I've been here 3 times, Great Adventure 4 times and New England too many to count and rate America the best of the bunch. My daughter and I are roller coaster fans and like all three parks for the variety and size of the coasters, but what sets apart America is the lines are much shorter that the other parks... More

This is not as good as Hershey, PA or Busch Gardens, VA. It is a better than average amusement park/water park. The biggest advantage is that it is close to home for hundreds of thousands of people. We love the Halloween spectacular most of all. They have a large army of private security. The park is clean. The admission rates... More

My friends and I visited Six Flags in November, when Fright Fest was ending, and I'm so glad we got a chance! We started our day a little before 1PM and since the park was not crowded at all, we ended up getting on all of the roller coasters. We never had to wait, and sometimes the three of us... More

My family and I visited here twice last month. We were a little nervous because it has somewhat of a bad reputation. We decided to go and see for ourselves since they had a good military special on ticket prices. It was only $26 per person and it included parking. Can't beat that! We had a great time for fright...

We drove from New York to Miami with a stop in orlando. Everyone said we should do the parks but only had 2 days there with so much else to see and prices of the orlando prks so high we looked for other options along the way. Man was I glad that I found this place for our stay in... More

We had a great time at the Fest this year. The characters really did a good job in scaring everyone as we walked through the park; very up close and personal. The Blood Moon Show was lively and action packed. Not to mention, I rode Ride of Steel for the first time and that was a thrill! Looking forward to... More

This is a nice theme park to go for a fun,quick getaway. It is nicely set up to where at the end of the night your feet are not killing you. Plenty of rides and things to do for everyone in the family. Lines are not long at all at, making your time there well spent instead of wasted. If... More

It's what I look forward to each day it's open! I love this park! I love the staff and the security. I love the parks cleanliness and beauty. Most of all, I love the Rides! I'm so sad to see this season coming to a close for now, but it's only temporarily because of the time of year, but trust... More

A few friends and I went to Frightfest and it was AWESOME! The park was clean, the lines were short, even the staff was friendly ( aside from the ghouls and monsters bent on scaring the living daylights out of everyone ). I highly recommend and will be back soon!

We love six flags in October. There aren't long lines and the zombies throughout the park are amazing and frightening!
