six flags over georgiaIf you’re looking for ways to save at Six Flags Over Georgia & White Water, you’re in luck. Now’s one of the best times to get in on the cheap.

It’s Fright Fest time at Six Flags Over Georgia, which is always a fun night out. Though the haunted mazes cost extra, my girls get adequate frights from the wandering monsters & basically spend their evening running from one “safe” ride line to another to stay out of reach of whatever zombie or clown or scarecrow happens to be nearby. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Rage of the Gargoyles Virtual Reality Coaster at Dare Devil Dive–guests must be age 13+ to experience the virtual reality version of the ride.

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, which offers five new pint-sized experiences themed after popular Super Heroes and villains.

If we can sneak it in this weekend, the kids & I have plans to compete on Wahoo Racer, the new six-tube, aerodynamic, water toboggan racing slide complex at White Water. The park closes for the season on October 2, 2016, so now’s the time if you want to go.

Our 2016 Six Flags Over Georgia & White Water combo passes are still valid, but if don’t already have a pass or want to renew while the prices are low, your 2017 pass will get you in for the rest of 2016, too.

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

The deals:

  • For a limited time, you can take advantage of the Fright Fest Sale & get a good deal on passes.¬†With the deal, your season pass is $53.99 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 Fright Fest Sale and activate them at the park by October 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 Fright Fest & 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 (September 30), and Entertainment’s discount is better than the advance day ticket offers from Six Flags Over Georgia. Bonus: Through October 5, 2016, you can use coupon code “SAVE10” to save 10% on an 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 if you buy your ticket online in advance, you’ll save up to $5 on 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.
