My family has enjoyed this park for many years, from dates in high school to now taking our own kids. Crowds are always bigger on the weekends, so try to find an overcast weekday to go. We find good value in the season pass now that our kids are big enough to go on the large coasters and we take advantage of both bring-a-friend days. We did not take them until they could go on most of the rides - I could not justify the cost for myself to watch little kids on just a few carnival-like rides. Go early and stay late - get your value out of the day. The food is pricey and not usually very good, so we tend to eat on the way, have a snack at the park, and eat on the way home. This park has been a staple of our summers for years and we look forward to many more trips.
