We didn’t buy 2012 season passes because our summer was packed, but I bought a four-pack of 2013 season passes a couple of weeks ago. I was waiting for the end-of-season season pass deal to get mine, and it’s an excellent buy. As usual, when you buy the 2013 pass, you can use it for park admission for the rest of the 2012 season, too, and since Six Flags Over Georgia is open weekends through October 28, 2012, you still have quite a bit of time to play this season.
But Six Flags Over Georgia changed its season pass details, and it’s some of the best pricing I’ve seen in a while, especially when you buy multiples. These are the lowest prices that’ll be offered for the 2013 season, so don’t miss out. Here are the details:
- 2013 season passes to Six Flags Over Georgia are $64.99 each when you buy 1-3 passes or $49.99 each when you buy 4-10 passes. And Six Flags Over Georgia now offers a Gold pass, which comes with free parking at every Six Flags theme park, extra Bring-a-Friend tickets, VIP entry, & more. Bonus: It’s priced at $89.99, but if you process your IDs by October 28, 2012, you’ll get a free upgrade to Gold, so you can get Gold passes for as little as $49.99 each. And when you buy online, you can take advantage of a 12-payment payment plan to spread out the cost.
- 2013 Combo passes to Six Flags Over Georgia are $74.99 each when you buy 1-3 passes or $59.99 each when you buy 4-10 passes. And Six Flags Over Georgia & White Water now offer a Gold pass, which comes with free parking at every Six Flags theme park, extra Bring-a-Friend tickets, VIP entry, & more. Bonus: It’s priced at $99.99, but if you process your IDs by October 28, 2012, you’ll get a free upgrade to Gold, so you can get Gold Combo passes for as little as $59.99 each. And when you buy online, you can take advantage of a 12-payment payment plan to spread out the cost.
- Bonus: Discover cardmembers save an extra 5% when you use your Discover card to buy tickets, parking, food, & more at Six Flags (at the park or online).
Just want to go for the day? You’ve got a few ways to play on the cheap:
- The last weekend of Military Appreciation Days at Six Flags Over Georgia will take place September 22-23, 2012. Active and reservist members of the U.S. military can present their ID for free admission for themselves & up to two dependents. Spouses of those deployed may also take advantage of the deal. Extra tickets may be purchased for 50% off, and retired military may also purchase tickets for 50% off.
- You’ll save $20 on a one-day ticket to Six Flags Over Georgia (reg. $56.99) if you order online & buy your ticket at least three days in advance. If you procrastinate, the online discount drops to $15. Kids age 2 & under are admitted free. Both one-day ticket deals are valid for admission through September 30, 2012. To get the three-day advance-purchase deal, you’ll need to buy by September 27, 2012. You should be able to get the deal without a promo code, but if it vanishes, try “SAVVYS”, which I came across in the latest Savvy Shopper.
Season passes remain your best bet if you’re planning to visit often. Not only does does a season pass pay for itself in about two visits, but it comes with a coupon book that’ll let you get friends in free or on the cheap + save on food & merchandise. And your admission includes extras like concerts & Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia.
Speaking of extras, while you’re at Six Flags Over Georgia, you can check out a free concert during the Live & Local concert series. Here’s the lineup:
- September 22: Rye
- September 29: Seventh Day
- October 20: Not Quite Devils
- October 27: Under Autumn
And mark your calendars: Fright Fest officially opens on Saturday, October 6, 2012. Bonus: On Friday, October 5, 2012, Six Flags Over Georgia will be open exclusively for pass holders.
Another reason to consider a combo pass: They’re adding two new rides for 2013:
- At Six Flags Over Georgia, SkyScreamer, an extreme swing ride, will spin guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a 24-story tower.
- At White Water, Typhoon Twister will send riders in four-passenger tubes barreling down an enclosed five-story drop before shooting out into a 67-foot bowl, where they’ll experience several revolutions against the wall of the bowl, then spin down into the corkscrew-drop chute and splash into the pool below.
