Singapore, November 2011 – Suited Technology Pte Ltd officially launched its local social game App, TuxSeeDo, at Singapore Flyer from 2pm to 6pm on 12 November 2011.
128 fun-loving Singaporeans braved the rain to visit 20 activity locations all around the Marina Bay last Saturday afternoon. Participants took home gifts from discount coupons, movie vouchers, pens and notepads to Singapore Flyer Flight Tickets. One of them, Powerpiggy, went home a proud and very happy owner of a brand new iPad 2 3G.
The event was probably the largest App launch in physical distance and size spanning a 5 km trail with 20 activity locations around the Marina Bay Area, including Singapore Flyer, Helix Bridge, ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay City Gallery, Merlion Park, Esplanade, and Marina Square.
In addition to the gifts and prizes, players and visitors to the Singapore Flyer were treated to close up street magic performance by renowned local magician, Danny Koh, runner up to last year’s OMG competition. They also had the opportunity to try their hands at flying a “real” Boeing 747 at Flight Experience during this event. There was also a Fun Photo Booth photo memento for all who wanted pictures taken with Danny, and model bloggers such as Holly Jean, Mable Soe and Danielle Luque.
“Terencethegreat” (Terence) found out about the App two weeks before the race. He started to explore the App over the next few days and introduced the App to his friend “Powerpiggy”(Jamie), the subsequent winner of TuxSeeDo@Marina Bay and the iPad 2. The duo decided to take to spend the afternoon at the Marina Bay but did not expect to win the race.
In the post event interview, Terence said, “It was the first time that we had actually walked the whole distance (And hurriedly taking photos in the rain) between Singapore Flyer to Marina Bay City Gallery. In fact, for some parts of the challenge which was in the open, I was busy covering the outputs on my iPhone to prevent rain from seeping in (Phone still under warranty..Haha!!!)”
Jamie also added that, “Winning the Ipad was definently the biggest takeaway, as it has become an advance birthday present for Terence. But putting the iPad aside, we enjoyed the scenery (amid the rain) while exploring Marina Bay as well as making new friends at the event.”
The couple were not the only ones who went home happy. 4 other runner up players went home with a pair of Singapore Flyer Flight Tickets each.
The 4-hour “Amazing Race” style App launch was sponsored by the Singapore Flyer and organised in partnership with URA placement for Marina Bay Singapore and 13 different brand partners located around the Marina Bay area to create a fun and rewarding way to experience the Marina Bay.
