Pink Panther Bounce

The Pink Panther Diamond has been stolen! Pink Panther remains one of the most iconic global franchises. Known for his suaveness and style, Pink Panther continues to attract new generations of fans around the globe.  Now, in partnership with MGM, the Bounce app will give users, better known as “Bouncers,” a revolutionary, interactive, app-navigated outdoor adventure, unlike anything before, through ‘The Pink Panther and the Case of the Missing Diamond’ experience. Individuals, friends, and families, led by the inimitable Inspector Clouseau, are navigated through the city, stopping at popular destinations and local gems. Each location unlocks new parts of the story, suspects to interrogate and clues to uncover.


Bounce provides entirely unique experiences where anyone in need of affordable entertainment, packed full of excitement and adventure, can find what they’re looking for. Bouncers get to explore, discover, and play on their own schedule. Bouncers can even pause and resume their experience as often as they want until they are finished, creating the perfect opportunity to explore further or hang out at one of the locations. It’s a great way for locals to rediscover home or for travelers to explore a new city. Bounce’s revolutionary app ensures that no matter where you play ‘The Pink Panther and the Case of the Missing Diamond,’ Bouncers have the exact same experience, just in their city.


“The exciting thing about this interactive Bounce app experience is that decisions have consequences and sometimes you only have one chance, so you have to stay on your toes, pay attention and look beyond the obvious,” said David House, Founder of Bounce and Creator of ‘The Pink Panther and the Case of the Missing Diamond’ app experience. “Not to mention, Bounce is designed to take you to areas of the city you may have hoped to see, locations you might want to return to later, or local hidden gems that deserve to be seen as well. We want you to have fun, play and explore. Discover the city you were hoping to see, not the version that you’re ‘supposed’ to see.”


Bouncers can enjoy ‘The Pink Panther and the Case of The Missing Diamond’ solo or in groups, for just $34.99 per car. House added, “I’m a fan of bouncing in a group, that way you can explore all the options and get more answers, and maybe find an easter egg or two!”


‘The Pink Panther and the Case of the Missing Diamond’ in-app experience will be available in multiple cities across the U.S., including Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., with many additional destinations scheduled for future release. There’s also an option to request the experience to be created in your own city or neighborhood. This can be done in the app or via the Bounce website,


“It’s fundamentally important to Bounce, when bringing the beloved Pink Panther brand to local communities and tourism hot-spots, that it’s not only engaging, but easily accessible to everyone. We worked hard to make this experience just that,” said House. “We are ecstatic to partner with MGM for this Pink Panther launch, and we know this is a milestone in revolutionizing how we experience travel and entertainment in the future.”


Robert Marick, Executive Vice President, Global Consumer Products & Experiences at MGM, added, “‘The Pink Panther and the Case of the Missing Diamond’ is a first-of-its-kind, innovative experience marrying groundbreaking technology with the fan-favorite sleuthing of Pink Panther and Inspector Clouseau. It’s the perfect way to uncover new city sites and spend time with friends and family exploring new places.”


MGM’s iconic character, Pink Panther, started life in the front and end credits of the legendary detective series of the same name more than 50 years ago. Its popularity spawned TV series, specials, comics and merchandise, and remains an icon of the era. Pink Panther continues to be discovered by new generations and remains one of MGMs most well-known franchises.
