Roller coasters arouse adrenaline-fueled thrills by exploiting man's innate fear of losing his sunglasses. Dare to defy gravity with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for two all-day unlimited ride passes (a $51.90 value)
- $37 for two all-day unlimited ride passes and one $25 Fun Card (a $76.90 value)
When Cliff's Amusement Park reopens for the 2013 season in the first weekend of April, the ride pass will grant walk-around access to the park (excluding WaterMania), as well as unlimited thrill rides, family rides, and romps around Kiddieland. Brave the underground tunnel and G force–filled drops of the New Mexico Rattler, or see the Albuquerque skyline before plummeting breathlessly earthward on the Cliff Hanger.
For an extra $5, customers may upgrade to WaterMania access.
Younger visitors can take a gentle spin on a carousel pony that, like a conversation with a GPS system, doesn't really go anywhere. Use the Fun Card on anything in the park, including games and food.
Though Cliff's Amusement Park sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Cliff's Amusement Park
Whether the name of the game is to have some family fun or to scream like a banshee, Cliff's Amusement Park has been the place to do it for more than 50 years. The first thing you'll notice as you drive up is the New Mexico Rattler, a 3,000-foot wooden roller coaster that twists and turns its way around the edges of the park and plunges—for a few terrifying seconds—into an underground tunnel. The Cliff Hanger makes an anticipation-building ascent before freefalling back to earth, and the SideWinder twirls passengers 80 feet into the air on a structure resembling Paul Bunyan's spare wagon wheel.
The jungle-themed WaterMania area lets youngsters climb like monkeys and race down slippery water slides. They also can enjoy slower-paced fun inside bumper cars, on the Tilt-A-Whirl, or during a leisurely trip around the park on an old-timey train.
