East coast trip help.

Monday, August 2, 2004 2:01 AM
We will be traveling to kennywood, dorney park, sfga, sfa, kd, bgw, hershey,knobels, conneaut lake, and williams grove park all in one trip in aug.

I have searched the web and cannot find any discount tix/discounts for the six flags parks, and hershey park. The other parks take aaa and ace discounts. We have a cp season pass to take care of dorney park.

Does anyone know of coupons/discount tix for hershey and six flags?

Also, any tips on these parks would be very helpful as we never been to any of the parks except dorney and kennywood.

Rather than trying to find the parks that offer AAA members a discount, buy your tix AT the local AAA offices. Nearly all AAA offices sell discount tickets for their local parks, and many sell discount tickets for any park. Good luck and enjoy the trip.

Actualy, the aaa by us only sells discount tix for the six flags in chicago, flordia parks and cp.

As we are from the detroit area.

What I meant was, go to the AAA office near each park...I did that for CP last year, and I do it for pretty much every other park I go to, although the AAA office near my new apartment (lived there just about a year now) sells tix for many parks across the country. *** Edited 8/2/2004 6:13:03 AM UTC by pete4winds***

I wonder if there is a way to get the tix threw our aaa branch somehow. *** Edited 8/2/2004 6:14:13 AM UTC by crazy horse***

Why not check the SF site itself for discounts?

SFA tickets are only $29.99 (print & go) vs. $36.99 at the gate.

SFGAdv tickets are $37.99 (print & go) vs. $45.99 at the gate.

I had a bunch of Hershey coupons that were something like $7 off, but they're long gone. I'd bet you can still find them easily locally.

For SFA, Safeway stores in the Washington area have discount coupons, not sure how much. I have lso seen discounts for Six Flags America on the sides of coke cans. If you call the park they could probably tell you where to get discount coupons. The number is (301)249-1500. The coke cans were cheaper than print-n-go. I think the price was $25.99.

For PKD, Blockbuster stores in the Washington area are selling discount TICKETS. *** Edited 8/2/2004 11:15:15 AM UTC by coasterguts***

Giant Food Stores in Central, PA sell Hersheypark discount tickets at the customer service counter in the store. It believe they are $10 off, but they may be more than that. Its been years since I have bought those.

One nice thing is you'll already have your ticket, and you can go in a prepurchased ticket line rather than waiting in the line to buy tickets.

Actualy, pkd offers ace discounts.........50% off ticket prices.

But the coke cans may help some.

I got in at PKD for a mere $21.99 on my july trip this year & had a blast(much better than at SFA on average)....a word of advice for PKD is to go for HS:XLC first instead of volcano.

You'll have much shorter lines just after opening than you will later in the day,your best bet at SFA is to head straight to Batwing & Superman first thing.

A good way to beat most of the crowds to these two coasters is when you get to the end of mainstreet turn left at flying carousel into nantucket/skull island,that'll put you right at the GC area.most folks turn right at FC into southwest territory & usually hit the two coasters(Wild one & Two face) over there first.

they have always had discount tickets at burger kings and mcdonalds for SFA and PKD at the counter.

I live in Gaithersburg (part of the DC area). I'm going to SFA wednesday.

Monday, August 2, 2004 2:50 PM
i don't know about Wendy's though.

And DEFINITELY go on Superman and Batwing FIRST THING at SFA, they always break down when it gets busy. Superman might be a walk-on if they are running two trains.

PKD is much nicer than SFA but my parents always get discounted tickets (i don't know how).

I am very excited about riding superman.

But due to slow loading time, should we go to batwing first and superman second?

Also, I found out that there is a aaa branch just 4/12 miles from dorney park. So we can get our tix there.

I apreciate all your help, anymore suggestions would be great.

thjank you.

I would hit the coasters in this order (if you don't mind doubling back):



Two Face

Wild One

Joker's Jinx


Mind Eraser (if you don't mind a rough coaster)

Typhoon Sea Coaster open around 12:30/1:00. You will want to be at this ride at 12:30 when it opens, the lines can get rather long.

The Country Music show in the Coyote Creek Saloon is good show to watch and eat lunch at (BBQ is pretty good). Diamond in the Rough is a pretty good show to watch for a late afternoon break (grab a cup of Ice Cream from the Ice Cream shop in Coyote Creek and watch this stunt show).

FYI... Here is the closest AAA to SFA, you may want to call and make sure they have tickets to SFA:

10412 Campus Way South
Upper Marlboro , MD 20774-1320
Phone: 301-345-7701

M-F Hours: 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
Sat. Hours: 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

I hope you have a good time.

Get a Coke can for SFA and SFGADV. By SFA there is a Wendies stop in there for PKD discounts.

if you want to ride coasters all day then head to gotham city first. Go Batwing, Superman, Joker's Jinx. Then go on the Tower of Doom. Then head to Two-Face and then The Wild One (don't put your hands up unless you want to slam the side while your in the air). Go over to Roar than Typhoon Sea Coaster and then go to Mind Eraser. Then spend time in Gotham City until about 8:15 or 8:20. The park closes at 9. Unless you want to ride Superman and Batwing til the end, and sometimes at the end they break down, go to Shipwreck Falls. If you hit it late at night, there is no line at all and you can just go 20 times in a row (make sure you bring a towel for the ride home). Sometimes the ride ops will let you stay on and not get off (although the bridge is kinda cool). Make sure you get a ride on Shipwreck Falls during the day, but sometimes on a hot day the line can be really long from about noon to the end of the afternoon (it'll die down in the evening and no one will ride it at night).

WARNING!: Rides tend to break down near the end (particularly superman and batwing.

i got aaa tickets from hersheypark so they are available, also check ebay for discounted tickets, because me and my cuz got a buy one get one free tickets on ebay for sfgadv for $7.

Just talked to highmeadow campground(hershey campground) and was informed that if you stay at the campground you get your hersheypark tickets for $10 off gate price.

Not a bad deal.

Plus we can take advantage of the sundown deal as well.

SFA closes at 10 pm unless they changed their schedule.

My agenda is as follows:I always start with superman(2 laps) then go to Batwing(the shake "n" break)& finally JJ on my way out of GC.

I then just hit whatever coaster I choose at my liesure,hitting the flats as I go & I avoid ME like the plauge.

Austin what've you got against hands up on Wild one?I ride hands up all the time & don't take a major beating.....I wish Roar would run as nicely as WO does.
