This park is one of my favorites. If I had to compare all the rides here to Cedar Point, I believe these rides are better than Cedar Point. I love Kingda Ka, but I visited three... read more

I would like to have given the place an excellent (or at least a very good), but the park is constantly plagued with ride malfunctions and employees who don't seem to care that people stand in lines for hours all day. The concessions, while overpriced, aren't really all that good either. Bring a cooler with your own food, pop back... More

This park is one of my favorites. If I had to compare all the rides here to Cedar Point, I believe these rides are better than Cedar Point. I love Kingda Ka, but I visited three times last year and it was only open once. Also the line is ridiculous for a 20 second ride. Kingda Ka and Zumajaro cannot... More

We decided to go to Fright Fest (first time for us). We love Six Flags and we love the rides, it was a lot of fun but we were very disappointed in the long lines we had to wait to do anything. The line just to get the Fast Pass took HOURS... Very frustrating and I think GA should come... More

This is a great cash cow. The crowds remind me of the Gangs of New York. The food offered is weak at best. You can find a decent meal but you'll have to walk to it. The ride lines are way too long, pushing, shoving, stepped on etc is quite common and for what they charge one would think they... More

its ok for a theme park, lines are long (as expected), employees seem overworked, but, always have a smile and very polite, even to those who are mean to them. I give them credit. I wouldn't put up with "guests" abuse.

Not a lot of rides for people who don't like roller coasters! The baby section and the roller coaster section is heat but for those in between it's super limited

This review is for something that happened back in October but when I attempted to review it before, my entire review was "lost". When we got there it was around 4 pm. The lines were hectic to begin with. We have season passes but Terror Trail was not included (which is ridiculous for the price you pay) so we needed... More
