Last week I introduced you guys to the Ride and Drive experience and what to expect if you ever had the chance to come across one of these. I mentioned that you’ll likely be seeing these pop up in your respective cities soon and I’m happy to share that Kia has officially partnered with LakePoint to bring these events to the Atlanta travel sports communities!
LakePoint Center in Cartersville, GA is on track to become one of the largest and most unique destinations for travel sports. A few weeks ago, I attended a National Cheerleading competition and this past week, it was the destination for both the Spring Into Summer Beach Volleyball Tournament as well as a Basketball Tournament in the Lakepoint arena.
A welcome break from the norm
Parents of competitive athletes all know what it’s like at these events – lots of waiting around and down time as you wait for your team’s turn to play, in addition to some tension and stress usually. The Kia Ride and Drive booths offer an opportunity for guests to not only relax and recharge (literally recharge your phones, ipads, etc), but also a chance to experience the exhilaration of slipping behind a brand new set of wheels and taking a ride around the neighborhood. Whether you’re a car aficionado or not, you get a chance to experience one of the brand new Kia vehicles in a non-salesy environment.
All of the latest Kia vehicles are present for these Ride and Drive event and as long as you have a valid driver’s licence (and pass the breathalyzer), you can find behind the wheel of the car or cars you want. The super friendly Kia representatives are also there to give you a walk through of all of the latest features on the vehicles and answer any questions you have.
Oh yeah, and a little incentive never hurts either. This past weekend, they were giving out a free gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods, but this changes with each event.
Again, there are several Ride and Drive events happening all around the country, but if you’re in the Atlanta area or taking part in an upcoming event at LakePoint, be sure to look out for the Kia booth for the ultimate ride and drive experience!
