JDRF One Walk May 11
Join us as we kick off our 2019 season with a walk for a good cause. On Saturday, May? 11, join our 2-mile walk to help raise awareness and funds for the Northeastern NY Chapter of JDRF, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with Type 1 Diabetes. For every $100 donated to the cause, we are donating a ticket to the registered JDRF walker (capped at 4,000 tickets). Want to help but don’t think you can reach the $100 donation? We’ll give you a special discounted rate for admission to enjoy all the thrills the park has to offer on opening day.
Reserve Your Spot for Senior Nite Before Space Fills Up
Everyone looks back on their best high school memories – and Senior Nite will be the most talked-about experience among college dorm mates. To make sure you don’t miss out, tell your high school principals to reserve your spot for the hottest graduation celebration in Lake George. Senior Nite 2019 offers more thrills than any other senior party, with live DJs, dance floors, a MIKE AND IKE foam party, and roller coasters in the middle of the night. And with great school rates, exclusive chaperone lounge areas, and highly trained security specialists, it also offers the most value and peace of mind for parents and educators. Space is filling up quickly but there are still a few spots left for our biggest event on June? 7. Book now to reserve your place.

Things to Bring with You on Opening Day
With Opening Day just around the corner, you’re probably too excited to think straight. To make sure you have everything you need to kick off our season, here are a few helpful reminders of what to bring to ensure the only thing you are worried about is what coaster to ride next. Before you pile into the car, make sure you are wearing a sturdy, comfortable pair of sneakers. Come prepared for the UV rays with sunglasses, a hat, and a whole bottle of Coppertone Sunscreen. If you’re planning to ride water rides, pack your phone and wallet in a plastic bag to keep them nice and dry, and bring a spare set of socks to avoid sloshing all day. Don’t forget to grab your pre-printed tickets, Season Pass, or Membership card on the way out! The best way to carry all these Six Flags staples is in a lightweight backpack so your hands are free for drinks and sweets. If you do forget something off your checklist, our park is full of shops that have
Best Carefree Tips for Busy Parents
At Six Flags, we want every family member to have the best, stress-free experience possible, no matter how old or young you are. That’s why we’ve asked our busiest parents for their tips to help spend the day having fun – not worrying. When you first enter the park, be sure to point out our team members in blue shirts to your little loved ones – they’ll be able to help if you get separated while exploring. Before venturing deeper into the park, pick up a park map to find the fastest way to our tyke-friendly rides in Timbertown. For those with only two hands, rent a locker to hold your diaper bag and lease a stroller for tired little legs. At snack time, grab a booster seat and high chair at one of our many delicious dining locations, and be sure to ask about our smaller-portion kid’s menu offerings for the pickiest of eaters.
Comet is Better in the Front Row
Coming in first – whether it’s in a race for a medal or a race for the comfiest spot on the couch – is always the best. The same is true in a race around Comet! Grab a seat in the front row and you’ll have a head start on experiencing all the exciting thrills this colossal coaster has to offer. As the train reaches its highest point of 95 feet, you’ll get an unobstructed view of what lies ahead, including massive drops and banked turns! You’ll stare the beastly plunge right in the eyes and be the first person on the ride to reach the bottom. Once the ride is over, you’ll be racing back to be first in line for a second ride.
