Theme parks offer incentives like coupons to lure customers to special events and to boost park attendance. Amusement park discount coupons tempt consumers to visit by offering a price break per ticket or per group. Coupons can be attached to a product or offered via a virtual code that can be redeemed online. No matter what form the coupon takes, a specific discount is taken from the park admission rate when the coupon is presented. Since each theme park creates its own coupons, it is important to read and understand the discount rules before planning a trip to the amusement park.

Regular admission prices for amusement parks can be a budget breaker, particularly for large families or groups, so using a coupon is a great way to enjoy the attractions without overspending. Depending on the fine print, amusement park discount coupons can be used for a percentage or dollar amount off a single admission or off several admissions. If the coupon is for a single admission discount, each member of the group will need his own coupon to get the savings.

Amusement park discount coupons offered online or designed to be redeemed online should be used within the time frame listed. Online discount codes may need to be used in advance, and the actual tickets will be sent to the purchaser by mail. In some cases, the coupon can be used online and a voucher can be printed at home, then presented at the theme park for admission. Every amusement park is different, so following the rules laid out on the coupon offer is the best way to ensure a successful transaction.

Convenience stores and fast-food restaurants can be a great source for amusement park discount coupons. Some restaurant locations offer discount coupons for local theme park attractions as well. Highway rest stops and state welcome centers are an excellent source for brochures and amusement park discount coupons. Picking up a coupon for every member of the travel party will maximize the savings on theme park admissions.

While most amusement park discount coupons are free, some can require a purchase. If the coupon is being offered by a major manufacturer, like a soft-drink company, it is likely legitimate. Theme park or amusement park discount coupons that seem too good to be true, or require a large purchase, should be approached with caution; it is possible to be scammed by unscrupulous business practices.

I have seen a lot of different amusement park discounts. Because of this, I have a hard time paying full price to go to an amusement park for a day.

Even some of the smaller amusement parks that are not as well known often have some kind of discount.

One year we went to a small amusement park where you received a nice discount off your ticket if you brought in an empty Pepsi can.

I really don't know why they offered this deal and what significance the Pepsi can had, but we took advantage of it.

Just by showing up with an empty soda can, I think we received $6 off each ticket. This can add up pretty fast, even for a family of four.

We are fortunate to have an amusement park just a few miles from our house. This park has been there for many years, and they continually add new rides and attractions.

Now they also have a water park inside the park which is a lot of fun. The best savings for our family is to buy an annual pass. This pass is only good for one person, but you only have to go to the park three times to get your money's worth.

We always buy one for each of the kids as we know they will easily get their money's worth. You have to buy this pass before a certain date in order to get this special deal.

Usually in the early spring they will start running advertisements for this. My kids would not spend nearly as much time as this amusement park if they didn't have this special offer.

If you are traveling with a large group, you can usually get a substantial discount on amusement park tickets.

Every year our church youth group goes to a large amusement park. If you have at least 10 members in your group, the price is a lot less than an individual ticket.

This is an ongoing discount, so you do not need to order the tickets ahead of time to receive the price break. We always order the tickets ahead of time just to save time when we get to the park.

For some kids this is the only opportunity they have to go to a big amusement park like this. Sometimes it still seems like a lot of money for one day of fun, but if you figured up how much you spent on each ride, it doesn't seem so bad.

Since I love rides, I try to ride as many of them as I can. I don't like to spend my time or money playing the games.

It seems like the price of amusement park tickets goes up every year. This can end up being quite an investment for a large family.

We live about 3 hours away from a major amusement park and water park. These are 2 different parks, but they are associated with the same company and right next to each other.

In the past they have offered a 2 for 1 discount, where you can go to the water park for free after purchasing the amusement park ticket.

If you really want to get your money's worth, you need one day at each park, but this was a big savings for our family.

I don't know if they still offer this discount on a regular basis or not. Without this discount, I probably would have never visited the water park, but on a hot summer day, it was really a lot of fun.
