Some lines can be long. That is when we just jump to something else! The park is very clean. There is always someone close by if you need anything.

What is the admission price for blind handicapped person that can not ride rides? She wants to go to feel part of the fun. And do you have wheelchairs to rent if needed and how much?

I'm pretty sure that you are not able to do this. I really don't think 6-Flags would want to sell "life time refills"!!!
Can anyone tell me the current price of the daredevil dive attraction? Thank you
