Prag's Google Street Digital Road Rally


To race one of the 5 different courses, you must follow the instructions below and select the course of your choice. 


So you think you're good at racing video games, but are your ready for a Google Street Road Rally out on some real roads with traffic? Get from Start to Finish any way you can as long as its a Google Street. It is not as easy as you think because this is no closed course racing track. You better get your instructions printed out first, because once on the Street you got no GPS to find your way. In Game 1, take Jake and Elmo to the Cook County Clerk's Office. In Game 2, get the mayor from Yankee Stadium to Shea Stadium on opening day. In Game 3, you must make it from the Watergate complex to the Ronald Reagan Airport before the FBI catches up with you. In Game 4, you get to do some mountain driving over the twists and turns of San Francisco's Twin Peaks. In Game 5, seek out Quasimodo the bell ringer to find Esmeralda, and take her to the Eiffel Tower and Petit Parc in Versailles.

HOW TO PLAY: 

If you want to play one of the five games below, you must play it in Google Map. While the game in the above window (#1) is playable in the above window, it is not as easily controlled as in Google Map. So, here are the instructions:
  1. Select the game below that you would like to play.
  2. Select the START symbol and "More" in the lower right corner of the dialog box. 
  3. Then select "Street View" to enter Google Street at the start location.
  4. Forget the arrows, for high-speed driving position the oval cursor as far ahead on the road as possible and double-click to move forward. But be careful, if you go too fast, you could miss a turn or run through a car or a pedestrian. To make turns, click, hold and drag the screen to the direction you want to go.
  5.  Right-clicking will exit Street View in order to see where you are in Google Map, double-clicking on the road in Road Map mode brings back to Street View.
