Six Flags Family Pass - not good at Six Flags over Texas

Post by Brad Bish » Fri, 10 Jul 1998 04:00:00


I just picked up a Family Pass for Six Flags Over Georgia. It says it gets me
into all Six Flags parks minus the water parks AND Six Flags Over Texas. So my
question is why Six Flags Over Texas is excluded from the pass that gets me
into every other Six Flags park? (not that it will make any sort of difference
this year - just curious)

Thanks,

Brad

The pass was probably printed during the premier six flags thing that happened
towards the end of the season and before Premier bought out six flags.I'm
pretty sure it will work I'd probably call the park if desired and try to
straighten out the apparent misprint

The info they are giving you is out of date. Your SFOG pass will be accepted at
SFOT. When the info you have was printed, Premier was negotiating to buy SFOT, not
the whole chain. Had that happened, SFOT would no longer have been a Six Flags
park. After that deal fell through Premier bought the entire chain, and the rest
is history. The literature I received from the Six Flags MasterCard last year had
a little asterisk next to SFOT and a footnote that said we do not expect SFOT to
be part of the Six Flags chain next year.

And your pass will get you into Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom
(Louisville), too, which is not listed on the brochure.

That is good news. Why would Six Flags sell SFOT? Wasn't that the first (and flagship)
Six Flags Park? Wouldn't that be like Disney selling Disneyland to Six Flags?
I'm glad it didn't happen, but it does seem a little strange to me.

Is Kentucky Kingdom worth a visit? It should only be a day or so drive from
here (Atlanta). I was kind of considering hitting Six Flags Mid America as
well? Is that one worth it?

Thank you all for the info,

Brad

My pass to SFMM said the same thing about SFOT but I had no problem using it
there last month.  It might have been do to the earlier possibility of SFOT
being sold to Premier.

I think you mis-understood.  Way back this year,  Premier was just about to
buy SFOT.  At the last moment, SF out bidded Premier so the acquisition was
canceled.  But then, a few months later, instead of Premier just buying
SFOT, they purchased the entire chain of Six Flags.  So technically,  SFOT
is Premiers'.  Understood?  Great!

    Here we go again.. Premier was not going to buy SFOT from Six Flags.  They
were going to buy it from a group of investors that own it.  Six Flags Theme
Parks was merely operating the park, under a contract that was running out.
Premier lost out on obtaining the park, and SFTP got back the operating rights
from the investors.  The park was not theirs to sell, per se.  Still that way.
Premier does not own SFOT and SFOG outright.  There is still a group of
investors that own a large percentage.

This is true for now but Premier does have options to purchase units from
the Limited Partnerships that own the parks real estate.
