Smarties, I know it’s a GORGEOUS weekend here in the QC, but in case you’re looking to stir it up a bit, like hanging with live penguins, you might want to read on!
SeaWorld Orlando is hosting the “Epic Voyage” campaign at SouthPark Mall today and tomorrow in support of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, the park’s all-new, largest-ever attraction opening May 24. I’m thinking this is going to give us the itch to make a stop in Orlando this summer!
SeaWorld Orlando’s new attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin will transport families into a rarely seen, icy world. They’ll feel the majestic grandeur of the South Pole and see it through the penguins’ eyes on an exhilarating, first-of-its-kind family ride. They’ll explore a massive penguin colony in an expanse that envelops them in cool extremes, both above and below the penguins’ icy world. It’s a must-see, one-of-a-kind theme park experience only at SeaWorld in Orlando.
Here’s the scoop @ SouthPark Mall:
SeaWorld’s “Epic Voyage” will take over SouthPark Mall with a unique family experience filled with a massive ice dome, interactive virtual reality, shareable photo opportunities, chances to win incredible prizes by playing Antarctica-themed games, and, of course, live penguins. Coca-Cola Freestyle machines will also be part of the experience on site to quench the thirst of attendees with complimentary, refreshing drinks. Did reading this make you thirsty? I know I am:-)
SeaWorld street teams will roam Charlotte in wrapped, Antarctic-themed Hyundai Santa Fes and Sonata Hybrids (that’s the Smarty Party in her first celeb photo opp:-) as they mingle with the locals at various hot spots and key landmarks. The street team will test the locals with trivia, hand out prizes and allow them to escape to Antarctica through the augmented reality videos that can be shared with family and friends. So make sure you stop and check them out, you just may win something cool!
SeaWorld’s made sure everyone can follow the freeze with an all-new mobile app that allows fans to put themselves in the action … plus interactive elements to share with friends. From behind-the-scenes teaser videos and tour details to penguin fun facts and trivia, consumers can immerse themselves virtually into Antarctica through augmented reality and also enter the Family Voyage Sweepstakes. The app — SeaWorld’s Antarctica — is available for download today on iPhone/iPads and Android phones.
