Children Love Theme Parks, But Parents Don’t Love The Prices

Last weekend we had a trip to a local fete and their were rides for the kids. I was surprised that they were free and the kids had a great time without me having to tell them they couldn’t have another go because all our money was spent. Going to a big theme park is a different story though.
All children love spending time at a theme park and going on all the rides with their friends or siblings. The issue is that ticket prices are often high, and so some families can’t afford to give their kids that experience. The tips and tricks published on this post should help to turn the situation around. These ideas will help even those on the lowest incomes to spend an unforgettable day at Alton Towers or another top attraction.

Start saving as soon as possible

Of course, the easiest way to pay for theme park tickets is to start saving in advance. While some people might think that’s impossible given their financial situations, the infographic below offers some excellent advice. It highlights how the average family wastes money every month. Use it to make improvements.

Look for voucher deals in newspapers

Lots of national newspapers publish vouchers for cheap theme park tickets these days. Indeed, some of them even offer two for one deals that would slash the price in half. In most instances, people will have to buy the newspaper for a few weeks to get all the coupons. Still, that’s much cheaper than paying the full price at the gate.

Purchase tickets online using discount codes

It’s always sensible to search online for discount codes when purchasing theme park tickets. Most of the top attraction have an option during the checkout process for people to enter their promotional codes. That could assist families in saving a fortune.

Put the tips and tricks from this post into practice, and there is no reason the entire family can’t enjoy a day out at a theme park this summer. Enjoy!

I will hold my hands up to being quite rubbish when it comes to money, it slips through my fingers. These tips have shown me where I’ve been going wrong. I’m definitely an impulse buyer and I can’t go into a supermarket without coming back with twice as much as I went in for. I’ve started writing down and keeping the receipts of impulsive buys and take-aways and it has shocked me how much I’ve been spending over my limits.
