Huge discount on Six Flags season passes.

Six Flags Over Texas: We saved 40% on our 2010 season passes. Learn how.

I took my kids to SFOT today (squeezing a few more trips out of our 2009 season passes). I asked about renewing our season passes and we were told that we could pay $34.99 and renew today.

It's a loop hole. They assumed we paid for regular admission ($30 and up) and wanted to upgrade that by paying $35 more for the season pass. Nobody checked if we walked in on the 2009 season pass. They just took the $35 and let us buy the season pass for the next year.

I don't think they put much thought into anything other than hiring a 16-year-old to push the button on the cash registers.

Good for us! 40% savings on the season passes!

Gratz! I guess your experience shows yet another reason why Six Flags is in the middle of bankruptcy proceedings right now!

So, how about a trip report for your day at the park? =)

I think that was a mistake since they should have checked. At Great America, you need to show how you got into the park.

As for renewal, I am suprised they do not give a deal to returning season pass holders. Later on, It was about $65 and I got a $10 Amazon giftcard. I am happy with that.

The deal going on to "renew" at SFGA (which is only a seasonal park mind you) is that you got into Fright Fest for the rest of the season for free (or included) all for $65. If you had a Season Pass, it was a moot point.

But yes, Rao, they need to charge more to go to the park.
