[prMac.com] Pasadena, California - Introducing Crash, a new location-based attraction discovery app and website where users can find 1,000s of unique and curated tourist attractions. Crash singles out the wild, the wonderful and the just plain weird "photo-worthy" locations around you and features off the beaten path locations including hidden waterfalls, nine giant donuts (and one bagel), and hundreds of cool film locations like Elliot's house from E.T. and the Kill Bill chapel.
"Think of Crash as Yelp, meets Foursquare, meets Instagram - with a touch of Roadside America - all around photo-worthy tourist attractions," said Erick Laubach, CEO of Crashworks, Inc. Crash lets anyone be their own tour guide and explore the attractions which make a city unique - places like amazing street art projects by the likes of Banksy and Shepard Fairey and museums you never knew existed (McDonald's Museum, anyone?)."
Discover or Be the Discoverer:
When visiting a Crash attraction, users can "check in" and post additional photos and comments to rack up points and compete with their friends to turn a city into their personalized game board. Those with the most overall points will rule the leaderboard! For locals, Crash lets users add cool and unique spots that only they may know about, earning them credit (and the glory) of being the "discoverer."
