I am traveling up to Darien Lake on Wednesday the 31st and was wondering how much they charge for parking. Thanks for your help!

Around $8. That's why they've been usually charging for all the Six Flags parks.

OK, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was the same price at all SF parks. I know at my home park, SFWOA, it's $8 and I didn't really pay attention at SFMM because we had ACE parking passes for CoasterCon.

At SFEG it is a whopping $8.00. Not too bad and if you have a season pass you get two $2.00 off coupons.

So I just show them my season pass from SFWOA and I get to park for free? Wow, if that's true then that's pretty cool.

God these prices are rediculous! Most people already got to pay an arm for admission and a leg for food! Lets not forget those upcharge attractions. You're better off bringing your whole bank account! :-) I think the worst is SFOG and SFNE at $10. Great Escape parking is free!!!

this is out of hand!
we are paying way to much for crap. if you go by yourself to a park you have 40 to get in 9 to park and about 15 to eat all day. then you cant even get on all the rides cause half of them cost money too. thats $64 for one day at a park. plus gas money. that is really expensive. really expensive. for one day. you will get on about 20 rides the whole day. that is a huge rip off. instead of the media bashing coaster safety they should be bashing park prices!

Six Flags Great Adventure charges 10 dollars. This is just rediculous. I dont think that parks should charge this much. Thank god for a parking pass though.

I think that if you purchase a season pass, then it includes parking fees or get 1/2 off, automatically by flashing ur pass. It is 7 bucks to get in SFDL, but almost every time ive gone this season, ive gotten dropped off. Wait here's an idea, just say your dropping off, then they let you in through the parking gates, then knock yourself out and park the car, until they catch you at least ;).

I've got a better idea, why dont coaster enthusiasts stop being such cheap bastards and accept that this hobby is expensive. I mean, why should ANYONE besides YOU help finance YOUR addiction? That's like a crack addict asking the drug dealer to supply the pipe and lighter for free because they are loyal customers! If you cant pay, you cant play...PERIOD.

Very little about this diversion from reality pisses me off more than bellyaching about prices...

2hostyl.
are you rich?

thats why they keep raising the prices. cause people like you dont care about paying all these sky rocket prices.mind you i do nothing but complain to people about them.

take my home park canadas wonderland.
i would have no problem with them raising the parking if they had to pay for something. if they got a hyper and wanted to raise the price for next year only! to 850 wrather then 750 i would be more then willing to pay. but when there just raising the price for profit only it pisses me off.
but come on when you go on a coaster trip, i dont think your happy about puting out $6average at every park you hit. im going to 7 parks next year thats $42 just to park. i dont like it, would you? and i understand that this is an expensive hobby but like i said about my home park there just pocketing the money or its going to other parks.

FDL: Compared to about 70% of this world, yes I am rich. And more than likely, you are too.

But more on the subject at hand, you pay for what you want to pay for. When I see things I want at a price I'm willing to pay, I buy them. If I think they are too expensive, I do NOT buy them. But what I do NOT do is buy something that I think is too expensive and then complain that I'm being ripped off. You are NEVER being ripped off until you actually pay. With the exception of things like taxes, you are free to choose where you spend your money.

Enthusiasts on boards like these seem to miss this concept. There are several places around the world where you can experience our shared interest cheaply. If one of those places is not within your reach TOUGH. Practice an art little used in the USA call "delayed gratification". That is, deny yourself your "coaster fix" now and wait till you can afford (time and moneywise) to do it at a place where you feel comfortable.

But once you lay down your money, IMO, it is an acceptance that the price was fair.

And just for the record, my last little "coaster trip" and I use the phrase loosely as I only visited two parks, ran me oh about eight, nine hundred dollars when all was said and done. But you see, I budget for that extravagance. If one cant afford the parking charges, then perhaps one
needs to re-evaluate how often that person visits parks in a car. Possibily, other transportation of better yet, other *entertainment* should be considered.

Like Black Sheep said back in the early nineties, "The Choice Is Yours"!

I have no problem paying for parking, but FDL is right. There are ppl out there that keep paying for upcharges, that is why stupid SFDL just has upcharges. ppl pay for them. The park won't get a new coaster, but insteda will get upcharges. That's what ppl pay for, fine, do you think SF's cares if SFDL has coasters or not? They just want profit and they won't put a good ride in the park probally until ppl stop paying for upcharges.
