The pass says right on it non refundable. So You would not get your money back if the park is closed.

They offered a refund to passholders the year SFWOA was sold, IIRC.

I kept mine that year. :)

There are strict rules regarding disclosure of the sale of assets this large before an offical announcement. Even if they knew a sale was coming in a month, they would not telegraph it by cancelling season pass sales.

matt.'s avatar So very true. Can you imagine how long this thread would be if SFMM *weren't* selling passes?

yes, but Six Flags passes are good chainwide. So why would you buy a SFMM one-day ticket?

When a person goes to California, goes to SFMM, goes back home to Michigan and doesn't plan on going to another SF park for a long time since there are better choices in the area.

I know one thing, I certainly would not be buying 2007 passes this early knowing the current situation of the company.

1) I'm not certain I'd want to attend a Six Flags park next year, not even the current CEO has confidence in his product right now. How sad is that?

2) If the park closes, I don't want to deal with refund issues. I'll just hold on to my money thank you very much.

3) $59.99 or whatever they're charging is serious gas money I can use NOW. My current pass is good until Dec anyway. *** Edited 10/1/2006 9:40:20 PM UTC by DWeaver***

Mamoosh's avatar Amen DWeaver! 2007 will be the first time in 19 years that I am not purchasing a Six Flags season pass. I will renew my Cedar Fair pass and might entertain a Disney annual pass as well.

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. A Cedar Fair pass is a must next year for obvious reasons, and we always get Disney APs no matter what. 2007 would also be the first year I skipped the SF pass as well, but I don't feel like it's a worthwhile purchase anymore as (sadly some folks predicted) Shapiro and Co can't seem to live up to some early promise. Forget SFMM, none of the other parks in the chain peak my interest either. The whole thing just feels stale and tired, and I'm tired of supporting such a sad sack organization.

Too bad. *** Edited 10/2/2006 4:55:09 AM UTC by DWeaver***

rollergator's avatar ^ Shame, too, because Shapiro and Snyder DID have the information needed to fully realize they had just ONE chance left...enthusiasts are one thing, but the people you talk to as you travel around the country are another animal altogether - and they have HAD it!

Was there ever really any doubt that SFMM would continue to operate? I mean, seriously now, the operation is making a little bit of money, and it is for sale. I think it's a no-brainer: Six Flags continues to operate the park until such time as it sells, and the only reason it would close would be if it sells to a developer who wants to use the land for something else. It makes no sense to close the park just to close it. They did that with AstroWorld, but that was really little more than the previous administration administering a final insult to the current group. Right now the park is presumably making at least as much money as it costs to operate. As long as that is the case, it is cheaper to operate the park than it is to close it down. In fact, in another month or so, operating SFMM on the weekends (and more) through the end of December will bring in a whole lot more money than all those parks that are sitting closed for the winter.

Although I do see that operating dates for 2007 are not set yet...

Heh, we love our Six Flags location down here in the South. :D

^As is the case for the SF park in Chicago.

Since I live near a well run SF park, the SF season pass will be in my wallet for 2007.


My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
