The deal isn’t expected to close until sometime next year, meaning park passes and prices should stay the same until then.

The new company will have the most monstrous all-park season pass.

You’ll be able to get a season pass to not only get you to King’s Island, but get you in Six Flags over in Georgia, or Six Flags over in Texas, and vice versa.

Passholders could get into all 27 parks in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The newly formed company has a new combined worth of nearly $8 billion.
