When you get close to a statue, your MagicBand+ will start to vibrate, like the “Hot or Cold” game or Geocaching!

Once you find the statue, you’ll wave your band side-to-side until it vibrates and glows! That’s how you know you’ve captured the character.

However, if you want that character to come out and play, make sure you are facing a wall or another flat surface before opening the door to peek inside.
