Planning a weekend getaway at a water park can be a great way to get the family to relax together. The biggest drawback of these parks is the cost. It goes without saying that indoor water parks and outdoor water parks can be expensive. Still, if this is your goal, there are a few ways you can save money and still enjoy this weekend getaway as a family. It does not matter which park you go to either.
Saving Money At A Water Park
Let’s assume you are driving to the water park and therefore there is no additional cost for airline tickets. If you do not want to drive, you may wish to try a chartered bus tour instead. This will help you to save on costs while not having to drive there. But, once you arrive, how can you save money?
- Stay off site. Most of the time, the tickets for a water park can be purchased without booking a stay at the facility. This will save you money, especially if you stay in a hotel that is about 15 to 20 minutes away from the park itself.
- Find discounts. Discounts for the water park are likely available even in the off-season. Check the web for discounts. In addition, many local super markets and drug stores carry discounts for these parks and may even sell tickets at a discounted price.
- Do not eat at the facility. One of the largest costs you will find in a water park is food! Most will not allow you to bring in a lot of food, but you may be able to bring in treats and water bottles or juice boxes with you. This will help you to save money. For meals, leave the water park, locate a local diner or mom and pop restaurant and have a bigger, healthier meal for less there.
Water parks are a lot of fun. They are not all just for the summer either. Plan to visit the indoor water parks in the fall and spring for good savings. Check out the water park’s website prior to buying tickets for great discounts, which are nearly always available. Keep in mind that you can save money, in some cases, by buying tickets for the water park and other attractions at the same time. If this is something you are interested in, do book it. It could save you money and make your trip more enjoyable.
