I am going through the same thing as you, but we're only going for 1 day. All the deals we find are 2 day deals and we can't do 2 days due to time restraints. Anyone have 1 day ticket deals?

guys, there have been PLENTY of posts looking for discounts on BGE. If you ask James (Rio) to find my BGE trip report, it explains my difficulty with time share, even though it is a good deal! About 2 and a half hours of crappy, no good looking for free tickets to BGE. But when they sit you down, you can't say no right away, or else they keep piling it on, and they won't give you the tickets. But, the place is pretty close to BGE! like 5, 10 minutes!

I don't know about all that timeshare business... and I wouldn't ever recommend sitting through a TS presentation for some tickets, but right now on the BGW site, adults can buy a one-day ticket for the kids' price of $49.95, or a Virginia Residents Fun Card that provides admission for the rest of the year for $59.95. If you are not from VA and you need multi-day tickets, you can get a 7 day pass to both BGW and Water Country USA (a very nice water park) for $69.95.

Check the BGW site for more info.

Subway had coupons starting in the spring. Since I'm a longtime season passholder, I didn't notice the details, but I think it was a discount for one day, not two. Also, not sure if the coupons are still there, since this was about the time the season started.

When is your trip? If I'm in a Subway in the next few days, I'll try to remember to see if coupons are still out.

Also, I have a vague impression of possibly seeing ticket "cards" for sale at places like drugstores in the greater Richmond area, so surely the 'burg would have them, too. Not sure they would involve a discount price, though. Again, I'll keep my eyes open and maybe have some info before your trip.

I use the very secretive version of my name: Rames Jao. No one ever figures it out! ;)

^^I know I'll be there! (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge).


Karyn,

William, Eli, and I all apologize for hijacking your discussion thread. It won't happen again. Besides it was all Eli's fault for spelling my name wrong in the first place!

Doesn't matter, james. as long as we all get along! (JAKE RIVERS, HINT, HINT, NUDGE, NUDGE!)

Back to the original question. I don't know what things are like these days in Williamsburg but down here in Orlando there is no shortage of characters offering a "good deal" on Disney or Universal tickets. Plenty of these folks on I Drive. If you encounter any of these cretins, walk away briskly. I've seen quite a few people be turned away at the gates due to their ticket being fraudulent or expired. They often complain long and loud but they don't get in. Always buy your ticket direct from the park or from a reputable, licensed dealer like AAA.

BGW is offering an adult at child's price which is probably the best you are going to get right now!
