Bored this summer? Fancy doing something different? Well you’re in luck, the Nintendo Konga Beach Road Trip hits the road on 24 July and it’s guaranteed to keep you and the whole family occupied for hours!

The Nintendo Konga Beach Road Trip will visit 18 locations across the UK including 13 Woolworths big W stores and London Zoo throughout the summer holidays. The Konga Beach Shack, a 40ft articulated lorry decked out like a Hawaiian beach bar, will showcase the latest Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance games, months before they are available to buy in the UK.

Everyone will have the opportunity to sample a selection of the biggest games available this year including Donkey Konga, Animal Crossing and Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green. A selection of great third party games will also be available including Shrek 2 (Activision), Sonic Advance 3 (THQ), Spyro The Dragon Fusion (Vivendi Universal Games) and Crash Bandicoot Fusion (Vivendi Universal Games).

Visitors to all events will have the chance to enter a prize draw to win a Jeep Wrangler as well as the chance to hone their skills in the Donkey Konga Bongo Battle tournament to win a host of prizes from Nintendo GameCubes and Game Boy Advance SPs, to giant inflatable bananas and t-shirts.

The top ten scorers from the tour will win a VIP place to play in the Donkey Konga Bongo Battle final at Game Stars Live, the UK’s biggest gaming event in London on 1 – 5 September.
