**UPDATE: If you’re looking for a Wild Waves Fright Fest deal, we’ve got one! On Groupon you’ll pay $69.99 for admission for two (including parking) or $117.99 for admission for four (including parking). Get the deal HERE!
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 anyone 4 and up (3 and under are free). Here are the benefits of buying a season pass:
- Free souvenir bottle with $1.29 refills all season (must purchase and visit by 5/19/19)
- 3 Bring-a-Friend Free tickets (must purchase and visit by 5/27/19)
- 6 free Dive-In Movies
- Exclusive in-park discounts (see the full list HERE)
- Unlimited admission on all regular opening days in 2019
- Option to purchase the Season Pass Meal Plan for $69.99 and choose one meal combo or snack every time you visit
If possible, purchase your Season Pass at Safeway or Albertsons to 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.
- May-June special price. Visit through June 30th and you’ll pay $19.99 for single day admission, plus tax and online processing fee. Note that while the discount is good through June 30th, you’ll need to purchase them by June 16th.
- 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.
- BECU discount tickets. In the past, BECU members could get $20 off individual tickets when you order online through the BECU website.
- (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. They’re offering free admission to all military personnel and first responders May 25th-27th and giving discount admission to family members and friends on those dates.
- AAA discount. AAA members can save at the gate and pay $17.99 through June 30th, $31.99 from July 1st through September 7th, and $25.99 for Fright Fest.
- Senior discount. Seniors pay the same price as children – $24.99 when purchased in advance online.
- Group discount. If you have a group of 15 or more, purchase your tickets in advance online and you’ll receive 1 free ticket for every 15 tickets purchased.
- Online purchase discount. If you opt to buy your tickets online in advance, you can save up to $15 per ticket. 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.
- Afternoon discount. Staring July 1st, enter the park after 4 pm and you’ll get half off full-price admission at the gate.
- Parking Pass. Parking is $15/day, so if you’re planning to go several times you may want to buy a 2019 Season Parking Pass for $50 (note that this pass is available to Season Pass holders ONLY). Otherwise you can purchase online in advance to save a couple bucks.
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?
