We had an awesome time at Great Adventure yesterday. Our only complaint was that it took us an hour and a half to get through the security line before we even got into the park. It was worth the wait though because the rides were awesome. I don't like thrill rides and there were soooo many rides that I was... More

O you feel like kissing the sky in one moment and then falling fathoms in split seconds, it was pure thrill and fun. The Six flags has something for everyone. There was almost 40-50 mins wait time for every ride and we had to miss a couple of them. So try to get there early at the park opening so... More

Went for the Spring Recess and lucked out with beautiful weather and extremely short lines. The rides are thrilling and so much to choose from but the food and drinks are a rip off!! The park was pretty clean. Season passes are worth it if you go more than once

Difficult to find a/o that overall supervises. Staff was ignorant and indifferent to special needs. Most rides were a 45 minute wait despite specified accommodations. Staff extremely robotic and heartless. Calling guest relations to get through to a human being was impossible. Was hoping to buy season passes for a family of six and after today, I don't think I...

Ten Ways to Make Your Trip to Six Flags Enjoyable: 1) Know what you are getting yourself into. The appeal of Six Flags is the collection of high intensity, record-setting, award-winning thrill rides. These rides cost millions of dollars to design, operate, and maintain and, in my opinion at least, are the only good reason to go to Six Flags.... More

Good news - "Philly-Style" Cheese Steak sandwiches (beef or chicken) where Nathan's USED to be located. They offer a variety of fries. Sad news - no more quesadillas at Macho Nacho. No more chicken salad wraps or spinach salads at Fresh Express. DINING PASS is such a great deal if you plan to go to Six Flags more than 3... More

We took our children , aged 9, 11, 13, and they had a blast. They were all brave and tall enough to do the exciting rollercoasters. My husband and his friend did also enjoyed it a lot. The experience is limited for children who are not at least 54 inches/137 cm because they cannot go on the big rides. We... More

45 minute-1 hour wait for even the bumper car ride; over an hour just to clear security lines (hint:do not bring a bag); rating would have been TERRIBLE if not for credit given because it was a beautiful day in spring break week better idea: buy a share of SIX stock for about the price of one admission

Took 2.5 hours to park then 1/2 hr to go through security and then another 1/2 hr to purchase a child's ticket which you cannot buy online! Then 45 min wait for food. Decided to just leave and never even went on a single ride!!! Never going back!
