Best prices and discounts on season passes
The best discount on next season's passes is during the "Labor Day Sale" online. But, be sure to consider the in-park "upgrade" price. For $29.99, you can upgrade any daily ticket to a season pass. The first weekends often sell daily tickets for $20, allowing you to get a season pass for $49.99. This trick applies to free tickets as well (such as the "Read to Succeed" tickets provided to area schools). It does not work on "bring a friend free" days, as there is no hard ticket to upgrade.
