New Harry Potter Facebook App Gives Die Hard Fans a Chance to Win a Trip to the UK
Have you always wanted to visit the actual, real life locations where Harry Potter was filmed? Well if you really know your Harry Potter trivia, and have a Facebook account, you might just have a chance to win a trip for four to Britain to see all the Harry Potter your heart desires!
LoveUK has launched an eight week long quest on their Facebook page to challenge Harry Potter fans to answer as many trivia questions correctly and collect "galleons" (just like in the movie!) for every correct answer. The LoveUK fans who collect the most galleons at the end of the quest will be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Britain!
Developed by Betapond, the app is an effort by VisitBritan to bring more tourism to the nation with the upcoming release of the final installment of the series, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Head of digital for VisitBritain, Justin Reid “The Harry Potter app will be an excellent way to engage with our growing community of fans overseas – and to help celebrate the fantastic culture and heritage of Britain that makes us such an attractive place for potential visitors.”
About 40 percent of potential visitors to the UK are inspired by locations they see in films, so the release of the upcoming Harry Potter should be a booming time in tourism for the Brits! With this app, VisitBritain is using the intense power of social media to have Harry Potter fans make the connections between the movie and the real life locations!
