I hadn't been here for many years, and was pleasantly surprised. Very nice place to bring families, and it's a bonus that the water park is included! We got the season pass, and even stop here in the evenings during the week. Only suggestion would be to add a few more rides for the kids who aren't quite ready for... More

Trust me. If you want to have good, safe fun you'd be better off going somewhere else. This place isn't worth the cost of admission and parking.

This is not a recent review but it left quite an impression on me. I wanted to like this place as it's not far from me, whereas King's Dominion is about 2 hrs away. It's every bit as expensive as KD, but the place was pretty filthy, and the pool was, well, a giant petrie dish of bandaids and "other... More

Of course I don't mean that I became a drug addict! I became a "rollercoaster addict" at this park! I love it, and I've been sick all winter, as I wait for it to reopen! I love this park! The staff - all of them are so courteous and helpful! It's always neat and clean! I feel safely guarded whenever... More

The coasters are good especially the old wood one. But the park suffers from some of the clientele from DC.

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...
