I have seen it mentioned a few times on here. What is the SFWOA season pass only club? I have had a season pass for a few seasons now and have not heard or seen anything about it anywhere else.

I believe it's the Beachcomber's Restaurant. It's located next to Hook's Lagoon and is reserved for season pass holders. They offer food at a slightly lower price than some other places in the park. I ate there last year and was seriously dissappointed with the quality of the food. Hope that helped you out.
Fear, not the distance from which you fall, however, the velocity with which you hit the ground.

Brett's correct...about everything. The food isn't all that great, but it's the same pizza, popcorn, pretzels, and drinks you would get at any of the "parks" fast food stands (not the Subways or Mr. Hero). It was a good place to snack and get something to drink. The prices seemd to be almost half of what they were charging the GP. I haven't checked to see if they're doing it again this year or not.
If I had something inspiring to say, you'd be reading it now.

Does this perk apply to season pass holders of other SF parks if they visit SFWoA?

I think so. I went there twice last year, the first time they checked my pass, and the second they didn't even look at it lol. So on that day any person without a season pass could literally just go in and get something to eat or drink at half the price.

It's also air conditioned and has televisions. It's a good place to chill off and get a drink, if nothing else.
The "subs" they had there the one time I tried them were nasty premade gas-station type fare.

It's good for all passholders. I showed my SFKK pass and was allowed to order-not that it was anything to write home about. The cheap coke is really the only good thing going on there.

I've had a pass for a couple of years now to SFWoA and am yet to try it out. Maybe I'll give it a shot this year.

I posted this in a topic, but it got deleted, so I'll try here, since I'm not starting a new thread about a useless topic, only continuing discussion. I'm sorry if my topic is annoying, but I really need to know this, and I searched and didn't find anything. I saw a commercial in Northern Ohio (I'm in Akron) about discount tickets to SFWOA. But I dont' remember how you got the discount. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you so much! It's a $15 discount, right?

Right now SFWoA has 3 different promotions going on. They are running at McDonalds, Burger King and Wendys. I dont know which tickets are where but 1 has $10 off, one has $15 off and (I'm not lying here) one has Buy one get one free. This came straight from the Group Ticket Sales lady. My mom is the Asst. Principal for a VERY small Christian school and they take their 6-12 graders there every year but this year they dont have the min. 20 so the lady told her where to look to get the good tickets. Then there is always the discounted tickets at Giant Eagle.

To Further Help Out Coaster Keith (while staying on topic):
SF Pass Club, does allow you to get into the Beach Combers (as mentioned above). The food their is almost a steal. Others have said the sandwiches are pretty bad. I actually think they are not the best, but somwhat tasty. They are not your average Subway Sandwiches, but more comparable to a packed lunch, plus they are good size. The pop, water, and pretzels are at least 50% cheaper than the rest of the park, along with a few other things. Those who haven't been in the Beach Combers, it actually is a cool little "tropical" place, with a GREAT view of the park. It's a very nice shaded place to look out over the park since it's built over and out on the hill in the waterpark.
Secondly, you also get into the water park before the general public does. Thus, is theory, you can pick out your favorite lawn chair, or try the new slides with out any waits (which this year is probably a big bonus.
There is also the Bonus Calendar this year, which is not your average calendar. It actually has some GOOD SFWoA pictures in it, and the BIGGY...LOTS of coupons for use at SFWoA. I give two thumbs up for this idea this year. Every day in the calendar they have the parks hours marked in it, and special events. They also say if there is available coupons for this day or not and where they are located in the caledar. The coupons can be torn of the bottom of it. It's kinda cool because mother day coupons are of course on May's page and Frightfest coupons is on October's page...go figure ;) These are pretty much the same coupons that were in the coupon book last year...just a little better, and easier to figure out.
Oh, and AAA on May4 & 5 ONLY is offering $14.99 tickets to SFWoA :)
I hope some of this helps, let me know if you need any other information.
