Kicks Off New Guest Perk with Naming Contest of Epic Proportions

Mystic, Conn. (April 5, 2018): On Saturday, April 7, Mystic Aquarium will begin offering free Wi-Fi to guests. The new service from provider Frontier Communications comes in conjunction with the opening of the Aquarium’s new exhibit, Jurassic Giants: A Dinosaur Adventure.  To celebrate, Mystic Aquarium is hosting the Jurassic Giants Wi-Fi Photo Contest.

“The guest experience is among our highest priorities here at Mystic Aquarium,” said Roslyn Gilhuly, Senior Vice President of External Relations, “and free Wi-Fi provides the immediate access that is so important to our guests.”

The Aquarium hopes that visitors will take this opportunity to engage more readily with the Mystic Aquarium app as well as social media channels for further interaction with the facility, its exhibits and animals.

Guests are encouraged to use the new complimentary Wi-Fi to enter the Jurassic Giants Wi-Fi Photo Contest by simply snapping a photo of their Jurassic Giant experience beginning this Saturday and uploading photos to  Photos will be shared to Mystic Aquarium’s official Facebook page.

The photo with the most “likes” will win the opportunity to name the Tyrannosaurus rex.

The contest ends at 9am on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. The winner will be notified by email.

“The ability to offer this perk goes beyond just a good time,” said Gilhuly. “The ability to more actively engage with guests while they are on our campus helps create a positive experience and connection to the animals and exhibits. It is these connections that foster ocean stewardship of children and families.  And, that is crucial to our mission here at Mystic Aquarium.”

Jurassic Giants will take guests back in time to encounter breathing, clawing, roaring dinosaurs that come to life! Guests will travel through an indoor dinosaur trail featuring 12 giant animatronic dinosaurs including favorites like StegosaurusTriceratops and, of course, the famous Tyrannosaurus rex
