There are so many reasons why a Season Pass is worth its weight in gold. There's the savings, early ride time, the discounts, early entry into the waterpark - not to mention all the unique experiences that come with unlimited visits all year. We could go on and on, but instead - here are a few of our favorite benefits and perks.  

Reason One: A Season Pass pays for itself in less than two visits.

This is definitely one of the most popular reasons. People like saving money, and when you can visit two times and have your Season Pass pay for itself, it's a no-brainer. The more you visit, the more you save.

Reason Seven: Early Ride Time on Fury 325

Beat the crowd and enjoy exclusive access to the world's tallest and fastest giga coaster, Fury 325. You also get 30 minutes of early access to Carolina Harbor waterpark and the six-story slide complex Blackbeard's Revenge. That's almost 53 hours of exclusive time with your some of your favorite attractions.
