A room-scale VR game that pitted customers against a giant angry snowman, hell-bent on ruining Christmas.
Players were armed with giant candy canes and encouraged to hit snowballs and presents, avoid bombs and damage Gumpy to save the day.
Visitors registered their contact details (via an iPad), to play for daily and weekly prizes and to see their name projected on the giant leaderboard.
Players were encouraged to share their high score on social media to generate buzz.
