Dans le cadre de nos vacances familiales nous avons fait une tournée de parcs dattraction cet été. Nous sommes une famille de 4 et nos filles ont respectivement 15 et 9 ans. La plus jeune natteint pas encore le 54 pouces requis pour les plus gros manèges. Nous y avons passé deux jours. Un désagrément du parc est bien sûr linterdiction dapporter de la nourriture sur le site. Nous avons donc apporté notre lunch et nous avons mangé sur une table à pique-nique à lombre dun arbre près du stationnement. Si vous avez acheté la passe de saison, vous avez reçu une gourde. Vous pouvez payer pour la remplir à chaque fois, acheter une passe dune journée ou faire comme nous et la remplir seulement deau. Vous pouvez demander de remplir votre gourde deau dans tous les sites de remplissage gratuitement. Voici les manèges que nous avons fait et nos commentaires: - Desperado plunge: Communément appelé pitoune au Québec, cette attraction est amusante mais noffre quun parcours relativement droit avec une seule grande pongée. - Canyon Blaster: Belle montagne russe familiale. - Marshals Stampede Indoor Bumper Cars: Un classique, refait plusieurs fois. - Alpine Bobsled: Génial, selon ce que jai lu sur Wikipédia, il ny aurait que 3 montagnes russes de ce genre en Amérique et moins dune dizaine dans le monde. Nous lavons fait 2 fois - Comet: Une vieille montagne russe mais qui offre assez de frissons pour être classées parmi nos préférée. Refait 6 fois. - Flying Trapeze: De belles balançoires. - Grand Carousel: Un classique avec des animaux étranges. - Raging River: Il faut accepter de se faire mouiller un peu mais la descente en vaut la peine. Refait 3 fois. - Screamin Eagles: Amusant davoir le contrôle de sa balançoire. - Sky Ride: Belle vue du parc, relaxant. *** Malgré laccident arrivé dernièrement, je peux vous assurer quil est impossible de tomber de ce manège sans avoir tenté volontairement den sortir, très sécuritaire. *** - Thunder Alley: Amusant - Oakley’s Honey Swings: Bien pour les tout petit. Et du côté aquatique nous nous sommes également bien amusé. Nous aurions aimé faire le Steamin Dragon mais celui-ci était fermé lors de notre passage. Nous reviendrons assurément dans ce parc au cours des prochaines années.
It is one of the best great escape six flags park. It is not busy except on week ends and there are actual fun rides other than just roller coasters (like the new jersey one that sucked). Water park is also very nice with unlimited tube ride time. Food is great! try out the fry bucket; awesome it is. Best family rides include bump cars, red canyon roller coaster, balloon fly, train ride near the basket ball court, raging canyon tube ride, go cart roller coaster and ferris wheel. There is a chair lift as well that gives good views. Thrill rides are also on the safer side except the 65 mph swing (they make u sign a paper that they are not responsible if anything happens to u on it) and there is no crazy high rides. They include some vr roller coasters, twix coaster, log ride, 360 circle, super nova, the comet (attention it can mess up ur back way too bumpy), sasquatch and blizzard. This park has the highest family ride/thrill ride ratio and i hope it keeps like that because majority of people come with family to enjoy not to have their ass busted on some crazy roller coasters or die from a heart attack on their 400 foot free fall from drop of doom rides (found in California six flags and many more) i hope such rides never come here to this park because being a mechanical designer, such rides have a 1:100 fail ratio and these mega giants care more about money than peoples lives. Also kids have a lot of rides to enjoy including a dedicated pool and water park, mini swings, roller coaster etc. Family boat ride, Carousel, and train are my personal favs with my kid. Enjoy!!
this was not worth the money. the park is awful, the security is worse. the rides are old and for what you pay to get in there, they could update their rides and keep them safe. parking was $20 and you are so far away that the kids are exhausted before we get there. the hours on a friday are a joke. the park was filthy. the whole place stunk. we will never go back! wish we never went and wasted all that money for nothing! kids had more fun at the hotel! for the rip off price for admission we couldve stayed at the hotel an extra 2 days and had good fun in a clean environment. and did i mention their security is a joke! honestly they all act like they are these big time hardcore police officers and we are criminals. funny they can tell me to put my 5 year olds shirt on and had them watch me cause the water park closed so abruptly that i had to find a new bathroom in the park area for him to change. but, they dont say anything to the groups of kids using profanity or being mean to little kids. Open your eyes, be more observant!
Took one of my daughters to Great Escape for the day on Thursday Aug 16th, 2012. My first frustration was the lack of signs directing cars to parking if youre approaching from the south of the park. I had already paid for and printed out the parking ticket and park tickets but it did not save me any time at all. The lines to get parked and to also go through the turnstiles were unacceptably long especially since this was at peak times to get in and I saw several closed turnstiles. I saw peeling paint, trash on the ground, and moody surly staff. I waited 15 minutes during non peak times to get a steak sandwich. The locker fees were outrageous. The changing rooms were dirty. The food choices were slim and icky. The overall look of the park was that of a low class county fair. The rides were so short with staff that didnt really care if the guests were enjoying themselves or not. Obviously the management doesnt care about repeat business. I would not recommend this park in the least.
Worst 6 flags experience ever, I have been to several 6 flags parks and this one is by far the worst. Save your $60 per person + the $20 parking gouge the forget to mention on their advertising. 5 total big coasters and 2 water rides does not make for a full day experience. I rode everything twice (except the one that I talk about next) and was done in 4 hours, thats after spending an hour in one of the lines only to find out it doesnt even go up side down. The park is dirty, no one emptied the trash from the day before and it smelled as such. Rides and pathways were dirty and I got there at the beginning of the day. The bathrooms were the cleanest parts of the park. I was afraid to eat here, and as I was only here for 4 hours I managed to eat outside the park (and for a lot cheaper). Save your $80+ dollars and do something around the lake more enjoyable and less risky to your health.
The problem is we got there at 10:00am (when the park opened) and not even all the dry rides were open, the water stuff was not open either until after 11:00am+ (there were no posted hours of when the water area opens). We wandered around and watched as the Great Escape employees were straggling in after 10:15am to get to their jobs...We paid a lot of money to get in, and they were not even really open at 10:00am. Also, the prices for food and everything else are more than a family should have to pay. Our car (in the overpriced parking lot $20) was so far away...we felt like we were trapped by 6 Flags. I guess because they bank on people coming from NYC (that are used to paying a lot for everything), they feel it is ok to charge those ridiculous prices! And the rides were not even that good for the $$$. We were very displeased with our visit.
