We will be taking a trip to Dallas and are going to to SFOT. Does anyone know where we can get discount coupons or of any discount promotions(like on pop cans, etc) they have.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Wow...I live in a suburb of Chicago and even did a stint in Chicago and I have always said "soda". I just don't like being given a Pepsi when I clearly say Coke. Some places just sub a Pepsi like that around here...lol
Midwest is not Pop. South is Coke. Midwest and midamerica is soda, and the U.P. (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and far far north (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) is Pop. *** Edited 7/12/2006 2:35:18 AM UTC by MAGXL200***
In fact rollergator I'm kind of offended that you say midwesterners say Pop becuase I am from Wisconsin and I can't stand when i hear people say Pop (such as people from the U.P.) *** Edited 7/12/2006 2:37:00 AM UTC by MAGXL200***
SFoGswim.. you stole the words out of my mouth. I grew up in Ohio saying pop, and when I moved to Texas, no one knew what I was talking about.
Call it Soda... and GOD FORBID you to call it coke? Why, because it's not Coke if it's Pepsi, now is it? No...
And I know that my Local (Austin Area) McDonalds had Six Flags Cupons, I honestly don't know if those were for SFFT or SFOT. I'd assume that you go eat at Sonic or McDonalds before you go. Assuming you live in an area that has a Sonic. Which, if you do, get their Milk Shakes ;-)
Pop=Western PA which I guess can be considered Midwest.
I'll admit, I'm not too crazy hearing people refer to it as "soda" (I think of soda as the stuff the 3 Stooges would spray out of a dispenser), but why is it that soda people get so bent out of shape when they hear "pop".
its all good rollergator I was just being dramatic to make the point. Anyways though, the SFGAm site has advertising on the bottom and I think there are things like water and oranges, which offer discounts. You might want to try checking that out.
What part of Wisconsin are you from? "Soda" seems to be prevalent in southern Wisconsin, but "pop" seems to be the preferred term in northern Wisconsin and the Twin Cities. Then again, I'm living in a place where they refer to drinking fountains as "bubblers," so the soda/pop debate isn't my primary concern. :)
It's really strange how there are "pockets" within the same state that call it something different. In Iowa City (IA) (university town) most people say "soda." If you go 25 miles up I-380 to Cedar Rapids, they all say "pop."
Check out the Papa Johns Pizza website. They sometimes have admission discounts there also.
Having been to numerous statewide events in Ohio, we are a mixed bunch. I say pop, but actually don't drink that much. Others say soda or just plain old "drink". I was very dissapointed when Coke took over much of the area restraunts and venues. It is much harder to find Mountain Dew.
Of course it's pop here. However, go down to Wichita from here in Omaha, it's cola... and in Topeka it's soda.. so it's just mixed. Most of us Midwesterners say pop. Wisconsin isn't really midwest anyway.. it's more north. *** Edited 7/14/2006 12:41:50 AM UTC by Austin the Ninja***
I lived in Milwaukee half my life and Marinette (an hour north of green bay) for the last few years. Obviously from all the other replies I must be wrong but from what I've seen its Soda. And as far as water fountains its always been a bubbler for me too. The only ppl ive ever heard call it that though are from wisconsin.
