Taking QR Codes to a Whole New Level

This year, Pacific Parklands Foundation partnered with Sense Tecnic Systems Inc. to bring Park Quest to the regional parks system.

Park Quest is a fun new mobile app designed to get youth out into the parks. Centred on a series of ‘quests’, users are challenged to complete tasks, solve puzzles and play real-world games – all while learning about the environment.

An interesting story recently surfaced in the news proving that we are not the only ones that were inspired by this technology:

The Kraay family, who own the Lacombe Corn Maze, recently received official notification from Guinness World Records that they own the world’s largest QR code.

The Alberta family farm has become famous for its annual corn mazes. This year, they have grown one that is also recognized as the world’s largest QR code at approximately 29,000 square metres. This means that the QR code can indeed be scanned, directing people to the website for the family’s mazes. To prove it, the family flew over their farm in a helicopter and held a phone out the window.

We may not have set a Guinness World Record but we’re constantly working with Sense Tecnic Systems Inc. to bring you new quests so be sure to check out Park Quest this fall!
