Some RARES entertainment venues, such as but not limited to the African Lion Safari, Darien Lake, Genesee Country Village and Museum, Rochester Museum and Science Center, Santas Workshop at the North Pole, Seneca Park Zoo, Strasenburgh Planetarium, and the Dryden Theatre at the Eastman House do not require advance purchase of tickets.

You may simply show your RARES ID Card to obtain your discount.

Most other amusement parks and sporting venues as well as Regal Movie Cinemas, Cinemark (Tineseltown), AMC/Lowes, and the Little Theatre, as well as the popular Delta Sonic & Buckmans Car Washes DO require advance purchase of tickets - you may NOT pickup tickets at the gate (there's a price you pay for the less expensive tickets and the price is convenience). Many amusement parks offer online electronic e-tickets. Examples include Busch Gardens, Cedar Point, Hershey Park, Seabreeze, SeaWorld, Sesame Place, Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags Great Escape, Universal Studios, Darien Lake season passes and more than six dozen other parks. E-tickets allow you to print and pay for your discounted tickets online ensuring maximum convenience.

Other parks issue paper tickets to the RARES office and you have to obtain these tickets in advance. Paper tickets may be obtained from your RARES Rep at work if your company participates in the consignment ticket program or via mail. In addition to car wash and movie tickets, venues that require you to obtain a paper ticket in advance include, Dorney Park, Enchanted Forest/Water Safari, Martin's Fantasy Island, NYS Fair, and Seabreeze Fun Week tickets. See the instructions below for ordering these tickets by mail.

We offer RARES members mail ordering for tickets to those events and activities that require tickets.

By mail

An option to our web store. Handling charges charges apply and they vary between $1 and $2.50 per order (on a sliding scale - anything over $100 will incur a $2.50 S & H charge). We endeavor to fill orders the same day that they are received (though we cannot always guarantee this due to the variability in mail time delivery). For most local orders, therefore, this means that if you mail an order on Tuesday, you may have the tickets back as soon as Thursday's mail and generally no longer than 4-5 business days. For out of area orders, plan on a few extra days mail time.
