10/3: At 4pm I just saw a YouTube ad promoting a $34.99 offer. Clicking the link takes you to the website where the actual price is $39.99. Here we go again!

mALICE IN WONDERLAND upcharge is $5 (purchase online to get that price) Platinum passholders get in to mALICE free thru Oct 9, and Gold free thru Oct 2, according to the current website.

9/19: $34.99 offer online currently (parking not included). Online advance ticket discounts: Pick a specific date and buy tickets in advance online and prices range from $39-$49, and parking discounted to $15.

9/22: As recently as last night (9/21), Adventureland was running ads on YouTube promoting a $29.99 Phantom Fall Fest ticket offer. When I clicked on the ad, it took me to a page with the $34.99 price. I contacted the park and they said the $29.99 offer ended last Sunday. BUYER BEWARE -- if you see an ad, it may be incorrect. Check their website as they won't honor the advertised rate.

9/26: Adventureland is still advertising a $29.99 offer on YouTube, but this offer ended on 9/18.
