Does anyone know where the inexpensive tickets are? I'm planning on going during Labor Day weekend, I know it my be crowded. I was just wondering if there are any locals who know of any place that sell them for cheap? I know the Parks and Recreation Dept. Sells tickets for cheap, but how would I go about that??

i said this before in another forum, but i highly recommend looking on ebay for discount tickets if you can't find anything cheaper. You will almost always find a good deal *** Edited 8/27/2005 3:57:52 AM UTC by TOPTHRILLDUFF***

Check their website, it sells tix way cheaper than at the park. For Paramount, you usually get 10-15 dollars off if you order online depending on the park.

Order online - that is the cheapest that I could find.

PKD has a good program with AAA, same with Busch.
I know Wendy's has discount coupons for Busch (or PKD, I keep forgetting), and some local food markets have discount tickets.

Subway has discount coupons for Busch Gardens as well. If you go to either park and pay full price for the tickets, you get a 2nd day free. That's a plus!

^What they said. lol.
That's what I like about fast food places. Usually one or more of them have coupons for a particular park in the area. Some gas stations have coupons as well. I got a couple of Hersheypark coupons one time at an Exxon nearby the park.
Visitors bureaus are always a good place, and any rest stops/travel plazas that are somewhat nearby the parks.
Heck we have Cedar Point, PKI, and Dollywood coupons here in Charleston at various fast foods and those parks are are all 3 1/2-5 hours from the city.

I still managed to find tickets for PKD at Blockbuster a few weeks ago. I found them in the back of the store, so your mileage may vary as far as to whether or not the tickets are still there or not. I believe the price was $31.99 w/tax.

If you're an ACE member, you get half priced PKD tickets with your membership card: http://www.aceonline.org/discounts/

BGW is practically giving away multi day passes at the moment too, a two day pass online is $65 (ie $15 more then a one day ticket) which gives you two (does not have to be consective) days at both BGW and Water Country. If you visit both parks both days that amounts to a $16.25 admission price per gate!
PS-Ill be hitting Williamsburg Sunday that weekend, cant wait, just moved to DC 2 weeks ago and havent been to BGW (my favorite non Disney park) in 5 years; but Ill be breaking in my brand new 2005-2006 Gold Pass :) *** Edited 8/29/2005 1:01:55 AM UTC by Touchdown***
