    Away.com discusses their top tips for visiting a theme park on a budget.

    Amanda Lukoff: Since the cyclone first drew the grill seekers to Coney Island in 1884, theme parks have been an ultimate vacation destination. But it can be in expensive one too. At away.

    com, we have some tips that can help you save money and turn your theme park vacation into reality.

    Our first tip is to opt for a regional park. The United State boasts more than 400 amusement parks and while mega theme park chains may have the most marketing dollars, visitors can bag great savings and avoid crowds by hitting up smaller regional theme parks. Many regional parks offer discounted tickets, so check local businesses like banks and grocery stores for special offers.

    The second tip; go after 4 pm. Some parks offer deep discounts on twilight tickets that are valid during evening hours. If the park is open until 10 PM that means you can spend up to six hours in the park without the sun beating down on you. That's a double bonus of comfort and savings.

    Finally, travel during the off-season. By traveling when others aren't, you can find savings to cheaper air fair, hotel deals and specials at local restaurants looking to bring in customers. Visiting at times other than summer, weekends, or holidays typically guarantees that you'll be able to enjoy your favorite ride as many times as your heart desires.

    So, don't let a theme park adventure bust your budget. Good luck saving and have fun riding!
