Cellphone Adventure Brings San Diego History To Life

Audio

Aired 3/21/11

In an effort to give visitors a new way to see the park, the Balboa Park Online Collaborative created the Giskin Anomaly - a cellphone adventure that's part scavenger hunt, part walking tour. We'll talk about the game, a new contest designed especially for Steampunk lovers, and other ways technology is being utilized in the park.

Transcript

It's part science-fiction, part scavenger-hunt and part history lesson. It's called the Giskin Anomaly and players in Balboa Park are searching for clues that will lead them to trapped thoughts from the past. All you need is a cell phone, some energy and imagination and you'll be seeing and hearing Balboa park in a way you never have before.
