6 Insider Secrets for an Amazing Day at the Park
Our Six Flags insiders share their best advice on having a great visit at the park. Their tips will help you plan your visit, enjoy more rides, and stay comfortable during the day. These ideas from the pros will help you make the most of your day and ensure you have a fun experience.
1. Take a photo of your parking spot.
When you park, take a digital photo of the sign closest to your car. After a long day you may not remember where you parked. Simply scroll through the photos you’ve taken that day and find the one of the parking lot. Head straight over to that sign and avoid time wandering around looking for your car.
2. Work the park from back to front.
Our experts tell us the most efficient way to navigate the park is back to front. Many people head straight to the first attractions they see. If you skip those and make your way to the back of the park first, then you’ll beat the rush later in the day. With this stellar planning you’ll be able to hit up more rides! At the end of the day you’ll also be near the front gate when it’s time to go home.
3. Bring a waterproof bag for your belongings.
Don’t lug around a heavy backpack during your trip and bring only the necessities for the day. Put your cell phone, money, and any important items in a clear plastic bag. It will be easier to scan your belongings when you enter the front gate and easier to carry with you because you won’t have extra loose items. As a bonus, if you decide to cool off on water rides, the waterproof bag will keep all your personal items dry.
4. If you have kids, put your contact information in their pocket.
When visiting the park with young children, it’s important to plan ahead. Write your contact information on an index card and put it in their pocket in case you get separated. When you arrive, point out how our employees are dressed and tell your kids to find one of our staff for help if they are lost. Also, pick an easy-to-find meeting spot for your party to check in during the day.
5. Eat at non-traditional dining hours
Taking a few moments to re-energize will help you stay refreshed so you can tackle more rides. Plan your schedule in order to spend less time waiting for meals. Eat lunch and dinner a little earlier or later than the “normal” time. A little planning allows you to ride while everyone else is eating. Then, when you’re ready to eat, you’ll miss the mealtime rush and save time!
6. Buy your tickets online
Plan ahead for your visit by reviewing our website to map out your day. The best ticket deals are online, and you'll save both time and money at the park.
