2010 amazing six flags over texasSix Flags Over Texas: they have taken away the platinum pass
From Jessie PhillipsWow, just when you thought 6 flags couldn't go any lower, they have taken away the platinum pass (was called the gold pass) one of the main saving faces was you got a 15% discount for food and ect, now the cheap B_______ took that away too. I do hope the current owner sells it soon to someone that actually cares about the consumer

From Anthony MurphySix Flags Great America does not even have that! I guess we really missed that too!

Don't you still get discounts and a coupon book if you have a season pass?
From Adrienne McDonaldSFFTx has two. One good for all pks w/o the book & one $10 more w/the book. I'm just SOOO glad they FINALLY came to their senses & are doing something abt that retched Texas Giant. It's about time! That thing is just awful! You'da thought they wudda torn it down instead & put in something better. Let's hope their rennovations make it better! (I wanted to post that in the original article from March 04 but didn't realize I hadn't updated my email address so I missed out on posting my thoughts abt the rennovations so my apologies for jumping a little off-subject at the end there).

From Anthony MurphyStrange, I do not get the option at SFGA and I can go to all the parks.

Then again, the closest park to me outside of SFGA is in St. Louis
From Mike GallagherAnthony, SFGADv here in Jersey offers the same option Adrienne described. For $70, the Play Pass gives you visits to all SF parks. The $80 Season Pass gives the same, but with the coupon book. I've made a bit of use of the coupon bbok, but may not need it this year. I'm leaning toward the regular pass, but we'll see.

You mentioned SFGA doesn't have the option. I don't know about other SF parks.
From Anthony MurphyWHHHHHHHHHAAAATTT?

I would get it with the coupon book if I had the choice anyhow.
Why would they do that?
From Adrienne McDonaldI'm not sure, maybe you can just call & find out. Perhaps ea park offers what they plan to offer just like ea park has different prices. Our park (SFFTx) is $49 & $59 for the passes I think.

From Anthony MurphyYeah, I guess each park offers differently and now I know perhaps why SF is having some money problems: They need to charge more! For SFGA, its around $65, PERIOD and most of us consider that a steal. The only option you have is a Parking pass for an additional $65. Oh well, I already have mine and I would not have it any other way! I just thought I was getting the deal of the day! That also might explain why SFGA is doing pretty well compared to other SF parks.
