If you’re a fan of The King, Elvis Presley, and you’re lucky enough to have a trip booked to visit his Graceland mansion in Memphis anytime soon, then you might be interested to learn that Elvis Presley Enterprises has announced today that it is revolutionising the historic home tour experience at Graceland by introducing an interactive multimedia iPad tour.
The tour, which is narrated by actor and big Elvis fan John Stamos, started last week as part of the Elvis Week 2014 celebrations, and was apparently very popular with the visiting fans.
This new addition to the tour makes Graceland one of the first major attractions in the U.S. to offer an iPad to every guest on the tour. The iPads use iBeacon technology to trigger location-based content that lets visitors learn and experience even more about the life of Elvis, via audio, video and photos from the Graceland Archives, much of it rarely seen until now.
A separate iPad youth tour has also been introduced, a customised experience for kids and tweens, also via iPad, with interactive photo activities designed specifically with the younger visitor in mind.
