Dining Options

Dining Passes can mean significant savings for individuals or families that plan on visiting the park more than four times. 

Purchase a dining plan as an add-on online, print out the voucher, and bring the voucher to the Pass Processing Center at the park to be validated on your first visit of the season.

Gold Dining Pass: $92.99 each

The gold plan has all of the Basic Dining Pass benefits plus a free sports bottle for unlimited drinks all season, 20 percent off bonus and lunch, dinner and a snack each visit.

Basic Dining Pass:  $54.99 each

Includes lunch and a snack each visit, various eateries to choose from and a wide selection of entrees, sides and snacks.

What does it get me? 
There are three main rules when it comes to the Dining Pass…
1.) You get a lunch and a snack each day you visit the park
2.) You can use your dining pass every day you visit during the regular season, even if you visit the park every day! 
3.) There is no sharing of dining passes
4.) Flexbility to replace a meal with a snack

Tip: Six Flags has stated that it’s an excellent  deal for anyone visiting the park 4 or more times, based off of average food costs. Click here for an upclose and personal look at the menu.

How Do I Redeem My Meals?

When you scan your Season Pass ID at the turnstiles to enter the park, your meals for the day will automatically be added to your Season Pass card. If you arrive before 3:30 p.m., both lunch and dinner will be added. If you arrive after 3:30 p.m., only dinner will be added. As you’re enjoying the park,  stop by one of the participating dining locations and present your Season Pass ID when placing your order for lunch or dinner. The Six Flags Team Member will verify the photo on the Season Pass and serve you your meal. If you wish to order any additional items, you’ll pay for them at that time. (More info: https://www.sixflags.com/greatamerica/store/season-dining-passes).
