Price cuts across the chain at Six Flags
A slew of press releases have crossed the transom detailing $10 admission cuts at nearly all Six Flags amusement parks.
Six Flags also offers additional discounts on its website for several parks.
Obviously, high gas prices play a role in this move, as families across the U.S. look for places to cut costs to make ends meet. But, as I wrote earlier, as some families decide that they cannot afford a day at the regional Six Flags park, others might opt for that same park in lieu of a longer visit to Orlando for the parks there. Markets shift before they do away.
Will the Six Flags price cuts make you consider a trip to one of their parks that you would not have otherwise? Tell us in the comments.
A $10 cut in price doesn't matter much to me in particular. If I want to go, I'll go. Fortunately, I'm not feeling the pinch quite as much as some others. However, a family of 4 with a little less money in their pocket because of gas/cost of living/etc, wouldn't mind saving $40 bucks on admission. Obviously it's a step to boost attendance and to raise spending inside the park. Hopefully it works, and doesn't strain the company too much in the process. If the product is good, the people will come anyway.
I agree with Derek...the $10 is not a huge factor. If I want to go, I go (as long as my wife says "okay").
Nah, I already have Season Passes (a good deal anyway). I really do not think it will effect attendence because its already very cheap. The only fear I see is that the quality will go down in the parks. Also, how are they going to pay the workers? Are they going to take a cut in pay? I think its a bad idea and $10 will do nothing due to all the other promotions they have (like coke cans, etc)
Yeah same here. I already have a season pass. For $44.95 I felt it was a steal since I am considered out of market. I plan on going to SFStL at least one more time this year and SFFT so I feel it paid for itself.

Hmmmm... No..My last trip to a SF park was a mess...And with all thats being done to save operation costs...Ride closures, food service areas Closed..Little if any entertainment..besides rides...No thanks...
Well, it looks like everybody gotta come to SFGA in Illinois! Its no Disney World, but its pretty nice (according to all the other slaming of the SF pars). SFGA is great in my opinion. However, they have always offered some kind of deal to get tickets
I bought my season pass last year during Fright Fest for $44.95 it was a steal. Sadly, this year they dropped several of the pass benefits. (i.e. discounts to food and souvenirs, no local discounts or coupons, etc.) But, it still paid for itself with the 3 visits I did last year and the 2 I have already done this year.
SURE I WILL! CHEAPER COSTS MEAN LESS OUT OF MY POCKET RIGHT. I WOULD DEFINITELY GO. THE CLOSEST PARK IS MAGIC MOUNTAIN, MY FAVORITE AS TO THE DISNEY PARKS, IT MAKE'S IT MORE PLEASANT KNOWING THEY ARE THINKING LIKE THIS.
I'm excited about the deal, although it almost works out to the same. For instance, 4 tickets at $24.99 each equals to $99.96. But at the buy one, get one free price, they still cost $49 or $39 each, multiplied by 2 is $99.98. When I went to purchase 2 tickets of the buy one, get one free, they were charging $49 for the tickets. So it really isn't a savings. We're planning to go regardless of the price anyway, but I guess it's the thought that counts.
Iam not bashing it them...Just dont go out of my way to get to one...Having worked for the company myself..Ive watched them take and turn a park into a concrete and steel jungle..Now dont get me wrong I enjoy coasters as much as the next man..But When you take and cram them into 230 acres of your 1500 acre land ..somethings wrong..Some day I with Roberts permisssion will submit a story about this...
