Six Flags giving away exclusive night in park for lucky pass buyers

Six Flags today announced "Dream Nite," a promotion that will give six winners at each park an exclusive night at their park, and the chance to invite up to 100 of their friends and family to celebrate with them.

Read the press release on PR Newswire.

I think it's a cool idea but doubt it will really increase season pass sales that much.

Surprised they have Darien Lake listed... seems like they will have ownership for sure next year in their point of view?

--and that leads me to a (sort of off topic) question... when cedar fair took over Worlds of Adventure, what was the situation with the season passes in regards to the OTHER parks in the chain? I vaguelly remember them offerring a refund for those who wanted it, but i'm almost sure nobody got access to the other SF parks, is this correct?

debating whether i should go for a $49 pass [which by the way you can get access to frightfest THIS year... ie: 3 days left ;P]

EDIT: oh, you can enter for free by the way, just read the fine print :-P

Nope this is from the rules


"Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize with another prize of equal or greater value for any reasons (including if the applicable Dream Night Theme Park is sold or otherwise becomes unavailable for use as determined by Sponsor)."

Open to legal residents of the forty-eight (48)
contiguous United States (excluding the states of Alaska, Hawaii, and
Florida)

So is it 48 or 47?

Mamoosh's avatar Finding 100 friends is easy. Finding 100 friends who still wish to visit a SF park, even if free? Now THAT is difficult! ;)

I guess since they submit a 1099 it gets added to your income for the year. Hell that might put me in a higher tax bracket!


Each winner that is a United States resident will be issued a United States Internal Revenue Service 1099 tax form for the approximate retail value ("ARV") of the prize. ARV of each prize in this Sweepstakes is estimated to be four thousand four hundred eighty dollars (U.S. $4,480), which includes the cash value of the stipend, with the aggregate value of all prizes to be awarded estimated to be four hundred thirty thousand eighty dollars (U.S. $430,080).

^ So, instead of being out $60 for having a crappy day at a six flags park, you will be out $1100 (because of the tax hit).

If I would win, I would decline it. No six flags park is worth $1100 (even if you had the whole park to yourself).

Just give me the $4,480.00 and I will be a happy camper.

Yeah i see they didn't mention Wild Waves and Enchanted Village so i'm guessing that they r probably really close to signing a deal to get rid of the park after this season it looks like. Even though six flags put a lot of money towards there fright fest event this year. I'm thinking that Fright Fest is going to be the send off for Enchanted Village once the season is over.

SFoGswim's avatar It says there will be six winners from each park. Will they all be there on the same night? So much for having the park to yourself.
