Does anyone know if they are getting rid of the food discount for regular pass holders? It appears that they are(itís not listed on the pass holder benefits).

Now that would be unfortunate.  I am still on the fence as to if I am going to do the extension for my season pass for next year.  I just do not think I can do the mask thing.  I do not like the metal detectors at the entrance, it is just starting to turn into a place I am not sure I want to deal with anymore, or at least for a year or two.

I think the list is messed up...
they are trying to get people to buy the Gold membership
I looked at it pretty close this weekend, 
I couldnt find a specific list for regular SP holders..

pretty sure they "forgot" to list a couple of the regular season pass benefits in order to make the Gold Membership more appealing.. ( i hope so anyway)

If you go to the Season Passes Page https://www.silverdollarcity.com/Tickets/Season-Passes, and scroll down to "Compare the Benefits" and under the chart is a link labeled "See All Benefits".   That's where I got the list.

Yeah it looks like the number of BAF free passes are being nearly cut in half (from 5 to 3) for the standard pass. Losing the meal discount is a bit disappointing too.

Not sure where your getting 5 free BAF passes.  In the first packet for 2020 I received 3 free and 1 for $30 and it looks like they are offering the same thing for 2021.

Now they did offer the bonus opening day BAF because season pass holders missed the 3/17 to 5/17 BAF.

It does depend on when you get the passes as to how many BAF's you get but I do remember in years past you could get up to 5 passes whether they be free or reduced price. ($25 or $35 on the latter)

They have gradually cut down the bring a friend over the last few years.  I was just comparing BAF from 2020 to 2021 with early purchase of season pass (looks like no difference).

I believe there might be a pretty big complaint when season pass holders realize they are not getting any food discounts for 2021.  I believe this and the gold pass is probably an income makeup for last year.  I mean when you take a 10% discount away on all food purchased by season pass holders...that is quite a bit of income.

But then again a 20% discount on the gold pass would be pretty nice if you made enough trips and ate at the city a lot.

I think I read somewhere they are talking about the trailblazer pass and photo cards and a few other things when talking about "premium On-Park Experiences".

Those things are listed, but don't seem to be "experiences", so I wonder.

I am leaning further toward not extending my pass.  If I do go ahead and extend it, I will not be buying passes for the following year.
