Which park has the overall best prices on tickets, food, and souveniers??
Monday, July 2, 2001 3:11 PM
the only park that i've been too that has decent prices for anything is a small little tiny park in Easton Pa called Buskill, but other then that I think no parks prices are decent. It makes me cry cause living on a budget makes it hard to eat at my fav. places. But you know who's prices are ridiculues SixFlags Great Adventure. You know i paid $2.50 for the tinest most disgusting hotdog in the world. I mean it was small. Size of my pinkie small.

Holiday World is great. Only about 20 bucks to get in, free drinks, and 2 of the best wooden coasters in the world.
Can't wait to go on Thursday!

Knott's is just about in the middle. Great price from ralphs, 19 bucks, and alright prices for food. Plus you have Ghostrider and Perilous Plunge. Oh and the Talles structure in Orange County...SUPREME SCREAM!

Again, guys, bottom line is "cost of living". SFGrAdv is in a part of New Jersey that is a short bus ride/car drive from NEW YORK CITY! Everything costs more -- ESPECIALLY land. They're not out to rip you off, they're just trying to meet expenses. You can't compare that to a park in "Santa Claus", Indiana. C'mon, really.

I'm not comparing, I'm just flat out saying that Holiday World is a great value.

I would have to say Kennywood. Great prices.

Any family owned park is going to be more reasonable than a corporate park. Thats just the way it is.

Cedar Point has the best prices I have encountered. $1.49 for a funnel cake w/ loads of ice cream, whipped cream, and sprinkles. A foot long chilli-cheese dog is in the neighborhood of $2.50. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

A funnel cake was 3.75 last time I was at the Point. I think Michigan's Adventure has sweet prices. 20 bucks for the Timbers and the waterpark?! I'll take it!

Holiday World, Lakemont and Knoebles.

Drinks at CP were something like 2.75 when i was there this year, the highest prices we have encountered in OH on concessions.

MI Adventure does have good admission prices, but just this year all their food went up :(.

Out of the parks i been to i thought cedarpoint was preety cheap only $30somthing to get into the park $40somthing for two days to the park with the most coasters in the world (at the time)the only complaint i had was the crowded lines they had but it wasen that bad the second day i was there wish was a tuesday also all of there rides are open so that was good and a fanny back i think was about $4 compared to any sixflags park that was good. in SFGadv its $3 for a 20 oz soda meanwhile i get it for $1 by my house $1.25 elsewhere.

To Me,Any park where the state they reside in has a lower cost of living then NJ.My cousins all go to SF Darien Lake and the first time they went to SFgadv they about died but,they would spend $50,000 for a house there that would cost $90,000 here in NJ.Family owned parks i have heard are much more reasonable.Alot of people have told me Knoebels is real nice to your wallet.

Knobles in Pennsylvania is free to park and to get in and I heard they are reasonable on their food and souvineers.
As for their all-day admission, don't know... but you can at least do a pay-per-ride which may make it more reasonable if you are selective!!
Waldameer Park in Erie, PA is also free to get in/walk around, but they don't have any major coaster until next year's wooden monster!! They are free to park and are pretty reasonable on per-ticket rides and food/games.
