The Great Piggy Bank Adventure, Presented by T. Rowe Price, opens tomorrow, May 19, bringing basic saving and investing concepts to life in a fun and captivating way through a live, first-of-its-kind interactive experience at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot. It features a series of entertaining games that bring to life and teach key financial themes of setting goals, saving and spending smartly, staying ahead of inflation, and diversifying your investments. Guests visiting the attraction are accompanied by a talking piggy bank who offers guidance and education to reinforce the lessons and help them reach their goal.
The Great Piggy Bank Adventure opens at a time when it has never been more important or timely for families to talk about saving and investing. This interactive financial education and entertainment experience will help empower parents to start or continue the conversation while also providing them with “teachable moments” they can use to impart sound financial values and habits to their children.
The financial lessons also come to life through an online, virtual board game version of The Great Piggy Bank Adventure. Available at www.thegreatpiggybankadventure.com, this stand-alone experience explores the investing themes in more depth. Complete with trivia cards and interspersed with interactive “mini-games,” the online game takes players on a journey through three levels as the financial decisions become progressively harder.
A separate T. Rowe Price Family Center website (www.troweprice.com/familycenter) serves as a gateway to The Great Piggy Bank Adventure experiences and features personal stories from parents who are passing on sound financial values and habits to their children.
