Despite rumours on Facebook that Google Maps was showing McDonalds’ golden arches in Three Parks, there will be no Big Macs in Wānaka any time soon.
Allan Dippie, developer of Three Parks confirmed, “I drove down Sir Tim Wallis Drive this morning to get a coffee from the supermarket and didn’t see any sign of any yellow arches so they definitely haven’t arrived over the holidays whilst no one was looking! There are other places in Wānaka selling burgers and chips however if you are desperate…”
Dropping a pin on Google Maps is easy to do and once loaded onto social media, can gather traction in full fledged fake news flight.
However, McDonald’s confirmed that it is fake news and there are no Big Macs on the horizon.
