We bought the season pass this year, and went to there during spring break, not many people that is okay, but some attractions are not opened yet, not many rides my kids played, may be they are still young? and the staffs are not enough for selling food, always long line ( but actually not many people in the park)....

We visited for the first time this season and activated our passes. I purchased the meal plan which came with a refillable sports bottle good for all season. We got our drink and went to the Dark Knight ride. When we got there we were told that we couldn't take the bottle on the ride and would have to leave... More

We purchased season passes we were so excited to use. The wait for the rides was horrendous. My boys waited for two hours for the runaway train. The reason the rides were so long was because the flash pass riders kept riding over and over again, while everyone else just waited. Ticket prices are costly enough that we should all... More

This is our 2nd year with Season Tickets. When we went to visit the 1st time this season, on April 13 it was crazy. We are from NY but we did not rush there since they were open till 8 and we have been on all the rides many of times. When we got there at around 11. We had... More

Several rides were 'temporarily' closed including 'El toro' , 'Parachute training', 'Kingda Ka', & 'El diablo'. The website with wait times was incorrect listing wait times of 5 minutes while long one hour or more lines existed. My 4 grandchildren got on 3 rides in 5 hours. The youngest waited on line for 1 hour (wait time listed as 5... More

We took a day trip out here during our vaction to NYC. If you want to do the same, the most (only) sane option is to buy combined transport+admission tickets at the port authority bus station. Aim to arrive at the station by 8:40 AM; there should be a ticket booth marked "Six Flags", and the tickets cost ~$75 a... More

The rides are great ( when they are actually working) they break down way too much. The prices are outrageous , almost 80$ just for the amusement park when most parks have you pay less than that for water park and the amusement park ! Food is also too expensive, for one water bottle it is 4.50 !

We bought season passes this year for the first time along with the season pass meal plan. The passes are definitely a great deal but the kids are already getting sick of going there. The food also gets old after a while. We bought the 2017 passes around Oct 2016 which allowed us to go to the Fright Fest in... More
