Today, a friend texted me to get a ticket and go to the theme park with her tomorrow. I bought a ticket and didn't hear from her until 5 hrs later to say she was sorry, but she doesn't think she'll be going. It was $65 and non refundable. FML

Can you no longer buy tickets at the gate? I would never buy tickets to an event in advance unless it was my idea and I was happy to go alone. Since this event no doubt happened some days ago, at least, it's probably a bit late to say, she may have been getting you out of the way, for some reason of her own.

Fuck it. I’d go by myself

Some theme parks/zoos give you a discount for purchasing online/in store rather than at gate. OP probably wanted to be ready to go the next morning! I agree with others that you should ask your friend to front the tickets and then you'll pay them, but even then friends have taken advantage of others doing this too! Win some, lose some. Could always try to sell at the gate!

Only today life lessons "Don't buy tickets for others" on special offer: theme parks $65, airplane $199, round trip with hotel $550! Don't miss!

Well your friend owes you 65 bucks...

Never, EVER get a ticket like that unless it’s guaranteed.

And this ticket can't be used any other day because???

Many theme parks only issue tickets for the day of.

Go with someone else, or alone. Unless it’s a horrible theme park, there will be many other people there and you’ll forget your flaky friend.

Generally tickets are cheaper online and waiting at the gate can take a while at a lot of theme parks. Your friend owes you the 65, but she might not feel she does if it was a family emergency or something similar. If she does have a habbit of canceling last min to hang out and things like that previously the writing was on the wall.

what theme park costs $65??

High end ones? Disneyland? Maybe an all inclusive one for special events?

I always make plans ahead of time and not last minute so that they know they will be free.
