SeaWorld Orlando® embarks on epic voyage

New app and experiential marketing tour launch

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SeaWorld Orlando kicks off its "Epic Voyage" campaign in New York City to launch Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, the park's all-new, largest-ever attraction opening this spring. The campaign includes stops in seven cities and a new mobile app, both designed to give families a sneak peek into the new attraction's thrilling and chilling adventure in ways as amazing as the continent itself.

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. 

In select cities, SeaWorld's "Epic Voyage" takes over malls and consumer travel shows with a unique family experience filled with a massive ice dome, interactive virtual reality, shareable photo opportunities, chances to win incredible prizes, and, of course, live penguins.  Plus, Coca-Cola Freestyle machines will dispense free, refreshing sodas to quench the thirst of attendees.

Street teams will roam the cities in wrapped, Antarctic-themed Hyundai Santa Fes and Sonata Hybrids as they mingle with locals at various hot spots, commuter stations and key landmarks. 

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. Two lucky families will receive a 4-day, 3-night journey to SeaWorld Orlando to be one of the first to experience Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. This amazing vacation for four includes roundtrip airfare provided by Southwest Airlines, hotel accommodations, tickets to SeaWorld and Aquatica in Orlando, and more. The app -- SeaWorld's Antarctica -- is available for download today on iPhone/iPad; coming soon for Android devices.

"Since Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin was announced in November 2011, we've been planning and looking forward to bringing a glimpse of the attraction to these key markets to connect with our fans and let them feel the chill," said Vice President of Marketing & Sales for SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando Toni Caracciolo.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
