ENTER FOR CHANCE TO WIN A TRIP TO AUSTRALIA
DURING THE EXPERIENCE OR AT FOX.COM/TERRANOVA/SWEEPSTAKES
TERRA NOVA Premieres Monday, September 26, on FOX
Just like those who traveled previously to Terra Nova, fans can apply now to be a part of the Eleventh Pilgrimage to TERRA NOVA, the next voyage of the extraordinary global effort to save the human race. The Eleventh Pilgrimage lottery launches today at liveterranova.com, a social-enabled website where fans can test their qualifications and enter the lottery for the next trip to Terra Nova.
Fans can join the experience by logging in with their Facebook ID and then submitting to a “retinal scan” sequence. Once the participant’s identity is verified, he/she will be asked to select six Facebook friends as potential team members for the next pilgrimage. Ambitious applicants will begin with an individual psychological evaluation where they will be tested on mental and emotional acumen that generate results instantly. Because “a family is four,” three Facebook friends will be eliminated after this first exercise. Subsequent weekly assessments, beginning September 5, will test endurance, recall and dexterity, each of which could result in the elimination of an additional friend from the lottery. Additionally, users can check the site regularly for updates, including news reports on the dire conditions of 2149.
In addition, the “Journey to TERRA NOVA” interactive fan experience is currently on the road traveling to 20 markets around the U.S. this summer and early fall. This branded, solar-powered bus features an interactive video green screen, where fans can digitally insert themselves into a scene from the series and then share it with friends via social media outlets by visiting www.journeytoterranova.com. Visitors to the mobile experience can watch an exclusive sneak peek of the show, relax while enjoying a futuristic oxygen bar and receive limited-edition TERRA NOVA Pilgrimage Badges and other collectibles.
