Amazon Prime Video has recently turned to experiential marketing to promote its original series, with activations including a pop-up museum in New York for Modern Love and an apocalypse-themed space for Good Omens at SXSW. To promote its latest original film, the streaming service has created a traveling carnival straight out of the 19th century complete with hot air balloon rides.

The Aeronauts’ Incredible Journey is a cross-country fan experience set in 1862 to promote The Aeronauts, a semi-biographical drama about the ballooning journey of real weather scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) and fictional pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones).
