Six Flags 2012 season passes

Thursday, September 1, 2011 10:37 AM

I had to do double and triple takes to make sure I was reading this correctly. At least until October 30th, season passes at Six Flags parks are crazy cheap. I paid $90 for my 2011 pass at Great Adventure, and for 2012 it's only $65! As before, next year's pass is good for the rest of this year as well.

In fact, all the parks seem to be selling passes for $60, 65, or 72, with varying deals when buying multiples. At Great Adventure, buying 4 together gets you $5 off each and one free parking pass, but you have to process them at the park before the end of October. At SF America, buying 3 together gets you a 4th pass free in addition to the free parking pass. Wow.

I'm not sure if I'll get to any Flag parks next year, so I was debating about renewing, but heck... that's cheaper than my cell phone bill. I wonder if the prices will go up after October?

I will be getting a SF season pass for next year. What was the result of the parking pass situation? Is it still only good at the park of purchase or did they reinstate it as a chain wide pass?

My pass is for GAdv with parking. I've visited two other SF parks this season. I was NOT charged for parking at SF America in April, but I WAS charged for parking at Great Escape in late June.

SEEMS like a really good deal on the 2012 SP. I wonder what the fine print says.... I'll investigate it on my next visit. If there's no catch, and the pass IS actually less than $70, my credit card will be out faster than you can say El Toro.

If you click through to buy a season pass, it gives the option of a parking pass, which states it's only valid at that park.

^That was *supposed* to be the policy this year chain-wide, but it seems not every park got the memo.

I got my 2011 season pass for $70. I got a discount ticket at work for $30 to get into the park, and then they upgraded it to a season pass for another $39.


So when we going Mike???

I just wish my friend could put his $42 day ticket from Great Escape a week ago toward a 2012 pass, since they weren't selling *any* season passes at the time. I suppose we could call and ask (still have the receipt), but I'm not expecting miracles.

Wasn't one of the first things the management said about Red Zone was that the discounts on admissions and passes were too steep and now they are charging the lowest prices for passes in a few years. In 2008 I paid $59.99 for my Great Adventure pass (1 day online special of $20 off), 2009 I paid $79.99, 2010 I paid $71.99 ($89.99 minus 20% Funatics reward discount) and now they are $64.99 again.

This wasn't part of your original post, was it? And I sent you an e-mail before I saw this. Great minds....well, you know the rest.

I am considering buying this deal. I am somewhat equal distance from both Cedar Point and Great America, this price makes my decision on who I would buy a season pass from. I still remember getting my Season pass to Michigan Adventure the first few years they were brought into the cedar fair chain, it was $80 and included all the other Cedar fair parks.I used that almost every other weekend at Michigan Adventure for the water park and also several times at Cedar Point including Hallowweekends. They made their money on me in food and hotels at Cedar point, but not at Michigan Adventure since I never ate or bought drinks there.

An "all-park" parking pass may be purchased at Guest Relations for an additional $50

Click here and click on "buy and print now" then read the description

Interesting, so $100 for an all-park parking pass. If you go five times to at least two of the $20-parking parks, you'll break even. Not worth it for me, but nice that they offer it.

Also, $100 + $60 (in the case of Great America) brings it strikingly close to the pricing for a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass that gives you a similar package. Kinda funny that the parking component of it costs more than the gate. :)

I believe the last time CP offered the parking as an upgrade, it was $35. At the time I believe parking was $8.

Interestingly, SF America seems to be the only park that mentions the $50 upgrade to all-park parking. Some don't offer a parking pass at all.

That's funny. I never even checked the other parks sites. I just know that America typically has a cheaper pass. That's probably where I'll get it. Fiesta Texas had a pas for about $2 less. But, I don't have any plans to go there, so that obviously doesn't make sense.

Has anyone noticed that the new seasonpasses do not have the year or name of the park where it was purchased on them? Also SFNE is only charging an extra $20 for their all park parkingpass!

heres a pic of the new pass

Holy cow! SFNE's passes are 59.99, buy 3 get 1 FREE, plus FREE parking. Talk about giving away the gate.
