As if the announcement video wasn't bad enough today, here's the incentive ad that potentially tens of thousands of people have seen. Take a quick second glance before sending?

Grammar fail and typo are not the same thing.

This looks like someone typed it too fast and no one caught it. (Or there was no oversight and they just started printing things.)

The Carowinds one was done by people who doesn't know proper English.

Yes kpjb. This title was used to play off of the Carowinds title. Well done.

"people who don't know proper English?"

fo is a typo.

The real issue is "Buy your 2016 passes now for: There will never be a better deal!"

"The term is 'amusement park.' An old Earth name for a place where people could go to see and do all sorts of fascinating things." -Spock, Stardate 3025

Yeah. "There will never be a better deal!" should be separated from the rest, with no bullet point. At least it's kind of cute.

When I wrote for the newspaper a hundred years ago, I didn't have to worry about grammar or spelling, because I had a good proofreader to do all the corrections and send it back to me before printing. Thank goodness!

They should have sent this around to the office to get people to proofread it before making it final. These are easy mistakes to make, and easy to look miss.

I see what you did there with those last words....

Disagree with the final bullet point being omitted. It makes perfect sense to me to include it.

"Buy your 2016 passes now for (meaning because or since) there will never be a better deal." (after now!)

No, the final bullet point isn't right. The first five indicate what your season pass can be used for: discounts, free drinks, upgrades.

You won't be able to use your pass to get a better deal that, they say, will never exist. They'll want to see your credit card. :-)
