Theme parks offer discounts for the retired crowd

Theme park chains are offering deep admission discounts to attract seniors to their parks. Parks say they offer diverse enough entertainment and certain perks that make their parks great attractions for retired people.

They moved Magic Mountain to Texas? (Check the typo)

I might have to rejoin AARP if they can get me some good park discounts. You only have to be 50 to join.

Wow. SFGAm is offering free admission for seniors in July?

That is great. Although a permanent admission charge of like $10.00 would be appropriate. Most seniors have paid their debt to society and should be rewarded with fun places to visit at a very low cost. Amusement parks are a good start.

I have a better idea. Just make the rides more adult friendly. Put at least a dozen higher back, level seats on the Swings. Retrack some of the coasters so they don't slam riders around quite so much. Sell heart healthy foods at concession stands. Place less emphasis on rides which turn people upside down and bring back some of the classics like Ferris Wheels, Tumble Bugs, Scramblers, Cuddle Ups and Rockets.

CPLady's avatar What?? And take away all that excitement??? I love going upside down, I love being slammed around on a good, rough woodie.

And yes Rob, sorry to say I'll be 50 in January. I refuse to grow old gracefully.
