FOX’s “Alcatraz” Viral Turns Into Sweepstakes

by Dan Koelsch

On Friday we updated you on the latest part of the Legends of Alcatraz viral campaign for FOX’s new mystery show Alcatraz. A select few actually got to go on a special tour of the prison island and collect some viral clues. Find out what happened after the jump.

Collider has the details of the scavenger hunt from the viral event, which included some pretty cool items. Read the fan-written description of the event over there, but if you couldn’t make it, then you are still in luck. The Legends of Alcatraz website has some puzzles you can play in order to get more entries into their Ford sweepstakes. There are five puzzles open now, with more added every week. We don’t want to spoil the fun, so we won’t give you the answers.

Let us know in the comments below if you like the fact this has turned into a sweepstakes, or would you have rather had more complex narrative viral campaign?

P.S. The FOX YouTube channel looks to be starting a series of videos that have Dr. Soto (Jorge Garcia) giving a tour of Alcatraz. Could this be part of the viral campaign, or simply a nice little online exclusive for fans? Watch Part 1 below.
