The Flash Pass

Hi guys! :) I'm planning a trip to my local Six Flags (Springfield, MA) and was wondering whether anyone had any experience with the Flash pass. It's an additional pass that people can buy in order to reserve their place in line/skip it. The only problem is that it costs a lot of money! :) Here it's $27 to reserve your spot (regular flash pass) and $56 to save your spot in line (gold pass) at least! Has anyone here bought one for themselves and/or their family? Did you have a better experience overall because of it, or was it not worth the money? Thanks for your help! :)

We got the flash pass and it was wonderful! Our waits in line with the flash pass were about 5-15 minutes - without they were about 2 hours!

It's just so much money though! :) A whole day's work for me on minimum wage, the gold pass anyway. Did you get the Gold pass? :) If so, did they have you sit through a procedure at the park itself (I hear that they have to walk you through it so you have to reserve 20 minutes before entering the park to hear their spiel)? Thanks so much for your help!

I know! We were lucky enough to win it - Hubby ate a cockroach for it! (He is crazy!) LOL!
