Qatar Airways is an official sponsor of Formula E. So, in honor of the race coming back to Brooklyn, the carrier is celebrating with New Yorkers and those visiting the city.
This Thursday, July 12, Qatar Airways is organizing a scavenger hunt in New York City with chances to win big — like two round-trip economy tickets to any of Qatar’s destinations big. All you’ll need is your phone and your noggin.
In order to participate, download the CityHunt official app and meet at the Rockefeller Plaza flags, which is where Qatar Airways representatives will be waiting for you. The scavenger hunt will take place between Rockefeller Plaza and Times Square, and you can play any time between 1:00pm and 5:00pm on July 12.
New Yorkers — and those visiting the city on July 12 — can participate as individuals or in teams. There’s no limit on the number of people on each team, but remember that Qatar will only award two complimentary tickets to the winning team.
According to Qatar, “the app will test you with picture/video activities, brain teasers and more,” but other than that, we don’t know much about the scavenger hunt. We can assume, though, that it’ll be helpful to have your phone battery charged and have your “go fast” shoes on. You might even see some people from the TPG team competing, so good luck! You’ll probably need it.
