An 18 metre mobile museum will give Olympics fans the chance to take part in a hands-on Olympic experience this weekend.
The Samsung Experience Truck will be at Bayfair Shopping Centre from 9am to 4pm on Sunday, giving visitors a unique look at the history of New Zealand’s participation in the Olympic Games.
The Samsung Experience Truck will be at Bayfair on Sunday.
The mobile museum experience, which takes approximately 20 minutes, will give shoppers and sports fans an opportunity to learn about their favourite Kiwi athletes and discover New Zealand’s proud Olympic history.
The truck features digital interactive technology and uses the latest Samsung equipment to get visitors involved in the exciting lead-up to the London 2012 Olympics.
Visitors can also experience their own Olympic dream by adorning themselves with a replica gold medal or running with an Olympic torch to the sound of a cheering crowd.
Bayfair marketing manager Nina Rivett says the truck is part of Bayfair’s celebration of the Olympics and their way of supporting the local athletes taking part.
“It’s fantastic for them to get an angle on a major sporting event.”
Nina says based on the success of last year’s 3D Rugby World Cup Bus, the truck should attract quite a crowd.
“From our point of view, it’s just great that we can provide a venue for people to come and learn a little bit more.
“Even though we’re on the other side of the world, we can still enjoy it and we can still support out athletes.”
The Samsung Experience Truck is in conjunction with Sport Bay of Plenty and will be parked in the front car park near Coffee Club.
