But the question I have is;
Gold or platinum?
Just going 1 day, a july weekend.. is the platinum worth it? Or will gold be more then enough?
With how Six Flags runs their system, Platinum may NOT be worth it in SOME cases, but your milage may vary...
- SF's setup usually allows you 10-30 minutes between the time where you reach the FP merge point and they clear your current ride, and when you walkup to your next ride. With Platinum, your wait is usually under 5 minutes, so it's constantly buzzing saying your next ride is ready while you're on the current ride. IMO, it's kind of annoying. Since you have a built in "wait" until you get to your next ride, why pay to eliminate that? Many times, Gold's wait time lines up with this. With a $25-40 difference between Gold and Platinum, I've considered it a waste at times in the past.
- Platinum will grant you access to new and/or massively slow rides. This is based on what's offered (not sure for SFGAdv off hand). Again, base the extra $$$ on your perceptions of these attractions.
