Six Flags New England

Give the gift of Six Flags New England: your kids will be thrilled to find a Season Pass under the tree and you can buy them online here. After missing all of last summer, they’ll be making up for lost time in 2021! Plus these passes pay for themselves after only two visits!

The Zoo in Forest Park

Adopt an animal from The Zoo in Forest Park. The zoo is closed for the season but the animals still need some love. Each sponsorship package will include a welcome letter with your selected animal’s personal story, including the details of how they came to live at The Zoo and two one-day passes for the 2021 season. Other ways to support the zoo are detailed here.

All offer gift cards for future visits.
