Another season long perk at Six Flags. But the price tag?

It will set you back 500 big ones.

If I lived in the area? Mmmmmmaybe. I spend more a year than that on my Disneyland Resort passes.

I spend less on WDW passes. Funny how it's all relative.

I guess if you're super lazy or something? We go at least 15 times a year, which means we get to ride everything "enough" over the course of a season. I mean, just to break even this essentially means you have to use it 10 days (and presumably not just on 2 hour visits), and if you're already spending 10 full days at the park, haven't you ridden everything a million times? At this price point, I don't know who this is for.

It's for people who think spending more money makes them a smarter, better person. Insert your whoooooge, whooooge, great brain, big fingers Trump joke here.

If I don't have a season The Flash pass, how will you know what an incredibly smart person with no time to take ten seconds to look at the operating schedule on the Internet and see what days will be good to go for smaller crowds I am?

If money is no object, I could see the appeal to this. If my salary were doubled, I'd probably get these for my son and I. But in the mean time, I'll continue to check the webcams, judge the size of the crowds, and decide accordingly.

Went on a weekday in early May a few years ago and walked on almost everything except Tatsu and X. It was empty to the point where my wife and I would walk through entire sections of the park and sometimes not even see an employee (although considering maybe two or 3 food locations were open in the entire park, maybe not that surprising to see no one)! We noticed one poor soul with a FlashPass that day, and couldn't imagine how much of a sucker he felt like after realizing how completely dead it was (it was still like a $60 add on for that day). We were done with the park by like 4pm since we got there at opening.

I imagine this option will be for the "general public" pass holders that get a season pass because of the price compared to a one day ticket and only plan to go during the most crowded seasons (although given the blackout dates that apply, not sure how that would work out). If you can use it on days where FlashPass is a $100+ add on, it will probably be worth it to the pass holder that only visits a few times during that period.

Personally, I only see the value for Fast Pass(s) if I am visiting a park for the first time / out of town (EX: OH to CAL). I don't see any value in this offering but to be fair I am kind of surprised that it hasn't been offered prior to this point. When you look at the industry the parks go to great length to try to promote as mush spending as possible (not faulting them, just stating).

Plus it would appear that Twisted Colossus, Full Throttle and Ninja are excluded.

One of these things is not like the others... 2 of these things are kind of the same! Can you tell which one is not like the others? Now it's time to play our game!

But I'm sure they'd be happy to sell you an upgrade.

If you read my TR from last summer, we paid for the middle version, and it was really all that we needed. Sure, we had to wait in line for TC and Full Throttle, but there was plenty of time to do so because the FP allowed us to save so much time elsewhere. The difference in cost just wasn't worth it to us.

My only visit to Magic Mountain in January 2014 was one of those dream days in a park where the place had a comfortable crowd, but was full of walk ons. I waited about 20 minutes two different times for X (which I only learned later is unheard of), about the same for Tatsu, and a half hour for Full Throttle. Everything else I walked on all day long. Everything was open and ran two trains, except Batman: The Ride, which was still a walkon, and had a sign out front noting it was running one train due to seasonal maintenance. For a park known for spotty operations, I absolutely hit the jackpot. If I were a local I would save my money and simply learn the calendar and go on days like this, much like I do for the Disney and Universal parks as well as planning trips home for Cedar Point.

I just bought the season pass, I think $119 is fair.
