I'm Giving Away Some Free Kids Tix To Great Adventure

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 8:30 PM

I am giving away two pairs of kids tickets to Great Adventure.

Here's the deal...

1) Each ticket is good for a kid in grades Kindergarten through 6th ONLY. It does not include adult tickets, the safari, the waterpark, parking or anything else.

2) These tickets expire on August 12 - but are good on any operating day until then.

3) You must agree to post a trip report when you get home (within a few days would be best)

4) You must be a regular poster on Coaster Buzz to get these. If you are not sure if you are a regular poster...you are not a regular poster.

5) These tix are free. I don't want anything for them. It's actually nice for me to give something back to the coaster commumity that has helped me out in many ways.

6) Post here if you want a pair. Once I have two names, I will ask you to privately give me your address and you will make two kids happy.

Good Luck!

Jeeez...can't even give them away.

I am going there tomorrow and I will just hand them out to random people in line. (I've done that before too and it feels nice.)

At least I tried.

It's funny..I've offered a free ticket to people in line at GAdv, and got no takers. I guess I don't have that kind of face that people can trust..or even look at without fleeing in terror.

Sorry Richie, going to Great Adventure would mean that I'd have to be in the state of New Jersey. And I.... just can't do that.


Have fun!

That's weird. 5 years ago I successfully sold off 2 extra tickets for $25 a piece in the parking lot at GAdv.

Driving nine-and-a-half hours for Great Adventure does not appeal to me. Even with free tickets, it would cost my left testicle for gas to get there and my right testicle at the parking gate. After that, I'd have to deal with that parks crummy ride operations or else purchase a Flashpass, which would cost another testicle, and an overnight stay at a decent hotel 30 miles from the park would cost me another ball. That would cost FOUR balls, and I only have two.

I guess you could say that I don't have the balls to go to SFGAdv.

Dude, just grow a pair and go to Great Adventure.

You mean grow an ADDITIONAL pair? I'd like to be the person who invents the technology for that. lol

An Irishman moves to the USA and finally attends his first baseball game. The first batter approached the batters' box, took a few swings and then hits a double. Everyone was on their feet screaming, "Run, run".

The next batter hits a single and the Irishman listened as the crowd again cheered, "Run, run". The Irishman enjoyed the game and began screaming with the fans.

The fifth batter came up and four balls went by. The umpire called "Walk" and the batter started his slow trot to first base. The Irishman stood up and screamed, "R--r-r-run ye bastard, run!"

The people around him began laughing. Embarrassed, the Irishman sat back
down. A friendly fan noted the man's embarrassment, leaned over and explained--"He can't run. He's got four balls." The Irishman stood up and screamed, "Walk with pride, lad!"

What happened to the third and fourth batters?

Well, yeah. You already indicated that you possess one pair.

Vater, I was wondering the same thing. Great minds, and all that jazz..

They were tossed from the game.

For having too many balls?

WAIT! You will need the extra pair if you decide to go on Green Lantern!

I don't want to turn this into a trip report, but I was determined to give away 5 kids tickets today. Most people on the way to the gate already had what they needed and there were many skeptical people not wanting to take them from me because I was percieved as a skeevy scalper at a concert. I did approch the adults (never a kid) and a few already were planning on using the Read to Succeed tix that I had to give away.I did eventually do it, but it took some doing.

Oh yeah... I forgot that they were KID'S tickets. I have no kids.

I'm happy that you got rid of them though. I'm also happy that you did not approach the kids to give them away too. "Hey little boy. Would you like a free ticket to the park today?" lol

Were you there yesterday? Because I was and some creepy dude asked if I wanted some free tickets.

Saturday, August 4, 2012 9:43 AM

Did he offer you candy?

Saturday, August 4, 2012 9:48 AM

Yes then I got into his big white van.

Saturday, August 4, 2012 11:21 AM

"Get in the van. kid!"
