To add an extra level of fun an excitement to WonderCon, Webble LLC had their app, Webble Quest. Attendees would download the free app to their smartphones to begin. They would then use the interactive map to locate the booths that were participating and scan a QR Code to check into that location. After finding 6 locations, Attendees would return to the Webble booth, roll a 20 sided dice, collect a prize and be entered into a contest to win a 4-Day Pass to San Diego Comic Con.
