We had a terrific time at six flags. We got to enjoy a lot of the rides. It was surprising that it was on a Sunday in July and there weren't that many rides with waits. The Penguin was not fun, because of all the water inside the raft. I wish I had on sandals. The day was great.

Had a blast at this Six flags. The staff all went out of their way to make sure we knew all that the park offered. Trust me I love roller coasters, and this park delivers! I'm glad there was some one that stoped to explain about all the great shows going on and the times, if you stop to see... More

We went with two six year olds and two three year olds. We were a little afraid that there wouldn't be many rides they could go on, but there were plenty, plus they loved the ball area and playground. And all the train rides were a big hit with the little boys!

I have frequently visited this park for the past ten years and have noticed a marked improvement. The park used to be "sketchy," especially after dark. While there will probably always be groups of raucous teens, the park is overall much more family-friendly than it used to be. There's a nice toddler park, playground, and plenty of rides for all...

The park was very clean and well maintained. The workers were friendly and helpful. The variety of rides were terrific and worth the price of admission. We all had a great time would definitely go back again.

My 15 year old and I had a great time on Friday at Six Flags. The lines were short and the wait time was much better than it had been in the past. Also, I wasn't aware of the memberships they've started. I did the math and it should really pay off joining, especially in the summer. My son doesn't... More

I'm an avid theme park traveler so I had heard stories about the horrible ride operators at this park. They are true. The ride operators were slow, unintelligible over the loud speaker and didn't seem like they truly cared about their jobs. However, the various janitors and employees walking through the park were all very helpful in guiding my wife... More

When I went (July 5th) the weather was nice and there was not a lot of people so we could enjoy a lot. The characters are soooo funny and they really interact with you

as Six Flags parks go this one is on the smaller side. That said we were there on a Thursday and Friday and there were very few long wait times. Plenty to do for all ages. Best ride in the park for us was "Jokers Jinx" a high-speed launch roller coaster. Prices for food and snacks are what you would... More
