I went here with my 15 year old son. We have season passes in St Louis and decided to make the trip up to ride the incredible coasters. The coasters are phenomenal but the lines are insanely long. 2 rides in 4 hours is just too long.

As a coaster enthusiast, I really enjoyed this park very much. They have a terrific lineup of roller coasters. The best coaster is by far Goliath. This ride is insane! It is a relatively short ride, but the great intensity makes up for it. Raging Bull, Batman: The Ride, and Viper are also very thrilling rides. The customer service, ride... More

Well, to start, I accidentally ordered tickets for the wrong park online so be careful!! I tried calling the parks and corporate immediately when I realized the mistake. I called several times and left 3 messages and no one called back….ever. Kind of a "got ya" mentality. Most companies care enough about their customers to not penalize them for an... More

We went to Great America because my granddaughter had won a ticket to go.She wanted me to go to ride the roller coasters and we did later another family arrived to make it that much more enjoyable. We stayed till the park closed after the the parade. It's we worth your while to stop there for at least one day.

I have been to Six Flags twice and the rides are just awesome. My most favorite is the Superman ride. Thrill unlimited is the tagline that I can really give to this place. The entertainment shows, the food the music is all first rate. There is a waterpark too that is open during the summers and has some great slides.

I have had a season pass for the past several years and it never ceases to deliver value. Always a good time and in the past couple of years, the park has only gotten better. Very clean and very friendly employees with great rides. I've noticed that the number of visitors has increased and it reminds me of when I... More
