six flags over georgiaIf you’re looking for ways to save at Six Flags Over Georgia & White Water during the 2017 season, you’re in luck. Now’s one of the best times to get your season pass on the cheap. Bonus: Your 2017 Six Flags Over Georgia season pass will get you in to Holiday in the Park, happening through January 4, 2017.

During Holiday in the Park, you can see Six Flags Over Georgia twinkle with millions of light, take a winter ride on a giant coaster sleigh or glowing carousel, roast your own s’mores, snap a photo in Santa’s North Pole workshop, & more.

If you have little ones, you’ll want to visit the revamped Bugs Bunny Boomtown at Six Flags Over Georgia, which now includes the first-ever DC Super Friends kids area & offers five new pint-sized experiences themed after popular Super Heroes and villains.

Want to go on the cheap? You’ve got options:

The deals:

  • Through November 28, 2016, you can take advantage of the Black Friday/CyberMonday sale & get a good deal on passes. With the deal, your season pass is $56.99 each when you buy four or more passes, and it includes a free upgrade to a Gold Combo Pass, which includes unlimited admission & parking to both Six Flags Over Georgia & White Water, plus a bonus Holiday in the Park friend ticket, extra Bring-A-Friend Free ticket days, & more. You’ll need to buy your passes during the Black Friday/CyberMonday sale and activate them at the park by December 31, 2016, to get the perks.
  • Season Dining passes are on sale, too. We opted for the Combo Premium Dining Pass, which is valid at Six Flags Over Georgia and White Water, includes a free sports bottle good for free refills all season long, & more, plus it’s valid through December 2017. We purchased this last season, and it made life so much easier (and cheaper!). When the girls went to the park with their friends, we didn’t have to worry about sending them with any money; their food & drinks were covered, and it more than paid for itself.
  • And if you do have a season pass, don’t forget to take advantage of the perks, like Bring-A-Friend Free days, discount tickets for friends, & more. Even better: The coupons are now available online or via an app, letting you skip keeping track of a coupon book. And the 2016 discount deals are good for Holiday in the Park, too.
  • Just want to go for the day? If you have a 2017 Entertainment book or a current membership, you can log in & purchase discount tickets to Six Flags Over Georgia. I just checked (November 25), and Entertainment’s discount is better than the advance day ticket offers from Six Flags Over Georgia. Bonus: Through November 27, 2016, you can use coupon code “WOW40” to save 40% on a 2017 Entertainment book & get free shipping. Once you buy the book, you’ll gain access to bonus offers online, giving you a chance to start saving immediately.
  • If you buy your ticket online at least one day in advance, you’ll save up to $20 per ticket to Six Flags Over Georgia.
  • And when it reopens in 2017, if you buy your ticket online in advance, you’ll get discount tickets to White Water.

FYI: Need an extra reason to head back in 2017? Six Flags Over Georgia has a new ride coming next season: Justice League: Battle for Metropolis. On the 4D interactive ride, you’ll be armed with a stun blaster and real-time gaming elements while traveling on a rotating vehicle through Metropolis.

stone mountain christmasThrough through January 4, 2017, you can experience Stone Mountain Christmas at Stone Mountain Park.

Stone Mountain Christmas gets you in the holiday spirit with two million+ lights, festive music, visits with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, live performances of A Christmas Carol & The Littlest Christmas Tree, rides on the Singalong Christmas Train, screenings of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4-D, pictures with the Snow Angel & her toy soldiers at Snow Angel Palace, visits with Santa Claus, a Crossroads Christmas Parade with a Snow Angel Snowfall and Fireworks Finale, & more.

And you can play on Snow Mountain through February 26, 2017. Though your Adventure pass or Mountain Membership gets you in to Stone Mountain Christmas, a Snow Mountain pass or Mountain Member PLUS pass is required to play at Snow Mountain. If you’re not familiar with Snow Mountain, here are the basics:

  • The 400-foot tubing hill offers two experiences–Avalanche Alley is for multiple riders while Tube Runners is designed for single riders.
  • In the Snow Zone, kids can play at Penguin Run (turrets, tunnels, & mid-sized slides), build a snowman, shoot snowballs at targets, or build an igloo.
  • Kids ages three & under can play in the Little Angels section.

Want to head out on the cheap? Take advantage of one of these deals:

A note about parking: If you walk or ride a bike to Stone Mountain Park, there’s no parking fee. Otherwise, it’s $15. If you must drive & aren’t opting to buy a Mountain Member or Mountain Member PLUS pass, spring for the $40 annual permit if you plan to visit multiple times to take advantage of free special events or the park’s free outdoor activities and laser show.

Stone Mountain Park is located at 1000 Robert E. Lee Dr., Stone Mountain. Technically, the main entrance is located at U.S. Highway 78 East, Exit 8, Stone Mountain, but online mapping programs often don’t like the address.

I want to see this exhibition: Through January 8, 2017, “On You: Wearing Technology” will be on view. Per the description, “Wearable technology and head-mounted displays are in the press daily. Why now? While the basic technology has existed for decades, only recently have these devices become practical and desirable. On You: Wearing Technology looks at the challenges along the road to making a consumer wearable computer: power and heat, networking, mobile input, and display through examples of consumer, professional, and ‘maker’ devices. The exhibition also includes personal stories of individuals who use or create wearable technology. Are you wearing technology? Is technology on you?”

And through January 8, 2017, “Beautiful Users: Designing for People” will be on view. Per the description, “Beautiful Users: Designing for People, organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, features nearly 100 objects that illustrate the evolution of ‘user-centered design’—from the mid–20th-century work of Henry Dreyfuss (who coined the phrase ‘designing for people’) to the complex systems and services that today’s designers are developing.” The exhibition features examples of the human-scale measurement system; objects designed for comfort and function, ranging from Dreyfuss’s Princess telephone to Amos Winter’s Leveraged Freedom wheelchair); Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s Roomba Cam, which repurposes the household gadget for surveillance purposes; & more.

Want to check it out on the cheap? Take advantage of one of these deals:

  • If you have an Entertainment book or a digital membership, you can log in & print a coupon that’ll let you buy one ticket & get one free to Museum of Design Atlanta. Bonus: Through November 15, 2016, you can use coupon code “10OFF” to save $10 on a 2017 Entertainment book & get free shipping.
