One-of-a-Kind Interactive Attraction at Millcreek Mall

Erie, PA— The Millcreek Mall Complex is excited to announce the addition of a unique, one of a kind, interactive attraction to its list of amenities.  The attraction, called the Screen Play Interactive Network, featuring Captain McFinn and Friends is a children’s entertainment unit developed for families with children 3 to 8 years of age, providing endless activities, stories and fun.

The experience, essentially a “Virtual Aquarium”, is built around 90” HD Television screen(s) that stream a mixture of live and preprogrammed interactive thematic content.  The LIVE content features a real time streaming host, called an explorer, animation and interactive activities.

Nicole Adwell, Regional Marketing Director for Millcreek Mall stated, “We are very excited to have the Screen Play Interactive Network, featuring Captain McFinn and Friends at the Millcreek Mall.  It’s an innovative, interactive attraction and is just another way the mall is enhancing the overall shopper experience. This is an excellent opportunity for children, parents and families to visit the mall more frequently and spend more time in the center.”

You will find this new attraction in the Macy’s court, near Starbucks.  The Screen Play Interactive Network, featuring Captain McFinn and Friends is open daily from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on weekdays and 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekends. Check the mall’s club listing for additional information.

The Virtual Aquarium will be the centerpiece for a new children’s club set to launch at Millcreek Mall in the spring of 2016.  Club McFinn & Friends is inspired by the Captain McFinn & Friends book series.  Club McFinn & Friends will use the interactive learning capabilities of the Screen Play Interactive Network to teach children ages 3 to 7 positive social life lessons about sharing, kindness, bullying prevention and other important subjects.   To learn more about Captain McFinn & Friends and its associated educational programs, go to
