Not a bad park! Lines are not that crazy long , place is clean and staff is friendly. Are 5 year old and 12 year old were both entertained and so was I. Season ticket special worth buying if you would be returning.

Make a day of it! Whether a season pass holder going as a guest for bring a friend day (afforded to season pass holders) or just need something for the whole family to do- this is a fun day. Make sure to plan accordingly as it is both an amusement park and water park. There are pricey lockers to rent... More

While the park has gotten out of hand expensive with everything (don't eat here, its truly not... More

This park is a lot of fun, but it is getting very expensive to come with a family. The food is extremely expensive as well as the drinks. We spent over $80 on 2 salads and a chicken nugget lunch. The rides are still a lot of fun and the waterpark is a good way to end the day. On... More

Like many other reviewers on this site, I found the Great Escape to be a big disappointment. We stayed at the Great Escape Lodge so we received passes to the park with our stay. Glad I didn't actually pay for admission here. Many rides were closed, and the ones that were open are a bit tired. This is not a... More

With a Six Flags season pass, our family visited all the Six Flags in our area this year. Our last park day was on Labor Day at The Great Escape. There was a moderate crowd as we arrived that late morning. We've noticed that each park has slightly different rides from others. The blizzard is unique. It is a scrambler... More

Everyone in our group loved the atmosphere at Fright Fest. The "scary" animators were kind enough to stay away from our little ones and everyone had a blast!

Although we had a good time the park is so small compared to our Six Flags New England. Frightfest needed some more action, the flash mob and haunted houses were mediocore.

Went for Freight Nite & attractions weren't open at 5(when they were supposed to be opened). They sold fast passes for individual houses & allowed all of those people to go through prior to the regular line starting. The haunted houses were so not scary, very disappointed. Went with 2-16 year olds & myself & my husband-all of us were... More

The Six Flags Theme Park was Awesome, there was something for everyone to do, it is a work out walking around the park with all them hills they have, but most theme parks are. Lines move fairly quick, allowing you to move throughout the park on to the next attraction smoothly, even though it was very busy on a holiday... More
