    Lightbulb Ideas for 10th Anniversary Activities

    Thought I would start a thread for ideas for activities for the Anniversary Celebration - hope you don't mind JohnY!

    I'll start off with my own idea - I thought that it would be neat to have a digital scavenger hunt. Each team would be given a list of clues located somewhere on WDW public property. Each team would need to not only find the location, but also have their complete team photographed in front of the target! The clues would then be grouped together as a final clue to the destination. There, teams would download their pictures into the judges laptop and be graded on their completetion of the exercise. The team with the highest percentage correct and fastest time would be the winner!

    Now that's quite a good idea. Maybe add in something like "National Treasure" with odd clues to be figured out. I'd go for that.

    Oh, odd clues would be what the game would be all about. We would have to mix some less difficult with the advanced clues....or, there could be an advanced and beginners list given so first timers and old timers could enjoy the activity!

    ANYONE ELSE have any ideas?

    That would be a great idea for a 2nd game GiltterDisneyGirl! Each team would be free to go to which ever park they would want. At the end of the time period (day, hours, weekend...), the team that has been on the most rides wins!

    The only catch is how do you track how many rides they have been on???? I would suggest taking a picture of the group while on the ride or loading on the ride, but that may not always be possible. You could have the CM sign a passport-type thing, but there would be no way to prove that someone else didn't just sign off on it....

    I love the idea, just how do you implement a judging system.

    What about a picture of them just before getting on the ride or on the ride if they can. Also if they are photo rides they can buy the photo or just take a picture of the picture, like i do!

    Oh just thought of something! on jugding!

    They can ride as a group if they can but if they can't thats alright too, because maybe you can have an individual contest too.

    The team can add up each person rides like say....
    John Smith on team A went on 20 rides but his team lost in the group. And Team B's person Jane Smith went on only 17 rides, but her team won.

    And on adding up the group
    Say Team A & B have 5 member each
    Team A
    All went on 10 all together and only 4 members went on 13 together.
    Team B
    All went on 15 all together and only 3 members went on 17 rides together.
    Team B Wins because all the members went on all 15 rides individual or as a group

    Or you can do the Group adding a differnt way too
    by just all the differnt rides they went, not just all together but by the listing all the rides they all differntly went on.

    All they need is a photo of them on each of the rides!

    Do you get what i'm trying to say? If so what yeah think?

    Good idea GiltterDisneyGirl!
    The rides could be given different point values depending if it were the entire group riding or if they were individuals!

    For example of teams of 4:

    Team A decides to split up entirely. All individuals ride 10 rides seperately. Riding attractions seperately is worth 1 point per person per ride. That gives the team 40 points.

    Team B decides to stick to gether and rides 8 rides. Riding attractions as a team would be worth 2 points per person per ride. That would give them 64 points!
    Riding together would give the team a statistical advantage, but would be slowed due to group size. By splitting up, a team can cover more ground and more rides, but have to hit twice as many to make up the spread!
    Another thing to think about would be that if a team decides to split up - each person must have a camera to take a picture of themself on the ride!

    As a bonus, if a team rides every attraction in a park, they get a bonus of 10 points. If they go on every attraction in WDW (impossible by my calculations - yep, I've gone that far!!) they get a bonus of 200 points!

    Each team would have to check in at the beginning of the event and have their camera certified that there are no pictures in the memory (to prevent cheating).

    Also, attractions may have to be defined. Would that include stage shows? Or transportation, such as the Main Street cars and busses? Or would it be simply attractions that have a seperate vehicle that travels in a direction with a themed show surrounding the vehicle?

    I was thinking we'd sit around the cantina and drink margaritas.

    We can volunteer to be judges and stay put while everybody goes about tournamenting. We'll count up the points when they're all done.

    Figaro was going to suggest he head the judging panel but he thought that one might be a bit messy! He now thinks that the treasure hunt should revolve around him with all the clues having some meaning for him I think he has another think coming......
