The David Arquette Project - Jonathan's Arquette Photo Tour (Part 2)

You probably saw Part One of Jonathan's Photo Trip Report from his cross-country roller coaster tour.  If you're anything like me, you're extremely jealous of all of the parks he and his wife got to visit this summer.

To us, the amazing part of their trip is that they remembered to bring along the "Arquette Arithmetic" image to each and every park they visited.

To date, Jonathan and his wife have submitted the most photos to our contest.

Will the sheer number of photos be enough to win our "Arquette Arithmetic" contest?

The David Arquette Project - Coastin' Steve Sports an Awesome T-Shirt

Our "Arquette Arithmetic" contest has been going on for awhile, but no one has done what Steve just accomplished.

While on a visit to Cedar Point, Steve wore his homemade "Arquette Arithmetic" shirt.  His original goal was to buy an on-ride photo while riding Millennium Force or Top Thrill Dragster, but the cameras were not working that day.

So, Steve sent in this photo in front of Cedar Point's iconic record breaker.

Steve had a good idea!  Not only did he promote, but he also promoted "The David Arquette Project."

Stacey's Money Saving Tips!

Stacey is hunting down money saving tips!
Some call me cheap and others call me a penny-pinching tightwad.

I like to think of myself as a savvy frugal spender that is always on the prowl for a good deal.

When it comes to having fun I like to go all out but far too often I find myself on a tight budget. There are so many ways to save a few bucks here and there when taking a trip to a theme park.

Before buying your theme park tickets be sure to check online for special discounts. Check the actual theme parks website for deals and coupons. Sometimes buying your tickets online ahead of time will save you some dough. Also don't forget that Google is your friend. You never know where you will find coupons. Keep in mind that local credit unions and grocery stores sometimes sell discounted tickets as well.

Often times you can get a value on park tickets if you go during the off-season. They need to get people in the door and discounted tickets are a sure-fire way to do it. On top of that, if you have to fly to a park your plane tickets will most likely be cheaper when other people are staying at home and not vacationing.

Do you have a large group of people that you're taking with you? Most parks offer group discount rates that decrease the price of tickets significantly. Don't forget that carpooling with your friends and family also saves you a bundle on fuel costs.

If you plan to visit a theme park for more than one day, be sure to take advantage of staying at on-site hotels if available. You may be able to get a discount for your park tickets and/or gain early entry into the park. Who doesn't love the feeling of having the park to yourself?

One of the ways that theme parks take your money from right under your nose is by making you spend a ridiculous amount on generic food. Pack a lunch instead and keep the cooler in your car until your family is ready to eat. Most theme parks now have a picnic area. Try and eat a late dinner outside of the park where prices and food are sure to please your tummy and pocketbook more so than inside of the park.

Be an early riser! Those that get to parks before opening almost always have significantly shorter waits at the newest and best attractions. Take a break mid-day and then come back later. If you stay until park closing, the crowds will be virtually non-existent and the temperatures much more tolerable. Make the most out of your day. Get the biggest bang for your buck!
