Great park for children and adults to visit. Purchasing a seasons pass is the best way to go because if you go at least 2 times it pays for itself. If you live in the area I suggest purchasing the dining plan.

The park was clean and all the employees were very friendly! We always have a day full of laughter and stories. The season pass is a great value especially now that parking was included. The food is quite costly, but you can bring food and have a picnic at your car

This is clean, friendly amusement park for guests of all ages. Be prepared to open your pocketbook, as it is not a cheap place. Parking, admission, food, souvenirs and some rides are all costly. If that is not an issue, your experience will be very nice. You will want to bring your camera to capture family experiences. There are water rides and a water park, so be prepared if you need to dry off. Don't carry a lot of things because you won't be able to carry them on many rides and you'll be tired of carrying them all day anyhow. There are lockers for a fee, and free storage spots.

We drive over two hours each way, plus the usual hour+ wait through Chicago to get there but we really do enjoy going. The park is clean and safe enough the older kids can roam around a bit without being attached. The staff is always friendly and helpful, even when you loose a cell phone in the bathroom. The meal plan is the best because you spend a fraction of what it would cost each time you eat, and the benefits of the season passes are good, especially when you get the free parking added. It's well worth it. There are plenty of rides for everyone. The only downside is at freight fest when it is extremely crowded and some other times like opening day, which we went to the first time this year and the pass processing, food, and ride lines were all over an hour - it only took minutes to get in the park though and parking lines were not as bad as we have seen before. I love this park and we usually take a couple of the kids friends each time we go.

Get there at least one hour early before gates open for parking lot. Don't have to wait long to get in line for park opening. Think positive and have a great time at Six Flags..
