This week, Wanaka’s iconic tourist attraction, Puzzling World officially released their virtual tour to offer those unlucky punters trapped during Covid-19 at least a glimpse of what they missed, or hopefully, can look forward to in the future.
In fact, with eleven key areas featured, 360° clips, drone footage and a sped-up ‘Time Warp’ tour of the entire business, perhaps more than a ‘glimpse’ is available!
“We had this tour created last year with its usage as a unique training tool at tourism trade shows its main purpose”, remarks Duncan Spear, Puzzling World’s marketing manager. “With such shows now cancelled for the foreseeable future, and many disappointed tourists who’ve had to cancel dream holidays down our way, we thought we’d offer this free tour as a way to help soften the blow and perhaps generate excitement for a return to open borders”.
Storyline Pictures, a Nelson-based consultancy were brought in to film segments over the course of a week to create an immersive tour of all areas of Puzzling World and includes fun, inbuilt video sequences that allows the user to genuinely feel they’re ‘in the scene’. Daron Graham, the firm’s director states, “Google are saying that people researching online for the future (including travel) has almost doubled. People at home have a lot of spare time and internet usage is up, with virtual tours being very popular. Puzzling World’s is a cool presentation and every bit of marketing will help during these times”.
