SFNO - wow, costly

Thursday, March 18, 2004 11:52 AM
I'm going to SFNO sometime between April 2-6, so I just went to the Web site to buy tickets... and was shocked to see they are $35.99 each! Wow, for what the park offers, I was expecting $25.

Anyway, does anyone have coupons they could mail me, or know where I can pick some up? Thanks!

Wait for the Coke can promotions, it'll probably be the Buy one get one free promotion again. That would save some cash.

You going to the park for at least 2 days Den? If so, buy their season pass for $49.99.

I'm not, just one day. And I probably won't go to another SF park all year.

Don't worry, you will find a coupon somewhere when you get in the area of SFNO.

Yeah, Marine world is another one. They charge like $42.99, which is even more than Great America. I mean, I love Medusa/Roar like a fat kid love cake but I think that's kinda pricey!!

It's worth calling the a AAA office local to the park if you are a member, as well. That often results in as good a deal as you can find.

Maybe inflation's gotten the better of me, but $36 seems pretty fair for a SF park. Aren't single-day admission prices for the major parks upwards of $45 these days, sans coupon?

I think BGW is the only one-day admission price to make my jaw drop recently... it surpassed the cost of my SF season pass with change to spare.

That's the point - SFNO is not a major park. It has one wooden coaster, a B:TR clone, boomerang, small sit-down looper and a wild mouse. More along the lines of a Michigan's Adventure than the average SF park.

I understand your point, but the park will charge what their market will pay.

Usually, coke cans, Taco Bell's, McDonalds, and Ebay are good places to get discounts.

I would also go over to SFNO.com and post over there where people actually in NO might be able to give you current advice.

Den,

It may not be worth that much for you, but Megazeph is probably the best CCI with G trains, and The BTR they have is the best of the bunch. It's the old Gambit, and so it's probably the NEWEST of the Batmans... er namtaBs.

You'll enjoy the park. Don't miss the Sally Darkride either and although their log flume looks very lame as far as theming goes, the drop is something else!

Actually, PGA is now $47.99 for a single day admission, 2 bucks more than SFMW. For the few short stunted coasters PGA offers, that's total price gouging IMO:

I have to agree with Olsor, even Bonfante Gardens has bumped up their admission to $31.99 this year. In these times, $36 aint such a bad deal. As others have noted, with all the discounts SF gives out, no one pays full price anyway. So not a bad deal at all, just keep your eyes open for the discount coupons.

Actually jo, I should have specified SFGam. That park is much larger and is a lot more popular.

Funny....I drove by PGA today and thought it is probably the least appealing *large* park.

Ps, I see you like Ms Karen too :)

Ok, I'll have to agree with you on that, SFGAM is probably my most favorite SF park. But with PGA charging so much, I guess SFMW feels they can get away with charging $46.

Yeah, Ms. Karen rocks!

Aiight, I just found a $10 off coupon on a visitor's website - only good with an out-of-town driver's license. Weird.

Yeah as I expected late in 2003, SFNO raised their prices fromm 32 to 35 dollars. Although even when the park was Jazzland the price was 31 dollars. Seems to be on par with other parks to me though. You'll definitely have a blast on Mega Zeph, which has had a couple of bumps retracked out of it this year :)
