October is here and all the frightening, hair-raising, spine-chilling, sinister Halloween activities have begun. If you are one of the many people who love getting scared out of your wits by visiting theme parks but need to stay on budget, the university can help.
CSUDH offers benefits and discounts to theme parks in the LA County area. The parks whose tickets are offered for student discounts are Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Six Flags Magic Mountain.
The Locker Student Union (LSU) is the organization that makes these tickets available for all students from all grade levels and part-time and full-time students. The games room is located at the LSU building room 140 on the lower level.
Madeline Villatoro, the games room attendant has given information on all the theme parks you can purchase tickets for and how. The LSU offers admission tickets for Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. The regular price is $63.95 for adults and $36.95 for children ages 12 and under. The price with the LSU discount is $41.57 for adults and $29.56 for children ages 12 and under. Knotts Berry Farm tickets are regularly priced at $89 gate price and online they are priced at $59, but the LSU price is from $51-$54 dollars depending on the day. The special event Knotts Scary Farm is going on right now and the ticket prices vary according to the dates of the intended visit. One-day passes for Universal Studios are priced from $92- 139 dollars. Universal Studios Hollywood ticket prices for the day with the LSU discount are $72- 102 dollars. These prices do not include the Halloween Horror Nights event happening this month. The LSU prices for Horror nights are priced between $169- $189 dollars. Please note that ticket prices are subject to change.
The only way to purchase tickets for Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is by visiting the games room 140. Admission tickets for these two theme parks can not be purchased online. The good news is that for the other theme park tickets you can purchase them online at your own convenience. For the Six Flags Halloween event, Fright Fest tickets can be purchased online at regular retail price but you can visit the games room 140 for further discount assistance.
Tickets can be purchased all year round. Around the Christmas season, tickets will also be available for Christmas events that these same theme parks offer. Again pricing may be different for these future events. For more information feel free to contact the Games Room at 310-243-3094 or simply visit room 140. You can also get information at the Locker Student Union at 310-243-3559 or online at the LSU website.
