Isn't 78$ per pass like standard pricing? So they just throw a bunch of shit in and call it 70% off? :rofl:

Maybe I'm mis-reading, but that looks like a season pass, not day pass.

So its basically a 'full price' day pass cost, but gets you a full season pass?

*Edit*

Yea; a DAY pass is normally $71.99 full price. (but normally have some level of sale with coke cans or whatever, so its around $40 unless you are catastrophically stupid).

They are selling SEASON passes for $75.99, which is pretty good if you live in a northern burb. I've always lived too far away to make use of that.

Yeah, that's about what you can get a season pass for normally (if you buy 4+, I think it's like $85 if you buy 1-3) with coupons and shit but this is a decent deal because it includes the parking.

All the details are here: https://www.sixflags.com/greatamerica/store/season-passes

You can get them from Jewel for like $80. (but again, no parking passes)

For example, Jewel-Osco grocery stores sell Six Flags admission tickets for the following prices (including tax), valid at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL (Chicago): One-day ticket: $48.40 (compared to $67.99 + tax at main gate) Season pass: $84.45 (compared to $96.99 + tax at main gate)

I'd be all over this if I still lived home. With all the extras they're including, its worth it.

This is the first year in a long time I haven't gotten the Season Pass. As of the last few years, they threw in free parking with the pass as well. Usually when we went, we would bring a few people who bought their tickets (and didn't want to buy a season pass), and we would use their tickets to "upgrade" them to a season pass for a discounted price. I think the last time we bought passes, we paid something like $45/pass/person and got free parking attached to each pass. The year before that, parking was attached to one pass holder.

Got one at the end of last year. My kids have got my money's worth already. Went to Six Flags STL a few weeks ago. Nice place but nothing like the one in Gurnee.

The only other Six Flags that I think competed with Gurnee was the Six Flags over Houston (but this was when I was like 12 years old). Not sure what kind of rides they have over there now compared to Gurnee.

When my family and I would get the season pass, we would at least go twice to make it worth it. Once during the summer and once during fright fest.

I picked up a season pass this weekend. Called some of my friends but none of them bit.

So if we go, they will still be paying for a ticket unless its one of those days I have a guest pass.


So, maybe we need a TCG Six Flags day on the days we can bring guests. :) Get enough of a crew together and they can share the costs for other people who have to buy a ticket.

I went to St Louis when I had mine. Ended up getting kicked out because the girls we were with flashed the camera on a ride. It was towards the end of the night anyways so we didn't care.

i go to the stlouis one a couple of times per year. always buy the season pass in like oct-nov. for the following year. ends up being a few dollars more than a daily pass. have never been to the chicago park, but a few friends have and they said it sucks, purely because it is to busy.

My company just did their coworker appreciation day last weekend when it was beautiful. Season passes that day were $30 and if you bought 4, you got a free parking pass. Bought my cousins one, my daughter and myself. Kept the parking for me.

I only go on weekdays. Way less busy and way more enjoyable.

Haven't been to a Six Flags since 2009. I don't think my body likes roller coasters anymore.

they went on a weekday also. (we work every weekend)

they may have just been comparing it to stlouis though. when we go on a weekday at stlouis there is virtually no wait on any ride, and if so, it's less than 15 minutes.
