How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Using a Flash Pass at Six Flags is a convenient way to enjoy more rides during a trip to the amusement park. A Flash Pass usually comes in the form of a Q-Bot that you are supposed to make reservations on and keep with you as you enjoy the park. The cost of a Flash Pass is more than the regular admission, but park-goers who use the pass typically ride more attractions and wait in line for less time.

Steps

Part 1 of 3: Obtaining the Flash Pass

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Be prepared for the cost of the Flash Pass. A Flash Pass is great for skipping lines, but it can be quite costly if you are going to Six Flags with a larger group. A Platinum Flash Pass (the most expensive pass) would cost $896 for a family of four, and that’s not including parking and food. The Flash Pass would definitely be worth it on busy days, but it might not be if you visit the park when it’s not peak season.

  • A regular pass is usually about $45.
  • You can go to the park and look at the screen that shows wait times to decide if the pass will be worth it.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Decide what kind of flash pass you would like. Six Flags theme parks may have different Flash Pass plans and prices, though many parks do offer the same plans. Typically, three different Flash Passes are offered. There is a regular Flash Pass, Gold Flash Pass, and Platinum Flash Pass. The regular Flash Pass is the cheapest, and the Platinum is the most expensive. Determine which plan best meets your needs and fits your budget.

  • The Gold Flash pass promises to reduce wait time by 50%. This pass usually costs about $70.
  • The Platinum Flash Pas promises to reduce wait time by 90%. This type of pass can range from $100 to $145.
  • Some parks also offer an All Season Flash Pass.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Purchase your Six Flags Flash Pass online. The simplest and easiest way to buy the Flash Pass is online. Go to the Six Flags website for the location you will be visiting. Find the section for Flash Passes and choose a pass. Select how many people will be in your group. Although up to six people can be on one device for the pass, you will need to purchase each pass separately. Fill in your billing information and then you can pick up the pass when you arrive at the park.

  • It is important that you make sure you’re buying a Flash Pass for the right Six Flags theme park.
  • You will need to bring your ID with you. Only one person per group will need to leave their ID at the registration center. Their ID will be held while using the Flash Pass and will be given back when they return the device.

Buy the pass at the park. It’s okay if you can’t buy the pass online. You can buy a Flash Pass when you purchase your entry tickets at the gate of the park. Keep in mind that the wait will probably be longer if you wait to purchase the tickets and Flash Pass at the park.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Pick up the Flash Pass. When you purchase a Flash Pass, you will usually receive a Q-Bot, which is a device used to make ride reservations. One Q-Bot can be used for up to six people. The device resembles an oval-shaped beeper. The Q-Bot will have a screen that you can scroll through to make reservations for rides.

Part 2 of 3: Choosing Rides

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Choose a roller coaster you want to ride. Individual Six Flags theme parks offer different rides, so your choices will vary from park to park. The easiest way to see which rides the Flash Pass works for is to check the list online at your specific park’s website. You can also check with park operations for a complete list of which rides are eligible for the Flash Pass service.

  • The pass will usually work for all of the major rides at the park.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Make a ride reservation. Do this once you’ve identified the ride you want to go on. This is done by either scanning a pager-like device through the reservation stations in front of each Flash Pass compliant attraction, or by entering the information on your Q-Bot. The reservation system varies by park, so check with Six Flags officials about the reservation process at each park.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Keep the Flash Pass in a safe spot. Once you’ve made your initial reservations, keep the Q-Bot in a safe place while you enjoy the park. Most of the Flash Passes will come with a clip, so it is best to clip it to a belt loop or somewhere else that is secure. You can also keep it in a pocket, but don’t carry it around in your hand if you don’t have to.

  • The pass could be dropped or lost if you carry it around in your hand.

Part 3 of 3: Using the Flash Pass

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Enjoy other attractions while you wait. Once you’ve filed your Flash Pass reservation, you’re free to enjoy other attractions at Six Flags. Your Q-Bot will notify you when it’s time to go to your reserved Flash Pass attraction. It will typically notify you by vibrating, so keep the Flash Pass close to you.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Locate the Flash Pass entrance. Each attraction offers a separate entrance for Flash Pass users. The entrance will either lead to a different line, or allow you to cut the regular line. An employee will scan the Flash Pass to confirm your reservation, and then you can enjoy your ride with little to no wait time.

  • Some rides will require you to sit in Flash Pass rows.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Cancel ride reservations if you change your mind. It’s okay if you want to take a break or change your mind about a ride. It’s simple to cancel reservations. The Q-Bot should give you an option to cancel ride reservations, but if not, you can ask an employee.

How to Use a Flash Pass at Six Flags

Return the Q-Bot. Go to the Flash Pass center at the park to return your Q-Bot. The Q-Bot should be in the same condition as you received it or you will have to pay a fee. The fee varies from park to park.

Warnings

  • Some Six Flags theme parks allow you to show up for your reserved ride any time after your Flash Pass reservation has been called. However, other parks may cancel your reservations if you show up too late. Make sure you understand the Flash Pass time limitations at each park. Thanks! Helpful 6 Not Helpful 5
  • If your device is lost, damaged, or stolen, you will have to pay a $250 fine. If you don’t pay, your ID will not be given back until you pay it. Thanks! Helpful 0 Not Helpful 4
