As one of the Walmart Moms I frequently get a heads up on some of the great deals that they offer. I don’t share every single one of those with you guys-this really isn’t a “coupon and deals” kind of blog-but when one truly is a fabulous deal I am inclined to let you all know. When they throw in a freebie for me-well, that just seals it.
Summer time is traditionally when we all think about taking the family on vacation. For many folks, especially if you have a little adrenaline junkie in your midst like my Princess, that means trying to fit a theme park into your budget. This is where the “deal” part of this post comes in. . .
Normally to buy tickets to any of the Six Flags parks at the door costs about $50. So a four pack of tickets would run a family $200 for a single day at the park. Even if you had two adults at $50 and a couple of kids at $30. . . you are still talking $160 for the admission cost.
This June if you make a purchase at Walmart of Wednesday or Thursday you can buy a four pack of tickets, good at any Six Flags, for just $99. That’s around $25, or less than the cost of a child’s ticket EACH. For more information check out the Six Flags/Walmart website!
Of course there are other ways you can keep the costs of your trip down. Take a look at the Six Flags Website and see what other deals they are offering, or check out any other associations you belong to (AAA, the union at work etc) as well. Compare the meal plans offered (you can not bring your own food into the park with the exception of baby formula & special dietary needs) and see how you can save. Consider bringing an empty water bottle into the park and filling it at a water fountain (perhaps with a couple of those drink sticks in your bag) to cut down on soda/water costs.
What other ways do you have of saving money at a theme park?
I am a participant in the Walmart Moms program. Walmart has provided me with a 4 pack of Six Flags tickets in exchange for this post. Participation in this program is voluntary. All opinions expressed are my own.
