The Kentucky Derby Trivia & Horse Racing Experience

Welcome to the the Kentucky Derby Trivia & Horse Racing Experience! Are you ready to prove your knowledge and learn about the history of the Kentucky Derby? Gather your team, join our bespoke platform on your mobile device or laptop and top the leaderboard. During the experience, you will participate in a tense quiz against your competitors followed by a friendly competition to see who can pick the winning horse in the series of Kentucky Derby horse races. 


First, we’ll start with the quiz. You’ll be presented with a series of multiple-choice questions about the Kentucky Derby’s history, traditions, and famous horses. You’ll have a limited time to answer each question, and the quicker you respond correctly the more points you win! Once the time is up, the crowd responses will be shown to see how many people got the answer correct and who won the most points.


After the quiz, we’ll move on to the horse race competition. You’ll be given a list of the horses running in the race, the previous racing form of the horses and you’ll get to pick which one you think will win. You’ll be betting with virtual points, so there’s no need to worry about losing real money.


Once everyone has made their pick, we’ll watch the race together as a team and see which horse comes out on top. The crowd will be cheering as the horses traverse the racecourse and then the winners will be revealed as the race ends! The players who picked the winning horse will win points for the leaderboard, and the person with the most points at the end of the game will be declared the winner.


Throughout the experience, we’ll keep track of the individual and team leaderboards to see who’s in the lead. And of course, we’ll show the crowd responses for both the quiz and the horse race to add some extra excitement to the game.


Get ready to have some fun and test your knowledge of the Kentucky Derby!
