Six Flags Season Pass Question......

Thursday, May 16, 2002 12:49 PM

I was looking at the site for Six Flags to look at their season pass rates, and I take it that it's one pass per park? Does Six Flags have any kind of system that allows state-wide access to any Six Flags park with one pass? For instance, if you buy a pass for SFMM, could it be used at SFMW? Or could a pass from SFOT get you into SFAW or SFFT?

If not, I really think Six Flags could benefit from such a system. Anheuser-Busch has that deal with its parks here in Florida. You have the option to buy an annual pass that gives you unlimited access to BGT, Adventure Island Water Park, & SWO. They even have a "platinum passport" now that gives you admission to all 8 Anheuser-Busch parks for a period of 2 years.

A Six Flags pass from any park (except a few water parks)is good at any SF park worldwide...

Unless it changed this year, a Six Flags pass from any park will get you into the other parks as well (noting the restrictions with Wyandot Lake and such, I believe).

A Season pass from any Six Flags theme park or the following is good at any other Six Flags theme park, Enchanted Village/Wild Waves, The Great Escape, La Ronde, and Wyandot Lake.

For Frontier City/White Water Bay and stand alone Water Parks, it can only be used at the specific park.

For $55 including tax, my SFA season pass will take me to SFA, SFGAdv, SFKK, SFStL, La Ronde, SFGAm, and possibly a couple others this year. It's a bargain that you can't beat with a stick

I thought it was just N. America, not worldwide

Although its' been said a billion time, I might as well chime in.

If you buy a season pass at ANY Six Flags park, it is valid at ANY other Six Flags Park. Not only within the state, but on the planet Earth (with a few noted exceptions, waterparks not included).

I think that it used to be limited to North America, but this year's pass clearly says any Six Flags park with a few noted exceptions, and the overseas parks are not listed in the exceptions.

I just get my SF pass at SFamerica for 50 dollors(my family gets them, $5 cheaper) and use it at SFgadv, i live closer to there.

The key is you will need to process the pass at the park in which you order it. This keeps someone from ordering a pass for a smaller cheaper priced park in the chain and processing it at one of the larger parks. But, you may have already known this though.

Or you could do like I did. My home park is SFGAm which is charging an arm and a leg for season passes this year. I decided it was about time to finally visit SFStl and so I bought my passes down there. This weekend I will be driving down with my Mrs. to process them. Total savings was around 40 bucks each. Not only were the passes themselves cheaper, but they knocked off an additional 10 bucks because we live nowhere near SFStl.

HOw is that for robbing the system? Now, if I never intended to visit SFStl during the year, it would have been a waste as we would be paying for travel expenses and such and any savings would have been eaten up before we crossed the Missouri state line, but since we havent been before, this is a great deal. This pass can be used at any SF property except stand alone water parks.

Now my only question is, can I take that SFStl pass and but a parking pass at SFGam with it? We will see, we will see.

....that'll be good info there, KTS....

but I still want my CHAIN-WIDE parking pass - I don't have an SF "homepark", so it doesn't really make sense to buy a parking pass anywhere....We've gotten SF season passes thru SFKK, SFA, SFoG just in the past three years, and you'd be AMAZED how many SF parks send me snail-mail/info....I keep it all and Jill thinks I'm crazier than Howard Hughes....but then again...:)

I don't think you'll be able to buy a parking pass without having a season pass from that particular park. Of course you won't get any other perks that may come with your home park's pass (like the 25% food discount we get at SFOT with the Texas Gold pass). I expect parking revenue remains with the particular property you're visiting. There's a wide range of parking prices at the various parks.

And then there's Frontier City, a Six Flags property (actually the original Premier park) that specifically is excluded from all other parks season pass, and their's isn't good at any of the other parks. What's up with that?

Wow.........I guess it is worth the money, then. I saw the $54.99 cost and thought, "Surely this is only good for one park only". If it's valid for ANY SF park, though.......that IS a heck of a deal. I don't have a Six Flags near me here in Florida, but I was considering taking a trip up to SFOG and picking up a season pass there sometime this summer. Thanks for the info, Buzzers!

Let me add a related question to this... In the coupon booklet that came with my SFKK season pass, I read that the pass is only good until 11/3. I can understand that as far as SFKK goes -- it closes that day. But what about other SF parks ... specifically SFMM? I was hoping to take a trip to California over Thanksgiving and use my pass there. Will it still be valid?

Thanks!

Oherion:

Take it with you and try. The worst thing that can happen is that they tell you it's no good. Face it, the cost of park admission is small change if you are traveling from Louisville to Los Angeles.

A Six Flags state-side passport is not able to get you into the Six Flags parks in Europe. You need a Euro Season Passport to go to those parks but it won't be accepted in the States either. I already have a Euro Six Flags passport for this year and am ready to use it to the extent. . .
