“Reimagine Rush Hour” Campaign Takes Over Times Square

Listen to this article

In April, Delaware North collaborated with The New York State parks and historic sites system to promote Niagara Falls State Park via an experiential marketing campaign in Times Square.

Renowned as one of the busiest spots in the world, visitors to Times Square on 16th April were invited to slow down and take a breath by the campaign tagline, “Reimagine Rush Hour.”

The marketing activation was a one-hour takeover of “The Beast” video billboard promoting visitation to Niagara Falls, coupled with a double decker bus custom-wrapped with scenic photography and equipped with water misters to imitate the mist off the iconic falls.

The goal was to generate buzz, awareness and visitation to Niagara Falls State Park

Delaware North Parks and Resorts team members donned the well-known Maid of the Mist blue ponchos and yellow Cave of the Winds ponchos and encouraged passersby to enter a social media sweepstakes sharing their Niagara Falls moment with the hashtag #NiagaraStateOfMind – entering for a chance to win a trip for two to Niagara Falls State Park.

Under its contract with New York State Parks, Delaware North operates food, beverage, retail and other visitor services at Niagara Falls State Park, and additionally executes a marketing program for the park.

“The goal was to generate buzz, awareness and visitation to Niagara Falls State Park,” explains Catherine Leitner, vice president of marketing for Delaware North Parks and Resorts and Patina Restaurant Group. “We wanted to inspire passers-by to experience a little bit of ‘Niagara Falls in the City.’ Just a six-hour drive or a quick flight brings New York City dwellers back to nature and the wonder that is Niagara Falls.”

Leitner was also joined at Times Square by Scott Socha, group president for Parks and Resorts, Travel and Australia, Derek Zwickey, chief operating officer of the Parks and Resorts division, and Angela Berti, public affairs director for Niagara Falls State Park.

Times Square typically has some of the heaviest foot traffic in all of New York City and welcomes some 350,000 pedestrians daily from around the world.

The Times Square activation follows weeks of widespread national media exposure for Niagara Falls State Park leading up to hosting NASA for the total solar eclipse earlier this month.
