Six Flags Season Passes

Is a Six Flags season pass good for all of the Six Flags parks, or do you buy a pass for a specific park?

Good for all parks but not seperate water parks.

so would it be possible to buy the cheap marine world season pass and use it at magic mountain? or rather, would I have to go to Valejo to buy the pass? or could I just do it online? thanks

Well, you'd have to live within 300 miles of the park to buy the season pass.

Yes, the cheaper pass makes sense - we get ours at SFWOA (almost 400 miles away) rather than SFGAdv (90 miles) However, to combat this practice with online purchases (disguised as "security reasons") you must live within a 300 mile radius of the park to order. Otherwise we'd just all order the cheapest pass online. If you plan on visiting several SF parks in a season stop at the one with the cheapest passes first.

I have a question that runs off of this one. I got my 2003 season pass last year but have now hopelessly lost it (it is in the woods somewhere near Batwing at SFA). What does it cost to replace, or do I have to buy a whole new one?

BTW, it was originally from SFGAdv.

I'm not sure on this but it might be a $10.00 fee for re- issuing your pass if you lost it.

Your best bet though would be to simply order a new pass,the bad thing about it is that your gonna have to pay the original price for it which is around $100.00 for a SFGRADV pass.

The charge for a replacement pass was $10 when my daughter lost hers a couple of years ago. It only took a few minutes at the customer service window. They don't take a new photo, they just use yours that they have stored in their computer. Certainly much cheaper that buying a whole new pass.

Back to the original question. Last year's season pass was good at all SF branded amusement parks world wide. It was also good at some SF owned parks that are not branded such as Great Escape, but not at some of the other unbranded parks. The season pass was not good at water parks with a separate admission or I bleieve at wildlife exhibits with a separate admission. I would expect that the policy will be the same this year.

Wyandot Lake passes were good for all Six Flags parks last year, and vice versa. That's a good deal. The one time I've had a pass, I got it at SFWoA for like $49.

Jim, are you sure it was valid *world-wide*. I was under the impression that a SF pass was valid at all N. American SF parks...if they're good in Europe too, then the '04 "European Vacation" (sans Chevy Chase) would be a little cheaper....

'Gator,

From the back of my 2002 pass (which I renewed online and have the sticker for 2003) it says,


Where may this pass be used? FOR SIX FLAGS THEME PARKS, ENCHANTED VILLAGE/WILD WAVES, THE GREAT ESCAPE, LA RONDE AND WYANDOT LAKE PASSES: Once processed at the park shown on the reverse side, your season pass may be used at any Six Flags Theme Park, Enchanted Village/Wild Waves, The Great Escape, La Ronde and Wyandot Lake on regular operating days (not valid at waterparks or Frontier City/White Water Bay).

All text shown above is formatted the same as it is on my card, no emphasis has been added...

I live in Oklahoma and have purchased SF season passes from StL several times before. I don't understand why SF Inc. will not offer a Season Pass to Frontier City that can be used at the other Six Flags Parks! My family would definately buy several Frontier City season passes if we could use it at other SF parks.

I know they combo the Frontier City/White Water Bay pass, and probably sell a butt load. But I wish they would offer a Frontier City/Six Flags pass for those of us that choose not to go to the water park, but want to go to SFOT and SFStL instead.

Does anybody know if you can buy a SF waterpark pass, and if it is good at all SF waterparks or just the one you got it from? If I had any say in the matter of SF season passes this is what I would offer:

1. Waterpark/Thrill Park Pass (Combo pass for places like Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Oklahoma City, etc. places that have separate thrill parks and water parks. This pass would only be good at these parks in the customer's city of choice).

2. Thrill Park Pass (just like the pass is now, except include all thrill parks including Frontier City).

3. Water Park Pass (a season pass that would get you into all SF owned/operated waterparks).

4. Super Pass (a season pass that gets you into everything SF).

There is an exception to the 300 mile rule. If you bought your pass last year at a park that was more than 300 miles away you may still renew under that park and doing it online means you dont have to visit that park to process again this year. I bought my pass at Six Flags St Louis last year even though my home park is the much more expensive Great America and I renewed online and already have my stickers for my pass for 2003 so it can be done without a doubt.

By the way, to all you Six Flags haters out there that think all of their customer service sucks, when I renewed, I got a call about 3 days later (I thought they were calling to tell me I couldnt do it). Because I have a funky rural address they called to see if I really entered the right thing in when ordering the pass. Seeing as how they could have just sent it out and hope it was right, I really appreciate the extra work they took to make it right.

Yes, Six Flags passes work world wide. Last September, I took a trip to Mexico and stopped by Six Flags Mexico in Mexico City. We had no problems getting in what-so-ever other than pass-swiper wasn't working & the entrance employee having to write down our pass numbers on a piece of paper.

Another question on this topic: With last year's SFMW season pass there was some information handed out about how the pass expired at some date in October, presumably the last day of operation at SFMW. Even when I checked the on-line renewal, it indicated that my pass had expired in October. So does that mean that the pass wouldn't have been good at SFMM in November or December?

Finally figured out my season pass problems. Thought I might be able to help some others.

1) The 2002 season pass for your home park expires the day your park closes for the season. Thus, a 2002 SFKK season pass expired back in October.

2) If you have the chance of renewing online, do that and get the sticker, unless you really want a new card (or like me the computer said you weren't a 2002 passholder. Confused cause I was holding my pass in my hand) This will let you into any other park that is still open no even if your park hasn't opened yet.

3) If you already purchased a new pass and have recieved the voucher but you plan on going to another park, say SFMM, before your home park opens, say SFKK, just call the park you plan to visit and tell them the situation. I called SFMM beacuse I will be visiting after Solace but haven't had my pretty picture taken yet for my 2003 card. They told me to just bring the voucher with me and explain what is going on and that I talked with season pass PR person and they will give you a "one day courtesy pass".

4) If you haven't already purchased a new pass, plan on buying on from the park you want to go to first to avoid all hassle.

I am visiting SFMM and SFOG before my park opens so I was in trouble. Just make sure to call the park and OK it with them before you just show up and demand to get in.
