This hero saved thousands by eating every meal at Six Flags—and he’s not the only one [Updated] – The Takeout 

We love travel hacking, how about food hacking! I noticed this plan when I had a membership for Six Flags when my parents lived in Georgia. I thought it would be a great option if you lived or worked nearby but I never would have done it every day.  That is taking it way too far lol.
