I will soon be relocating to the Los Angeles area. I would like to hit as many parks as I can (before I start working); but at the same time I don't want to have to pay an arm and a leg to do so. Anyone know where I can get discount tickets, or maybe a multiple park ticket?

There is a thing called the CityPass which includes tickets to most of the So Cal parks. I know you can buy it at the ticket booths at Disneyland, Knotts and I think USH. It involves a few other parks too.

As for KBF, there is always a discount for the park. I know Ralph's grocery stores have coupons, and Pepsi might have something going on as well.

The Trip: CP, SFWoA, PKI, KW, HW, IB, SFGAm, MiA and LeSourdsville too.
8 Days- 10 parks. May 2003

I believe Ralphs is currently offering $23.99 to get into Knott's, and I think they do $21.99 after 4pm on any day that the park is open later than 6pm. As far Magic Mountain, not much going on other than the Rite-Aid promo (is that still running?) for a $53.99 season pass. It's not cheaper than a single day at the park, but depending on where in the LA area you're moving, you might find it worth it. Disney, however, doesn't seem to be running many publicized discounts, except for the 2-for-1 pass which gets you tickets to both DL and DCA for a single ticket. Still mighty pricey though.

I don't know of any promotions for Universal Hollywood, but IMHO, it's really not all that fantastic anyhoo. The Jurrasic Park flume ride was fun and all, but overall, it was kind of a letdown. I'm sure there are many here that would disagree with me, but what're you going to do?

Matt, I thought you knew better....

Ralphs sometimes sells tickets right in the stores, but that was a past promotion. Right now its...

"Eat Fresh and Save Big on Knott's tickets with Subway....

Stop by a participating Subway to pick up money saving coupons on Knott's Theme Park tickets. Adults are just $23.95 and kids (ages 3-11) are only $10.95 with a coupon from Subway. Coupons available through May 18 or while supplies last. Limit 6 discounts per coupon. Coupon valid through September 1st, 2003. "

And the city pass DOES NOT include admission to USH. It includes one day admissions to KBF, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, and a 3 day park hopper at Disneyland. You can buy the city pass at any of the attractions.

Danimales, are you a current Cedar Fair Season Pass holder? Because you can get into Knotts free with a Cedar Fair Pass.

Good thought CoasterKevin. But no, I didn't get a Cedar Fair Pass knowing I would be moving. But I didn't consider Knott's at the time. Does Knott's have a water park? To me that would make it worth it. Unless there are some other big time water parks in the area.

I'll be living in Pasadena. How far is SFMM from there? And how are the lines on weekends?

I have some from my work...

SFMM: Save $15 any day adult admission. This one expires May 31. We'll probably get another coupon here as soon as this one is expired.

Knott's: 5 coupons in one...

1.Adults $23.95, Kids $12.95 any day. Now through Sept 28

2. Mondays - Thursdays Adults $21.95, Kids $10.95. Now through Sept 28.

3. Cool Fun After 4pm: Adults $15.95, Kids $10.95. Any day now through Sept 28.

4. Soak City waterpark, Adults $15.95, Kids $9.95. Any day, all 2003 season.

5. Radisson Resort $79 room rates. (restrictions apply, blackout dates and other assorted legalise)

Also have San Diego Zoo, save $8 per person, and Legoland, save $4 per adult.

Check my profile for my e-mail address if you want me to send you any of these.

***edit saw more questions from Danimals***

Both Knott's and SFMM have waterparks. If you are a fan of the waterparks, the best one in the area is Raging Waters in San Dimas. That's not too far, about 20 miles from Pasadena. SFMM is about 40 miles from Pasadena, but on weekdays the traffic can be rediculous if you hit rush hour. Lines for SFMM can be long on the weekdays June - August, but better than weekends. If you can find a weekday where they are open 10-6pm, those are the best days.

Welcome to Southern California! Where you'll have no problem finding the Subway, Starbucks or unemployment office of your choice. ;)

Plus you'll arrive just in time to follow the construction of a new Knott's rollercoaster...

HA! Unemployment line! Luckily, I've landed a great job. Now what about this new coaster at Knott's?

Anyone know where I can find discounts for Raging Waters? This place looks like a blast! Is it as great is they say it is?

I'll keep my eyes open for Raging Waters discounts for you. I'm sure SOMEPLACE will have discounts. Actually, they have a section on their website for an e-coupon. It will get you $3 off per adult.
