Six Flags is too cheap...literally. Season passes $66 and one day tickets $30 on the website right now, and they give out friends free tickets to season passholders. Getting into SIx Flags parks is cheaper now than it was 20 years ago. The strategy seems to be give away the gate then try to upsell the hell out people.
Also its pretty funny that they closed V2 to paint it during what is always the busiest part of the year and right before the offseason, when they could have just painted it in the spring. I wonder if they were trying to save operating money by having it closed or they had to spend that money this fiscal year before losing it.

Passes are now $60, the fact they keep dropping the price from the original $80 when 2022 passes were first released means sales are soft or they are going all in on volume even more. Every park in the chain has been dropping prices.

It's kind of peculiar as SF are rolling out the tiered passes. The purpose of memberships was to get the higher price point & now they can potentially get the higher price point with tiered passes, as some people just don't like membership monthly billing/cancellation process. Why keep cutting prices when you're implementing a new product soon & some people are probably going to want to upgrade a single park pass to a gold plus pass at the minimum.

On the Capex, SF as of Q3 has only spent 62M of the 120-130M they claimed they would on Capex for the year. So, back loaded Capex at the end of year seems to have been planned.
