Audio Transcript: Summer Fun Pass Wrap
By Malika-Budur Kalila SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Last month, Destiny USA started its Summer Fun Pass program, offering visitors more options this year. Through the program, people can pick any four activities out of 29 provided venues, including attractions and restaurants. The price of the ticket for adults is 50 dollars, while children pay 40 dollars. Both tickets are valid until September 3rd.
Compared to last year, there are several venue additions such as Funny Bone Comedy Club, Burger King, and Cold Stone Creamery. Also, each Fun Pass ticket includes bonus admissions to the Great New York State Fair, Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Syracuse University Football and the Syracuse Chiefs.
Marketing Assistant Director Joanne Villegas said that these free admissions give citizens and guests an opportunity to explore the city. “We want people to not just come to Destiny USA and enjoy here, we want them to also experience Syracuse, the best of Syracuse,” she said.
This year, Destiny USA opened its Embassy Suites Hotel, which is about 100 steps away from the mall. According to Villegas, the hotel attracted more international visitors for Fun Pass, including guests from Canada and international students from around the world.
“We want people to be able to try all of different things at Destiny USA, ” Villegas said. “The whole purpose for it is really to get people to come here, give them great discount and great experience.”
