Discounts make dent in admission prices

Posted Thursday, April 26, 2001 4:34 AM | Contributed by Camel@Work

Despite the fact that amusement and theme park admissions are up by an average of $3 in the US, the Assoicated Press reports that the many available discount programs offset the cost.

Read the AP story on CNN.

Speaking of discounts....are there any really good offers on Disney and Universal tickets going on right now? I'm trying to find a place with coupons or discounts for the Orlando parks....any suggestions?

Lord Gonchar's avatar Disney is currently running a special for Florida residents. You can get a 4-day park hopper pass for $99 - you have until September 30th to use it and the only blackout day is July 4th. We just picked ours up on Sunday. You can get them at AAA, Disney store locations, ar at the gates at Disney.

Soggy's avatar I find it hard to believe that anyone pays the full admission price, even though I know many people do. There is almost always a coupon or discount available, if you look hard enough. Triple A offers at least a couple bucks off almost everything!

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

If you are even looking at this message, you must have a season pass somewhere! Six Flags gives you a huge coupon book when you get your season pass here in CA.

I think the entrance fee has gone up alot over the years as well as parking for instance since 97 the parking fee at SFGA in Nj has gone up every season onn dallor. now its at $10 and $13 for better parking i think alot of the Sixflags park abuse there privlages of having quest at there park and raise the parking as well as entrance fee. the entrance fee in 1997 in SFGA was around $38 now its at about $47.50 plus tax, thats insane when you can buy a season pass for about $70 i guess that is there way of getting more of our money. when wacthing a comershal they say why pay so much when in just 2 viset a season pass pays for itself i guess the proof is in the pudding!( buts it cool i own a season pass all the time and i am willing to pay the price for fun,Just cheaper)

It's not the park prices I'm concerned about. If the park is worth it, I'll pay. It's the PARKING!! What the heck are they thinking!?! Parking is rediculous! There should be some type of law on what an attraction can charge for people. Kennywood has the (if not, one of the)BEST ideas down if you want premium parking,pay, if not, then you might have to walk a little bit more, but it's FREE! Many parks should learn from this.

I buy a 60 dollar pass for Jazzland. Then I have to pay a 10 dollar proccesing fee. It still costs cash to park! But I had a season pass! Then I find out I have to get a "Parking Pass" for 20 bucks. New theme park motto
