Big Surf Discounts and deals
Big Surf has several good discounts running this year! There are several good ways to save:
1.) Online discounts: If you purchase your ticket directly from the BigSurfFun.com website, you can get a good discount on daily tickets. The price at the time of this update is cheaper than adult's, children's and even senior's tickets, and will shave plenty of money off of your family's day at the water park.
2.) Big Surf newsletter specials: Every Big Surf fan should subscribe to the park's newsletter. Why? Because you can find out about special discounts that aren't announced to the general public. In the past, even before the park opens, they begin offering discounts. You can get some very good deals this way, and they don't over-do it with too many emails, like some businesses do. You may sign up on the the Big Surf Tempe website. (Note: our website has no relationship with Big Surf other than to recommend them. So, if you have trouble getting your newsletter, please contact the park itself.)
4.) Big Surf groupon discounts: Groupon specials come & go, but it can pay to check the Groupon website before you head to the park...just to see if there's a good discount being offered. For example, at the time of this update, there IS a Groupon single-day ticket discount being offered. HOWEVER, it's being offered at the same price as the park's online discount.
5.) Military, Police and Fire discounts EVERYday! Bring your ID with you, and get a discount ticket at the Big Surf ticket booths; valid every day that the park is open. This is a very good special that lets those who qualify enter the park for $19.95 this year.
6.) Big Surf season passes: Frequent visitors will surely save money by getting the park's season pass, which gives you admission all summer for the price of only a few visits. Check the park's website for special online pricing and details about the passes. Note: Big Surf season passes do NOT include surfing sessions. A separate Surf Membership is available for that activity.
7.) Win free tickets in Big Surf contests...maybe! You can't count on winning a contest, of course...but there's no harm in trying. Big Surf sometimes has contests on their Facebook page...and hopefully, even more will be coming up. In addition, traditionally Facebook fans have been offered some of the same special "fan" discounts that newsletter subscribers have been offered. Be on the lookout for more contests and discounts being announced in the future, if you subscribe to the park's social media.
