The American Eagle and Batman rides are really fun, and there are a good many rides that were great for pre-teens. Nice park layout, and easy to stay engaged for the day and well into the night.

Had a Blast at 6 Flags. What made the day completely worth it was THE FLASH Pass Platinum. With THE FLASH Pass Platinum, the longest wait in line for our group (of 2 people) was about 14 minutes. Also, THE FLASH Pass Platinum rides would...More

I've been a season ticket holder for many years along with my family. This year 2015 has been a disaster there. Long lines are expected but every visit at least one ride shuts down while waiting an hour plus. I know things happen but this...More

I know it is an amusement park but the food at Great America is to expensive. I told my grandchildren no more Great America! I can put a fork in it and I am done.

We were season pass holders in previous years but didn't renew them for 2013 & 2014 because the park was headed down hill (dirty, people dressed inappropriately, rude or apathetic employees). We took a chance this year and I'm happy we did. The park is...More

I remember seeing it awhile ago. This year's offer wasn't as great as the year before, so that was another reason I didn't bother to buy them.
