Hollywood Wax Museum Celebrates Grand Opening with Triple Treat Local Appreciation Weekend
Admissions to be Donated to Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains
PIGEON FORGE, TENN. (OCT. 18, 2012) - The three newest attractions in Pigeon Forge are hosting a Triple Treat Local Appreciation Weekend, benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains. From Friday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Oct. 28, people who live or work in Sevier County can experience the Hollywood Wax Museum, Castle of Chaos, and Hannah's Maze of Mirrors for $10 per adult and $5 per child (ages 4-11), with 100% of the admissions going to the local Boys & Girls Club.
"We believe in giving back to the communities where we have attractions," says Tej Sundher, a partner in the family business that owns and operates the landmark facilities on the hill at Showplace and Parkway.
"The Boys & Girls Club is a healthy, positive place for kids to do homework and activities and to develop friendships and confidence that will last a lifetime. The services they provide are priceless, and we are happy to do what we can to support them," says Sundher.
According to Boys & Girls Club Chief Professional Officer, Mark Ross, "If you've been curious to see what's inside that building with the huge ape on the tower and what's happening in the giant castle next door, October 26-28 is the time to check it out. The funds we receive from donated admissions will help guide kids in Sevier County to become productive, caring and responsible citizens."
While the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center offers a Local Appreciation rate of 50% off year-round, the facility is extending the lower Triple Treat price during this particular weekend to celebrate its official Grand Opening and to raise as much as possible for the Boys & Girls Club.
Residents and employees of companies in Sevier County will be asked to show valid local IDs or current paystubs to purchase the special Triple Treat Local Appreciation admissions. The trio of fun-filled attractions will be open from 9 am to 11 pm on all three days.
The Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center, open 365 days a year, is located at 106 Showplace Boulevard, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. For more information, call (865) 428-5228 or visit www.hollywoodwaxentertainment.com or www.facebook.com/hollywoodwaxmuseum.
