What do you do with them when everybody you know that would visit SDC already has a season pass?

We usually look for people waiting in line to buy tickets and ask them if they want to go in free with us. Sometimes they donít believe us but weíve actually had the ticket window staff tell them that itís a legit thing.

Just remember that they have to walk in with you. You canít just give them the passes.

We have tried giving them to people in the past as we are going in and it got to the point where people were rude and acted like you were a scum bag or something even talking to them.  So now we just throw them away if we do not use them.

We have given a lot of tickets away over the years, and yes there are a lot of skeptical people out there for good reason.  If you keep asking you will eventually find a family or individual that is very appreciative of your gift.

This!  If we've been out there on days the tickets are good, we'll look around for a family with kids or a younger couple that looks friendly and approach them with the offer.  I have had a couple turn me down, but most of the time they are very grateful for us saving them the money and the time in the extra line.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

My family is going to SDC, this Tuesday, but the BAFs aren't valid for Tuesday.  Might anybody have one extra pass (e.g., employee pass) we could use?  Send me a PM.

Thank you for your response.  We actually have the BAFs that are something like $26, so we'll use one of those if we have to.  I'm just cheap and thought somebody might make a better offer.
