Great advice, especially with the local fast foods/retail outlets. I advise people visiting any park (who don't have season passes) to check out the local establishments for discounts. They are not hard to find. Even if it's a coupon for $9-$10 off an adult admission at least that will pay for your parking. :-)
I am always collecting coupons for friends, cause I hate seeing people pay full gate price. YIKES!
Gimme speed, height, airtime and plenty of LAUNCH!!!

Thanks for the link. Not a bad article at all. I always check local supermarkets and fast-food places for coupons, if I have time.

They missed a few though.
1) Employers often get super discount coupons for area parks. These are frequently far better discounts than those on coupons at retail outlets.
2) Check with area parks and recreation departments. They often have special deals.
3) Go with a season pass holder who has special discount coupons.
4) Join a coaster club. Some parks offer great discounts for club members.

Not bad info, but I get season passes to cedar point and six flags parks because I go to so many parks each year.

Even just hopping in the car and heading out to parks you have never been before without searching for discounts can still have its fortunes. My daughter and I did a trio-park trip consisting of PKI, SFKK, and HW.
We stayed at a hotel near PKI and got tickets for the park at the hotel for $35.00 a piece which included going to the park in the evening the first day , and hitting the park the next day. Also got $2 off the parking fee.
SFKK was a given to be free because we have SF passes. The parking was only $4 thanks to the lot being run by the Kentucky State Fair.
HW: Parking is free, a Pepsi can discount for my daughter's admission and my Coasterbuzz Club card produced deep discount admission.
Just spur of the moment discounts pop up sometimes. :)

If you check on the net for a certain park there are usually sites where you can be pointed to the right direction as to where to find discount coupons or just ask on here, that way your not driving all over by a park to find them. You just have to do your homework before planning a trip, its amazing how cheap you can make an amusement park trip.
