I didn't know riding a roller coaster was evil.

I didn't say the parks, which by the way were just as fun,and a whole lot more family friendly and cheaper, before 6 flops bought these local parks and "corped" them. The takeover mentality never made one buisness better for the consumer, just the sharegods.=EVIL

Are you just mad they caught you trying to sneak in your sandwich and can of soda when the sign said you can't do this?

I know you have to work a whole hour and a quarter putting those plates customers used into the little push cart and wiping down the table for the next productive members of society to use, but be an adult and pay for that pizza.

I agree. Six Flags is a waste of money. This doesn't surprise me.

They'd be a lot more popular and make a lot more money if they did a couple of simple things: 1. An hour to wait in line for a roller coaster is ridiculous. Dont know how to fix that, but the sooner they do, the more money they'll make. 2. The food SUCKS. Cheap and inexpensive dont necessarily equal out. They could feed the crowd with better food for a fraction of the price. 3. The above authors are correct: Charging people an arm and a leg for an 8 hour day of dodging other people's punk kids who have been let loose isnt going to fly. There needs to be some kind of rule that kids between the ages of 13 and 27 must be accompanied by an adult. Yeah I meant 27. People just cant behave these days...

6 flags is my world wrote:
i visit 6 flags new jersey and mass almost 30-40 times a year, you can get good food and have fun only if u put ur mind to it. you cant solve slow lines and there are ways to preocupy urself whyll waiting in line.
Rules to have a good 6 flags time and not piss people off like me with ur ignorant comments
1) buy a season pass ( 6 flags needs the money and iv payed mine off 4 times over this year)
2) whyll waiting in line meet new people instead of rambling on about how long the lines are
3) if the lines are reported over 2.5 hours dont go on it (not pertaining to kingda-ka)
4) pick up chicks-(see number 2)
5) on hot days but those 6 flags cups- i must have gotten 15 refills and it was econmiocally smart
6) the food might be over priced but look at it this way what resuratnt isnt-if your pissed there is a miccky d's down the street
7) well 7 is a secret to get ona few rides super quick but i cant tell u (no flash pass- to expensive and no cutting for i rat them faggits out)
8) dont buy there food suffer for 12 hours, we americans are over weight it wont kill u to miss out on one meal- since im shure half you bloggers are overweight living with there moms- anyway u dont need to eat when ur having alot of fun
thats about it
the moral of the story is-
sign up for funatics for u get free stuff-
buy a season pass to get funatics- dont eat food there for its overpriced but a season pass will help u out-
drink from there water foutains fact goes to show that u can survive 3 days without water and 2 weeks with just water
--- and whoever said that statement about punk **** kids 13-27 ur right we do act liek that becuase we like to have fun, and u wish u were like us- so screw off
WELL **** this 8==========3
Have you ever attended an English class?

Use text message lazy grammar only when text messaging.

Your post was hideous and basically unreadable.

Your generation does not have the basic skills required to form a complete sentence. Capitalization, punctuation and correct spelling don't seem to exist in your world.

It doesn't matter if the point you are trying to make is correct when you write like that. The end result will always be that you made yourself look like an idiot.

I agree with all of the grammar related comments you just said.

I disagree that the entire generation you refer to is lacking in skills. True, there are a great deal of young people who pay no attention to grammar, spelling, etc... However, there are many who do. There are also many professional adults who are poorly spoken and couldn't create a coherent sentence if you wrote it for them. Let's leave the gross generalizations out of this room.

For the record I do not belong to the aforementioned age group.
