We've visited and thoroughly enjoyed The Great Escape for years. We live about 45 minutes away and its always been a great getaway but the last visit proved to be disappointing. Everything just felt unclean, including the remnants of hair washed up near the rides....More

When you only have three adult water rides and two are closed, it's not a good sign. I've gone to a few water parks and I found this to be small and mainly for small children, not my teen. We did enjoy the wave ride...More

I prefer driving 3h to go to this park instead of going to the closer park 1h away from my place. staff is friendlier and rides don't take 1h to jump on with long lineups in blazing heat.

I'm pretty sure that you are not able to do this. I really don't think 6-Flags would want to sell "life time refills"!!!
