Yes, I tried to find an answer to this on the official website, but no luck.
I live in Chicago, and I am going to be visiting DC next week, and will check out SFA and SFGAdv. If I buy a season pass at SFA, will it be valid at the water park at SFGAm? The Six Flags website says it is not valid at "separate gate" waterparks, but the admission to both parks at Chicago is one gate, so I'm thinking it might work.
Thanks for the help.

Hurricane Harbor is inside of the SFGAm park (it is literally just a new themed area). In other words, yes it will work.

OK, thanks. Apparently, then, a SFA season pass will get me into Hurricane Harbor at SFGAm, but not Hurricane Harbor at SFGAdv, as SFGAdv has a separate admission charge for their waterpark. Strange. Doesn't make a lot of sense -- why have waterpark gate included at one park and not another?

Best guess is that those waterparks that *can* draw enough guests to be profitable as a stand-alone, do....those that can't, get included.
Which only makes us question the SFGAm decision even more, LOL...;)

Maybe I can help you. SFA happens to be my homepark. SFA season pass will work @ SFA Hurricane Harbor and @ SFGAm Hurricane Harbor because its not a separate gate. As long as a waterpark is in a theme park its free with your admission. Lets say 2 parks for the price of 1.
Separate gate Waterparks?
I can't answer that question for you, but some SF waterparks can stand alone and they do attract alot of people. Matter of fact all waterparks can attract people. Maybe someone that lives near a SF separate gate waterpark or knows about their info can tell you why. *** Edited 5/19/2005 4:10:17 PM UTC by SF Critic***

My best guess would be proximity of the water park to the park. SFGAdv's waterpark is a hike from the main park. It's actually off on a side of the access road. Whereas SFA's water park is right there beside the main park.

But isn't HH at SFMM separately gated?
They're so close together that they can't operate Flashback 12 months out of the year...;)

Yes Bill, HH at SFMM is a seperate gate as is the water park at Knott's.

Hope you have a great time at SFA, the park has really turned around its act. And to try and answer your question, I have used my SFA pass at Wild Waves and Enchanted Village and at Elitch Gardens, there both like SFGAm they will let you in because like Matthew said, its just a newly themed area.
