Honestly, your best bet is probably just checking in on the official website. They seem to run ticket deals quite frequently.
Well it all really depends on WHICH Six Flags park you plan to attend...
The nearest Six Flags park to me is Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA...apprently the flagship park of the franshise....
With that in mind....here's what I recommend as a frequent visitor of the park...
Right now, you can get a pretty good discount if you go to a Burger King and snatch some of their coupons...regular admission to this particular Six Flags park is about $54.99 but with the coupon you only pay $27.99...
If you plan to take a friend and want to save, you can wait untill the summer months and take a coke can with you to the park...they offer a buy-one-ticket-get-the-other-free with the show of a coke can at the gate...
If you plan to visit several Six Flags parks this year and don't mind spending a bit you can dish out the extra cash and buy a season pass (This is the route I opted for recently). Right now, this particular Six Flags park is offereing its season pass for the price of a one day admission ($54.99) and its valid at all Six flags parks. Another bonus, this pass comes along with a value book chalk full of coupons for the park and four free admission tickets for friends...
If you happen to be a college student or in the military, you can always ask around for a discount as well. I currently attend a university and I know that our student information desk offers park admissions at a discounted price. For Six Flags, we only have to pay $26.99 for a one day admission....
Hope this helps somewhat, and have a happy visit!
Also, there is a slight (very slight) chance I might hit SFOG when we pass through Georgia on the way back from Orlando. The season pass is good at all SF parks.
Again, sometimes an offer is too good to pass up, even if the product is lacking... =)
For Six Flags America, the best savings I've seen this year is AAA's website. Big props to them for keepin prices low. $21.99 tickets, $2.35 tax (per ticket), Free Print-n-Go (print from home), No Service Fee = ***$24.34*** per ticket!
Remember that MANY sites will hit you with a fee to print or mail, will have service fees, and may be misleading (always look). These are GREAT because you don't need to order them WAY in advance, just the day that you go.
And yes, Six Flags has gotten better about ticket prices. If you're not an AAA member, check around. They're always trying to get a promotion to get you in the park... in hopes you'll buy the $13.99 souvenir soda bottle, of course. Enjoy!
