Great coasters and rider, poor food service and lack of clean restrooms.

Great coasters! Excellent park décor, loved the water wheel on the log flume. Safari ride was too crowded and not well organized. For the excellent ride management, it was... read more

Got a train from 42 St then went to Port Authority to purchase the train bus and park ticket costing US$72.00 a bit pricey but worth every penny considering the distance to and from the park and for 90% of the park rides! Got to the park for 11am there about after taking the 10am bus. Had loads of fun... More

We had the best time with our 5 year old granddaughter. It was her first time at the park and she loved every minute.

Great coasters! Excellent park décor, loved the water wheel on the log flume. Safari ride was too crowded and not well organized. For the excellent ride management, it was disappointing to be seriously let down by the food options. Food service was poor as was the cleanliness. Restrooms at the start of the day are very poorly maintained. A 6... More

there are many rides and coasters, but only one wooden one. Fortunately, it is the absolute best wooden coaster in the world (El Toro). We go on the Safari experience every time and each time it is different. One drawback is the parking lot, which is a scene out of the wild-west (poor black-top, and crazy drivers). For such a...

Let's get right to the point : A trip to Six Flags Great Adventure is VERY pricey. From the $25 parking to the $12 kids meals be prepared for a sticker shock that puts Disney to shame. But we had an EXCELLENT time at the park. It's very spacious and has attractions that appeal to all ages. Our absolute favorite... More

A lot of fun rides to go through and suitable for different ages. I can get pretty busy and you will spend a lot of time in lines. Try going on a weekday after 6 pm to avoid long lines.

Very pricey and the fact that you have to pay for parking is ridiculous but the kids love it and there is tons to do. You need a couple days to do the water park as well as GA and the Safari to get the full deal. No hotels that are too close but some camping areas

I visited Six Flags with some friends recently for the first time. The park is awesome. They have awesome roller coasters and other attractions. They have a coaster that goes upside down seven times called Bizzaro (my favorite) and a second coaster called Nitro that is awesome too! Great rides! Friendly staff! I would highly recommend visiting this park. Invest... More

This is a great family getaway!! Fun for all ages and well worth the money!! Everyone loved The Safari Adventure, get in line early it's well worth the wait and you can participate in feeding the giraffes every hour on the half hour. Our girls loved every minute of this trip!
