WELLFORD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate animal park is lending a little relief in light of Hurricane Matthew blowing people off course.

Hollywild Animal Park will offer half-price admission on all tickets over the weekend to help those displaced by Hurricane Matthew.

The park plans to open as scheduled this weekend, and admission will be reduced on Saturday October 8 and Sunday October 9.

Regular adult tickets that cost $12 will be $6, tickets for students and those with military IDs will be marked down to $5 from their regular $10 and children's tickets will be marked down to $4 from $8 for the special.

Hollywild Animal Park executive director Kim Atchley said the weather won't get them down this weekend.

"The animals actually enjoy drizzly days and are often very playful," said Atchley.

She sympathized with evacuees and explained that the weekend discount was just for them.

"All of us understand that being out of your familiar routine and home have an impact.  We hope by reducing the cost to visit the Park, we're doing what we can to put some positive adventure into a challenging time," shared Atchley. 

Admission to Hollywild includes a self-guided walking park, scheduled Creature Feature Shows in the park's amphitheater and a guided Safari Bus ride.

Hollywild Animal Park is located at 2325 Hampton Road in Wellford, SC. For more information on the park's events and tours, visit their website.
