DC Super Friends was recently revamped this year and we had a day full of family fun. This area is perfect for smaller kids. I really like having a separate area for smaller kids exclusively. Be sure to find out live stage show performance schedule for a great show experience.

Six Flags, you score a zero in customer service, and in providing alternative options in your group meal plans.
My daughters attended Six Flags over Georgia on a school trip, lunch was to be provided at the park, a lunch we paid for as part of our group fee.
When lunch came, it was all you can eat chicken, burgers, and hotdogs. There was nothing at all my daughters (one vegetarian, one vegan) could eat.
They brought this to the attention of one of the chaperone's and she tried to advocate for my daughters, requesting salads for them and one other vegetarian child. The food service person gave her a hard time at first, but finally relented bu giving each of the children who could not eat meat one salad. The salad dressing provided was not vegan, so my vegan daughter had to eat a salad with no dressing. That was their only meal while at the park.
The other children ate their fill of chicken burgers, and hotdogs, why does Six Flags provide NO alternative meals for people with alternative diets? My daughters did not suddenly decide they didn't want the standard Six Flags meal, they have been vegetarian for approximately 10 years, our entire family is vegetarian.
The chaperone who tried to advocate for my daughters was also the person who booked the trip on behalf of the school band, there will likely be no more band trips to Six Flags; and our family will certainly never visit a Six Flags park.
I know not how to win souvenirs in the ride section let alone the weight challenge tent/game.I went there a very long time ago and bought a tape of recorded karoke music and tried to make people laugh later on the group bus and did too be a b-ball player but not softball(a first baseman)and never traveled to Georgia only through, when gas was fifty five cents a gallon and i had vivid imaginations.

I doubt if my husband and I will ever go back after this season ends. He's been a season pass holder for 12 years, and I've been one for five years. Last year we left work early on a Friday night to ride for a couple of hours, but once we arrived, we were told the park was closed for Employee/Family night. This wasn't advertised on their schedule, and they didn't send us any emails about this. Yes, they do actually send out mass emails for other things, so I don't think this was too much to ask. Yesterday we showed up at 9:15 for the early entry only to wait in line for an hour. Once they opened the park, they stopped us at the first hill and told us early entry had been cancelled b/c of the storms the night before. We understood that part, but why couldn't they have told us that when we parked or when we asked if the line was for early entry??? There is absolutely no communication among the staff.
We travel 2x yearly to Cedar Point and King's Island in Ohio and have MUCH better experiences. The wait in lines are not nearly as long, the staff clearly has fun and enjoys being there, and the food/souvenirs are much better priced.
I called yesterday to speak with a Customer Relations supervisor, and have yet to get a phone call back. Another example of poor communication and management. Other than the rides themselves, there aren't many good things to say about this park. If you are a season pass holder and expect to have any additional benefits, forget it. The lines are soooooo long (they have no single-rider lines), the food is extremely over priced, and they do nothing to accomodate the locals/pass holders. Yes, they have some great rides, but that's the only plus to this park.
Will we give our $ to Six Flags anymore? Absolutely not! I'd rather drive all the way to Ohio to experience the best theme parks, rides, and employees!
Six Flags is so overpriced. $50 per person + $15 for parking. Food is expensive and of poor quality (The "deal" while we were there was $49 for a family pack that included 12 chicken fingers, 2.5 lbs of fries, and 4 drinks....really?!?) Also expect to pay additional fees for some attractions. We were there for frightfest. The haunted house was $12 per person after 6 PM. "The Last Ride", a simulator in which you lay in a coffin for less than 2 mins, was $5. $12 for a refillable drink cup (refills free the day you buy it, $1 per refill thereafter).
Not much to do here. Waits for the good coasters are 60 min to 3 hrs, so you pretty much waste your day in line. Of course you can purchase a fast pass for $30 to $87 per person. There aren't enough non-coaster rides. Just bumper cars (which we waiting an hour for), the monster mansion, the train, mine ride, sky buckets, and swings. I was even forced to give up my seat on the mine ride after waiting 45 mins because a small child sat in front of me and the employee did not feel the bar was lowered far enough for him. Safety is important, but an effort should have been made to switch our seats with someone smaller or to have me stand to the side for the next train.
I also expected alot more for frightfest. The "spooks" wandering around the park were pretty tame and I'm pretty convinced they pay young girls to run around screaming to try to drum up interest.
All in all, I can think I can find better ways to entertain two people in Atl for $100+.

I went to ride thunder River, after being in line for about an hour under the sun in the heat they shut down the ride stating that it might take 15 to 60 minutes to restart. We had the option to wait in line so I decide to leave my party at the line while I went to the rest room. By the time I came back I was trying to get back with my party but someone called security acusing me of trying to jump the line. I have never been so ridiculed in my life. Aperently if you leave you cant go back in. Places like Disney and Universal Studios will let you go out and come back in, no big deal. The service is horrible at Six Flags. Six Flags IS A NIGHTMARE!!!!! When I went to Guest relation all I got back was a stupid apology and one pass to skip a line for just one ride. I think they need to do something about the fact that most of the lines are under the sun and it is very HOT and they expect people to wait for so long without steping out to the restroom.

I took my six year old son to six flags today and I wish we would have stayed home instead! From I-20 just outside the park, it took over 1 1/2 hours to get into the park. Oh yeah, it cost me $15 to park. Thankfully, I printed online tickets otherwise I would have waited another hour to purchase tickets at the gate. Once inside the park, all roller coasters were between a 60 and 90+ minute wait. Are you kidding?
Just before the lunch rush hit, we got in a relatively short line to order lunch - 30 minutes later we finally got our food at the cost of $14.00 (one hamburger, fries and drink).
We decided to stay away from any ride with a wait time of 20+ minutes. I think he rode 7 kiddie rides before we decided to call it a day at 3:30 p.m. There was really no use in staying any longer.
To wrap it up, we had a hard time of finding the exit gate. I asked one of the security guards and he suggested we get into the exit line to have our hand stamped so that we could return later in the day. What a way to end the day.

We came to fright fest with our kids hoping to have a great Halloween. 90% of the employees we encountered were friendly, helpful, and very polite. When we left to go home we found our car had been broken into...which security informed us was a common occurrence in the parking lot.
After paying 15.00 to park, and seeing 10 cops/security guards standing around talking to each other and doing nothing at the gates exiting the park? But they know car theft/damage is a recurring problem? No wonder all the criminals have such an easy time stealing from visitors. Don""t waste your money just to get robbed!!!!
