Are You Ready to be a Part of “The Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush”? Howdy Partners! Mosey on over as I tell you the tale of the Legend of Frontierland. It seems that there’s a trouble a-brewing in them their hills.
Frontierland and its neighbor, Rainbow Ridge, are in the midst of a good, ol’ fashioned land feud. Rainbow Ridge – a once-booming mining town – has dried up, and they have their eyes set on Frontierland. The steady, hardworking folk in Frontierland want to keep the town safe and free of rougharound-the-edges, opportunistic types. Rumors are spreading that gold has been discovered in mines belonging to Frontierland, and there is even a rumor that Frontierland itself sits on the motherlode!
Whether or not the rumors are true, the folk in Rainbow Ridge have one thing on their minds: take over Frontierland! Thus, the struggle begins-now the only question that remains-will you be a friend of #MyFrontierland or #MyRainbowRidge. Welcome to the Legend of Frontierland-a new interactive game where you are immersed into the feud between the people of Frontierland and the gang from over the hill at Rainbow Ridge as you create your own persona and frontier story.
How to Play:
Your first stop is at any of the game locale situated in the heart of Frontierland in Disneyland where you will, of course, need to create your Western name and persona. Will you be a peacekeeper or outlaw, or someone in between? It’s all up to you.
2) Like any feud, you gotta pick a side partner. Will you be either the “peaceful citizens of Frontierland” or the “opportunistic Rainbow Ridge townsfolk”?
3) Look up on the walls to answer a Want Ad. The ads will let you know who needs help and who is hiring.
4) Earn Bits-think of them as currency or points that you can redeem for more game play and of course, the ultimate, buying land.
5) Will you be a Deputy at the jail, or possibly making signs or working as a performer for Miss Rose at her Talent Agency located inside the Golden Horseshoe or perhaps we will find you in a high stakes game of cards-the choices are yours to make.
6) Once you have earned enough bits, turn them in at the Trading Depot to purchase your land or maybe even a mine.
7) Once you have your deed it’s time to take it over to the Telegraph Office to file a claim to your stake.
From 11:00 – 6:00 each day interactive stations located throughout Frontierland enable guests to become a part of the story-line for “Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!” Locations include the Sheriff’s Office and Jail, the Hideout, the Trading Post, a Telegraph Station, a Card Table inside the Golden Horseshoe, and a Talent Agency.
Players can also participate in the various locations located throughout Frontierland, interact with other “fellow citizens” wearing your town’s color, and earn “bits” which will aid participants in making “land purchases”.
No need to worry about how to get around town. The colorful cast of characters and good citizens of Frontierland and Rainbow Ridge will help guide you along the way. Among the places you’ll need to go include:
Trading Post – This is the meeting place and first stop for new Frontierland citizens. This is also where citizens can keep up with the latest Frontierland news and swap plans for fending off those Rainbow Ridge ruffians.
Hideout – Like the Trading Post, the Hideout is the first stop and central meeting place for citizens of Rainbow Ridge.
Telegraph Station – The information hub of Frontierland, this is the place to send and receive important messages.
Sheriff’s Office and Jail – This is where outlaws are brought to justice and where lawmakers work to keep the peace.
Talent Agency – Based in the Golden Horseshoe, this is where new talent is discovered and showcased in Frontierland.
Card Table – Also located in the Golden Horseshoe, this ongoing card game plays host to outlaws and heroes alike. Be careful what you say here! You never know who may be listening.
Just like a high stakes hand of poker, Disney is not showing their whole hand just yet, with little bits being revealed as the game continues to be rolled out throughout the summer. Giddy up partner-don’t be left out of the Legends of Frontierland Gold Rush. Join in the fun every day throughout the summer in Frontierland at the Disneyland Resort.
