Things to do with the family in Plymouth – Monster Hero Safari

Children are being enlisted to help hunt for monsters in Plymouth. Keep the kids entertained in Plymouth this summer with a family fun safari. Hunt down the ten monstrous superheroes, and learn all about them.

Plymouth City Centre Company is running the Safari to help bring some sort of normality back to the high street. Shoppers are being kept entertained whilst encouraging more visitors to the city centre while keeping them safe. 

The family fun safari can be found in Plymouth city centre. It has been designed to spread joy, support the NHS and give families a safe reason to return to the high street. It is running until 30th September 2020.

Using a smartphone, you can track down all ten Monster Heroes. You will learn about each one you discover, including their name, story and superpowers. Once all ten have been found, you will get a free e-book that tells the story of them teaming up on an adventure. 

You do not need to download an app or sign up for anything. The safari works by using a QR code reader or a NFC technology tags. There is a nominal cost of £2 per family to play, with donations going to NHS Charities Together.
