DETAILS: ‘Every city has a story, but Boomtown isn’t every city. Its history is as complex as the labyrinth of streets and corridors it contains. From the mysterious disappearance of the town’s forefather amidst rumours of alien technology and mind control to the serious political wrangling of high ranking officials and corrupt bankers.’
In 2009 ‘intrepid explorer Nickolas Boom’ found himself in a township that would come to be called Boomtown. Since then, Boomtown has hosted the Boomtown Fair every year, where 60,000 people join the story and watch its plot unfold between almost 30 main venues.
This year, Boomtown Fair holds Chapter 9: Behind The Mask, as it continues its elaborate storyline – expect the unexpected as scenes could break out before your very eyes in Boomtowns districts and barrios. The story continues, and Jose’s regime has been toppled in the revolution. Will the mysterious Masked Man lead Boomtown now? You can catch up on the story here........
VERDICT: Boomtown Fair ‘is a huge playground for all generations’, where you can let your imagination run wild and get lost in the history of Boomtown.
