2013 Parking


Flash Pass

Flash Pass

The Flash Pass is an electronic device from the British company Lo-Q plc, available at an additional cost, that lets you virtually wait in line while enjoying other park attractions. Purchased either at the Flash Pass reservation window at the park or online, the Flash Pass allows virtual queing, meaning users can ride other rides, enjoy a snack, or see a show instead of physically waiting in a line. Essentially, the Flash Pass allows park guests to multitask.

There is a limited number of Flash Passes available each day so if you plan on using it, it's recommended that you purchase it when you first arrive at the park.

* Gold and Platinum Flash Passes also reduce the wait time, in addition to allowing virtual queuing.

 

How the Flash Pass Works

Users of the Flash Pass determine which ride they want to virtually queue for and select it from the Flash Pass. The Flash Pass will then display a timeframe, based on the length of the line, that the users can return to the ride and skip the line. Users can only wait in one virtual line at a time, but multiple rides can be scheduled back-to-back and each wait time begins when the previous one ends.

When riders return during their timeframe, they can skip the line and board the ride (although typically Flash Pass users still wait in a much smaller line within the ride's station beyond the normal line). The Flash Pass has a small grace period where rider's can ride slightly before and after the scheduled timeframe. If users fail to "check-in" to the ride with their Flash Pass beyond the scheduled time and grace period, the reservation is automatically cancelled. Users can also manually cancel rides on the Flash Pass device themselves.

The Flash Pass will automatically compensate wait times to account for ride closures due to inclement weather or mechanical issues and will display a message stating the updated ride time.

 

Flash Pass Types

Regular Flash Pass

Regular Flash Passes let you wait the full length of the actual queue line, just outside of the line.

Gold Flash Pass

While the regular Flash Pass lets you virtually wait the full length of the line, the Gold Flash Pass also cuts the wait time significantly — around 75%.

Platinum Flash Pass

Introduced in 2010, the Platinum Flash Pass not only reduces the wait time by 90%, but also has a "wait once, ride twice" feature.

 

Is the Flash Pass Worth It?

So should you buy a Flash Pass on your next visit to Six Flags? The answer is, as usual, it depends. Obviously if the park is empty and wait times are non-existent, a Flash Pass is not going to provide any benefits. It's this reason that we recommend waiting until arriving at the park and getting a feel of the crowds before buying a Flash Pass, even though they can be pre-purchased online. Our one exception would be if you're certain the park will be busy during your trip; for example, during a concept or holiday.

In terms of being worth it, some scenarios must be considered. Although the price can seem steep to park locals who may own season passes, it can be an attractive option to out-of-towners who want to do as much as possible in their short trip, especially a trip that may have been constrained into occurring on a busy day.

The average cost-per-user is about $30 for a Regular, $50 for a Gold, and $75 for a Platinum Flash Pass. If you've decided to use a Flash Pass the real question is then, is it worth it to pay an additional $20 per user to reduce wait times by 75%? Or Pay an additional $45 a person to reduce the times by 90% and get to ride twice? It all depends on your situation and your riding preferences.

Our take: only get the Flash Pass if you've seen the long lines or are fairly confident that the park will be crowded. And if you're going to spend the money on a Flash Pass, why not spend a little more and get a Gold or Platinum version so that your wait time is drastically reduced? The regular Flash Pass only has the benefit of getting to wait the full length of the line while doing other activities.
