Suggestion for High School Trip

Wednesday, January 15, 2003 5:01 AM
My roommate is a teacher for a Pittsburgh Public School. He is thinking about planning a trip with some of his students in mid-May to either Six Flags Worlds of Adventure or to Cedar Point. I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about which would be a better choice. Also, does anyone know if either of these places offer discounts for groups like this?

thanks for any information.

Not trying to be rude but...Does anyone ever look at the official websites of the parks, cause I'm sure the info is right there.

when i was a senior in high school, i organized a trip to Six Flags New England, as part of my final project for physics. SF parks offer a discount for a certain amount of people. we went when it was "Physic's Day" and got a deal. me and my friends who were season pass holders drove out there ourselves ahead of the bus since we already had season pass's and didnt want to pay again, and because we also wanted to stay till the park closed :)

check out SF's website the information should be listed somewhere on there..if not call you nearest SF park and talk with them..they can fill you in on what you need to know. im sure CP offer's something similar to.

Well I know Six Flags has the behind the scenes educational tour of the animals and whatnot. So if it needs that little bit of educational value to be approved by the school, then Six Flags would be the way to go. Just about every amusement park offers discount group tickets as long as the group is over a set number (around 10-15).

Do you also think I should call the parks to get their opinion about whether I should go to their park of the other one?

Ok, forget about the discount question. I found that information.

Well no matter what park you call they are going to say "Come to my park, its better" they all want money.

Instead of asking that way, why dont you ask "What can your park offer my class as an educational trip?" or something like that. You will probabily get a better answer than "I have a large group. Which park would I be better off going to?"

I ran into the same conflict when I visited Ohio. We didn't know which to choose from, because Six Flags has more unique rides (X-Flight) that CP obviously doesn't have, but CP has more coasters with more records broken, and I really wanted to see what Millennium Force was like - since I hadn't ridden it before. So we decided on CP. It's all about what you prefer. There's no experience on Earth like MF, not to mention TTD debuting, but for just a little more diversity among rides, then SFWoa should be your pick.

SOB_TOM...

I really dont want to call the parks so I can hear some marketing BS. I was hoping to get some opinions from the people on this board.

Why not poll the kids first?

I like the poll. You could either take as:

1) Which park would you rather visit?

2)Which park have you been to? With that, tally up the votes and which ever park the least amount of kids have been to, pick that one. That way, you expose these kids to as many coasters as possible thus giving them a wider range to recall in memories and to possibly trigger the "enthusiast" inside.

BeastFreak has the right idea. You have to consider that not all those kids are going to be thrillseekers, and many of them might not have been to either of the two parks. Frankly I think no matter which park is picked the kids will have a blast.
