$250 for a one-day Six Flags ticket? Yes, if you go VIP

But Six Flags now is trying to out-do them all. The amusement park chain has announced a VIP ticket program that includes a slew of amentities for guests with extra cash to spend.
The cost? $249 per person, plus tax, at Magic Mountain, Great Adventure, Great America and Discovery Kingdom. $199 per person everywhere else.
The upshot of all this is that, for a thousand bucks, a family of four gets to do exactly what everyone in the family wants to do, without waiting for any of it.
I've been pricing a summer vacation up to the Bay Area this year, and after looking at $200-$300 nightly hotel rates in the tourist areas, a $250 theme park ticket no longer seems bizarre to me. Especially with all that's included here. (I can envision plenty of parents tempted by the thought of buying their elementary-aged son some one-on-one time with Batman and Superman, too.)
