  • I love this place! Sure the prices are high but I have a season pass with the food pass (it's an awesome deal) Sure the lines are long but it is truly worth the wait! The rides are awesome! My kids love it there. I take my little one to the kid area and the older one goes off with friends to the big rides. We go there every year it's a blast!
  • Great, clean park. There are a lot of rides, and a few of those are really awesome. I have the season pass with free parking and dining, which is a really good deal if you get it during a sale. Since I have a pass, I don't get too frustrated when there are long lines. As long as you can plan ahead and know when the busiest times are, you should be fine. For example, don't try to go on the latest and greatest ride at 3:00 on a Saturday, or the line is almost guaranteed to be long. Weekdays in the Summer are usually pretty tame when it comes to crowds, but Fridays and Saturdays are very crowded, especially in July. Like I said, I have the dining pass. I would never buy food here if I didn't, as they charge more than you would have to pay if you drove a block away to eat. The Demon, Batman, and Giant Drop never have lines, so go there if you can't get on anything else.
  • Weather was fantastic. Staff was very nice throughout park. Lines were reasonable. The problem is we just left a ride because of some kind of interruption. Once a day, no big deal. This is our third time. Also, someone in management should be introduced to Sherwin Williams. Paint pealing, paint missing, just looks like lack of attention to details or just cheap. If they don't pay attention to what we can obviously see, what about what we can't see. Further, the basketball net on the three point shot game look like it was from two seasons ago. We paid a lot of money for admission, it is disappointing because it could have been a better experience.
  • The Rides plus the experience is a very good time to bring friends and family. Overall it's a very fun time but the problem I have is the food lines are unbelievable, plus the prices it's way to much money. Had to wait in line for a very long time while only 2 people working at that stand. Food needs to be worked on, but besides that it's a very fun experience with great rides.
  • The rides are extremely fun and the prices are very reasonable plus you get a full day of fun for a low price. The rides are very fun some are scary like Batman and The Joker while others are amazing and offer a great view. There is even rides for little kids.
