Discount theme park tickets will once again be available at all State Employees' Credit Union (SECU) branches through its continued partnership with the State Employees Association of North Carolina (SEANC).

From mid-April through the end of September, SECU and SEANC members can visit any of SECU's 236 branches statewide to purchase discount tickets to area attractions including Carowinds, Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens, Myrtle Waves, NASCAR Speedpark and Pavilion Nostalgia Park in Myrtle Beach.

The credit union has been offering this seasonal benefit for nearly 10 years and it continues to be extremely popular with the membership, a news release said. Despite a struggling economy, sales have remained strong, reaching a record high $3.1 million in 2010.

"We are happy to be working with SEANC to provide discount tickets that represent a good value for our members," said Leigh Brady, senior vice president of SECU's education services department. "We realize with ongoing economic challenges that many families are opting for vacations closer to home. Being able to purchase tickets to area parks at a budget-friendly price is extremely helpful to those families and we are glad to offer this service."

Kevin LeCount, SEANC member strength director, added, "SEANC is excited to partner with State Employees' Credit Union again this year to sell discount theme park tickets. With SECU's convenient locations, it is a great benefit for our members to be able to purchase the tickets at their local branch and save money."
