  • Very fun. Good rides. Food. Not dangerous. A very safe trusting place. It is a good place to go so why not come and stay all day it will be worth your while I came and spend my entire day so don't hesitate and come down or up depending on where you live the kids will have a great time and so will you. It's adventurous and scary but you will make some very good memories you won't forget. Me personally I didn't get to ride on very many rides but watching my children have the best times was enough for me. Just seeing their smiling faces.
  • I love six flags so much so many fun memories with my friends and family! I have ridden all the rides and love each of them more than the other can't wait for it to open again and ride Max force!♥️
  • Do I even need a reason? This place is awesome. The rollercoasters and other assorted rides are safe and fun, which is proved by the fact that I did not die. Nice staff, very clean, and a great place to go on a summer day.
  • The place is fun for all ages but try canceling their membership and you will be paying two more payments after canceling. It IS in the contract just be aware that it won't be that easy to cancel ONLY on the web site and it is HARD to find how to cancel it. Chat reps aren't too helpful so good luck. If I did not have this experience I would probably gave it a 4 due to this place being uncontrolled as how many people they take. It feels like sardines in the can there most of the time. You want to get on some rides, get there early.
  • Had an amazing time! I try and go a few times a year because it’s such a great time. I’ve never had a bad time there. They are always trying to improve the park every year by upgrading rides and or always adding plans to new ones.
