This is an older park and it shows. You can tell that they are not reinvesting in the upkeep. They may have added a new roller coaster but they don't even do basic maintenance on the bathrooms. Granted I know this is not Disney or...More

So Darien Lake in general is pretty decent for the amount of rides and pricing for a typical amusement park - in general they are cheaper than average. They do have about 10 solid rollercoasters, so if you like them, they have MORE than the...More

A few things to know before you go: The crowds are raucous; I've never been without seeing at least one fight and a plethora or drunken dis-orderlies. Both you and your vehicle will be in need of a bath afterwards. The in and out is...More

Nice average Amusement Park. I would have given this 3 stars but we end at 2 due to Grizzly Run. Grizzle Run is a so called wet ride. Believe me, you get soaking wet. I did not see any people getting off this attraction smiling....More
