Remember those cancelled Pokémon GO “Safari Zone” gatherings? The Safari Zone events are coming back this October.
On October 7 events will be held in shopping centres in Copenhagen, Denmark, and in Prague, The Czech Republic. On October 14 the safari will hit Stockholm, Sweden, and Amstelveen, The Netherlands. Participants can expect to find special eggs from PokéStops, activated lures, and hard-to-find Pokémon. Tickets will be available at each shopping centre’s Facebook page shortly. You just have to be over 13 to attend.
The Safari Zone events were first scheduled to take place in August, but were postponed due to a similar event that took place in Chicago, which quickly descended into chaos. Over 20,000 paid $20 for a ticket, only to discover that they couldn’t actually play the game due to server problems and overloaded cell towers. A class action lawsuit was proposed against Niantic as a result of the bungled festival.
The upcoming Safari Zone events take place at the following shopping centres:
October 7th, 2017
- Fisketorvet—Copenhagen, Denmark
- Centrum Černý Most—Prague, The Czech Republic
October 14th, 2017
- Mall of Scandinavia—Stockholm, Sweden
- Stadshart Amstelveen—Amstelveen, The Netherlands
