Six Flags [FUN] Corporate Discussion Thread

p. 91: Six Flags and Cedar Fair to enter "merger of equals" agreement, company will still be called "Six Flags"

Recommended Posts

I'm confused. Has anyone has looked at their grocery bill, lately? Ours doubled over the past few years. We can't go out to eat and have a couple drinks anywhere decent under $100.  Why would anyone be surprised Six Flags prices have skyrocketed along with the rest of daily essentials?

as noted, I have no issue with the prices.

I DO have an issue with the surcharge added to every purchase.

raise the prices if you need to, but don't insult me with that .99 surcharge bullshit.

I think people are more surprised that Six Flags has the most expensive food in the industry now.

Bingo.  Just to compare the SoCal market...

Disneyland 1yr max visits + parking/discounts: $1,649

Universal Studios 1yr max visits + parking/discounts: $629

Knott's Berry Farm 1yr max visits + parking/discounts: $375

Six Flags Magic Mountain 1yr max visits + parking/discounts: $99


There's no way the gate of a flagship park of a proud brand should be sold that cheaply.  I'm sure people would be just fine paying a bit more if it meant dick moves like the surcharge aren't considered necessary.  They may even be able to maintain their park and start paying people a decent wage too while they're at it.

Nope!!! I'm calling BS on your grocery bill doubled..................I live in the same area as you. Our bill has gone up some, yes, but no where near double and I haven't changed my shopping habits a bit or the number of people I'm shopping for and we tend to buy the more expensive, healthier options in the store. If you want to engage in hyberpole you have to be more selective, if you do it all the time everyone thinks you are being serious. As far as going out to eat for under a $100 that depends on what you consider decent which is HIGHLY subjective. Besides the point here was not the amount of the surcharge it was why are they being dicks and pointing it out as a separate charge instead of just quietly raising the price of everything by maybe 50 cents, but you know that so why the need to interject a complaint about something outside of the parks.

Now back to the real discussion.

it's now a moot point for me anyways. .as I took advantage of the Cyber sale and did 2-meal-per-visit dining plan (as they note - in bright red on the site -- that dining is good at all parks your pass is good at.  and since I splurged for the Diamond pass?  that 2 meals per visit is good at all six flags parks).

 

so since I'll have meal plan now?  no surcharge for me.

which is what I expect they were trying to drive people to anyways.   

i still think it's tacky and horrible. . . but a non-issue for me now.

Heads up, the new dining plans include a snack currently when visiting Over Georgia.  Only park I'm aware of that gives you a snack credit for the day with the new plans.  I thought it would have been quickly updated but still going since August when they were released.

I'm not seeing that on the website.
 

Not advertised. But it's there and will appear on mobile ordering for verification. I was sort of surprised it didn't appear at other parks. 

I am not talking about membership dining plans. This is for 2024 diamomd season passes and dining plans purchased since August.  Not a huge deal but I thought it was interesting.

I see.

I was looking at the purchase page for the Black Friday deals. It just say:
"Enjoy lunch and dinner every visit today and throughout the 2024 Season. Only a 3 hour interval between meals. Drinks not included."

Nothing about a snack ;)
