PEACH SPRINGS, ARIZ. (March 8, 2013) – Grand Canyon Resort Corporation/Grand Canyon West (GCRC) announced today the first of what will be an ongoing series of visitor discounts this year.

From March 15 through March 31, 2013, visitors can purchase Hualapai River Runners whitewater rafting trip tickets at 25 percent off the regular price. “That’s a savings of nearly $80,” said Dawnielle Tehama, Marketing Manager for GCRC. “This journey through the rapids of the Colorado River includes a hike with an experienced guide and information on the history and rich culture of the Hualapai people, as well as a smooth water ride viewing the towering canyon in an up-close-and-personal way. It’s the perfect opportunity for a one-of-a-kind spring break adventure, family outing, or corporate team-building event.”

The savings extend from the river’s edge to the canyon ledge. From now until April 15, 2013, at Grand Canyon West, children under age 11 are free with a paid adult admission for the Legacy Gold Package for the Grand Canyon Skywalk, when purchased through any Hualapai Tourism call center.

“This package gives visitors a Skywalk ticket to walk on the glass bridge over the Grand Canyon, a meal at the viewpoint of their choice, a gift shop voucher, hop-on-hop-off shuttle transportation to all viewpoints, visits to the Native American Village, tribal performances at the amphitheater, and countless other attractions,” said Tehama.
