“We are incredibly excited to continue our partnership with Syracuse University and bring back the Winter Fun Pass with more excitement and value than ever before,” said Aiden McGuire, director of marketing, Destiny USA. “Both Destiny USA and Syracuse University continue to attract tourists to Destiny USA and Central New York. In fact, more than 60% of Fun Pass sales come from greater than 50 miles away and 74% come from outside of Onondaga County. Simply put, there’s never been a better way for visitors to experience Central New York’s top attractions for one low price this winter.”

“This exciting partnership once again brings together two of the state’s top destinations for entertainment,” said Anthony Di Fino, associate athletics director for business development, Syracuse University. “The Winter Fun Pass has been an incredible value, and adding an admission to one of seven Syracuse Orange men’s basketball games and one of four Syracuse Orange women’s basketball games makes it even better. Tourists will experience the magic of the Carrier Dome and one of the best college basketball teams in the country right here in Central New York.”

“We are proud of the collaborative efforts of Destiny USA and Syracuse University to grow the Central New York tourism economy,” said Visit Syracuse President & CEO Danny Liedka. “They have invested a great deal of resources and effort, globally, to attract international travelers over the past few years.
