They also eliminated Saturdays in December on the 2 park pass for BAF's.

Pumpkin Nights has been extended a week for 2020 also.

It looks like they are now considering Young Christians Weekend part of the Summer Concert Series and just calling it Praise & Worship.

Well, there's certainly some sticker shock in the responses on facebook.

They have also changed the free BAF tickets.

FREE March 17 - May 17 (Not valid 4/4)
$30 May 26 - June 12
$30 July 25 - August 9
FREE August 17 - September 18 (Not valid September 5 & 6)
FREE November 29 - December 30 (Not valid Saturdays)

The whole reason we buy season passes was for all the FREE tickets. 30.00 is still a good deal. I am still not thrilled about this change though.

I am okay with the increase in price BECAUSE they now have a 9 month payment plan.

With that being said, we will NOT be buying this year. I just dont like the changes happening. Not my cup of tea.

Oh my... yeah there's gonna be quite a few people upset over these changes.

...however, its still arguably a better value than Cedar Fair and Six Flags.

Any idea what the Jubilee Homecoming is?  Looks like they shortened Bluegrass & BBQ for it.

We only get the one-park pass for SDC and usually go 3-6 times a year.  Still the best bang for the buck in my mind.  The BAF's are nice along with the coupons they send out throughout the year.   I'm not blind to the fact that costs go up and it won't affect me purchasing SPs.

So, how many years 'til the BAFs are phased out?  I've expected it for a while now, but in the last couple of years, it seems to be happening.

They wont phase out the BAF's...  those are money makers!!   

people get in free/ cheap, but most still buy food, drink and other "stuff".!!   

thats where the money is, Not the admittance fee...

I look for them to continue the program but do as they are doing now. Make them harder to use and more targeted to days with less attendance. I have not had a instance where I could use any the last couple of years with the restrictions getting tighter. Probably will not buy a season pass again this year either because of it and other things (The more it is being dollywooded) . Probably will again start focusing on places to go abroad and go to Branson less and less.

Much like they did for the 50th, they’re having a huge concert celebration event in Echo Hollow with many famous names in attendance

When you say famous do you mean famous now, or famous 30 to 40 years ago ? The 50th was a aluminum walker cast of entertainers.
