The fun of Legoland’s new Ninjago World begins before riders even get to the ride. Outside, by the dragons built of Lego bricks, are Ninja training stations where kids can practice spinning or rock climbing. At Jay’s Lightning Drills station, where reflexes are tested, the dads are having as much fun as the kids — lights flash and they slap the buttons as fast as they can.
The latest Florida theme park attraction to open is a remake of an old one: SeaWorld’s Kraken roller coaster with a virtual reality plug-in. It’s a major makeover for SeaWorld’s oldest coaster, but it doesn’t involve any changes to the track. The coaster, closed since mid-April while the park installed virtual reality equipment, reopened Friday as the first virtual reality ride at a major Florida theme park. Guests can choose whether to use the virtual reality headset.
Unlike some of the rides created with cutting-edge technology that have been introduced in Orlando the last few years, Jimmy Fallon’s new attraction at Universal Studios, which uses 3D projections and motion simulator technology, has a comfortable familiarity. Which isn’t to say Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon isn’t a fun ride — it is. And if you’re a fan of his “Tonight Show,” you’ll love the way his shticks, characters and fellow cast members pop in and out of the action.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
