    get the gold membership you receive free season parking. Also good to get is the season dinner plan it's worth it. Every time you visit the park you get lunch and dinner.

    Families - invest in the refillable drink cups. Note that note every station has the same drinks (example, only some carry Powerade). Buy a pizza and two breadstick orders for lunch (~$24) @ Primos.

    Buy the drink bottles at the main gate and drink all day for free with the wrist band! Best deal. Go to the Alpine House for great food with sizes worth your money!

    Invest in the Season Dining Pass if you have a Season Pass already. The drinks + one whole day of meals alone makes up for it, especially if you get it on sale. We got it when it was $85. Share b/t 2.

    Love this place! Rides are great! Foods expensive though! Stay away from the pizza. An employee had recommended the chicken fingers as the only thing to eat there. That's all we get now!

    Get the $13 unlimited refill reusable six flags cup. Totally worth it in this heat. Only bought one for the whole family because we can refill as many times as we want.

    Nice clean park, very short wait for all the rides, even the premier such as the comet, 10 minutes or less. Enjoyable park for everyone. RIDE THE COMET AND ENJOY!!!!

    A great little park, beautiful summer climate and great towns on both sides, Queensbury and Lake George.

    Come only if you have a small kid. I am too old to even stand in the queue. If there's no one waiting, try to ask the staff to pause the Ferris wheel for you and take pictures at the top.

    Bring your Russian translation manual or don't plan in communicating with park staff - none are American, Stalin would be proud!

    The food is INSANELY priced and totally not worth it. Pack a picnic lunch and take a break halfway through your day, you'll save a ton of $$ and still have fun!

    coaster selection is disappointing and the park layout is backwards. basically if you want a water park and places to shop, then this is the place for you. not for the avid coaster rider.

    It was my first time there since it was StoryTown which was decades ago. I have to say I was not impressed and felt the outside services such as food and drinks was below average and very expensive.

    Not a particularly vegan friendly park. Don't expect to find soy milk anywhere... supposedly there's a veggie burger available but I didn't have an opportunity to seek it out or check the ingredients.

    Not much to do here. Only three roller coasters. For a six flags they need to get it together or lower the price, not worth $55. Darien Lake is a lot better.

    This place could use management help....people here work slower than McDonald's....lines take forever for everything...from rides to food lines. Driving me nuts.

    The food here is OBSCENELY expensive. Avoid at all costs and just eat before/after you go (if you have a strong stomach!)
