(43-230) Wet 'n' Wild

Now if this was a "different" kinda blog; that title might really garner me some attention.  But since this is the blog that's all about, observational humor, my personal journey, life lessons, and (say it with me) "The Greater Good;" y'all know where this post is heading.

I get such satisfaction out of writing a post like today's; because you know I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when I can tell you about a SUPER deal.  Talk about the Greater Good!  Now, it certainly is possible that I'm the last to know about the news that I'm going to share; but you know me... If just one person will benefit from what I've discovered; I'll be happy.

So a couple of weeks ago I was driving home from my office and I heard an ad on the radio for Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix, water park.  Now two years ago when Wet 'n' Wild first opened here; we'd bought season passes and I thought that it was well worth the money; but NOW, they are having such a spectacular sale; that we're going to buy tickets, even though we hadn't been planning to.

If you purchase 4 or more tickets before March 21, 2011 the ticket price is ONLY $49.99 plus tax, per person ($54.64) for a season pass.  If you buy 3 or less, it's $59.99 plus tax, per person,  ($65.57) which is still a great deal.  But wait; there's more... Wet 'n' Wild unfortunately charges $7 per day for parking, BUT you can purchase a Gold pass which would include:
•Unlimited admission during the 2011 season
FREE parking
•Special Bring-A-Friend FREE days on specific days during the season
•5 FREE tube rentals
•Discounts on private cabana rentals: Save $10 weekdays, $15 weekends & holidays
•10% discount on a 2011 souvenir cup
•20% discount on all merchandise

The price for the Gold pass is $69.99 plus tax  ($76.50) if you buy 4 of this pass type or more, and $79.99 plus tax, ($87.43)  if you buy 3 or less of this pass type.  The way I see it, my kids won't need the pass that includes parking; in fact I could PROBABLY just buy one ticket that included parking; OR to be on the safe side; I could purchase my tickets with  friend(s); so that we we would purchase a minimum of 4 gold passes at the $69.99 rate and all adults would then have parking included; AND if we bought the children's tickets together; people who may not have been eligible for the discount before; could now receive it.  See, what did I tell you?  Greater Good, Greater Good, Greater Good!  Am I always thinking and yes, PLANNING; or what?

Now you may be saying to yourself; "Self, this is a lot of money for a family of 4 or more,) BUT when you consider the fact that the regular price of a one day admission is $34.99 plus tax for anyone over 42" and $27.99  plus tax for seniors or anyone under 42"; this is a deal that's too good to pass up.  If you do choose to forego this offer, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that you can get a 10% discount if you buy the general admission $34.99 priced ticket,  online. 

Remember; you don't have to be a fan of the "wild" rides, in order to enjoy the summer at Wet'n'Wild.  They have a wave pool, and a lazy river for those of us who are a little tamer.  They have a wonderful, water play area with a variety of slides for children of all ages; and a giant bucket that fills up with water, then spills over for a Colossal, cool down.

Wet'n'Wild is currently open from 11am until 5pm daily, for Spring break through March 20; although, I don't foresee that my family would be going there during this time.

If you don't reside in the Phoenix area; I apologize that this great deal doesn't pertain to you; and I hope to tell you about something that will be useful to you personally, in the near future.

As temps in Phoenix are expected to get up into the 90's this week, knowing that we'll have these great tickets to look forward to for the summer; already makes things seem much cooler.
Till next time...
