  • This Six Flags is unique and very different from the Six Flags in NJ. It's cute and more child friendly for little ones than the Six Flags I am used to. I understand it wasn't always a Six Flags so it...  more »

  • Worst 6 flags experience ever, I have been to several 6 flags parks and this one is by far the worst. Save your $60 per person + the $20 parking gouge the forget to mention on their advertising. 5 total big coasters and 2 water rides does not make for a full day experience. I rode everything twice (except the one that I talk about next) and was done in 4 hours, that's after spending an hour in one of the lines only to find out it doesn't even go up side down. The park is dirty, no one emptied the trash from the day before and it smelled as such. Rides and pathways were dirty and I got there at the beginning of the day. The bathrooms were the cleanest parts of the park. I was afraid to eat here, and as I was only here for 4 hours I managed to eat outside the park (and for a lot cheaper). Save your $80+ dollars and do something around the lake more enjoyable and less risky to your health.
  • Great Escape is an annual family tradition with a nice variety of rides for children as well as teens. I love that they maintain all the story town buildings for current generations to enjoy. The park is clean and well maintained and almost always has a new attraction added annually. The one true downfall is the extremely expensive poor quality food.
  • Great for younger kids and a fun place if you are in the area, or are looking for a more secluded (surrounded by the woods) vacation than lake george and the great escape are great! Only down side is the amount of rides which I feel is not many and the lack of adult and kids in there teens thrill rides. The one they have are just outdated. Other than that a good spot to cool off and have a thrill!
  • This Place is a joke... $141.00 for a season pass... and $60.00 for parking! if it was like Disney i would be ok with it... but this park is not worth it... i used to go to this park 10 years ago... $60.00 a season pass and free parking... but now lines are very very very long... the food service is slow and 3x more expensive than on the street with 1/3 the quality. Avoid at all costs. its a joke, scam.
  • Start with the good....lines were short and security to get in was good....now the bad...way too expensive for such a small place. Alot of the park is outdated. Numerous rides were closed...food prices are high...rides were rusting...staff was nice but extremely slow in boarding....park seems to be for very young children...will not come back again without numerous upgrades.
