The final weeks – or maybe week – of summer vacation is here, and whether you’ve run out of ways to pass the time or are looking to return to an old favorite, GreatLIFE can help.

Along with spending plenty of time on the golf course or in one of the fitness center pools, members save on admission at lots of summer destinations.

Here are seven ideas for how you can use your membership to extend summer with family and friends while saving along the way!

Great savings at Great Plains Zoo

Summer is an ideal time to enjoy the Great Plains Zoo – especially this year with its new Australia exhibit! Jump with kangaroos, feed tropical lorikeets and make plenty of photo-ops along the way. GreatLIFE members receive half-price admission Mondays and 25 percent off every other day. Annual memberships are 20 percent off too.

Lunch at Firehouse

Did you know your GreatLIFE membership gets you $2 off any medium or large value meal at Firehouse Subs? It’s a tasty and easy way to feed your family on the go!

Thunder Road fun

There are so many ways to use your GreatLIFE membership for a day of family fun at Thunder Road. Receive two free ride tickets on Thursdays – only one ticket can be on the Tilt-A-Whirl, Water Wars or Laser Maze.

You also can receive one free ticket for those attractions on any day the amusement park is open.

And enjoy a two-hour wristband for $20 Monday through Thursday plus miniature golf for $2.50 per round those same days.

Free golf

And speaking of golf, it’s true: You can golf for free with your membership at Central Valley in Hartford and Rocky Run in Dell Rapids on Mondays and Tuesdays. They’re both fun courses for families – so play a round or just a few holes on a mini-staycation just outside Sioux Falls.

Canaries outing

Every Wednesday, Canaries games are free for GreatLIFE members. You’ve still got a couple left this season, so mark the calendar!

Indoor options

When the forecast doesn’t cooperate – or you just want to cool off – GreatLIFE offers plenty of indoor fun.

You can jump for half-price admission on Tuesdays at Sky Zone Trampoline Park, and receive $3 off all jump packages Wednesday through Friday.

One parent per child also can jump for free with the purchase of a jump package Tuesday through Friday.

And if you haven’t stopped by the Washington Pavilion, you’ve got to check out its latest attractions. From getting up close to dinosaurs to setting your budding artist free to create, there are tons of ways to enjoy the final days of summer vacation – and plenty of visits the rest of the year too.

GreatLIFE members receive half-price admission on Sundays and 20 percent off annual memberships.
