Earlier this year, Six Flags began testing an All-Season version of their quick queue system, The Flash Pass, at Six Flags Magic Mountain! So far, it appears the results of the season-long version of this quick queue system have been favorable so far. As a result, Six Flags began rolling out this program at other Six Flags parks. It appears that this program will continue to expand the All Season “The Flash Pass” program at other Six Flags parks in the coming years so long as the popularity of the program remains positive. According to Six Flags VP of Corporate Communication, Sandra Daniels, “Six Flags has been testing an All-Season THE FLASH Pass, which is our virtual queuing system. The concept has been well received by our pass holders and we have rolled it out to seven of our parks; Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags Great America, Six Flags Over Georgia, Six Flags New England, Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The pass holder has the opportunity to upgrade to a Platinum THE FLASH Pass with each visit to the park. We will have this as part of our 2017 suite of All-Season products at most parks next season.”
All Season The Flash Pass – Moving Forward
Looking ahead, all signs point to addition parks being added into the fold with the potential for new features as well. Currently, however, the all-season version of The Flash Pass is offered at the Gold Level (the middle tier offered at Six Flags parks). The price of the season-long option varies from park to park, but expect it to cost about six to eight times as much as a single-day Gold Flash Pass. While discounts are offered for those bringing friends who will also be using The Flash Pass on that day, there are no immediate plans for an All-Six Flags option wherein a guest could purchase The Flash Pass to cover any visit to any Six Flags property during a calendar year. Furthermore, an All-Season Flash Pass holder does not currently get discounted rates for a single-day Flash Pass at a different park. Also, there are no current plans to offer all three levels of The Flash Pass on a season-long plan. Certainly, Six Flags’ In-Park Services Team will continue to monitor the program and look into additional options in the future. Still, it appears that hardcore enthusiasts living nearby their favorite Six Flags park continue to consider this new option.
