Family trips to the local (or not so local) amusement park are so much fun, and a great way to make memories that will last for years to come. These days, however, this fun can come at a hefty price. The cost of amusement park tickets alone has increased tremendously, and the additional costs involved, such as food, parking and accommodations if you are traveling can make the whole trip cost way more than you planned.
- The key here is planning. Think ahead to get the best prices on your admission. Ticket prices can vary depending on the season, and there are often great deals if you look for them.
- Try going online to see if there are any ticket discounts, and also keep your eyes out at grocery stores and restaurants, there are often “2 for 1” deals as well. If nothing else, purchase your ticket online, not at the gate, you will most likely spend less money.
- Be sure to go during the park’s “off season.” It will be cheaper and less crowded.
