Great winter lights show. Everybody knows about the rest. Seems highly understaffed during peak periods in the winter (hence downgrade one star) and rides running at reduced capacity (hence increase in wait times).

Holiday in the Park was absolutely beautiful. Six Flags did an awesome job decorating this year. Thanks to all of the workers for braving the cold so that the visitors could have a great time.

We went last night with our 5 year old daughter. Absolutely loved it!! Decorations and lights were amazing! Holiday characters walking around, line lengths were not to bad. Such a cute idea!! Hope they do this every year!!

We visited on Black Friday arriving at 2 and stayed until 8. (The park was open from 2-9 that day.) It was the first "annual" offering at this park; they may do it at other parks they own in other states. The holiday decorations were...More

What we thought would be a silly idea going to six flags in November turned to be an amazing experience! Coming with a season pass, we saw no harm in coming, but I’d pay for a day ticket for this! It’s also worth noting that...More

There were only two major roller coasters open. The rest of the roller coasters were closed. Thought it being November thought there would be short lines due to the weather, but since so many rides were closed lines were still very long. Would definitely not...More

The Fright Fest is an upgrade for all merchants from my understanding. You could call to see if there is a way to combine passes or if there are options but I am pretty sure the houses are a separate cost.
