The “Greater Escape” giveaway was created to appeal to four types of adventure seekers. Those adventure categories within the giveaway include Outdoor Adventure, Romantic Getaway, Rapid Escape and Family Vacation, all with three levels of prizes. As the Facebook page gains “Likes”, prizes will be unlocked and awarded at random to fans who have entered within each category, at pre-determined levels of fan growth.
