(Uptown Shopping Centre)

What better way to welcome Spring than with a safe, interactive scavenger hunt for the whole family – with an epic grand prize as the cherry on top!

This Spring Break, pop by Uptown to join in on the hunt – a search for 5 scan spots to find around the property, and scan with your phone – no touch points, and plenty of physical distancing!

Running from March 15th to March 31st, you’ll have plenty of time to hunt for prizes like gift cards, and instant wins from some of the retailers at Uptown.

Plus, with a grand prize of 1 of 2 Nintendo Switches (worth up to $500 each!), you’ll want to challenge your bubble to a race to the proverbial finish line.

How it works

  • The Scavenger Hunt will consist of 5 QR scan spots around Uptown’s property
  • Head to Uptown’s website for how to find the first QR code
  • Players are encouraged to find all the spots for maximum prize entries.
  • From March 15th to March 31st, parents and children can find all 5 marked QR scan spots and scan the QR code using their mobile device to be entered to win the grand prize
  • After scanning, you’re automatically entered to win a variety of mini-instant prizes at random – Uptown Gift Cards and retailer instant wins as well as be entered to win the Grand Prize
  • The Grand Prize will be awarded April 1st – 1 of 2 Nintendo Switches! You’re automatically entered to win each time you scan the code, which means more chances.
  • There’s no booking required! The hunt begins on March 15th and entries can be done anytime of day (or night) for the duration of the 2 week period.
  • Keep your eye on prize! The Grand prize winners will be announced on Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Playing it safe

  • The Scavenger Hunt is meant to be played while you’re already visiting Uptown!
  • There’s a 2 week period to enter the contest using your own mobile device, and the contest is designed to be done outside with little to no touch points, at the leisure of the user.
  • Players who win an instant prize will have their prize voucher emailed to them so they can redeem in store. COVID-19 safety protocols are in place at each retailer location, and players are asked to wear a mask and follow store specific guidelines when entering to retrieve their prizes.
