Carnival Cruise Lines has also launched a Facebook contest related to this new theater. The 5D Challenge: Trivial Pursuit Edition, a Facebook promotion designed to highlight the new Thrill 5D Theater, which is set to debut on the Carnival Breeze in June. The contest can be found on Carnival’s Facebook page under the Carnival Breeze tab.
Contest participants answer movie-themed trivia questions from Hasbro’s Trivial Pursuit brand. One prize will be given away daily through Jan. 13, with contestants required to correctly answer three daily trivia questions to enter into a prize drawing. Prizes include a 50-inch, 3D Plasma HDTV, a 3D phone, HD camcorder, and a $250 movie theater gift card. Also, Hasbro Video and Board Game Prize Packs, including an Xbox 360 gaming console, will be given away throughout the contest period.
The contest aims to draw attention to Carnival Breeze’s Thrill 5D Theater, a multi-dimensional experience designed to make passengers feel like they are actually in the movie. The theater combines a high-definition, 3D projection system with 4D elements such as squirting water and bubbles and original special effects that will tickle guests’ legs, blow air on their necks and poke them in their seats. Seats within the theater will shift back and forth, move from side to side and vibrate, creating a fifth-dimensional element.
The theater is one of several Fun Ship 2.0 entertainment features being implemented on the Carnival Breeze. Among the other features are Hasbro, The Game Show, a series of larger-than-life productions and entertainment activities based on the Family Game Night television series produced by Hasbro Studios and seen on The Hub, a network for children and their families, and Playlist Productions, which will combine live performances with high-tech LED staging and special effects and set the revues to music.
