Vote of the week: Are you buying theme park tickets as Christmas presents?
Theme parks have been filling my e-mail in box over the past few weeks with offers hawking season passes and tickets as Christmas gifts. Six Flags and the Cedar Fair theme parks seem to have been hitting the pitches especially hard, trying to build a large base of visitors for what looks like another tough season in 2010.
Here's my question: Are you buying? Are you buying theme or amusement park passes this holiday season - for yourself, or for family or friends?
Or maybe you're buying for yourself and for family and friends. If so, the industry sends you its thanks. ;-)
Tell us what theme park-related gifts you've been buying (or asking for) this year. And if you're not, tell us why not - whether it's because of cost, quality, selection... whatever.
Thanks again for reading Theme Park Insider. And please keep reading next week and in the weeks ahead as we continue our series looking at all 64 nominees in the 2010 Best Theme Park Attraction tournament.
Stocking stuffers at the Rao household = 2010 season passes to Silver Dollar City (
The student lifestyle doesn't allow for Annual Passes, unfortunately.
Living in Clearwater, FL (which is a short hop over to Tampa) I'd be stupid not to take advantage of Busch Garden's deal right now for Florida residents - For less than the price for a one day pass, get admission for the rest of 2009 and all of 2010! And that Disney weekday Florida resident pass is too good good to pass up as well (so what if it not good on weekends... I prefer to visit when it's not zoo-like conditions!)
I bought a one night stay at Royal Pacific at Universal Orlando and 7 day passes for my moms Christmas gift. Of course my husband and I get to tag along to.
With the cost getting higher every year, it becomes an annual present now (usually the big one). It is something we enjoy doing together and gets harder to figure out what to get each other all the time. Disneyland is close to our house, and we end up there often.
Wait, people have to "buy" theme park tickets?
