Six Flags Season Passes

Wednesday, April 26, 2006 5:08 PM
Are SF passes still go throughout the whole chain? I've only owned one, and that was back in 2001...

I'm planning on SFGAm and SFKK on one trip, SFoG later in the year, and me and a couple friends are eyeing SFFT/SFoT, as well, on a little road trip.

Thanks!

Yes, they are good at every SF owned park except Frontier City.

My advice to you is to get the cheapest pass from whichever park you are within the 300 mile radius from.

My girlfriend and I got ours from SFKK because we had planned on taking a trip down there this year, and SFGAm is our home park. We ended up saving $40.00 a pass, and next year we can just process them online for the SFKK price with no need to visit the park. The only thing that sucks is that SFGAm's parking pass is $60.00 this year which means we will pay more to park then to play in the park. It sucks. :o(

Caine, your advice would work if gas prices were around $1.50 a gallon. I don't know what you're paying for gas in the midwest, but if it's anywhere around what it is here in Maryland (around $3 or higher), I don't think it would make much economic sense to make the drive back and forth. And because your mileage per gallon may vary depending on your vehicle, you could come out losing.

Is that still true, or I thought Six Flags dumped that park?

^ IIRC, when they announced moving HQ to NYC, there was something said that, reading BETWEEN the lines, indicated that "FC isn't long for the new SF chain". May not have been THAT plain, but it wasn't too far off....

They are operating Frontier City through the end of the season.

I see what you are saying IntaminFan. Ouch...$3.00 a gallon or higher. We are actually kind of lucky right now. Our prices here in Indiana have been around roughly 2.85 for a few weeks. With SFGAm opening day on Saturday, I hope the prices don't go up.

The only reason I suggested doing what we did was because (like my girlfriend and myself) he was already planning on going to the other parks anyway. If you are within the radius, why not get the cheaper pass for this year and for the future?

True, but if you are the type of enthusiast who will make a trip out to an extra park at the drop of a hat, then the savings of the cost of season's passes washes out the increased fuel costs. I think it's called backwards arithmatic - but it justifies making the trip to get the passes, and gives you some additional coaster riding opportunities!

I bought a four pack of parking passes months back online before they went up and only paid $23.25 each for SFGAm. Oh and four different friends went in on these.
