By using the "Proclaim Your Spirit of the Pride Land" augmented reality feature on the microsite, guests are invited to a one-of-a-kind Lion King event, coming to a city near them.
Sidewalk Takeover
The Lion King on Broadway is introduced to Atlanta by a series of footprints from animals that hail from the pride lands.
 
These footprints will progress over the course of a week, gradually taking over the sidewalk and leading curious explorers to The World of Coke (the official drink of Broadway) where an exclusive Lion King event will soon be held.

Event

Chosen for it's resemblance to Pride Rock and affiliation to Broadway, The World of Coke (ATL) would host  the Lion King event, allowing all attendees to "witness the birth of a king". Guests would locate the footprints which correlated to their personal "Spirit of the Pride land" persona, on one of  four light-up dance pads.

By activating the pads, speakers would begin to play music from the Broadway show. The more interaction with the pads, the louder guests would hear music. Once the volume has reached it's peak, a magnificent lightshow will be activated, projecting itself upon the building.
