"Not too good"
October 2020
I don’t think it was worth it. The ride was breaking down constantly the prices for food and drinks were absolutely ridiculous $11 for a draft 12 ounce beer! None of the cashiers have any idea what to do with a members pass. Overall not very happy.

"Really nice day!"
August 2019
This was my first time ever going to a six flags and I loved it! It was a lot of fun and it had amazing roller coasters! The only thing I didn’t love was that they would shut all the rides down if it even looked like it might start raining, which was quite a few times throughout the day. Tripster was really easy to use, offered us a great deal, and worked the same as any other ticket.
