Yeah, that's actually a really shitty obnoxious attitude to have. Not only would I not want you representing our site but I don't want people like you on our forums. So you can just sit there on the sidelines and watch the rest of us post about the fun we're having in the park while you sit there and be a self-entitled rude jerk.

Bu-Bye....

The irony of this is that had to responded "Oh, man, I'd love to do the media event and get to ride before the opening date" you would have actually gotten to do something super fun and cool that ALL those other passholders and members would have wanted to do. Personally, I feel that if you're looking for "bragging rights" (as dumb as that actually is IMO) saying you got to do a media event is by far higher on the list than "riding it first" through a passholder preview.

But to each his own... you just sit there and continue to be angry....

Everyone knows that a Six Flags membership is less than $6 a month, right? :lol:

^It’s a bit more expensive now if you don’t have friends to buy it with, but still pretty cheap

I don’t get why people would be mad about pass-holders getting less benefits than members. Memberships are more expensive so you get what you pay for. Gold season passes are like $55 during the flash sale!

If you pay more, you get more service. That's how it is anywhere. Not just theme parks.

Some people feel very "entitled" over their season passes. I went to KD when Twisted Timbers opened and this woman was upset they were not running two trains during the passholder preview. She said "WE'RE PASSHOLDERS SURELY THEY KNOW THAT!" They also know that not running two trains on Twisted Timbers for one day while they were working their kinks out will likely have no effect on the $100 you probably already paid so....

They added an extra touch of theming to Firebird today! Love what they did around the fire effect.

As far as the firebird media event, I wish I knew somebody who could do it, but all the enthusiasts I know (myself included) are minors
