Brisbane City Romp-21 September 2008

Postby Troyk » Sun Jul 27, 2008 8:12 pm

Saw this on a an ad today, and thought it would be interesting

It costs $29 for adults, $15 kids and 5 ad under are free. Family ticket is $55.

According to the website

Think you know Brisbane…? Prove it!

Part treasure hunt..., part ‘Amazing Race’..., part puzzle...

Get ready to discover Australia’s most exciting new charity event, an event that everyone can be part of.

Here’s how to become a Romper:

Team up: Grab 2-6 people and form a team.

Choose your category: Family and Friends, Schools, University, Corporate

Make up a Team Name: Be creative! There'll be some special prizes for the most original.

Sign Up: Entries are strictly limited, so be quick!

Set up your Romper Home page: It's easy! Simply upload a photo of your team and some tidbits about yourselves to the Romp website and voila, you have your very own team Home page!

Start Times: We're flexible, you can choose your start time between 10am and 11.30am

Time Limit: Four hours. The pace is up to you and you can finish earlier if you want to.

Tool Kit: Bring your mobile phone, a sense of adventure and we'll give you a map and a clue sheet and an incredibly exciting day!

Prizes: You don't have to be the fastest or the smartest - just by entering you’re in with a chance of sharing in $100,000 of prizes!

Aim of Romp: While you're having a great day unlocking the mysteries of Brisbane, you'll be helping the Burnet Institute to unlock the mysteries of the world’s most serious infectious diseases and cancers.

The Game Plan:

-Arrive at Reddacliff Place (top of Queen Street Mall) and collect your team's Romp clue sheet
-You'll receive a text from Romp HQ with your team’s first compulsory checkpoint. Now you're off and Romping!
-Find your Checkpoint using your clue sheet and solve a Checkpoint Challenge. SMS in your answer to Romp HQ to get an instant response
-Crack the remaining clues and strategise your route around the city in search of other Checkpoints
-Solve the Checkpoint Challenges using your team’s collective brain power and build up your points score
-A lot of prizes will be given out randomly throughout the day– there’s $100,000 worth of prizes up for grabs so everyone has a chance of getting their hands on some great prizes!
-Kick back and enjoy the post-Romp festivities at Reddacliff Place– some great bands, food, entertainment and extra prizes
