Need help with SFKK.

Tuesday, February 17, 2004 12:30 PM
If any locals in the Louisville area can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

The SFKK website on the homepage said the park would open on March 27th. Now, it doesn't say anything and they don't have the schedule up yet. Does anyone know if infact they are opening at this time?

Since my SFGAm 2004 season passes can't be processed at that time, I would need to pay admission into SFKK. Are there generally discount tickets for SFKK at the beginning of the season? If so, where could I pick some up in the area?

We plan on visiting the weekend of April 3rd.

Thanks alot in advance.

You should have waited to renew and picked up SFKK passes for much cheaper than you paid for SFGAm passes ;)

Sorry, had to say it!

I know Bob, but this decision to visit was made yesterday.

My daughter and I need a coaster fix, so I am willing to front the money for admission. :)

If you take your 2004 SFGAm season pass voucher (assuming you have one) to SFKK and explain your situation to those in Guest Relations, they very well might let you in, especially considering the fact that SFGAm would not yet be open for the season. I visited SFKK with my SFGAm season pass voucher during SRM 2001 without a problem by just explaining I hadn't had the chance to get it processed yet.

Otherwise, there's the possible option of early pass processing if SFGAm is doing that this year...

I ordered my SFKK pass for $39.99 online, paid an additional $10.00 for 4-day S&H and they mailed the actual hard pass to me.

If SF has a former Season Pass pic on file, then you do not need to process it at the park when the park opens. This worked out very well since I will be visiting SFMM in 2 weeks.

I looked on the SFKK website (as painful as that was) and they have a disclaimer saying that they will not let you in if your pass isn't processed under any circumstances.

I have a question too though. If I origionally purchased my Season Pass at SFWoA and they have my picture on file, can I renew at SFKK and have an actual hard pass sent to me with my picture? I have thought about it and it is $20 cheaper for me to renew at SFKK rather than SFWoA. I wouldn't want to drive down there though to get it processed. I would be using a friends address to be within the 300 mile guidence mark. *** Edited 2/17/2004 8:37:14 PM UTC by Sarah Jackson***

They might let you do that, but they might also check your friend's address against your credit card address. Ticketmaster did just that down here in Texas for last year's Spurs/Mavs playoff series, denying tickets for Spurs home games to anyone who lived outside of a 150-mile radius of San Antonio (preventing Dallas-area Mavs fans from attending). Final ticket sales were contingent on your given address matching the address on your credit card.

Or you can go back to SFKK later in the year and wait a week to open PKI with us on the 9th-11th weekend, Chitown (or do both haha). :)

Trust me Danny, I was hoping for that, but unfortunately, I can only get an extended weekend on the 3rd.

Well, I will bring my SFGAm vouchers with me and hope for the best (beg and plead?) :)

Im surprised Great America isn't having any "advance" processing. Geauga Lake is having their near the end of March.

Sure, but like I said, they let me in without even a hint of a fight. The website said the same thing the year I went. And SFGAm already *was* open for the season when they let me in with just a voucher!

If it comes down to letting you in with an unprocessed pass or not letting you in at all, they're probably going to let you in, especially with SF supposedly working on their customer service this season. After all, you'd think they'd much rather have you spending money in the park than not at all.

If I were you, I'd call SFGAm and voice your concerns. The ideal thing to do would be to get to SFGAm's early pass processing but I realize that may not be feasable. Basically, if you can't get to the early processing, then I'd definitely bring your vouchers to SFKK and give it a shot...but I wouldn't count on it as guaranteed admission.

That is probably your best bet. There is no harm in trying, and it would be good custumer sevice on their part. If they don't, they you just would pay addmission like you expected to anyways.

As for discounts, I am not local to the area, but as a general rule, you should hit up every rest stop in the area until you find one. Usually the brochures have discounts on them.

Go to and find store in louisville area and get phone number and call them about their discounted tickets. Also you should be fine about going April 3rd, opening weekend was April 5th and 6th last year.

I wish that they would post there operating dates for god sake...............people are planning there vacations at this time.

I cant understand why they wouldent have them posted yet, Every other park that we are going to visit this summer does. If there opening date is march 27th, than who would know? And what are there hours of operation?

Gotta love the six flags franchise for always being on top of things.

Tell them you don't have that interranet thing yet and can't view their policies. They wouldn't know if you bought it online or not would they?

I went to Kroger there last year to buy mine, if you need any directions.

Wednesday, February 18, 2004 3:38 PM
Actually, I didn't buy my vouchers online this year. I got them at Jewel(local grocery store in Chicago area).

I called them a month ago and they confirmed being open March. 27. Hours are only like 11-6 or something though.

That's fine. I will be hitting the park both days (Saturday and Sunday) and I also want to check out some other interests in the Louisville area. It looks like the Louisville zoo is just down the highway from the park.

I had a similar problem last year. My wife and I were going to SFMM in March, and we couldn't get season passes in the preseason because we live in Western New York. We called SFMM to see if they would make an exception to the 300 mile deal and they said no. So we called SFDL (our home park) and told them the deal by calling the administrative office (that was the only place with anyone there, since it was early January and they don't open till mid-May). They said we could come there and they would process a SFDL pass for us right then and there. So, we went to SFMM with our SFDL passes long before that park was even open. Its worth a try, they were very courteous to us about the whole ordeal. Of course this year we renewed online, so we avoided the whole problem should it arise again.

If I'm not mistaken Six Flags has a rule that you can only get a season pass from a park if you live within 400 miles of the park. Not for sure but I live in Joliet, IL and got a cheaper pass from SFSL. Their people said if I lived over 400 miles from the park I would have to pay the higher price at SFGAM. Has anyone else heard of this?
