Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame Enhances Starting Lineup of Exhibits with Two New Cutting-Edge Experiences

January 15, 2020 GMT

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2020--

Two new interactive exhibits just debuted at the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame, including the Goodyear Blimp Exhibit, featuring an AR airship experience and the upgraded Kia Performance Challenge, offering fans the opportunity to see how their football skills measure up. The new additions join the Hall’s lineup of more than 50 captivating and engaging exhibits and provide hands-on activities combined with innovative technology to immerse fans in the college football experience.

“As the home of college football, we are constantly looking for new ways to connect with fans and offer them a state-of-the-art experience. These new exhibits will give fans a new perspective and appreciation for the game,” said Dennis Adamovich, CEO of the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame. “Our partners Goodyear and Kia are proud supporters of college football, helping us bring fans these new experiences.”

Goodyear Blimp Exhibit

Step inside the Goodyear Blimp Exhibit for a “blimp’s eye view” of game day. Watch aerial footage from 40 marquee games and historical blimp-worthy moments, participate in an AR experience operating the blimp camera on game day and snap a photo from the pilot’s seat outfitted with a replica dashboard.

Kia Performance Challenge

See how your football skills measure up at the Kia Performance Challenge. Complete a virtual 40-yard dash and jump to record your vertical leap in front of a 75-inch monitor that displays an avatar of the action. Results are tracked on a daily leaderboard displaying the top five individual performances and their school.

Celebrating five years in Atlanta, the Hall will add a third new interactive exhibit to the building in early 2020.
