Rare $150 pass lets guests eat all meals at Massive California theme park for life
Could you imagine paying $150.00 to eat for an entire year? What if we told you that also meant going to a theme park every day to get that food? One man took up the challenge and saved thousands of dollars.
In 2020, the average cost of groceries was $4,942, with an average of $412.00 per month. This does not include the cost of restaurant meals or orders, which can easily add a few thousand dollars to that cost. Paying for food is incredibly expensive, so Dylan chose to take advantage of an amazing deal Six Flags Magic Mountain was offering. Although not currently available, Dylan purchased a $150.00 pass, for an annually renewable park pass, which included free parking and two meals each time you enter.
It seems that Dylan has the ability to renew this deal every year, which caused him to spend almost $0 on food. Dylan works near Six Flags Magic Mountain, so he tends to go there for lunch and, on the way back, also stops at the theme park for dinner. Dylan was asked about his new meal routine:
“Throughout that first year, I don’t think I ever went to the grocery store,” he says. “I timed it so I could go on my lunch break, get back to work, then stop for dinner on the way home.”
He claims to have maintained this for years and: “It may sound weird, but after just seven years of daily dining at the theme park, Dylan paid off his student loans, got married and bought a house.”
Dylan is now 33, married and working, and no longer uses the pass daily, however, he noted he still has it, and it works!
