If you get the discount season pass this is a great park if you're local. Short drive from DC area with fun and interesting rides. Haven't had a problem with the ride operators, they all have seemed very nice. Definitely worth the season pass which grows in value in the summer when the water park opens.
Bought my daughter season pass and decided to come see the Christmas lights. They were awesome. They alone are worth the trip. Much of the rest of the park was closed so a little disappointing. They had many outdoor fire areas set up to take off the chill. In addition to the lights and fires, they also had snow falling as you came in and pine scents were a really nice touch. If you come for the rides, don't expect many of the larger ones to be open, at least after dark.
It was decent, I am used to parks that are bigger and have a lot more to offer on the west coast so there wasn't enough variety for the price for me. Part of that might have been because I visited during the holiday season when they have limited hours and rides anyways. The rides they do have are fun--but many of them (mostly the roller coasters) are quite jerky so beware if you have neck/back problems or don't like that kind of thing. Additionally, I would only go if you can get a discount--it's not worth the full 70 dollars for their holiday tickets given they don't have as much to offer--fortunately we got ours for about half price (just a little over).
Been going here for some time now. The park has good rides, for both young and adult. There is much to do and could easily spend an entire day here with stuff still left over. I am knocking a star down due to it's cleanliness. Oh, and yellow jackets. They are EVERYWHERE. It's like they staged an assault on the park and won. Have a sweet drink in your hand, better watch out because they will fly and crawl right into your straw.
If you have the annual membership and food pass you will enjoy countless days of entertainment and food throughout the year. Service is not efficient, however. Sometimes rude and always exceptionally slow. The rides are amazing and the lines there are not long - ever.
