Universal Parks & Resorts have launched a new campaign featuring comedians Kenan Thompson and Arturo Castro called “Let Yourself Woah,” designed to show off the range of emotions guests experience when visiting Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
This new campaign encourages guests to immerse themselves in these “woah” moments, as they “embark on epic adventures that can’t be experienced anywhere else,” like riding on a motorbike through the Forbidden Forest with Hagrid, causing mischief with the Minions, or coming face-to-face with dinosaurs on Jurassic World – The Ride.
Thompson currently stars on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” and made his way to fame through the popular ’90s Nickelodeon shows “All That” and “Kenan & Kel” — which were both filmed on the Universal Orlando backlot. Castro created and stars in a hit comedy series, and took vacations to Universal’s parks growing up.
“‘Woah’ means to me exactly what these parks do for you on a daily basis – on every ride, it’s like ‘Woah!'” said Thompson. “Universal’s theme parks hold a special place in my heart and it’s amazing to see how much they’ve grown since I worked here as a teenager. And now to be a part of a campaign for one of my favorite experiences in life… it’s almost like someone asking you if they can provide you an awesome time – of course, I say ‘bring it on!'”
“It is so exciting for me to be able to capture that ‘Woah’ feeling I always felt as a kid,” said Castro. “I’ve been going to Universal since I was five years old, and bringing 25 of my family members to the parks last year was incredible! It’s our favorite place to visit, hands down.”
The “Let Yourself Woah” campaign will launch nationwide on Feb. 17, but you can check out a sneak peek below:
