Bottom line: Lots of fun for Bay Area families, but time would be better spent elsewhere if you are visiting from out of town. For tourists: Magic Mountain outside of LA is a much more substantial coaster and thrill ride park. Universal Studios in LA and, of course, Disneyland are the other two California amusement parks that are truly outstanding... More

We have had season passes for several years. We enjoy all of the animal shows and the go carts. One year we went sledding in the winter which was great fun. Lines can be long for short rides, but when its not busy we enjoy the rides.

This is easily the worst Six Flags I have been to. The park was run down, employees disinterested and less than helpful, short staffed, parking is a mess, and overall disorganized. We happened to be there while five different, large events were taking place. More than half the restaurants and snack stands were closed because, "too many people called in... More

There is a lot to do and see. The parking lot could be more organized to move in and out faster. Give yourself extra time . Plus there is a security line that takes forever! The rides were great. Lines moved at a good pace. Just be prepared to stand in line, exposed to the sun . We came knowing... More

Visited here weekend in September 2016 and had an overall great day! The good stuff first... The rides (if you are a coaster junkie like me!) are excellent. From classics like Superman, through the short but excellent V2, and the simply stunning new Joker ride. The park is pretty compact and we easily got around all the "big" coasters in... More

We bought a great deal on season passes on Labor Day weekend 2016. $52 (approximately) for 2017 season pass, plus season pass for the rest of 2016, which includes their Fright Fest admission and Holiday Lights extravaganza. Also free parking every visit. But buyer beware, the Fright Fest has separate entree fees for the haunted attractions. $30 to $45, depending... More

I recently visited this park and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of rides and activities. There are thrill rides that the adventurers will be sure to love, especially The Joker! There are also small rides for little ones and also carnival type rides and games as well. For all ages there are several animal exhibits and shows that are... More

Nice place to visit. They have several animal shows to enjoy and the rides are awesome. I loved the Guason and the Medusa.

My son is at Travis AFB. We visited and all went to six flags. My granddaughter loved it. I've been to Six Flags in Missouri and Texas. This Six Flags had several unique things that made it very much worth the trip. I was afraid I would see 'same old, same old'... but we didn't. We all had a great... More

Personally, everything was reasonable. Bought a gold season pass with a dining pass add on and after spending the first day sorting it out, our weekend went by very smoothly. Lines were reasonable, only complaint was the slow food service. Everything else was great. *the joker is by far my new favorite ride, it's awesome!*
