Six Flags Theme Parks
Vacation Planning Guide

Six Flags theme parks are located in ten different states across America with 25 theme parks, water parks and amusement parks among their holdings.

They are the largest regional theme park company in the world and entertain millions of guests each year.

The familiar chain of properties derived its trademark name from the six different flags that have flown over Texas soil, which is home to the original park.

Six Flags parks are known for their award-winning thrill coasters as well as the dozens of other rides, attractions and world-class shows. Check out a few of the coasters below...

Each park also includes themed children’s areas with kid-sized rides and attractions and most parks offer meet and greets with famous Justice League superheroes and LOONEY TUNES favorites.

Planning an economic Six Flags vacation starts at home at the computer. Here are a few tips that will help you save some wear and tear on your travel budget.

• First and foremost, subscribe to the Team Six newsletter at the website. It’s free, simple and just for your trouble, you’ll receive exclusive discounts and special offers to use when you buy tickets and merchandise online. No brainer…

• Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz and other major travel agencies often offer travel packages that include park tickets. Although it takes a little “Googling”, you can also find a few smaller online travel agencies that specialize in discounted SF vacations. Be sure to search with a specific SF location, like Six Flags St. Louis, to receive the best local results.

• Visit all the major airlines and sign up for their weekly email specials. Southwest Airlines usually has great deals on airfare and has an excellent all-in-one online vacation planner with deals on air, rental cars, accommodations (even 5 bedroom rental homes), and park tickets - from their website.

These are good places to start, especially to get an idea of how much money you’re going to need. With that in mind, let’s take a look at just a few of the things that you’ll need to budget for:

• Travel expenses – plane, train or automobile (gas for your own car or cost of a rental)
• Length of stay
• Accommodations – Resort and area hotels, condos, rental homes
• Food – more choices than I can list…
• Souvenirs
• Special rides – some attractions require additional cost
• Park tickets – several options to choose from depending on your length of stay, separate admission for water parks, etc.
