For the past several years I’ve shared ways you can save on tickets for Wild Waves Theme & Water Park and I thought I’d repeat that for this year for those of you that enjoy attending this park! Please note that some of these options aren’t available yet, but I hope to update this post as they do become available.
Buy a Wild Waves Season Pass
Through June 30th, buy a Season Pass for the reduced price of $69.99! After that, expect a price jump. The season pass is for children 4 and up (3 and under are free – it used to be only 2 and under were free!). Here are the benefits of buying a season pass:
- Unlimited admission on all regular opening days in 2017
- Free 2017 Fright Fest Visits
- Free 2017 Holiday with Lights Visits
- Free or discounted tickets for friends on select dates
- Bonus in-park discounts on your Season Pass card
Note: If you purchase your season pass at 100+ select Safeway or Albertsons locations, you’ll save on online processing fees.
Other Ways to Save on Wild Waves Tickets
We’re still early into the season, so some of these options are not available yet, but may be soon! I’m also going to include some additional tips you shared on previous Wild Waves posts.
- June special price. Visit in June and you’ll pay $16.99 for single day admission, plus tax and online processing fee.
- Craigslist. A friend of mine mentioned she’s had luck finding Wild Waves tickets on Craigslist. I would caution you to only go this route if you’re able to assume a fair level of risk.
- Costco discounted Wild Waves Tickets. Readers have mentioned Costco was selling Wild Waves tickets bundled in a 2-pack.
- (Past years) BECU discount tickets. In the past, BECU members could get $15 off individual tickets just by showing their BECU debit or credit card, BECU check, or a copy of their most recent statement. We haven’t heard yet if this is still available.
- (Past years) MetroPCS discount tickets (Tuesdays). In the past, you could visit a MetroPCS location and demo a phone or make a purchase to receive a coupon for up to $20 off general park admission on Tuesdays through August.
- (Past years) Mountain Dew cans. In the past, local convenience stores and grocery stores carried specially marked Mountain Dew cans with coupons for $15 off general admission or $5 off child/senior admission. Each can was good for up to four discounted tickets.
- (Past years) Seattle Parks & Recreation. Seattle Parks and Recreation has offered discounted tickets that benefited teen programs for at least the last couple years. You might keep an eye on the site for announcements. Maegen of Sounds Fun Mom mentioned Lacey Parks and Recreation has done a similar deal. So maybe the takeaway is – call your local Parks and Recreation department!
- Military discounts. If you are in the military, bring your valid ID to save on ticket costs. For 2017, military will pay between $16.99-$24.99 per ticket (depending on season) vs. $21.99-$40.99. Note that you will need to purchase your tickets at the gate for the discount (versus online). There is a limit of one discount per military ID.
- AAA discounts. If you are an AAA member, you can get tickets for $16.99-$29.99 (vs. the regular price of $21.99-$40.99) during the main season. As with the military discount, you will need to purchase your tickets at the gate with a valid ID.
- Senior discount. If you are a senior, you can pay $21.99 for your ticket at the gate (same price if purchased online).
- Group discount. If you have a group of 12 or more, purchase your tickets in advance online and you’ll receive 1 free ticket for every 12 tickets purchased.
- Online purchase discount. If you opt to buy your tickets online, you can pay $29.99 (vs. the regular price of $40.99). However, please note that a processing fee per ticket will be assessed. You could possibly save more money with one of the above-mentioned methods.
- Parking Pass. Parking is $12/day, so if you’re planning to go several times you may want to buy a 2017 Season Parking Pass for $50.
I would love to hear your tips for saving at Wild Waves! How do you save on tickets – and how do you save once you’re in the park?
