My husband and I took our grandchildren (8 & 5) for a day trip and I got the all inclusive tickets. Not a good move.. Fast pass didn't apply to any rides they liked and the dining tickets didn't work for the food they wanted!...More

Fantastic fun park. You get to meet the Peanuts gang here. My favorite coaster is the Intimidator, dedicated to Dale Earnhardt.
