We have passes to Six Flags because we live in NJ and go to Great Adventure in Jackson. We thought it would be fun to see one of the other parks. The park is beautifully decorated and very clean. My son had fun riding the different coasters and rides that they did not have in NJ (he is a coaster... More

Fright Fest was worth the extra money and wait times. The park took the time to make the environment as engaging and scary within the allotted time frame. The Awakening is a must see!

Great experience. Low lines. Only disappointment was that it was an extra fee to do the Halloween events. I think after spending a fortune to get into the park and parking, that this should be included.

I went to Six Flags outside of Washington DC for Fright Fest this year. I had a really great time! There were no lines for the rides, you could go on them as many times as you wanted. During the day, the park is very family friendly. There are no ghouls walking around or anything to frighten kids. The children... More

They have poor service, almost everyone seems angry when you asked for a question or when you want to buy food.

Went for fright fest. When first getting there, the security guard told my 12 year old daughter to take her face paint off. Spoke to management who just bent over and said that the rules were 12 and under can only were face paint. When I explained my daughter was 12 we were told she was too tall. She is... More

Packs of urban youth running around in gang like clothing. Mayhem. Pushing. Not enough security to control crowds. People jumping out of their cars and fighting over parking spaces. Horrible. Expensive. Avoid!

if you read my reviews you will know i am a roller-coaster regular but this was my first Six flags park. Reading the reviews on TripAdvisor i was concerned but it seems Six flags is also reading these reviews and they are acting to resolve their issues , well done indeed. We went as the park opened the morning in... More

If you go during a weekend or holiday expect long waits for everything and having to have an eagle eye to get a chair at the wave pool. But overall it was quite a fun day out, we went first thing when they opened which is advisable because as the day wore on more and more rides were being temporarily... More
