Labor Day weekend is practically here, and we are hoping many of you get some time off and score some deals too!


Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Phoenix is thanking veterans, active duty U.S. military, and first responders (active duty police, fire, and EMT) with FREE admission to the waterpark this Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (August 30 - September 2). Additionally, up to six immediate family members will score half-off admission, $22.99 plus tax during the special weekend. Make sure you have your government-issued ID's or badges handy. This weekend event will be called, "Salute to Heroes" Labor Day Weekend Celebration.

The fine print: One free admission per ID per day. All tickets must be used on day of distribution only. Must have a valid government-issued ID or badge.

The hours: The waterpark will be open from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. both Saturday and Monday. Then Sunday, September 1, it's open from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. with a stunning free fireworks shows beginning at 7:45 p.m. The park is open weekends in September and October from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in October until October 13.
