This past year I stayed away from all the Amusement Parks in the LA area because there were so many other things to experience and enjoy.
However, 2012, I made a resolution to try out a few. I began to research the cost of annual passes and this is what I found out:
Knott’s Berry Farm:
Daily Admission: 46.99
Kids ages 3-11: 24.99
Seniors: 62+: 24.99
Platinum: 165 dollars (includes Parking)
Gold: 89.99 (includes Soak City)
Season Pass: 64.99
The winner for me was the Gold Season Pass. Between Soak City and Knott’s Berry Farm, that’s enough to keep me happy. And since Knott’s is the Original Amusement Park, I must check it out!
Daily Admission: 77.99
Under 48″: 69.99
Premium: 144.99 (includes Parking)
No Black Out Pass: 104.99
Buy a Day at 77.99, get 2012 FREE is still happening!
The winner for me was the Buy a Day at 77.99, get the rest of 2012 FREE!
Six Flags Magic Mountain
Daily Admission: 61.99
Buying Online: 36.99
Child under 48″: 36.99
2 and Under: Free
Thrill Pass: 61.99 (Same as Daily Admission!)
Combo Pass: (Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor) 89.99
Xtreme Pass: 125.00 (Free Parking and No Black Out Dates)
The winner for me is the COMBO pass. 2 parks for that price, I’ll take it. Individual Parking each visit is 15 dollars! *as a heads up*
Daily Admission: (1o+) 80.00
Ages 3 to 9: 74.00
1 Day Park Hopper: 3 to 9: 99.00 (10+) 105.00
They also have 2 to 5 day Admission and Park Hopper Tickets Available!
Premium Passport: 499.00 (Free Parking, No Black Out Dates)
Deluxe Annual Passport: 379.00 (315 days of use)
Southern California Annual Pass: 269.00 (215 days of use)
Southern California Select Annual Pass: 199.00 (170 days of use)
If you’re in California, you also have the option of doing a monthly payment with any of the passes purchased. A down payment of 80.00 is required!
The winner for me was the Select Annual Pass. 170 days is enough for me! I know I wouldn’t be going ALL the time, but more than 2 times, the cost of two admission tickets, so it’s completely worth it to me!
This is the information I found as I was doing my research on Annual Passes towards the Amusement Parks close to the LA area. Now I just have to decide which ones are worth the investment!
