Just a quick question, I want to get a season pass for Six Flags but my homepark is Great America which is one of the most expensive. If I ordered a pass from Ohio ,where its $40 less, online would that work, or do they take your picture or something at the park you ordered the pass from.

On the mail order passes, SF has a distance limit. I don't remember exactly what it is.
What you get when you order a pass by mail is actually a voucher. (Unless renewing a previous pass) You have to take the voucher to the park that it was purchased for. You get your picture taken there and they issue the pass.
The only way to save on this is to drive to the other park and purchase the pass there. There is still one catch. If you purchase the pass at another park, you won't be able to get a season parking permit at your home park. You can only get them for the park that your pass is from.

Ok thanks a lot. I had a feeling that would be how it would work.

I believe the distance limit is 300 miles. Living in Detroit there is not a park close enough to order the pass online (I believe).
So, Joe C, another friend and I all drove to SFKK on our first PKI trip this year to purchase season passes there. at $55 it is not a bad deal, especially since I will visit also SFGadv and SFGAm this season. Quite possible I will be Visiting up to 4 outher SF properties as well.
Of course, I am one of those MGs who have The great trifecta of Season Passes. PKI, Cedar Point, and Six Flags.

I did not know about the renewing rule. I live in MN, but I had a SFStL pass last year, and I received an invitation to renew in the mail. Thinking that I could not do it without going back, I just ignored it. Could I renew by mail? I am more than 300 miles.

I renew online and they just send this year's pass with last year's photo.

You should be able to do the Wyandot Lake pass, which is one of the cheapest at $49.99.

Thanks Gonch. For some reason I never thought of that.
