OK, I am supposed to hit Six Flags Great Adventure tomorrow. iI am in DC and am traveling up to New Jersey --3-4 hours. I am from out of town and have not yet gotten a 2005 season pass at my home park. I was going to buy the pass online, print a voucher, and process the pass at the park tomorrow. However, when I go to buy the ticket online, it asks for "zip code" and states that the zip code must be within 300 miles of your "billing address"? Do they check photo id at the park for home address? Is it technically illegal to buy a season pass for a park that you live more than 300 miles away from? This is news to me.
Fine print experts, please advise.

You can buy it in person, but I think you have to be within 300 miles to buy it online.

As RavenTTD stated, just buy the pass at the park. They can care less where you live when you purchase in person.
The online 300 mile rule is to deter people from checking the SF parks season pass prices and finding the cheapest.

Thanks for the info, but now the question becomes: how expensive is the pass at the park? Its 84.95 online, so I'm thinking its close to $100 at the park.

I had that issue when I went to SFStL last year. I am over 300 miles from there. They had a discounted pass online, but a higher price at the park. I had to pay the park price. If you are in DC, maybe you should get a pass at SFA if you have a day to do that.

Are you sure your nor within the 300 mile range for Six Flags Great Adventure. According to Mapquest, Tysons Corner, VA to Jackson, NJ is 163 miles. I live in Germantown, MD (about 30 minutes NW of DC) and didn't have a problem going through the motions of purchasing the pass.
SFA opens at 10:30am on Friday, Season Pass pricing is $65 at the gate the last time I checked and I believe Safeway stores were selling them as well. Remember, you season pass must be processed at the park you purchase it at. *** Edited 5/27/2005 1:47:07 AM UTC by coasterguts***

Yea they do check ID, to make sure your the person they're taking the pic of for the season pass. But even if you buy it, it's fine, the guys that look at the photo ID just ener it in their computer, and make sure names correspond,and like what some people have said above me, your WAY inside the range, your not even 200 miles away, much less 300. But I agree with RavenTTD, get the pass at SFA, it'll be much cheaper, and you could still go to Great Adventure.
