“My favorite forever”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Great fun, great concerts, great shopping, great EVERYTHING!! Food, games, this place is where I go to have my favorite type of fun I LOVE THE RIDES SO MUCH!! And the water park! THIS IS THE BEST AMUSEMENT PARK EVER I CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK!! LOVE YOU DARIEN LAKE!! Also, so glad it's not a Six Flags park anymore, I didn't care for everything being Looney-Toon themed the few years it was Six Flags, it didn't feel like the place I know and love :)

“Don't get hurt at park”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Visited park in July 2013 , stayed at campground and was a great experience. Problem was my wife was hurt tripping on a curb in the park and breaking four ribs, medical personal was slow in response and not very coordinated with equipment problems and did more complaining about the other shift problems than helping my wife. Luckily there was a nurse that was visiting the park that came and helped. Finally loaded my wife into ambulance to go to hospital. Being on Medicare they didn't cover all of the Ambulance charges and when I talked to the park was told the curb was there a long time and they won't cover any Medical bills. Very disappointed with their response.
We live to far away to look into any legal avenues. Just a warning when visiting..

“Family friendly”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Smaller than Disney but a whole mess of fum. Many rides, good food and not and arm and leg to visit. Camp ground across a large pond. Neat and clean and safe. Nice hotel. The best is a concert venue, so you can play in the park and see a concert at night. They have had many big named acts play there DMB, Phish, to many to name Some lines but not bad and better behaved than all the Florida parks.

“Best fun in Western New York”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

My sons and I have had season tickets for a few years now and visit about 10 times a year. Plenty of roller coasters for every taste. Very easy to get into and out with plenty of parking. The water park is also great.

“Cheap Fun. Perfect for Kids 48"+”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

My kids loved this park. There were very light crowds, no waits, and the rides were all open. If you stay at the campground or lodge the price of admission is awesome. We ate at our campsite so I'm not sure how the food was. The park has big rides and small rides and all the ones in between.
