Taleblazer FAQs

Q: Can I download the Taleblazer App while in the gardens?

Yes. The app can be downloaded using only data while in the gardens. It takes a little longer than if WIFI is used but certainly can be done.

Q: Can I use an Ipad rather than an Iphone?

Yes, but only if the Ipad has GPS capabilities. WiFi-only iPad models (ones without cellular network capability) do NOT have a built-in GPS.

Q: Will Taleblazer work if Location Services are turned off on my phone?

No. Taleblazer works by tracking the location of your phone, just as your mapping app does. You can download both the app and the games, but If location Services are turned off, you will be prompted to turn it on when you start a game.(Usually done in settings.)
