Isn't the two-face the ride that gets stuck all the time? Why don't they just shut the ride down all together?

This amusement park has been crappy since they rebuilt it from Adventure World. The last time I went and will ever go again was a few years ago during Frightfest. The only thing frightful was that most of the rides were broke down or breaking down. And they charged extra for the haunted house. I refuse to go back and I forbid my kid to go.

I was there.. Almost 3 HOURS it took to get the people down.. A BUNCH of the rides were "out of order" and or not working.. That place was a CRAP HOLE.. I went there 2 times that day. My first and my LAST for SURE... The whole place was a dump, plus 90% of the employee's were TERRIBLE.. If they were making even minimum wage they were overpaid... That place is a JOKE.. I can't believe ANYONE would go there more than one time in their life..

Any coincidence that the problems are increasing now that Danny Boy Snyder is in control of things at Six Flags? I am sure that SOB cut back on maintenance at the park, cut salaries/staff, and raised prices. The park was falling apart to begin with. I have been there once and agree 100% with animallover0917

All Snyder cares about is the bottom line.

I smell lawsuits.

Time to shut that ride down for good.

We were there on Sat., also. It was our first time and the place was so dirty... and the bathrooms were worse. The Batman ride broke down while we were in line. We should have reported a ride employee for starting a spaceship kiddie ride while kids were still standing and she also let several children on that were not tall enough. It was unbelievable! We were shocked. Never again.

First, Bugs was the dirtiest mascot I have ever seen and he smelled like a homeless man.

I was afraid fro my kid on a ride, as the “attendant” was busy talking on her cell phone while it ran for an entire 5 minutes. There were parents trying to get her attention but she couldn’t hear over her conversation.

The food was terrible, and the shows were horrible,

I waited over an hour for Superman, and when I got to the ride they told me I wasn't able to ride.

I was at Six Flags Great adventure last weekend (I expected the same treatment) when I arrived I was extremely surprised how friendly and clean the park was. All the rides were open; the new wiggles area looked nice. Clean mascots were walking around everywhere, and I didn’t need to get shots after my visit.

They should close the park down in Md. to build Snyder's new stadium.

It's a shame that happened especially after 2 visits that I made the first where my husband on the exact same ride the almost fell off and had to hold his own weight while the ride was in motion. 2nd time we where with a co-worker and the exact same thing happen. While riding the locks opened up only holding him by the belt. Several complaints made and nothing done about now here are 28 people who had to experience it that.

Hopefully it gets shut down and stays down.
