Families from coast to coast are gearing up this summer to hit the rides at the many amusement parks across the country. But those thrills, spills and chills aren't free, and you may find yourself as queasy from the prices as from the rides. "Good Morning America's" Coupon Mom appeared on the show to give thrill-seeking families some tips on how to save at the parks this summer.
"Hit the books." There are tons of entertainment books available that act as coupon books for your city. Although they offer discounts and deals on local attractions, there are also a wide selection of coupons for national attractions like Sea World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens.
Save at Disney theme parks. When purchased in advance, multi-day passes from Disney (which is the parent company of ABC) can offer some heavy discounts for its attractions and parks around the globe -- the more days you buy, the more you save. If you happen to be visiting Disney World in Florida, you can purchase park passes with no expiration date, so the next time you visit, you already have your passes.
Look in your own back yard. Even if you can't make a long vacation out of it, there are probably lots of great amusement parks near you. Six Flags, for example, has locations all over the country. You can save big if you plan on returning to the park at least once in the same year by getting a season pass. Those passes often come with generous coupon books that offer savings on everything from parking to food and souvenirs.
Final thoughts. Keep your eyes open for local promotions like coupons on soda cans and fast food restaurant bags. You can also find some great discounts by purchasing tickets online and it comes with the added benefit of not having to wait in line!
