Looking for something new to do on Stampede Park this year? How about escaping from jail? Or taking a nap?! Or starring in your very own animated GIF?

1. Locked Room – Wild West Jail Escape


You’ve been framed for a robbery and locked up in an ol’ western jail! You have 10 minutes to figure out what was stolen, who framed you, where the real criminals are hiding and find the dynamite that will blast you out of the sheriff’s office.


The Locked Room team repurposed an oil field trailer to look and feel just like an old western jail wagon, with barnboard paneling and jail bars. If 10 minutes sounds quick to solve all that, don’t worry. Clues will guide you along as you progress through the game.

2. Take a nap in the Casper NapmobileNaptour_Vehicle_1

You’ve walked 10 km. You’ve watched the Rodeo. You may have eaten some mini donuts. And all you want to do is get a quick nap in before you two step on the Nashville North dance floor.

This year, your wish has come true. One our sponsors, Casper—maker of mattresses, sheets and pillows designed for the best sleep ever—is bringing their Napmobile where you can hunker down for a snooze when you need it. And just to be clear, it’s one person per bed, folks.


Stop by the Napmobile (across from Nashville North beside the GMC activation) to sign up for your 15 minute nap (but if there’s not a line, you might get to sleep a little longer). Napmobile will be with us from July 7 to 10.


The National Film Board (NFB) is bringing their GIFnTAKE booth where you can put yourself inside an animated sequence from a NFB film. The final product is yours to send through your social media channels.


Check out the GIFnTAKE booth in the Western Oasis. It will be just beside the Sales Desk. And it’s totally free.
