Sweepstakes: Kitty’s Digital Scavenger Hunt

Kitty’s hidden stickers

Kitty has been very busy lately.

Halloween is her favorite time of the year, and she’s put together all sorts of fun activities for her friends to celebrate Kitty’s Digital HoliWeen. It brings all of the magic of Halloween right to your house.

She can’t wait to see everyone back at Holiday World next year, so she’s created a game to give away two Season Passes for 2021. Plus, the prize includes two overnights in a Christmas Cabin next door at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort.

Just solve her game and you’ll be given the option to enter to win.

Kitty will be hiding several stickers around our a few individual pages around our website between now and October 24. If you can solve any one of a series of riddles she gives you to help track them down, you just need to click on the sticker that you find and you can enter for a chance to win.

For Kitty’s younger fans, you will need a trusted grown-up to help finish your entry once you find a sticker.

Here’s Kitty’s full list of clues. We’ll update it with more clues through Saturday, October 24.

  • Clue 1: Here Kitty, kitty! But not too fast, you’ll spill the tea. To find my first sticker, just look for an attraction – it’s named after me!
  • Clue 2: Holiday World shows are magical, and best enjoyed with your friends. For this sticker, search for my friends and I before the Scavenger Hunt ends.
  • Clue 3: Start on this page and you can plan your stay. Using these instructions, you won’t lose your way!
  • Clue 4: Splashin’ Safari is packed with so many slides, it never ends. But this brand-new one lets you race against your family and friends!

Still stuck? Click here for Kitty to take you right to the page to enter the sweepstakes!

Be sure to follow along with Kitty’s Digital HoliWeen for tons of great fall fun!
