Fans Can Take A Virtual Tour For An Exclusive Look Behind the Scenes
DES MOINES, IA – The Iowa Wild, proud American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild, announced on Tuesday, a new and innovative Virtual Tour Experience, one of the first of its kind in all of minor league sports.
In a partnership with AVS Concepts, the Iowa Wild brings the newest technology in fan entertainment to central Iowa with the creation of the Interactive Virtual Tour experience. Fans may join the Iowa Wild for a one-of-a-kind interactive virtual tour at Wells Fargo Arena, the home of the AHL club. The unique arena tour lasts approximately 45-60 minutes. The behind-the-scenes tour includes: stops in the locker room during intermission, on-ice 360-degree views of player introductions, as well as puck drops at center ice with the captains of each team, and in-seat experiences, such as sitting on the glass for celebratory goals. The tour specializes in educating fans on the sports of hockey and the benefits of becoming an Iowa Wild season ticket holder.
“AVS is proud to partner with the Iowa Wild and be a part of a new cutting-edge experience, which provides hockey fans in the Greater Des Moines area a unique behind-the-scenes look into the hockey world,” said AVS Concepts Head of Business Development Nate McCombs.
The tour requires fans to wear virtual reality headgear and custom-branded Iowa Wild headphones, which fans may take with them upon departure. Fans may take a virtual tour of the arena for just $10, with the money going towards a new season ticket membership if they decide to purchase a membership to Wild365 – the Iowa Wild’s exclusive club for season ticket holders. Tour times and availability are limited. Those interested are encouraged to contact the Iowa Wild front office by calling 515-564-8700 or by visiting www.iowawild.com/VR.
