Halloween Monster Villain Safari - October 2020

Join us on a Spooky Safari! October through to Halloween 2020. 

This October families in Wolverhampton can hunt down and bring ‘Monster Villains’ to life on their smartphones. 

Launching on Saturday 10th October, a free and creepy (but also extremely cute) family trail of monsters is going live in Wolverhampton City Centre to give families a socially distanced, contactless and fun activity to do throughout October. 

The trail to find the 10 ‘Monster Villains’ takes about 45 minutes to complete and is completely free for families to take part in. At around 1.5 miles or 3,500 steps, it should keep families fit and active too while providing a fun way to get back to the high streets and shopping centres. 

The Safari works by utilising contactless QR codes, without the need for families to download or sign up to anything. 10 vinyl window monsters, all specially created for this project have been placed around Wolverhampton City Centre for families to hunt down. There is no need to go inside the venues, but some participating businesses are offering extra incentives to come in while you visit.

A chance to win a £50 Gift Card. 

Tag Enjoy Wolverhampton in on your picture with one of the Monsters you have found to be in with a chance to win a £50 loaded Enjoy Wolverhampton Gift Card which you can spend in over 100 city centre shops, cafés, restaurants and businesses – a great start for Christmas shopping.
