Default Six Flags Annual Pass with unlimited meal plan

We discovered last week they had a promotion in New England where one $99 payment offers free remainder of 2018 AND 2019 unlimited six Flags Amusement Park entry plus one lunch and dinner every visit, plus unlimited water bottles plus it has a wave pool and water slides. Definitely good for keeping kids having fun at $0.00 after the $99 for 2 whole years.

This made me realize this could be an option for early retirement for some. You could eat and ride roller coasters every day June thru September and then every weekend and sleep in a tent just outside the venue. In essence you could then live on an incremental budget of $0.00 theoretically and have all your daily needs satisfied.


Also an option for many needy individuals, though the food is ....a ok but still

It’s fascinating to me one could be broke poor and with this pass not even feel set back by it because of this unlimited pass thing

I thought this was going to be a guide in how to get lunch+dinner daily for 4 months for just 99$ total. Maybe go to the park everyday at 2:59 and get 'lunch' (say lunch ends at 3p, then dinner starts), then grab dinner to go 5 min later.

ive been to 6flags during peak times. I would rather stand on eggs with my hands in the toaster all day.

Is that a humble brag?

Well, I never been to six flags, but I have been to Marine land, sea world, Disneyland and I hate all of them. I am glad that my kids are little older now.
