We went for an overnight over spring break and had a wonderful time. This is for sure a place for children and not an adult adventure, unless you're into that kind of thing. I have to say that when we pulled into the parking lot, the garbage was very offputting; however, once we got into the hotel, it was lovely... More

Just returned from a one night stay. This place is very disorganized and run poorly. From the time we arrived until we left we felt it was overpriced and customer service wasn't the best. When we checked in we waited about an hour just to get to te desk. Staff are slow and unapologetic. I called before we left to... More

We stayed at this resort for several days over the presidents day weekend. There were several small thing wrong with our room: lamp not working, fridge not cooling, etc. Fridge was fixed in a timely manner, which saved our cold items, but other issues were not resolved. Our room was also very hot. Even with the heat set at 60... More

I have visited this park since it was called "Storytown". Some of the attractions or pieces of those 50 year old rides still exist. My young son could spend countless hours running around this park with his friends, but from an adult perspective this park is mediocre and overpriced. The appearance of some of the rides and attractions do not... More

I love this Six Flags!! We live in Mass and the Six Flags there is so crowded, I dread taking my kids and going there! So we always make sure we come here during our stay at Lake George. I like how the park isn't over crowded and it's really geared more toward young children. We love the train ride!... More

Water park is okay, nothing really stands out, overpriced everything. Mediocre rides. Nice kids rides though. Not for the average thrill seeker. If you want a boring six flags, go here!

Great getaway for family. Indoor water park was perfect for the kids ages 5 & 7. Water temp could have been warmer for the toddler pool, and in the park in general. Bring wetsuit next time. Staff was very helpful and lifeguards were really on the lookout. Need more towels, they ran out, and need more tubes for the rides.... More

It is park of the six flags family. Not many rides, geared more towards families than to thrill seekers - that being said there are some scary coasters! We come here every year after a week long stay to LG, right before a long car ride home.

The Great Escape Six Flags in Lake George NY is satisfactory for our family. I myself mainly use the waterpark. The granny type rides (carousel, ski lift, etc,) are excellent for someone like me who doesn't care for what I title "vomit rides". As far as the kids, they also love the waterpark and there are some good rides and... More

I have been to a few Six Flags parks. This one is the most family oriented one I have seen. There have all types of rides for all ages. Personally, my wife and I are more roller coaster people. They had some but only two upside down ones. The park was kept very clean. Some rides looked like they were... More
