Seniors jump for joy about the new Grad Nite location.

For the past few years, seniors at Orcutt Academy have experienced their Grad Nite at Disneyland. However, due to limited spots at the Disneyland Grad Nite event, this year’s seniors will have to relocate their festivities to Six Flags amusement park.

As a result, seniors were given ballots to vote for which amusement park they would like to attend for Grade Nite a few weeks ago during Spartan Seminar. The three choices were Universal Studios, Six Flags, and California Adventure; each option having its advantages and disadvantages.

Each amusement park entailed the following details as follows:

Universal Studios Six Flags California Adventure
  • $95
  • Leave Friday at 11 AM, return at 6 AM on Saturday
  • Meal voucher of $15
  • Silent disco and dance parties
  • Rides for seniors exclusively from 3pm- 2am
  • $98
  • Leave Thursday at 6 PM, return at 8 PM on Friday
  • 4 hour buffet
  • Free season pass for all students
  • Movies will be shown all night
  • $99
  • Leave Wednesday at 12 PM, return Thursday at 6 PM
  • Disneyland not included
  • Admission with the public until 9 PM, seniors only from 9 PM – 2 AM
  • Entertainment and dance parties throughout the park

Zachery Williams says the free season pass, the buffet, the dance parties, and especially the roller coasters were most appealing to him and a large number of students, swaying them to vote for Six Flags. Zachery also mentions the movies provide entertainment for the group of those who don’t enjoy roller coasters.

    I had heard about this from some, about the moving of the senior trip, and I felt that presentation of the info was really easy and understandable to read.

    Hi Hope! I am personally very excited for the grad night trip to Six Flags. Although I do see how some students who dislike roller-coasters may be dissatisfied, it is not the majority. I think everyone will have fun if they try to, because there are many great perks that come along with it.
