One of the greatest amusement parks in the nation. Awesome roller coasters! And if you go on the right days they have fireworks at night! I loved this place as a kid and still love it 40 years later!

The park had some fun rides. But the day was dulled by the excessive prices of food and how dirty the park was. I don't regret going but I won't be coming back

If you are used to your typical amusement park (Cedar Point, Kings Island, Other Six Flags), then you won't be surprised with this park. Parking is expensive, tickets are expensive and food is expensive. Shop around for deals for this park. Often they run coke/pepsi...More
