Free mobile app
The game is a treasure hunt for families and for children aged eight and up. The Rabbids have invaded the gardens of Versailles and players must flush them out, on the tracks of a mysterious Rabbid Louis XIV.
Geolocation technology automatically activates ten mini-games in augmented reality according to the visitor's location in the gardens. Playtime and learning come together as children discover iconic sites such as the Latona Basin, the Parterre of the Orangery and the groves found around the French gardens.
With each mini-game, players collect pieces of the regal garb of Rabbid Louis XIV, while also learning fun facts about the sites surrounding them: the hydraulic workings of the Latona Basin and the origin of the trees in the Orangery among others.
Social medial users can also find a Rabbid Louis XIV filter on Instagram and have fun placing the character in a variety of situations.
In addition to the audio guide app, which features more than a dozen itineraries including three specially designed for children, this new app makes discovering the gardens of Versailles child’s play, combining an exceptional cultural site with entertainment for the whole family.
