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 alone....so 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.
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.
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"... :)
^ 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"...at 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

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.
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? :)
