Six Flags Announces New Annual Pass Program

Six Flags announced that they’re introducing a new, three tier, annual pass program. The new pass plan simplifies the pretty convoluted mix of passes and memberships that existed before. It also increases the cost of Six Flags passes quite a bit over the super low price we’re used to. But, they’re not out of line with other parks passes.

Also, the new annual passes last from the date you purchase for 12 months, instead of just until he end of the year. That makes them similar to Disney style “annual passes”, and makes sense for all the parks that are open year-round.

The annual passes are slightly different for each Six Flags park, but roughly the same benefits (sometimes different pricing). As an example, here are the pass levels, prices, and benefits for Six Flags Discovery Kingdom:

  • Annual Thrill Seeker Pass;
    • $115.00 or 12 payments starting at $9.62;
    • Includes access to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom & Hurricane Harbor Concord,
      plus general parking and special savings;
  • Annual Extreme Pass;
    • $175.00 or 12 payments starting at $14.62;
    • Includes access to all Six Flags Outdoor Parks including Six Flags Magic
      Mountain in Southern California, plus general parking, two Junior Passes and
      special savings;
  • Annual Ultimate Pass;
    • $350.00 or 12 payments starting at $29.24;
    • Includes access to all Six Flags Outdoor Parks including Six Flags Magic
      Mountain in Southern California, plus preferred parking, two Junior Passes, a
      ten-meal dining plan, and special savings.

Note the Thrill Seeker Passes sometimes have a handful of blackout dates (not like, Disney level, but a couple). Also the passes all include a skip the line pass or a few, plus other perks.┬áThe parks are also offering a “summer pass” at least this year that lasts through Labor Day for a lower price than these.

We recommend you check out your local Six Flags park page to see the full benefit comparison and pricing for your local park. It’s a little unfortunate that the basic level doesn’t include access to all Six Flags Parks, but at the same time Cedar Fair only gives access to all parks with the Platinum Pass. What do you think? Still planning to get your Six Flags pass? Which level would you get?
