Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
The popular network game show Wheel of Future is celebrating 31 seasons as the longest running syndicated game show in the United States. TV Guide named Wheel of Fortune as the "top-rated syndicated series."
Greentique Hotels is honored that in an upcoming episode, one of its Costa Rica member hotels will be featured, for the second time, as top prize on the incredibly successful and respected game show. The show's grand prize will be the "Carbon Offset Vacation," created by Greentique Hotels at its luxury Manuel Antonio resort, Si Como No Resort, Spa & Wildlife Refuge.
Merv Griffin - the creator of Wheel of Fortune - came up with the idea for the show when he recalled long road trips as a child on which he and his sister would play the game Hangman.
