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!

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

My experience after spending over $400.00 for my family was very disappointing. It was raining the first 5 hours and most of the rides and games were closed. My nephew and his cousin ages 25 and 10 where put out and both given $50.00 citations for playing with a basketball in front of the game stand. The 10 year old... More

The rides here were in much better condition than parks with the same rides. The coasters were a lot smoother than others we've experienced. We had a good time!

I will start off by saying that we did enjoy our day at Six Flags America and I would never advise anyone to stay away from this park. The setting for the park is nice and I actually do not mind the odd layout given the space they have to work with. However, I gave it this rating because saying... More

This Six Flags park seems to have a hit or miss schedule when it comes to my experiences there. The past few visits have been good overall. The employees are friendly and generally efficient. The ride selection is not bad. A few more coasters and spinning rides will help disperse crowds on the busiest days. Visiting during the week is... More
