Bold kids looking for adventure are featured in new campaign for Universal Parks & Resorts

The kids featured in the new ‘Grow Bolder’ campaign for Universal Parks & Resorts are ready to take off the training wheels and go on adventures.

The national brand campaign for Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood showcases Universal theme parks as destinations for kids who are ready to take the next step and up their vacation quotients.

Created in partnership between Universal Parks & Resorts and David&Goliath, the campaign features a cinematic, black and white spot featuring kids who are empowered and eager to stand on their own, speak for themselves and boldly take on the respective parks.

We see a young wizard in Harry Potter’s world ready to wave a wand, plus a kid who isn’t afraid to venture in with the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, or wield a ray gun with Minions, go face to face with King Kong or save the planet with Transformers.

“This campaign captures the essence of what we offer our guests every day,” said Alice Norsworthy, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Universal Parks & Resorts. “Our theme parks offer the kind of vacation experiences that allow families to vacation together and to grow together.”

Added David Angelo, founder and chairman of David&Goliath: “Now more than ever kids are growing up fast, and we wanted to be a part of that growth. But instead of telling kids ‘you don’t have to grow up,’ we let them speak for themselves. We see fearless kids boldly challenging themselves in the most cinematic way. And we show that what you experience at Universal Parks is more than a day of smiles, it’s a chance to truly grow in ways beyond what you imagined.”

Throughout the campaign, Universal Parks & Resorts and David&Goliath will introduce new initiatives and creative on all platforms from social to digital to ambient, all amplifying the brand’s ‘Grow Bolder’ message to kids and families around the world.

The spot airs during the last week of the Winter Olympics on NBC and its affiliates.
