    Hurricane Harbor is an extra $8 onto your ticket now, but the price of a regular ticket can get quite cheap with good deals.

    They have integrated street performers along the walkways. It's a nice touch. If you need to let that cotton candy or funnel cake digest. They help pass the time.

    All good except..,They should not have us pay extra for the water park! We already pay an arm and leg to get in, then charge extra for water park area! Tisk, tisk..

    Great place. Love the raging bull. The Chinese place they opened sucks. Don't buy food from six flags. Overpriced junk

    Six Flags as a business is a rip off if you're only going for one day, especially when you get rained out! Goliath was worth the wait, though.

    The concession stands & food courts take forever to take your order and take another 5-10 mins to serve it. That's the only con. I understand that it's packed, but when you have 10 people working, no.

    You may have to wait hours per ride on a normal ticket. I would suggest going for a gold pass. You bring your wait time per ride to just 5 minutes.
