Second smallest theme park I've been to

As the title says this is a small theme park. If it wasn't in a destination area I can't see how it would be a Six Flags and stay open. Thank God I'm a Gold Season Pass member... read more

Some lines can be long. That is when we just jump to something else! The park is very clean. There is always someone close by if you need anything.

This place isn't big when compared to some of the other Six Flags parks but make no mistake, it does't compromise on the fun and thrills to be had. There are a wide variety of rides. Everything from full scale looping coasters to gentle kiddie rides for the little ones. Plenty of food and refreshments stands are scattered throughout the... More

We went the weekend before Memorial Day, so the water park, shows and a lot of the shops and stands were closed (We didn't pay full summer price, so it was ok) There were a lot of new employees that were being trained, and everyone was very nice. As I was on line for the Comet, a girl had lost... More

Well maintained Six Flags property, kids section is especially cute and well themed. Coaster fans will get a kick out of some oldies here. We only found out about the water park on our second visit (it is part of the admission price and a tad removed from the main area). Fun, varied food options and some surprisingly good prizes...

Let me preface this by saying we are travel bloggers and so we have seen too many water parks and many theme hotels and resorts .that being said we were invited to this park because we are writing an article on travel with tweens and were told that this was a good location. In comparison to the very nearby Massachusetts... More

For $400 a night and 4 1/2stars you would think it would be updated and clean. Nope! Water park small

We love how this park is great for young kids. The mothers room is one of the nicest for nursing moms. My husband and I used to go there before kids and now it is even better with kids.
