About the Lone Ranger Ride for Justice Scavenger Hunt
Disney took the iconic characters from The Lone Ranger movie and franchise and brought them to life – literally – as a storytelling device for their campaign. Life-size and ultra-realistic statues of the Lone Ranger (Hammer) and Tonto (Depp) riding horseback will be embarking on a journey across the country – kicking off in NYC and ending in LA, just in time for the movie’s premier. They’ll be gracing rooftops, mountaintops, and famous landmarks along the way, only staying long enough in each city to be discovered by the locals before they continue their ride westward.
The twist is that no one will know where Lone Ranger and Tonto will appear or where they’re going next. So Disney is challenging the public through social media to participate in a scavenger hunt to find the physical statues, or to guess their location based on a photo clue.
In each city, two clues will be released on The Lone Ranger Ride for Justice tumblr page. The first clue will be a hard clue, and the second, posted later, will be an easier one. Participants are asked to find Lone Ranger and Tonto, take a photo and upload to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #LRRideforJustice for a chance to win a trip for two to New Mexico. All users must first register the sweepstakes on the tumblr page.
