McDonald’s set up a pop-up Monopoly Hotel in Federation Square in Melbourne to mark the return of its Monopoly game in Australia. The hotel, which was unveiled in Federation Square on 7 Sep 2016, is one of the world’s smallest real life hotel, measuring less than 8 feet by 10 feet.
The space boasts a bright red game board interior and nostalgic nudges to the game complete with “Free Parking” and “Go to Jail” posters on the walls.
The fast food chain, which is known Down Under as “Macca’s,” held a contest to choose two superfans who would get to sleep inside the mini-hotel, and Two lucky fans, Laura Paton and Emma Kendrick, won a night’s stay in the hotel to mark the celebration, and were even greeted by the Mr. Monopoly character who played the role of the concierge. There is also a new app version of the game where customers can scan their cards on their smartphones.
