The ticket office at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point Mugu — where active duty and retired military personnel, their dependents and civilian employees can buy discount tickets to amusement parks, ski resorts, movie theaters and other entertainment venues — has moved.

The ticket office is now located in the newly renovated NEX complex, across the breezeway from the Point Mugu Gym, around the corner from the strip of retail shops that includes a Subway, barber shop, fitness store and credit union.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the renovated complex took place Thursday, Jan. 17, with Deborah Williams, site manager for community support programs, complimenting Public Works and Morale, Welfare and Recreation for “pulling together this whole thing.”

“Now everything is integrated,” she said of the complex.

Work began over the summer to redo the storefronts, lighting, covered walkways and drainage systems. New energy-efficient windows were installed, as was a handicapped-accessible ramp. The retail shops also got a new heating and air conditioning system, and fire sprinklers were updated.

“This was definitely a challenge for everyone involved,” said Lt. Alex Rovinsky of NBVC’s Public Works Department. “All the businesses needed to maintain operations during the project. It was a challenge, but we overcame it.”

The Mugu Ticket Office helps more than 6,500 people obtain discount tickets each year to such destinations as Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Sea World, Legoland and the San Diego Zoo.

Discounts are also available for See’s Candy gift certificates and rental cars.

The ticket office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The ticket office at NBVC Port Hueneme has the same hours and is located near the bowling alley next to the Welcome Center. It helps more than 16,000 people each year.
