Fun place to go on rollercoasters and many other rides they offer. Food is quite expensive as well as beverages. Always fun to ride on wild thing and many other rides. Highly recommended if you're a ride lover!

Just get the Fast Lane pass and you won't have to worry about time. It was worth it for my family and we were there on an extremely slow day.
