


Christmas shopping this year looks set to be a hell of a lot more fun than usual. 

Shoppers at the Crownpoint Centre in Denton will now have the chance to experience virtual reality in the form of a free treasure hunt game called 'Freezy's Christmas Adventure'. 

Comparable to the Pokemon Go craze which took the world by storm this summer, the augmented reality game will require users to download a simple app to a smartphone or tablet. 

They will then be transported to a magical winter wonderland and asked to help friendly snowman, Freezy, and his friends overcome obstacles and find presents hidden around Crownpoint. 

With great prizes on offer such as iPad Minis and a host of this year’s most popular Christmas toys, it certainly seems worth getting involved. 

Speaking about the new virtual reality adventure, Colin Gilligan, Regional Centre Manager at Crownpoint, said:

“We love this time of year - there’s always a brilliant atmosphere amongst our shoppers and retail staff as everyone gears up for Christmas.

“We’re really excited to bring this new technology to Crownpoint. It’s a fun, safe and memorable game that should help families to get into the festive spirit - and enhances and enlivens the experience for visitors!”

The game launched at Crownpoint this week and is free for all shoppers to download from Apple and Android app stores. Children must be accompanied by an adult when taking part. 

For those wanting to give the game a go, Crownpoint is located at junction 1A of the M67 and just 1 minute from junction 24. 

There are 800 parking spaces so no need to worry about not getting a spot. 

The centre is open from  9:00am to 8:00pm from Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 7:00pm on  Saturdays and 11:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday. 

Happy hunting, gang!
