What: SeaWorld Orland Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin Epic Voyage Road Show
Where: Lenox Square Mall
When: April 6 and 7, 2013
Last month we took a trip to SeaWorld Orlando and were able to go behind the scenes at SeaWorld and meet one of the penguins. If you’d like to meet penguins, but can’t make the trip to Florida, you’re in luck. SeaWorld Orlando brings its “Epic Voyage” campaign to Lenox Square in Atlanta Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, in support of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, the park’s all-new attraction opening May 24.
As much fun as it was to pet the penguin at SeaWorld, it would have been even more exciting to visit Antarctica where the penguins live. SeaWorld Orlando’s new attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin transports 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 a first-of-its-kind family ride. Families can explore a massive penguin colony in an expanse that envelops them in cool extremes, both above and below the penguins’ icy world.
SeaWorld’s “Epic Voyage” road show at Lenox Square gives a preview of the new attraction. Families can experience 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. I did some research and found a review of the show from a mom who said it was a fun diversion for a a half hour or so. If you want more time with penguins, visit the new African penguin chicks at the Georgia Aquarium or the penguins at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga.
If you can’t make it to Lenox, SeaWorld’s made sure everyone can follow the freeze with an all-new mobile app that allows fans the world over 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.
