Six Flags Great Escape Opening Weekend 2019!
May 11 - May 12
Mark your calendars for Opening Weekend at the Great Escape!
Be the first to ride our legendary collection of world-class rides and fan favorites on Opening Weekend, May 11-12.
We’ve got something for everyone! Adrenaline junkies, grab some serious hang time on the most thrilling rides in upstate New York, like Greezed Lightnin’ and Steamin’ Demon. We hear some of you enjoy rides that whirl and swirl while you zig and zag. Well, hang on tight, because Blizzard and Condor are ready to spin you till you have a laugh attack. Have some junior daredevils along for the ride? Your tykes will love our kid’s rides and family rides like Frankie’s Mine Train and Marshal’s Stampede Bumper Cars.
There are some things in life that we all enjoy — like good times with friends, great food, and of course, funnel cakes! You only have to wait till Opening Weekend to treat your crew to all three… just save some room for cotton candy and Dippin’ Dots. After you sample your favorite delectable theme park favorites, satisfy your hunger for great entertainment at our awesome shows.
Take your friends and family on an adventure this spring they’ll never forget — mark your calendar because the fun all starts on Opening Weekend, May 11-12. What’s the best part? The Great Escape 2018 Season Pass or Membership makes this “stay-cation” the ultimate deal. With unlimited visits all season, free tickets for friends on select days, and hundreds of dollars’ worth of in-park savings, this is one sweet deal you can’t afford to miss.
