Published: October 21, 2009 at 12:46 AMCould Universal's free ticket promo during the Super Bowl have anything to do with ticket revenues being down? Just wondering. (My boyfriend, his son and I went there in July, and none of us had to buy a ticket at the gate. My boyfriend and I had won tickets in the Super Bowl promo, and we'd bought a ticket for his son at our local AAA.) I'm not saying this promo would be entirely responsible for a decline, but I'd think it would play some role. Any statistics on how many freebies have been used versus the number distributed?

I had bought us the buy 3 get 7 days deal online. We spent one day at each park, getting multiple rides on the best ones and decided not to use the rest of the ticket. So I guess Universal can count us as a loss in attendance.
