THE big green “Hide-and-go-Seat” was set up yesterday at a mystery location in Gisborne, that turned out to be the Sponge Bay carpark.

Over 50 people rushed to the spot in the hope of winning an air ticket to go anywhere in New Zealand.

Only the first 20 can be winners.

At Sponge Bay yesterday, Tahua Pihema and Timata Tapara were 10th and 11th in line.

Tahua won a $1 return flight for two to anywhere in the country and Timata Tapara won $50 off a return flight anywhere in New Zealand.

“Last time I missed out but this time I was certain I would get there and look I’m number 10!” Tahua said.

They are both going to use their tickets to fly to Queenstown.

The Air New Zealand Grabaseat promotion is on until March, with the giant green inflatable seat turning up at a mystery spot in all 20 towns and cities that the airline flies to.
