Arkansas Delta Byways, one of the 12 Regional Tourist Associations recognized by Arkansas Tourism, has introduced two new interactive games – a trivia game and a Scenic Byways Challenge – aimed at educating visitors and residents about the historical region.
The games were created in conjunction with Eksplor Gaming. The company creates apps designed to create unique, competitive and fun experiences for visitors to travel- and tourism- themed towns, attractions and historical sites.
The trivia game features 14 questions with multiple choice answers that link to each of the attractions featured. There will be a quarterly prize drawing for those who play, with extra entries for those who complete the trivia game. The first quarterly prize drawing is August 1, 2021.
The Scenic Byway Challenge features the interpretive centers for Crowley’s Ridge Parkway and Great River Road, located throughout the 15-county Arkansas Delta Byways region. Players can choose between Crowley’s Ridge or the Great River Road and then visit the specific interpretive centers for that scenic byway. Those players who visit each of the byway’s interpretive centers (15 for the Great River Road and nine for Crowley’s Ridge Parkway) will be sent a special gift.
Both games will run through May 1, 2022. To play, visit www.DeltaByways.com/games. To learn more about the entire Arkansas Delta Byways region, visit www.DeltaByways.com. To create your own game for your community, attraction or historic site, log to www.eksplor.co.
