DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 11, 2008) – With a suspect economy forcing more and more families to enjoy “staycations” rather than vacations, Daytona 500 Experience, “The Official Attraction of NASCAR,” and Daytona Lagoon, “Daytona’s Year Round Family Fun Center,” have teamed up to create a two-park ticket called the “Daytona Power Pack.”
The “Daytona Power Pack” offers admission to Daytona Lagoon and Daytona 500 Experience with significant savings. The combo ticket is $32 plus tax and is valid for one admission to Daytona 500 Experience and one admission to Daytona Lagoon. The ticket is good for six months to either admission and may be used at the dry or wet park of Daytona Lagoon. Daily adult admission to Daytona 500 Experience is $24 (plus tax) while admission to Daytona Lagoon is $27.99.
“What a great way to experience both attractions right here in your own backyard,” said Daytona 500 Experience General Manager Kim Isemann. “With many families postponing or cancelling destination vacations because of economic conditions, this partnership provides an affordable opportunity to experience these local attractions at a reasonable price.”
Said Joe Jenkins, General Manager of Daytona Lagoon: “Daytona Lagoon is extremely excited to take part in such a spectacular offer. This combo ticket will make staying at home for families a bit more enjoyable and help double the fun rather than double the stress.” Daytona 500 Experience is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. while Daytona Lagoon is open Sunday-Thursday 10a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to midnight. The Water Park is currently closed for the 2008 season and will reopen March 2009.
