Big Surf Waterpark Deal of the Day   Groupon Phoenix

If you’re not busy early Friday morning, take the kids to Big Surf! They’re trying to break their own world record for the largest swim lesson.

World’s Largest Swimming Lesson – Friday, June 20!

Once again, Big Surf Waterpark is a host site for The World’s Largest Swim Lesson’s (WLSL) attempt to break the Guinness World Record for largest simultaneous swim lesson. This year, we will defend our own personal Guinness World Record as the hosting the most participants of any host site…we’re hoping to exceed 906 swimmers. Waterparks and pools around the globe will host a swim lesson and water safety class to spread the message that swim lessons can save lives! Admission is free to this event and we ask that everyone arrive no later than 7 a.m.”

If you’re there for the swim lesson, you can stay the entire day for free!


Heading up north this summer? Head over here to save 40 percent off tickets to Out of Africa. You’ll pay $10 for kids (usually $14.95) and $18 for adults (usually $29.95). The park is in Camp Verde, right on the way to or from Flagstaff. The place is amazing. A giraffe really will kiss you! Keep in mind that it’s much warmer there than Flagstaff, so you’ll want to bring lots of water!


When I did the last giveaway one of the questions to earn entries was “what has been your favorite Alicia’s Deal?” Far and away the winner was the POGO Pass. You can still head over here and get one for $39.98 with code ALICIA. It’s usually $99.95 and has a value of $1,500 if you go to all of the places you’re eligible for. This is an amazing deal, but what’s really telling is how much the pass holders love it after the sale. This is a great way to get your family to fun places all over town without breaking the bank. It’s like a discount on awesome family memories! We’re starting Camp Markham today and we’re going to visit as many places this week as we can, the kids are THRILLED! You’ll get into the zoo, D-backs games, Sunsplash (that almost pays for it itself), Jumpstreet, Stratum Laser Tag, Sea Life Aquarium, Rattlers games and lots more. It’s like a discount on lots of family memories!
