New iPhone/Android ‘App’ gives guests real-time attraction info at Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights”

Universal Studios Hollywood is part­ner­ing with Geodelic to intro­duce a free mobile onsite appli­ca­tion for the theme park’s “Halloween Horror Nights” event, enabling iPhone and Android mobile devise users to obtain park attrac­tion direc­tions and minute-by-minute updates and tips, includ­ing wait times and show sched­ules. “Halloween Horror Nights” con­tin­ues on selected dates through October 31.

Designed to enhance the “Halloween Horror Nights” expe­ri­ence by cre­at­ing an inter­ac­tive snap­shot of the over­all event, the iPhone and Android appli­ca­tion will pro­vide guests with con­tin­u­ously updated and rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion dur­ing their onsite visit. Access to wait times and loca­tions of mazes, scare zone, shows, attrac­tions and restau­rants will be eas­ily acces­si­ble from any­where within the theme park through­out the 16-night run of “Halloween Horror Nights.”

While a tra­di­tional web­site gives a brand mar­ket­ing reach to users at home, our onsite pub­lish­ing plat­form allows busi­nesses and des­ti­na­tions such as Universal Studios to push infor­ma­tion that is imme­di­ately rel­e­vant to cus­tomers at their own loca­tion,” said Rahul Sonnad, CEO of Geodelic Systems. “Universal is clearly lead­ing the way on mobile tech­nol­ogy with this ground-breaking expe­ri­ence, and will pro­vide a show­case for oth­ers in the travel, hos­pi­tal­ity, and enter­tain­ment industries.”

To down­load the appli­ca­tion, con­sumers can access or search “Horror Nights” at the iPhone App Store. There is no charge for the download.
