Montreal comes alive at night

Even in -8 weather, we were transported at each stop. Amazing technology!

Didn’t work

First, the website listed only 3 locations that weren’t open, but when you open the app at least half of them aren’t available. Then, it says sunset, but once we got to our first location, it actually started 40 min after sunset. So we waited. In the cold. Finally it hit the time, but the app didn’t work. It kept synchronizing for us and all the people around us for over 15 minutes. So, we gave up and walked to a second location, where it did the same thing before finally alerting us that there is a server error. Which isn’t noted anywhere on their website or anywhere you can look before actually showing up to the location. It seems like such a cool thing to do, but there needs to be better communication when things are closed or not working. And there needs to be clear times posted on the website other than just saying sunset.

Brilliant idea, needs work

We were super excited about to do this and it’s a really fun idea! However, I can’t get the sound to work at all and it’s hard to tell what’s going on without it. It’s also challenging to navigate since it doesn’t give you directions or the address of the next spot.
