How to Save Money on Summer Attractions in Cincinnati

Expenses for families visiting summer sights can be increased quickly … but it is not necessary to pay if you follow these guidelines.

Do your research before traveling.
I love adventure, and I’m also a big fan of planning ahead to maximize my traffic and budget. I like to find time and days of interest, there are a few crowded with a simple Google search for attractions with large price tags, I always make sure to check the weather before traveling. Theme parks may be less crowded on cloudy and rainy days. But I do not want to risk the day with the high risk forecasts of the storm being a big part of the day.

Go to the Attraction website.
When visiting the site of the first place, you will be notified about special events, hours and special offers. Most travel destinations offer the most savings by purchasing tickets online directly before you go with a door purchase.

Connect with Social Media
Make sure you like the main social media sources (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook). Facebook is still the most popular for communication, discounts, special events, and giveaways. Some indoor attractions, such as Dart Rush, have special community groups to help them communicate with special discounts.

Sign up for newsletter
One great way to learn about special discounts is to sign up for direct-to-site newsletters. For example, Great Wolf Lodge email users are the first to receive a special price quote before visiting a website. Check out local deals and deals sites such as Groupon.

Package Deals
I also want to check out local attractions for the Cincinnati USA package deals. There are several packages on their website that gather together tourist attractions and accommodations. Some of the attractions are even affiliated. For example, Great Wolf Lodge offers a special package for guests wishing to visit Kings Island, which is located next to the hotel.

Special Summer
Many attractions offer summer deals where one child gets free or reduced price when buying paid adults. Cinemas, bowling alleys and other places within the building. There are also plenty of special offers for drivers to visit during the summer.

Visit after 4PM
Most attractions in the area are discounted for guests arriving after 4 PM. For example, Kings Island Amusement Park and Coney Island Amusement Park are available online in the options available after 4 PM.

When in doubt ask!
Many attractions in Cincinnati offer discounts for local customers, elders, military and AAA members.

Find local discount sites
After you check this site, browse through deals websites like Groupon, Cincy Savers and Living Social to save more money.

Check discount tickets at the retailer.
Retailers, grocery stores and restaurants, as well as various attractions, offer more savings.

King Island Amusement Park
If you plan to go to Kings more than once in the next 6-7 months, the best value is the Gold Season Pass which includes a water park, a car park and a winterfest. I would also recommend the All Season dinner plan if you are. Plan to become a Pass Season Passenger
Buy a large drink in the McDonald’s area, and you can save up to $ 20 when you bring a plastic cup to the park.
