QR Clue Cards – Scan the small QR code to register!

Here is what the registration form may look like (depending on your device). Please enter your contact information so we can contact you if you win one of our nightly drawings!

Step 2. Find QR Codes

Most phones can use the camera app to scan QR Codes, but we have seen some phone camera apps don’t work.

If it does not work, you will have to download a “QR Code Scanner” app from your phone’s app store.

QR Code cards are located throughout the (Sights & Sounds) park. They are on booths and at some attractions. There are 22 QR codes total.

When you find a QR Clue card, scan the LARGE QR code to bring up the entry form. This is what the QR Clue Card looks like:

The small QR code allows you to register if you haven’t already (YOU ONLY NEED TO REGISTER ONCE TO PLAY ALL 6 NIGHTS)!

Step 3. Complete the Entry Form

When the entry form pops up on your device, enter the phone number you registered with. That’s it! You now have 1 entry in the nightly drawing.

BONUS: Want A Second Entry?

Answer the Holiday Trivia Question just below where you entered your phone number. Answer correctly and you get a second entry for this QR code. That means you can enter up to a total of 2 entries per QR Clue Code. Here is the Trivia question for QR code #1 located at our booth. Can you answer this one?

The answer is “Nakatomi Plaza”.

So, grab a friend or family member and start looking for clues throughout the park!

This is a FREE event at Sights & Sounds.

You can find any number of QR codes and answer as many bonus questions as you want. There is no minimum number of entries to play and the maximum number of entries is 44 per night.

Each night is a new game and new drawing, so you get a chance each night. Come play with us!
