Directions

Getting to 89 Six Flags Dr in Queenbury is a beautiful drive!

From Albany, take I-87 N to exit 20. Travel south on Rt. 9, then the park is on the right! It's about 210 miles from NYC and 220 miles from Boston.

Where are we going today?

Are you ready to take the great escape…because Six Flags certainly is! Six Flags Great Escape is a super fun place to head with kids of ANY age! There are family thrills, little kid spills and rides only for the very brave!

For those brave little ones over 40” you can challenge yourselves to the THRILL rides! Raft down a 132 foot tunnel, or get up to amazing speeds on the first looping coaster that Great Escapes ever had!  Plummet 17 stories through the air (at amazing speeds of 60mph) or freefall down a 19 storey tower. How crazy is that!?

Family fun is what Six Flag Great Escape is all about, so its only fitting they have an amazing collection of family friendly rides for the whole family to enjoy.

On your marks…get set…it’s only the Balloon Race, where you can take in the amazing view of the park from your very own hot air balloon! Get blown away by the twirling winds of the very fun indoor blizzard, or race through the woods of Ghost Town in a very exciting mine car adventure.

And yes, those little ones will be just fine with Six Flags Great Escape’s kiddie rides! The Grand Carousel can let them step back in time with that old classic, they can enjoy a fun ski-lift style gondola ride,  or visit Storytown on their very own train – choo choo!

Need to cool off? Good thing there are plenty of water activities for you as part of Splash Water Kingdom.  River adventures, splash wave pools, tube slides, and plenty of safe, shallow play will give kids of all ages something to splash about.

Six Flags Great Escape is waiting for you!

    The Great Escape is a great place to cool off and have fun. The thing I don't like about it is that there's no actual trill rides they don't have any tall and scary rollercoaster. And there new ride extreme super nova its a good ride but doesn't even go in loops. The Great Escape is not a place for trill seakers but is still a great place to cool off and have fun.

    Such a let down. Overpriced everything. Lines were so long at amusement rides and waterpark rides. Was there for about 5-6 hours went on 3 rides. The frustration of waiting just made me say the hell with it. Maybe only letting a certain number of people in the park per day would help with that, IDK. I'd prefer Six Flags LaRonde outside of Montreal. Scenery is much better up north anyway.

    We had a great time! Our 7 year olds could go on all the rides. Highly recommended to families with kids!

    I'm not a huge fan of roller coasters, but there are so many other attractions here that it will make up for it. Splashwater Kingdom is a blast and on a hot summer's day, there is nothing better (short from a dip in Lake George). The food is typical with nothing really standing out. All-in-all it's a fun place to spend the day!

    Good amusement park. Things to do for all ages. Fright fest is a must, nothing like a zombie with a chainsaw sneeking up on you to give you a fright. Food and parking is to expensive. Worth getting the season pass and dinining plan if you visit at least four times. There public relations could be better. I have been going here for years and will continue to do so.
