An electrical engineer from Santa Clarita, California has used a $150 annual Six Flags Magic Mountain pass to help him pay off his student loans. In an interview with Mel Magazine, the 33-year-old, who goes by Dylan, said that he took full advantage of the pass which entitled him to "unlimited, year-round access to Six Flags including a parking and two meals a day." It all started when he was working an internship back in 2014, with a Six Flags just a five-minute drive away from the office where he was working. Dylan said, "That entire first year, I don't think I ever went to the grocery store. I timed it so I was able to go there during my lunch break, go back to work, then stop back for dinner on my way home. ... It was crazy-I was saving money, paying off student loans. One of my coworkers said she spent $1,500 a month on eating out, I was like, ‘Yeah, I'm not going down that road!'" Of course one downside is the food items at Six Flags aren't exactly healthy so he's cut down on his intake these days. After seven years of saving with his Six Flags trips Dylan was able to buy a house in the nearby area. "I'm not really going anywhere," he said. "As long as they keep changing the menu, I'm happy."
