Are Starlight/Evening Tickets Dead?

10 years ago, it seems like most parks had an option to buy an evening-only ticket at a reduced price. This was an easy way to do a day-and-a-half trip to a park. However, I haven't really seen these tickets for years. Are evening tickets officially dead?

Hersheypark does one better than an evening discount ticket. They let you use your next day ticket to enter the park after a certain hour for free. They consider it a Preview pass.

But they also have a Sunset pass at a discounted price if you want to come a little earlier than the preview hour, but still not spend the entire day.

Pretty sure CF parks still have it too.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Not to mention the deep discounts on a second day ticket while in the park most places have. Six Flags used to call them "twickets" not sure if they still have them.

Dorney still offers it, 3:00 or 3:30 entry on an 8:00 closing and 5:00 entry on a 10:00 closing.

I remember the twickets. In the mid and late 90s, my family used to use Coke cans for B1G1 free admission to Great Adventure which was probably a little over $20 a person to get in after the B1G1 free and then buy a twicket for later in the season for around $9 or $10 so 2 trips to the park were around $30 a person. If they still offer them, they aren't advertised anywhere in the park.

Knoebels offers a Sundown Plan beginning at 5:00 that includes coaster and non-coaster options. They also have Bargain Nights, most every Wednesday and Friday between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Between 6 and 10PM, costs $9.00, $7.00 if you're under 48" tall. It doesn't include any of the coasters, Mansion, Skloosh, or Skyride, but $9.00 for basically every flat ride in the park isn't a bad deal.

When I went to Dollywood last month, we took advantage of their free next day offer, which was valid if you buy your one-day ticket after 3pm. One-and-a-half days for the price of one.

At $55, with no discounts in sight, it made the higher-than-usual admission price seem worth it.

Kennywood has them for after 5pm entry.
