We had a group of 4 stay in Tier 1 tent camping for 3 days & 2 nights, Thurs - Sat. Everything was easy to access, staff were all professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Rides, grounds, camp area, washrooms, and showers were all clean and well maintained. When someone made a mess in one bathroom stall while I was there, staff detected it and cleaned it up quickly. Food is plentiful, and unlike some other parks they don't gouge on price. It would still be cheaper to have meals in your camp area; but eating in the various restaurants and kiosks is NOT a rip off. I found it usually within a couple dollars of normal fast food pricing. SIt-down restaurants have good service and sizable portions. Crowds and lines were larger on Saturday, as anyone would expect. Hitting rides on a weekday found waits of only a few minutes at most rides. Weekday evening had some rides wide open with no wait. Each night ended with an excellent laser light show. Security presence is pervasive but unobtrusive 24hrs a day. After three very active days, we still never rode everything, saw more than one show, or experienced everything there is to see and do. We need more time! All considered, the four of us have unanimously decided to get season passes next year, and bring others with us as well. Thanks for a fun and enjoyable time Darien Lake!!
