|No matter where you are traveling to visit a
waterpark, make sure you take time to check the park’s
Web site for information on directions, accommodations—and
discounts! Often, you’ll find waterparks partnering with
other area attractions or sponsors to offer special deals. For
example, look for deals such as:
Are you a member of AAA, AARP or some other large, national
association? As part of your membership benefits, you may be
able to buy discounted tickets to waterparks.
When you’re purchasing your extra-large cans of green
beans, check whether you can also get discounts to your local
waterpark. Discount clubs such as Costco, Sam’s Club or
B.J.’s often offer discounted tickets.
Cross-promotions are common between waterparks and soda companies,
cereal makers, fast-food retailers and supermarkets. Call the
waterpark and ask if they are offering any promotional tie-ins
with local or regional retailers.
Visa, Discover, American Express and most other credit-card
companies provide special promotional deals to entertainment
options such as waterparks.
Annual passes are a great money-saving option. If you plan on
visiting a waterpark more than once in a season, buying an annual
pass usually will pay for itself in as few as two or three visits.
If you will be traveling around the U.S. on your search for
water fun, check whether corporate parks - such as Six Flags,
Palace Entertainment, Disney and others - offer annual passes
you can use at all the parks in that chain.
Many waterparks offer group discounts for people. Discounts
can be substantial, so check with individual parks to compare
savings. Similarly, many waterparks offer corporate programs
and group picnics. Check with your local waterpark to see what
is available in this regard. For details on the various group
sales offerings available at your waterpark, contact the group
