Fanta has launched an outdoor virtual reality experience for Halloween, supported by a Snapchat campaign.
The experience, in which an elevator car crashes to the ground, will be shown at Thorpe Park and Westfield Stratford every day until 1 November, and in East London until 29 November.
Guests will be invited to enter the elevator and ride to the 13th floor to attend a Halloween party, with scary surprises awaiting them on their journey.
To support activity in-store, Fanta has also launched limited edition packaging with spooky graphics by Israeli designer Noma Bar.
The packs feature a QR code that can be scanned to access branded Snapchat filters and lenses – which include the likes of a China Doll shedding tears of Fanta (see example below).

The Coca-Cola-owned brand has also enlisted influencers to recreate the Snapchat filters using make-up and costumes.
The move marks the brands biggest ever investment in Halloween, which also includes digital out-of-home ads and in-store visuals.
Rosalind Brown, Marketing Manager at Coca-Cola Great Britain, said: “Halloween is a fast growing sector in the UK and this is largely driven by millennials – Fanta’s key demographic – making it the perfect occasion to engage with our fans. We know that experiences are of the utmost value to millennials and so using platforms like VR and Snapchat allows our fans to create relevant and exciting experiences and then share them online.”
