  • Our highschool went to six flags for a fun trip in May. Was my first time ever going and will likely be my last. The park wasn't bad but just wasn't all that great either. Was decently kept but the st...  more »

  • Rides are great! We went on a Wednesday and the lines weren't too long... except to eat lunch. We waited in line for 30+ minutes to order. When you're waiting with hungry little kids, this is not cool. My aunt, who comes to Six Flags regularly, said this is an ongoing problem. A lot could be done to fix that with some better training and more kitchen workers. Aside from that we had a wonderful visit! Our youngest child, a 4 year old, was just over 42 inches and was able to go on a ton of rides.
  • Local theme park. Fun for kids and adults. Fun events for Halloween and Christmas. Best value is a season pass or membership if you intend to visit more than one time in a calendar year. Food prices are a bit high on most things, but water to stay cool is free and if you have a refillable cup you can bring it.
  • Loads of fun during the summer when the weather is not too hot. Very large theme park with amazing rides, arcades, shows and plenty of excitement for children, teens and adults to enjoy. Prices for everything, including entry fees are pretty ridiculously high, and food is typical fast food and very overpriced. There's a few restaurants, which are also very pricey and with average food. Eat before you go, and bring a backpack with drinks and snacks if you can. Lockers are expensive but useful if you want to enjoy yourself and not carry everything around. Weekends are insanely crowded with extremely long lines, so plan ahead and go early during the week for the best stress free experience. As can be expected from theme parks, people from all walks of life will be here. Crazy loud kids with little to no supervision, creepy men and less desirables and low class people, so keep your eyes on your children and valuables at all times. Save a good amount of money beforehand, get a Flash Pass and Season Tickets. You get discounted drinks, free entry all season long and get to skip the long lines. If you plan well in advance and follow these tips, you can be assured a good time and excellent summer memories.
  • So Six Flags is just awesome but my review is for those with kids and trying to be on a budget--bring your own lunch, which I saw a lot of people do when we went. We took our lunch and when we took a break from our fun, we came out of the park and ate in the nearby park. We caught the "tram" to our location, ate and then caught the tram back. Nothing major to it. It's also good to know where the restrooms are so you when you have really young kids because as we all know, when they need to go, there is not much time. But otherwise, the rides are awesome. We did a whole bunch of rides and it was just all good. The best times to go is when school is still in session because the lines are a lot smaller. But it means you need to take your child(ren) out of school :) Here's a little funny thing I noticed, of all the rides, my kids loved the little electric cars the most. It's either they really did love it or they were just so tired and it was a good place to rest their feet. Either way, they enjoyed it and we did that ride multiple times--granted the lines weren't too long for it either.
  • One of the better six flags I've been to so far. Definitely go on a weekday to prevent having to wait in line for a long time (we went on a Friday). We were able to get all the rides knocked out before dinner time, even after getting a pretty long lunch break. Bring a friend free was definitely nice as a season pass holder and we also got to go in an hour early to get on popular rides before more people showed up. You can ask for a water cup and every vendor will happily give you ice cold water for free, so no need to spend money on drinks unless you want to carry a lot of it with you. Get the red cup if you're going to drink flavored refreshments all day. Also, my friend brought a pocket knife on accident... Instead of having to go back to the car to leave it, the park security kept it in a safe container and gave him a voucher to pick it up on the way out. I've never seen that done at any other six flags. I also noticed that most, if not all rides had a bin/basket or a small pouch in the car itself to store your items in. In comparison, Six Flags Georgia makes you use their lockers which you have to pay for to go on rides... Kudos for Texas. Overall the park was kept clean and most of the employees were very friendly. It was in the mid to upper 90F, so it was definitely not pleasant while waiting in line.... But ice cold water and relatively quick queue made it less tiring throughout the day. What would make this park even better is to install more mist fans in the queue line to make it less miserable while waiting to get on the ride.
