Why are SFoG season passes the cheapest?

Monday, February 4, 2002 4:45 PM
I noticed that SFoG season passes are only $49.99 and a single day ticket is $39.99.  Why is SFoG's lower when SFoG is considered one of the best SF parks in the country.  I'm not complaining by any means.  I'm just curious why SFoG is so much cheaper than the rest of the other parks.

Possible to attract Georgians? Maybe they have many one timers but not many visitors that visit multiple times? i do not know why this would be the case since SFOG seems like a excellent park. Another possiblity is that SFOG is pretty distant from many other SF parks, what is the closest SFA?, which I believe is 8 hours away. Anyways, enjoy the great deal that SF is presenting to you, up here in boston i know i am enjoying the deal too, SFNE is the same price $50. What a great bargain!! And I just lik eto state that the Pats are World Champs, the team of Destiny!! Cannot wait for the celebration tomorrow!!

There was a point last year when you could buy a Six Flags season pass at Kroger for $39.99.  Crazy.

Doubtful. If you get in "free" you've somehow earned it. Possibly (probably) by working for the park for the season, or maybe through the company you work for, in either case you pay by working, which technically makes it not free.

Weird, where I work, they actually pay ME to do stuff!  ;)

Have you ever considered that maybe it's not you that's the problem, but THE PARK? ;)

I've wondered about the season pass pricing differences too.  Here in Texas, SFFT is significantly less than SFOT or SFAW.  But I suppose SFFT has SeaWorld to deal with, while SFOT and SFAW have no such competition.  Apparently Six Flags believes SFFT has a lot of growth potential as they continue to add new rides just about every year.

Its all about maxamizing profits.  Lets think of it this way:
Remember back in middle school math, you were presented with a problem concerning your phone plan.  With Plan A, you were charge $X per minute.  With Plan B, you were charged $Y at the beginning no matter what, and then you were charged $N per minute, N being somewhat less than X.  The teacher then made you graph the two plans, and made you analyze them.  You found out that if you only talked for a certain amount of time, lets say, 60 minutes a month, you should go with plan A, but if you talked for over that, you should go with Plan B. 
Its kinda the same process for Six Flags when it comes to maximizing profits but they are the ones that get to set the equations.  They can look at years and years of previous data and predict what the graphs are going to look like.  On one hand, if they make season pass prices really, really high, only a few people will buy them, but they will make more money per person.  If they make pass prices really, really low, lots of people will buy them, but Six Flags won't make as much dough per person, so they then try to find a happy medium where lots of people buy passes, and they make a lot of money with each one.  The price fluctuates from park to park because all parks have a different data to work with because of different demographics surrounding each park. 
Any questions?

Last time I checked, getting into a park for free by working there is still considered free, since they pay you for working.  The free admission is well..a perk.
