    Six Flags Magic Mountain - VIP Ticket $249

    Six Flags Magic Mountain is offering a VIP ticket for $249 per person per day. According to the Daily News article (http://www.dailynews.com/santaclarita/ci_5439179) on March 15, the perks include premium parking, meals, no waiting in line, and private meetings and photos with cartoon characteres.

    The article states only a few will be sold a day.

    The Six Flags website (www.sixflags.com/vip) states the following:
    Enjoy the personalized first-class service of your own private VIP experience at a Six Flags Theme Park. A professional tour guide will ensure your day is fun and memorable by attending to every detail of your visit. Your VIP Tour includes admission to the park, expedited access to all your favorite rides, reserved seating at select shows, lunch, and a private autograph session with your favorite Looney Tunes characters.

    $249 a day for SFMM.............this still won't be able to get my family to return to SFMM. They need to try a little harder than this.

    What a cheap attempt at trying to get people into their parks by offering "special treatment." I regret purchasing that "buy a day, get a year free" ticket. I only went that they that I bought the ticket. SFMM needs to think up something better than this!

    I stand by what I have said before. I live out here and I have yet to see a special for the local locals (SCV residents).

    This park is right in my backyard, yet I still don't go.

    I think they need to get rid of the buy a day, get a year free thing, as well as the bring in a Coke can from the trashcan and get a friend in free promotions. A special pass for locals would be great to get them into the park and then spread word about the park.

    I was happy with my VIP Thrill Pass from last year, but that was only about $80 or so (not including park admission). But still, unlimited flash passes and a free meal was a GREAT value to me as I wanted to ride as many of the rides as I possibly could do in one day. If this includes park admission then it would still be about the same price in the end with added features.

    I think if you were trying to make the most out of a one-day visit knowing you would not be able to go back for some time then it would be a good idea. EPSICALLY if you got unlimited front-of-the-line passes for X as you did with Tatsu with the VIP Thrill pass.

    Universal was the first to use that promotion.

    Does SFMM's VIP pass include an armed body guard to escort you through the Park???

    Now THAT would be an option some folks might take advantage of!

    Re: Six Flags Magic Mountain - VIP Ticket $249

    WHAT!!! That's just crazy.

    We actually decided last night that for the first time EVER we won't be getting SFMM passes. We only used them like 3 times last year and it really wasn't a big deal having them. So we decided to take a year off from the place.

    I've been going to the park yearly since about 1981 and have had passes every year since about 1988.

    We are instead opting to get the Knott's pass that includes the water-parks and Great America and Bonfante. Plus we just got our WDW AP's. That's enough for now.

    Re: Six Flags Magic Mountain - VIP Ticket $249

    Okay, I've given everyone a few days to react, to get the general feel before I responded.

    Let me start off by saying that in addition to the other things I do at SFMM, I was also asked to be one of the VIP Tour Guides. My first tour will be on March 22nd. The reason SF rolled out this program was becuase there is a market for private tours/ personal escort at our parks...believe it or not. Obviously these requests do not come from the average theme park goer. These requests come from people who are from out of town, who do not frequent theme parks, and would prefer to maximize there day by having someone knowledgable plan their day for them, and by not waiting in lines.

    They are advertising this, yes to the general public, but the main target is Management of large companies, and people with larger incomes who would feel more than comfortable spending this amount of money for a planned out day in the park. In a sense, a true vacation where not much thinking has to be done on the guests' part.

    It is actually not a horrible price (not great...but...) and you know...there are markets for that at most theme parks. I say they might as well give it a shot.
    But when (hijack) did SFMM become Six Flags California? When did the front sign on the park get changed?

    SF California incompasses both MM and HH.

    This is similar to DLR, incompassing DL, DCA, and DTD.
