Things to know before you goOkay, we visited Six Flags with our 6 & 4 year old for the first time today. First, PARKING is expensive at $15 per car. There is a continually running tram to and from the park, but you could easily walk it in less than 5 minutes. Next, ADMISSION - We bought the season pass. $69.99 per person for unlimited access for the year. That will pay for itself in 2 visits. You pay at the gate then you need to go into a second queue to get your actual season pass. 15 minutes or so. Next, GATE/SECURITY - No outside food or drink is allowed. I wish I knew this, as they made me throw all of the snacks & drinks I brought away. What is this, the airport? I found this extremely annoying. Then they charge you prices that are even more than Disney for food ($40 for a pizza? I'm not even kidding). So I'd advise either eating before you go or stashing snacks cleverly. You can bring water in, but that's all. Next, best to bring a stroller with little ones, but you can rent the same kind you can at Disney for $15. Next, RIDES - Lots of mega thrill rides/coasters and lots of kiddie rides (Cute rides in Wiggles World and Looney Tunes World). Not a whole lot in between. Those that are family oriented are either spinny and disorientating or ones that get you wet. But overall a wide variety. Extremely strict on height requirements, and rule heavy on the whole. DRINKS - there are clean water fountains at all restrooms. Or, you can purchase a large souvenir drink for $12.99 and then refill for free that day and then .99 the rest of the year. It's all soda though, so I'd bring water if possible.
