My wife used to work for a bank and they had their picnic at Kennywood. Another one day deal. The last time we went it was $16.00 with food on a Sunday. I believe regular price at that time was $24.95 for weekends. We only went twice because it allways seem to conflict with our wedding anniversary.
$8 for Waldameer and food. Thats great. Same with the Kennywood price. The best deal in the business is at Lakemont Park. If your group is more than 5000 with a catering package, they will give free ride all day privlidges. Thats a bargain. They actually do about 3 of those picnics.
At any major park the corporate ticket rate for catered events is usually around half price, and even lower for groups that are over 5000.
If your company is offering a ticket and catering package ticket, they are getting the best deal possible next to like a season passholder appreciation party.
To get the huge discount the company or organization has to guarantee a certain number of meals and admissions. The tickets are issued on a consignment basis, with a food head count so the park knows how much to cook, and settled up after the event.
So depending on the budget the company has for the event they'll offer some sort of subsidy. Even if they can cover the whole event most will add on like a $5 fee just so that people do take tickets and and blow it off the event and waste the company's money. *** Edited 6/28/2008 8:12:47 AM UTC by Cropsey***
Unfortunately, I had to postpone our trip, but I'm able to use the tickets for weekday admission thru Labor Day (or for $10 extra any weekend thru Labor Day weekend)...minus the food and drink...still a great deal for $15 a ticket!

We pay $9 for the all day pass. That includes the entry and all day riding (of course), a three hour buffet and either 4 or 5 hours of unlimited soft drinks. It's almost worth it sometimes for the buffet and drinks alone. Then you have the thrills on top of that. You just can't beat it. My children just love going every year and so do my wife and myself. If they ever stop doing the picnic i just might get upset!
