In addition to a high-tech, game-time show, a special "goal light” will celebrate each Kraken scoring point during a night game. Through the use of Sportsdata.io, a sports data provider and AWS technology, the lighting will be in sync with the Kraken's real-time events.
The light show will debut during the first Kraken home game on Saturday, Oct. 23 when the Vancouver Canuks visit Climate Pledge Arena, and will play at every evening home game thereafter.
“We’re thrilled to relight the arches with a new state-of-the-art, cloud-based system that enables this collaboration with the Seattle Kraken," Will Daugherty, president and CEO of Pacific Science Center, said in the release. "This is an exciting step forward in PacSci’s continued renewal and renovation. Our work with AWS allows us to leverage the power of the cloud to participate in the celebration among all Kraken fans of the team’s first season. We’re excited about the possibilities, and this is just the beginning.”aside">
Like other iconic landmarks at the Seattle Center, the Pacific Science Center arches were built for the 1962 World’s Fair. Local architect Minoru Yamasaki constructed the five 132-foot arches to be seen throughout the city of Seattle.
The Monorail, another relic of the World's Fair, recently unveiled major upgrades in anticipation of Climate Pledge Arena's grand opening. The new completed features give the monorail the capacity to carry 6,000 passengers per hour, reducing traffic congestion near Climate Pledge Arena during major events.MORE SEATTLE NEWS:
