  • Fantastic time had. Was my first time visiting and I loved it. As others have said, several rides weren’t open like the joker, and a few others but I still had an awesome day out. So many other cooler rides around. The funnel cake was epic and meeting bugs bunny was nice. I throughly enjoyed myself and would come back. Not so many people as like at Disney or universal so I don’t know if maybe cause I went on a work day Friday but I loved that. No waiting time on most rides (though the Goliath and the flight roller coasters had hectic lines) but everything else you walked right into the ride. A great day out.
  • The rides were pretty fun and overall a decent experience. Don't let the empty lines fool you, you'll be in line for hours if you don't have a "Flash Pass" it really is the pay to win system that gives people with money the most. So If you can afford it buy some of those passes, if not pass on six flags and go to kings island instead.
