  • This isn't the best theme park (it's kind of small and old) but it's a fun way to spend a day. It has some unique coasters like Bat Wing and Apocalypse and so far this season, wait times haven't been ...  more »

  • Great experience, didn't have to wait long in any lines. Most of the staff was polite. Only bad part was the food prices. $30 for 3 small slices of pizza. $5 bottle waters. But I guess that's typical of any amusement park. I suggest you bring your own food.
  • Rides are good. Lunch is great for its price if you have a season pass. The time it takes to enter is very long especially in a hot day. They need additional gait and staff in circumstances when guests number is big
  • It was the worst entertainment experience of my life. Upon entering the park, I witnessed people fighting. I have a Season Pass and I was supposed to receive lunch, dinner and a snack. The person at the gate tried to scan my badge but it didn't work, so the girl at the snack stand wanted me to go back to the front gate to have my pass scanned, just to get my snack. I waited in line for one hour to hear the counter help tell me I could not get a snack because my Season Pass didn't work. Then I waited in line for another hour to get dinner. I asked five or six Associates where a particular section of the park was and they were unable to help me, (uninformed staff). People were fighting, cursing, and arguing all over the park. My sons encountered two groups of people line jumping to get on the rides. Upon exiting the park I was unable to directly access my car because a crime scene was taped off and my family and I had to walk several feet around it. Not a good experience at all.
  • Typical amusement park with rides and games, shows and characters. Clean park and fun for the whole family. The 'Flash Pass' is a great idea, although a HUGE rip off. If you buy a 'Flash Pass', buy the cheapest one, as the wait time is the same for the most expensive, as it is for the cheapest. As long as you have a 'Flash Pass' (you will be able to bypass the main line). There really is no system set up to give priority to those pay more for a shorter wait time. I must also mention the pour staff quality. Most of the staff that I encountered acted as if they didn't want to be there and did not care about park guests. Food stands had very slow service and rude employees. Ride staff DID NOT always check restraints, neglecting job quality and frankly guest safety for speed.
  • If you're not going to pack your own food and eat it in the car , the best place to eat is the crazy horse saloon during one of the show times. It serves hot food , alcohol and snacks. It is heated or air conditioned and in doors , which is nice any time of year. The shows are super entertaining and the round tables give everyone a good seat. The bathrooms here are often the cleanest in the park. A great break in the middle of a day of rides.
