Greenville, SC - The Greenville Drive's Playcation promotion has proven to be a huge hit in the Upstate since its founding in 2011. The Drive's first playcation package of the 2014 season produced a sold out event on June 4th, including a Drive game attendance record of 7,176 fans. As a result of this early success, the Drive have been working with its Playcation partners to set another date for 2014.
The Drive, along with The Children's Museum of the Upstate, the Greenville Zoo and Greenville County Rec Waterparks and Pavilion, are pleased to announce that Wednesday, July 2nd will serve as the second date for the Playcation package in 2014.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer a second Playcation date for 2014 as the summer moves into full gear with the July 4th celebration," commented Drive General Manager Eric Jarinko. "We have worked tirelessly with our Playcation partners at The Children's Museum of the Upstate, the Greenville Zoo and Greenville County Rec Waterparks and Pavilion to create a family-friendly and affordable package for the summer, and the activities combined with the price make this an incredible opportunity for our fans."
The package includes four tickets to the Greenville Drive's game against the Asheville Tourists on Wednesday, July 2nd at 7:05, plus four passes to The Children's Museum of the Upstate, the Greenville Zoo and Greenville County Rec Waterparks and Pavilion, for just $40, a savings of $100!
The passes for the Upstate attractions can only be purchased from the Drive Box office and are valid from July 2nd through September 1st. The package must be purchased as a whole and all four tickets for the attractions must be used in one visit to each of the attractions.
"We're excited to be a part of the Playcation package" said Lisa Libertore, Director of Marketing and Sales for The Children's Museum of the Upstate. "Working together to create such a great package for families is very important to all of us. This promotion includes the very best attractions in the Upstate for an incredible price, offering value and savings that families are looking for as they head into summer. Not only do they get to make lasting memories, but they can make decisions about summer camps and value-based memberships that offer unlimited visits."
Jeff Bullock, Zoo Administrator for the Greenville Zoo, added, "The Playcation package cannot be beat because of the quality of the Upstate attractions and its affordability. All four of these attractions are already family-friendly and affordable, and we're proud to work together to create such a terrific value for families as summer approaches."
"With summer just around the corner, there's no better way for Upstate families to hit all of the best attractions in town, and we're glad to participate in the Playcation package with the Drive, The Children's Museum and Greenville Zoo again," said Ted Lambrecht, Special Use Facilities Manager for Greenville County Rec. "Families who have been to all of these attractions know what a terrific deal this is, and for those who have never been to these attractions, Playcation serves as a great introductory package for families looking for a fun time this summer."
