What is there to do?

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.
