Guys if you like to sit only in roller coasters then its the place to be. I Personally felt it is too expensive unless you are a roller coaster lover. Every other ride, games are chargeable, its a rip off. Sad part is we got to wait at least 45min for every ride. Water park was closed for my bad... More

This was my second year of attending Fright Fest at Great Adventure and I had an equally great time! The parade at 6pm, the outdoor concert, and the indoor play is not to be missed! Also had a great time at the Sea Lion show (great for both the old and young and everyone in-between).

Not a lot of "monsters" roaming the park. Lines are way too long. I have never had a line to wait to park, we did during Fright Fest. We experienced it. Would never go again!

Try out Kinda Ka. This will be the ride of your life...the highest (139 meters) & second fastest (206 km/h) rollercoaster in the world.... Sixx flags is about 1.5 hours away from NYC. Entrance fee is 70$ per person but you can get it with discount if you book an overnight stay in a nearby motel.

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

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
