    Season pass is only about $20 more then a single day admission, $50 for a parking pass for the year instead of a $20 per day (credit goes towards the parking pass too for that initial day)

    I went to great american yesterday. It was a blasted, got all the roller coasters except Iron wolf and the new one little dipper from kiddie land. We don't like Iron wolf cause it bounces our heads

    Have children measured at Guest Relations when you arrive. They will receive a height wristband which they can show to the ride operator instead of having to be measured at each ride.

    It was way too commercial (advertisements everywhere!!) and I felt like the park looked old and outdated. I had a much better experience at Busch Gardens and Islands of Adventure in Florida.

    The V2 was nuts! Save that ride for last though, because the rest of the rides won't compare.
