“Average theme park. Not the best not the worst”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This place is good. It isn't the best theme park I have been to (that would go to Bush Gardens Virgina with Hershey coming in as a close second). If I was going for the day and spending $65 on a pass, I would be disappointed but having a season ticket for $70 makes the park well worth the spend.

The lines can be long and everything else you do will cost you a decent amount of money (food, games, premium rides) but overall it is a good day with the family if you have the season pass.

Although the lines can be long, the coasts are good. There is a good selection and they are all well maintained.

“Great park!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

There are tons of top notch thrill rides here. Buy the platinum flashpass, especially if it's a hot and crowded day. It's worth every penny!

“Lines”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

It's a great place for roller-coaster rides and the shows were enjoyable. However, during the high season, the lines were extremely long for a two minute ride.

“Great Place To Go!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

My 13 year old daughter and her friebds always have a great time everytime they go to Six Flags! I feel secure and safe while they are there and the park is always very clean.

“Roller Coaster heaven”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I was staying with friends in New York last year 2012, visiting from Australia, and we drove down for the day. Fantastic variety of rides and the biggest buzz - riding the tallest coaster in the world Kingda Ka. If you can afford $30 extra bucks get a Flash Pass to get on the rides quick, you sure get your money's worth of rides.
