Season Passes at the Theme Park

Jun 9, 2012 Author Guy

When we were kids my mom would take us to the big theme park at least 5 or 6 times every summer. I don’t know how she did it. The tickets to the theme park are expensive as hell and she had to pay for not only us three kids but herself and sometimes one or two of our friends.

Not only do you have to fork out a shitload of money for an admission ticket, you have to pay to park the car and you are not allowed to bring any food or drinks into the park with you. You have to pay outrageous prices for the refreshments that they sell inside the park. In today’s money, a coke is like $10 for one drink and a hot dog was like $7.50 for just one fucking hot dog. Of course, when you are there all day long in the heat of summer you get hungry and thirsty, so you have to buy some food and drinks at their outrageous prices.

My mom was a single mom who didn’t get any financial help from my dad, so money was always tight. But somehow she always found a way to get us to fun places on the weekends. She told me once that the season tickets at Kings Dominion were probably the best entertainment money she ever spent. We had so many days of nothing but fun and excitement, and after you go the second time on a season ticket the rest of the times you go are pretty much for free except for the price of refreshments after you get inside the park.
