ONE FREE SFMM Ticket (Expires Oct 9th)

Tuesday, September 26, 2006 11:05 PM
Well I was given this ticket from somebody at another forum and actually went to Knotts/SFMM this past weekend. I'm a CF and SF season pass holder and my cousin was planning to drive up to SFMM. I live in St. Louis, and he is in SoCal. But for some reason he couldn't come with me so I had to go I still have this ticket left over.

The ticket is good for one free adult admission. It expires Oct 9th 2006. You must be 18 years of age to use the ticket. You take the ticket right to the gate and not the ticket booth.

If you are for sure going to SFMM in one of the upcomming weekends I'd be glad to mail it to you. Please don't post if you don't know if you'll be going for sure, or will let the ticket go to waste.

I'll be posting my TR for SFMM/Knotts later. I've been to SFMM plenty of times, but was new to Knotts.

Thanks, hopefully I'm not breaking any rules, figured I'd offer this to you guys here since I saw someone do the same thing for some tix to SFGRADV.

It's nice to see that I started a trend!

We often help out each other on these boards, so this is just taking it to a higher level.

I'm glad to see another thread like this.

Since when is a Six Flags park ticket limited to someone 18 or older?

Or is this your own rule to give it away?

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

Says so right on the ticket.

"One Free Adult Admission"
"Must be 18 years of age"

It also says you need proof of age at the gate, but who knows how accurate that is. *** Edited 9/28/2006 3:10:10 AM UTC by Geewhzz***

So does this mean anyone under the age of 18 shouldn't otherwise be charged for an adult ticket?
Wednesday, September 27, 2006 11:26 PM
No, it's just specifically for this ticket.

rollergator's avatar Might have been specifically some sort of contest giveaway deal, where you might have to be 18 to win/claim the prize? Just a theory...

I was just thinking that someone who wanted to be a real pain in the ass could take this ticket and a few ten-year olds and argue over what constitutes an "adult" admission.

Lord Gonchar's avatar Not if it defines what constitutes an 'adult' admission right on the ticket. :)

That's assuming the park would even care in the first place...I have a feeling they wouldn't. But it is SF, so who knows?

Hmmm, I guess I'm not making myself clear. I'm saying that anyone who took someone under the age of 18 to a Six Flags park and paid for non-child admission could argue that here Six Flags is saying over the age of 18 is considered adult admission, therefore I overpaid for Junior.
Thursday, September 28, 2006 4:24 PM
Lord Gonchar's avatar Oh, I see.

But the restriction on a 'junior' ticket clearly states it is intended for those under 48 inches.

The real argument could come from someone of adult age who is under 48" tall. :)

rollergator's avatar Only once that I can think of has someone inquired about AGE to ride an "adult" ride....Knott's Berry Farm, Riptide, Solace. Luckily, Iggy's kids are old enough....yet still young enough to ride the kiddie coaster at Lakeside in Denver...go figure! ;)

Seriously, if HEIGHT determines WHAT rides you can ride, it should also be THE determining factor as to what price you pay for admission...just cause I'm "old"...certainly doesn't make me an "adult"... :)

You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)

^Then Hershey would need about 7 different admission plans. :)

rollergator's avatar ^ But if you consider the matter, Gonch is the one who always says that the admission price is determined by 'what's available to you" least when it comes to small-park prices vs. big-park prices...a very sexy argument, even if you don't necessarily AGREE with it...

I'm just expanding the concept, thinking that a kid of 42" shouldn't be charged admission that *theoretically* allows him to "all the rides, shows, and attractions"...he (or she, or the kid's parents) should pay lower admission since, really, fewer rides are available to them to ride...

It's a theory, obviously there's a few bugs to be worked out... :~P

Lord Gonchar's avatar No, you're exactly right Gator. That's why most parks set gate prices based on height. (oddly enough the only exception that comes to mind is Disney)

I guess it'd be silly to offer a gazillion different admissions based on different levels of height. 48" seems like a good standard. Less than that and you're pretty much doing 'kiddie' rides. More than that and you're able to do *most* of the 'adult' ones.

No idea what's up with the age stipulation on the SF ticket in question. I'm guessing Gator nailed it - it's probably some promotional ticket dealy-o.

That's easy to say when you're a Jolly Rancher. :)

Lord Gonchar's avatar It's that a gay euphemism!?

Oh wait, the Hershey height thing... ;)

rollergator's avatar ^When *will* Disney unveil the fourth "mountain" at WDW....ROFL!

Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and, ummm, Brokeback Mountain?

LOL towards Gonch. Could they pick the lamest of their humongous product line to describe their height classifications? Only "miniatures" and "kissables" work for the littlest ones. They could at least call adult males "Nutrageous."

gator, and we think we hear complaints about the seats on other coasters? :)

This is very interesting. We are nearing the 20th post on this thread, and I don't think anyone has (of yet) claimed the ticket that's being offered.
