The Horseshoe Falls Quest App has just gone live for both Apple and Android.

Triggered by GPS location, the Horseshoe Falls Quest is designed with families in mind. It offers a fun way to explore and learn more about this beautiful area, full of wildlife and history. The App guides you on a short walk (1½ miles / 2.5 km) from Llantysilio Green Picnic Area with regular stops for questions which draw your attention to the many points of interest – a gallery also provides extra information and old photos. Once the quest is complete, you will be awarded a ‘badge’, available to show your friends via social media, depending on which sort of questions you answered best.

The walk takes in the picturesque Llantysilio Church, the idyllic Horseshoe Falls and Llangollen Canal (the start of the Pontcysyllte and Canal World Heritage Site) and over the recently restored Chain Bridge to Berwyn Station, part of the Llangollen Heritage Railway. You may wish to stop for refreshments at the Chainbridge Hotel, or the heritage café in Berwyn Station which is open in busy periods.

It has been a very enjoyable project to work on and a big well done to Claire, Curtis and Barry for designing and building the App.
