This Year's Season Passes Provide More Value and Guest Benefits Than Ever Before, Unparalleled By Any Other Theme Parks - Including Industry First, 'Dream Nite' Six Flags 2007 Season Passes Now on Sale in Park and Online
NEW YORK, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Six Flags (NYSE: SIX
), the world's largest regional theme park company, today announced the kickoff of its 2007 Season Pass "pre-season sale," marking its lowest season pass prices of the year, and offering purchasers a host of new benefits that enhance the Six Flags Season Pass as an unparalleled value in the theme park industry.
Every Six Flags Season Pass -- which pays for itself in fewer than two visits -- is valid at all 13 Six Flags-branded parks in the US, at no additional cost. By comparison, Cedar Point, another theme park company, requires its season pass holders to pay as much as $55 extra to gain access to all its theme parks. In addition, when guests purchase a Season Parking Pass, it will be valid at every Six Flags-branded park all year long.
This year, season pass purchasers will also receive a Value Book with over $300 worth of extra benefits, including:
* Five free "bring a friend" tickets;
* A free companion ticket good for admission to any other Six Flags park;
* 15% off all merchandise all season long each time guests spend more than $25 at park stores;
* Special promotions and exclusive events for passholders.
In addition, some Six Flags parks will offer extended hours exclusively for Six Flags Season Passholders. For example, next summer Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ will be hosting "RISE & SCREAM - Extreme Coaster Mornings" every Monday through Thursday June-August 2007. RISE & SCREAM gives Six Flags Season Passholders an hour of exclusive early morning ride time on a rotating selection of Six Flags Great Adventure's most popular coasters, including Kingda Ka, El Toro, Nitro, SUPERMAN-Ultimate Flight, BATMAN the Ride, Medusa and Great American Scream Machine.
Some Six Flags parks will also be offering "Coasters After Dark," when parks will stay open past their published closing times exclusively for Season Passholders, who will have the run of the park and enjoy the park's major roller coasters -- in the dark!
When Six Flags guests purchase and activate a 2007 season pass, they are automatically entered to win their Dream Nite, the party of a lifetime, when six winners per park will host their own private night at Six Flags and invite up to 100 of their friends and family to share it with them.
"Families buying their Six Flags Season Passes from now through the end of December will find the lowest prices as well as a broad spectrum of guest benefits unmatched by any other theme parks," said Mark Shapiro, Six Flags President and CEO. "We hope that the families who began to re-discover the new Six Flags in 2006 will take this opportunity to get their season passes for 2007, when the Six Flags experience at its very core will be about great guest service."
