And thanks to the Cleverix Stamp Hunt, their excursions will now be more fun than ever. At each of the 30 attractions, they’ll have to answer a tricky question in their puzzle booklet and mark the page with the official stamp. If they’ve paid close attention to everything they’ve seen, they shouldn’t have any problems answering the questions … Sound exciting? Well, it is!
Finally, your knowledge will be rewarded: If you have answered the questions correctly and collected lots of stamps, you’ll receive special surprises: the surprise when you have seven stamps, a second one when you have 15 or more.
