(WEST PALM BEACH, FL) Families looking to get the most out of their summer fun funds can find a bargain with the new Dual Discovery Pass. Launching today at the South Florida Science Museum and the Palm Beach Zoo, the Dual Discovery Pass offers Palm Beach County residents a 30 percent savings on entry prices to the two attractions when purchased together as one ticket. Out-of-county guests receive a 20 percent savings when purchasing a dual pass.
“The South Florida Science Museum and the Palm Beach Zoo are great neighbors,” said Lew Crampton, Museum CEO. “The Dual Discovery Passallows our two organizations tocollaborate to bring families to our shared destination inWest Palm Beach’s Dreher Park. While thesavings are our way of thanking Palm Beach County residents for their long history of support, we think families will love the idea of combining education and entertainment with lots of fun at one centralized area. “
Guests can purchase the dual discovery pass on-site at either location. The pass is nontransferable, but the buyer can use the pass for one full day of general admission at the Science Museum, and then use the same pass at the Zoo, weeks later, for another full day of general admission at that location.
“We know that guests can’t explore all that both attractions have to offer in just one day,” said Andrew Aiken, President and CEO, Palm Beach Zoo, “so the Dual Discovery Pass gives them the upfront savings and the flexibility of exploringeach attraction on its own to its very fullest. We launched the new combined ticket during the summer,as we know it will be a tremendous draw for families who want to get to both venues while the kids are out of school, but are also looking for ways to stretch their entertainment dollars. We have them covered now, with savings rain or shine!”
