In honor of the park's 40th anniversary, season pass holders can upgrade to the "2001 Celebration Season Pass." For an extra $29.99, guest will receive free admission to selected local attraction, free sport tickets, a 25% discount on regular priced food and gifts, a free t-shirt, and, perhaps best of all, ERT on Titan and other rides. The upgrade is only available for a limited time.
Read the whole story on the official Six Flags over Texas site.

That's a good idea. They should have done that with Great America with it's 25 year celebration.

Yes, but Great America wasn't the first Six Flags park.

"so what who gives a darn"
Just think where all these parks that Six Flags has bought would be if that had not happened. Yes, I know some would be better off but then step back further and look at where the amusement park industry would be without Six Flags. Six Flags parks have had a number of firsts: 1st mine train, log flume, inverted, floorless, water rapids, and a few more. Though not all of these were/are at SFoT but you get the picture.

six flags did not have the first log flume!

Yes, Six Flags over Texas DID have the first log flume, along with... Mine train, freefall ride (Cliffhanger/G-Force/Wildcatter), roller coaster with back-to-back vertical loops (Shockwave), and nearly the first parachute ride (beaten by SFoG by a few days).

You know, Cedar Point should do this too... Wait, they do. It's called Millennium Mania. If all theme parks could have the compassion that those privately owned or owned by a small corperation did.
The idea is a great one, and I think it should be spread to other parks BUT...
It should be in limited numbers. I don't know. Maybe the first few thousand that buy it should get the benefit of the extra money (with the park offering the cheaper one, of course, as an alternative.) If everyone buys this pass, the ERT will be no more than 'stand in line until 2 AM for one ride.'

also six flags helped b and m become what they are today. Iron Wolf, there first coaster is at six flags great america and batman the ride which basicclly made b and m were built by great americ and six flags. I feel if it wasn't six flags willing to take chances on new rides bring us the
the best new rides the buisness wouldnt of developed as fast as it did. Another example is the x coaster. we all expect it to be incredible bt it also might be bad which i doubt but there taking that chance. i love six flags and i appreciate what they have done for us.

Ever hear of the Joe Cool Club, new for 2001 at Cedar Point? Sounds like a variation on the same theme...

Today is the last day you can buy them according to the signage. Alot of people were looking at the sign but then decided not to get them after they found out they would pay $54.99 for the normal season pass + another $29.99 for the Celebration Pass. Not to mention season parking is $35.00 this year, but it's good for 2 people.

FYI-SFTexas did too have the first Arrow Log Flume. Since they own the US patent, it counts as #1 in the IAAPA books. Ther Mill Race at Cedar Point was #2.

All true, but Six Flags then was a fine, fine company. Six Flags now is a Premier-owned company with the wrong priorities. Please, don't insult the fine work done by the previous owners of the Six Flags properties by mentioning them in the same breath as the Premier Pretenders.
