#EPIC48Hours 5.0: THE MOVIE highlights the fifth installment of San Diego’s premier benchmark promotion, #EPIC48Hours, which has been dubbed “The World’s Biggest Radio Promotion” and is centered on one winner and their guest and the most Epic 48 hours of their life.  The contest has three rules and one guarantee: 1) Be willing to go anywhere, 2) Be willing to do anything, and 3) Be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. The guarantee: The most EPIC 48 hours of your life.

This time, the winners, Tabitha Exceen and Sarah Leoncini, were among 100 finalists who spent one Epic night at Harrah’s Resort So Cal for a special #Epic48Hours pre-party that included a Q&A from past Epic winners and a stay for everyone at the hotel. The following morning, the winners were chosen and soon on their way to experience the most Epic 48 hours of their life!

#Epic48Hours 5.0 started with a stop in Los Angeles to meet Jimmy Kimmel and party with The Chainsmokers in the girls’ own Hollywood Hills mansion. The next morning it was breakfast in Burbank with Halsey and then over to Las Vegas for lunch and a private tour of Steve Aoki’s insane pad.

Rick and the winners then arrived at Sundance Helicopters for a private charter, landing inside the Grand Canyon for a champagne picnic, before heading to the next destination: the magical Sedona, Arizona. Friday started with a jeep tour of the Sedona canyons before heading east to San Antonio, where they met 210 native Ally Brooke, who put aside an entire afternoon to show off her city to Rick and our winners. Along with an assist from The City of San Antonio, Tabitha and Sarah were treated to a private tour of The Alamo, a river cruise in their own boat and lunch 750 feet in the sky, high atop The Tower of the Americas.

 There was just enough time for Tabitha and Sarah to freshen up inside their presidential, two-story suite at the historic Emma Hotel, before heading over to see Ariana Grande’s private sound check at AT&T Center. They watched the show from the pit and enjoyed some one-on-one time with both Normani and Ariana in their dressing rooms.

But perhaps the most EPIC part of the entire experience was the transportation. Aside from the limos, helicopters, jeeps and boats, Rick and winners spent each moment between cities soaring above the clouds in their own private jet, complete with two pilots and their personal flight attendant.

Z90 morning man and host of #Epic48Hours 5.0 Rick Morton said, “What a thrill ride! It seems like an impossible task every time we embark on another #EPIC48Hours adventure! I am humbled to be a part of the team at Z90 & Morton in the Morning. P.S. If you ever fly on a private jet be prepared because it will spoil you for good!”

Winner Tabitha Exceen said, “It was non-stop surprises at every moment! Just when you think there is a second to relax and take it all in, nope, you are caught off guard with more excitement. There were so many moments I was left speechless because I couldn’t believe who I was standing in front of or what we were doing. #EPIC48Hours truly changed my life.”
