Arrived into the park at noon, an hour after opening. Managed to go on only two rides before park became massively overcrowded after 3pm. Still had to wait at least 1 1/2 hours for both rides (swing chairs and Nitro) before 3pm then after 3pm, wait times for all rides were 2 hours plus. We figured we could get onto... More

Too much but too much adrenalin to me! The park is excellent if you are not afraid of high and speed.

Paid for 2 passes and Haunted House tickets. October 18th. The park was over crowded, ride 1 ride after waiting in line over a hour. Waited in line for the Haunted house but never got in! Not worth the money! Save your money! Go to another place! Over Crowded!!! Should be against the law.

The rides are fun and the park is laid out nicely. The staff, whether on the rides, at the shops, or the cleaning crew, are friendly enough. The only problem we have encountered on more than one occasion is they don't always use all the cars/carts/trains or whatever. Large crowds will stand in line for an hour because they are... More

I love coasters and we came all the way from Finland to go to Kingda Ka, world’s highest roller coaster. And I LOVED it! Parking was way too expensive (25 dollars!) and Six Flags allows way too many guests into the park. The lines in this park were ridiculously long; in some of the rides u had to wait 2... More

My last review was after visiting the park once this season (2014) we held season passes last year and opted for the membership beginning June 2014, we included the dining pass so we could enjoy all day visits without having to leave the park like the season prior (picnic in car). I can not even begin to tell you how... More

I am writing this review while waiting on line for the Safari.Two and a half hours and counting watching empty safari trucks drive by without picking up guests. The mismanagement is astounding. They took an attraction that worked for years (drive your own car through the safari) and changed it to squeeze a bit more money out of it, creating... More

Attended fright fest last night, Oct 12/Sunday. It was by far the worst & most dangerous amusement park I have experienced. I arrived at the entrance to the park at 2:30 & proceeded to sit in a sea of cars for almost an hour before I could hand over $25.00 to park. Six flags allowed an unlimited number of people... More

Took our boys (12 and 9) to this Halloween torture chamber of amusement on a Sunday night. Went last year and had a great time...very different this year. Too crowded and could only go in one haunted house and one ride due to lines in excess of 1.5 hours (including 45 minutes to park). Asked Melissa (guest relations supervisor) to... More

Overall the friendliness of the staff was on par, some were much more enthusiastic than others but overall the customer service was good. Kingda Ka we waited about an hour and forty five minutes for but thats to be expected( A great ride by the way.) Food prices were exorbitant but nothing unexpected, and food quality was at theme park... More
