New articles released every Monday & Friday!
The day that the Diamond Elite membership was announced, I knew that it was the pass for me. I visit the park over 60 times each season and it was a no brainer that I upgrade to a level that gives me so many great benefits. I've had my Diamond Elite Membership for just over 3 months now which has allowed me to take advantage of many of its perks. Below are 5 reasons why I love my Diamond Elite Membership!
1. The Discounts
The Diamond Elite Membership offers a 50% discount on most in park items. This includes food, souvenirs, drink bottles, dining passes and more! The savings that I get on in-park purchases are enough to justify the cost of the membership alone. The discounts are valid at every Six Flags property which means that I can save at other parks as well!
2. VIP Parking
The last thing that I want to do after a day at the park is walk a 1/2 mile to my car. This is just one of the places where the Diamond Elite membership shines! Rather than having to show up nearly an hour before park opening to get a good parking spot, I can simply make a reservation online that entitiles me to park up close in the VIP parking lot. You can also show up at any time throughout the day to use your spot (as long as you have a reservation, of course).
3. Skip The Lines On 2 Rides Each Visit
Another awesome perk of the Diamond Elite membership is that I get to skip 2 ride lines each time I'm at the park. On busy days, this can save me potentially 3 or more hours of waiting and is almost worth the membership price alone. To pick up your skip the line passes, simply go to the Flash Pass Headquarters at the front of the park.
4. The Membership Card
The four new membership options each feature unique cards, something new to the Six Flags company just this season. The Diamond Elite card, being that it's for the most expensive option, has a high quality look and feel. It features a cutout at the top to easily attach your card to a lanyard and the plastic is thick and much higher quality than the regular season pass cards. The membership card also has a hologram that shines different colors in the sunlight.
5. The Flash Pass Upgrades
Even though most of my Six Flags adventures are at the Arlington location, I still venture out to other parks multiple times each year. Because the Diamond Elite perks can be used at any park, I can get a free Flash Pass upgrade by simply showing my pass. This means that I can pay the price of a regaular and get a gold, or pay the price of the gold and get a platinum! This perk has already saved me well over $100 and the summer season is only just beginning!
