SF Season Pass confusion

Friday, June 12, 2009 1:55 PM

Oyba!!!

First off let me start with the fact that I have never been to a Six Flags park.

When I go to the SF site I see that each park has a different price for their season pass but all passes are good at all of the listed parks. So from this it seems that SFA is the cheapest at $49.99.

When we were at CM, I talked to a couple that just got their SF season passes at SFKK for $29.99. The site lists this at $54.99. I don't know if they offer discounts to coaster club members, but I could find no information about this.

I also could not find out information about season pass parking. Some parks have this, others do not. Is this good for all of the SF parks or just the one that it is issued at. I tried to call SFA but after 10 minutes of getting recycled through the menu I gave up.

SFA is our first planned SF trip along with KD & BGW for the end of June. I could run down to SFKK before then as we will be half way there the week before for a KI trip.

Please help me by shedding some light on where I should get my SF season passes.

It's possible that if they got into the park on a free ticket they were able to upgrade their ticket to a season pass for that $29.99 amount. Although, I thought I recall at some point that there was an "out-of-town" pass where if you lived outside a certain radius of the park you'd be able to get a pass for much cheaper. Not sure they still have that option, though...

Six Flags season pass parking can be a bit frustrating. It's $45 no matter where you go and is applicable towards parking at any Six Flags minus SFKK. One other note is that some Six Flags allow you to park in Preferred Parking, but this varies so ask the attendant once at the park. You can purchase it on the Six Flags site for many parks and you can't for others. I know that SFOG just recently added the season long parking option to their site but SFA doesn't have that option on their site. I'd also highly doubt that you'd be able to purchase season long parking if you go the SFKK route since they don't accept parking passes there. Your best bet is to pay for the parking at the park, then take your receipt and go to a ticket window to have the $15 applied toward the season pass parking (again, assuming you're going to SFA).

Long story short, it sounds like you should take care of that at SFA. Have a great time!

I'm not sure how long they've done the promotion, but the last 2 years just before Christmas, they have had 20% discounts on all parks season passes for a day or 2. I got mine out the door for $35.99

I am done with Six Flags PERIOD! I was at SFA on Sunday, Me and my family had the worst experience i have ever experienced at an Amusement park. We were in our seats on Superman Ride of Steel. My wife and my son (16) were already buckled in and lap bars down. My son and i were getting buckled in because the two in the seats took a little longer to get out of there seats.
Anyways As we were buckling in, the train started to move. I yelled STOP because my son had not had had his Lap bar down.
Now don't these rides have sensors that will not allow the train to dispatch if all lap bars are not secured?
That was our first trip to Six Flags and will be our LAST!

^ that sound scary, very scary. I hope you reported this to GR.

Six Flags just called me. They did confirm that their parking pass was $45 and was good at all Six Flags them parks. She also confirmed that the $49 season passes were the cheapest at any park that she knew of.

A tip for SFKK...

I just made the mistake of buying a season pass at Kentucky Kingdom for 54.99. Why is that a mistake? Because a day's admission at Kentucky Kingdom is $29.99, and once inside the park you can apparently upgrade your admission ticket to a season pass for $20.00. $29.99 + $20.00 = $49.99 < $54.99

So if you go to Kentucky Kingdom, save yourself $5 by NOT buying a season pass until you're inside.

Kentucky Kingdom also has a 6-ticket deal for $29.99 but the tickets are NOT TRANSFERRABLE and they are for Kentucky Kingdom ONLY. So you can go to Kentucky Kingdom 6 times for the price of one (why would you want to?) but you can't use that deal to bring five friends, and the tickets are not good at other Six Flags parks.

I wonder if those $10 tickets could be upgraded to season passes.

They also have these things called ride ops who are supposed to check all lap bars and restraints before dispatching the coaster. Or at least I thought. Somebody might have gotten an important call on their cell phone when you were getting on the train. Kobe probably made some really great play.

I am surprised Six Flags doesn't start doing a buy one get one free season pass deal. They seem to be coming down on admission prices and giving away cheap $10 tickets or visit 6 days for $30.

The person I talked to at SFA said they don't currently sell 1 day passes. If you want in, you get a season pass since it is the same price. I am sure they are hoping to get people to come back and by food & sodas. If the crowds are bigger, then they will sell more q-bots too.

I can understand you being upset, but does that really have anything to do with this topic?

I got my season parking pass at Great Escape for $30.

Hmm...I wonder if I can get a pass at one park and parking from another. I live in Texas and get an oT pass, but my in laws drive past Great Escape every week. Hmm....

I don't think so. From what I remember the parking has to be put on at the time that you get the pass.

A friend skipped getting her pass at SFKK because they don't offer parking (SF does not own the parking lot) but got it at SFA with parking.

I have also heard that sometimes you can get your SFKK parking refunded at GR.

Season passes were about the same price as a day pass at SFA, if I remember correctly. There isn't enough to do at that park, for me, that warrants a season pass. I bought a buy/get one free ticket when we went. There was no date stamp for them, so you could use them whenever.

A friend of mine was under the impression that the SFA season pass wouldn't be honored at SF Great Adventure. I did not research it, but it would make sense since the SFGA season pass costs so much more.

It would make sense, but it's not true. SF season passes are good at all SF parks.

A 1 day admission to SFA is $49.99. You can get a ticket or a Season Pass. Take the season pass option. Process it at the park and get parking. Next year they will mail you a season pass before the season starts and you can activate it online. You won't even have to drive to Maryland if its not near you. This is what I do and I live in NJ.

The parking pass is $45 and the put a P on the pass and its good at all SF parks.

We got ours at SFA yesterday. Your SFA pass is good at all of the SF parks. The process took about 5 minutes for the 4 of us. We got coupon books that we actually used 5-6 coupons out of.

While I agree that SFA does not have enough to hold my interest for more then 2 trips per season. I loved the park. The employees were great and the park was very clean.

We purchased our SF passes for SFMM and didn't notice that they had a season parking option until our third visit. We purchased the season parking option and took the receipt to season pass processing, where they replaced my current pass with a new one that denoted free parking.

We then took a trip back east and used the pass and the parking at SFGAdv and SFA.

Count me among the surprised (not sure how I missed this). I guess it makes sense, since IIRC the parking there had been on a grass/gravel lot, and I think I read that they had paved it. Still, those parking passes are good at EVERY park SF owns, just like the (typical) $45 parking pass available anywhere. I have paid for the parking after-the-fact of obtaining a season pass, so I don't believe you have to pay for parking when you buy your SP (at least that was true 2-3 years back).
