Today while my son and I were at the Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day with a good friend and her kids, I got to talking to another cool, frugal mom who mentioned a great deal at Splash Down Waterpark in Manassas, VA. So here’s the deal:
Every Friday from 9:00 am – 10:30 am through August 20th, 2010: Escape to a day at the beach without the drive for a quiet play time. Parents and tots (5 and under) play in a safe, fun environment before the park opens to the public. This is a great time for kids to make new friends, and parents to network with each other. $3.50/child (parent is free with paying child). For more information check out the special events calendar here.
Normal price for Splash Down Waterpark admission price is $10.95/$14.95 per person (see normal price list here). For kids 5 and under, the play date Friday morning is a fairly inexpensive way to get some fun Waterpark time in before the park opens up for everyone. Plus, my little guy usually only lasts an hour or two before getting worn out, so I think I would definitely get the bang for my buck for this. I was told that only the “kid section” is open and that they were a little disappointed that the Lazy River is not open during the play date, but overall a fun and discounted time (plus parents are free…hard to beat that!).
