WITH most school’s just weeks away from closing for the 2011-2012 academic year, TEENs around the island are on the edge of their seats, waiting for a grand opportunity to let loose.

For the second year running, fast food franchise Burger King and marine park Dolphin Cove have made achieving this desire a lot closer to becoming a reality with their exciting promotional package.

For the next three months, children between ages six and 11, on the purchase of any children’s meal from a Burger King outlet in Jamaica, will receive a free ticket to the park — applicable at the Ocho Rios and Negril compounds — that will be valid until the end of October.

According to the family-oriented attraction, the idea came about last year as they sought opportunities to increase the interest in the park, subsequently; collaboration with Burger King provided an ideal pairing as they boast the biggest appeal for kids.

What TEEN would not want the opportunity to visit Dolphin Cove?

The attraction provides the only chance for us to experience the amazing feeling of being close to such a huge and gentle animal (the dolphins) in a serene environment.

While the tickets do not cover the expense of swimming with the dolphins, being kissed by the animal is free of cost. In addition to the dolphin, the park also hosts stingrays, sharks and camels are exclusively hosted at the Negril complex.

Last season’s promotion lasted for only a month, and during that time over 23,000 vouchers were distributed with many of them being put to good use.

The target for this summer’s promotion is 75,000 vouchers and that objective is deemed as realistic by the operators of the Caribbean’s largest marine attraction as the promotion will run for much longer.

The promotion will save parents $1,900 on the usual entry fee for each child, while their own cost will be cut by a third to $2,009.
