Always a crowd

There is so much to see and do here that there always seems to be a crowd. Arriving early helps with the lines not only for the rides, but security and entrance. Also the parking... read more

Buy your tickets in advance, or you'll wait on line twice instead of 3x's just to get in. Get good coupons or go at least twice on a season pass and buy your season pass cheap (in October). Don't go on a super hot, or busy day and wait in line for hours in the heat just to go on... More

Easy to buy, use and activate the season pass and dining pass. Simple routine and worth the price. Shopping was nice.

Super expensive, many of the rides were closed, in need up updating... the foam is destroyed on a lot of the rides & rusted. Security was a pita... would not let me bring in a 9" bendable phone tripod. Told me I had 2 choices... they take it and I don't get it back or walk back to my car... More

There is so much to see and do here that there always seems to be a crowd. Arriving early helps with the lines not only for the rides, but security and entrance. Also the parking lot fills up quickly, but there are enough spaces to accommodate all. We attended Fright Feast as well as the normal park before Fright Feast... More

My boyfriend and I purchased 2017 season passes as well as a meal pass. We went on a Saturday in late September and had a fantastic day!!!! My only complaint was that we read that u are able to trade lunch for a snack on the meal pass, but the employee didn't actually trade it in so we went to... More

Beautiful day at six flags! Something for everyone. Roller coasters for all thrill levels. Our personal favorite is the safari- long line but worth the wait. Kids loved being up close with an anteater and baby lions! Precious! Get there early for the best parking otherwise it's worth the $10 for preferred parking.

Super pleased with our first trip to Six Flags! 'did Fright Fest for the older kids and teens during Bring-a-friend for $15, and the next morning, our family went back to do Safari and kiddie rides. Half the family got season pass tickets and dining passes. Our group of 12 were composed of grandparents, parents, young adults, kids, and young... More

Fright Festival is an enjoyable fun-filled family event. Loved all the decorations throughout the park. The inside of the park was exceptionally clean. Food prices need to be lowered and more realistic.

Went there last night wasn't scary at all. Very few scare actors around the park. The lines are very long. Got there at 630 could only get four haunted houses in which weren't worth the 45 minute wait time. People all around us complaining about the same thing. They need to go to Universal Studios Orlando and see how it... More

My group and I had an amazing time. We arrived at the park just as it opened at 11am and left at midnight when the park closed. We went out to our car a couple of times to get food or drinks that we packed so that we did not have to spend as much money if we did not... More
