Which Six Flags park is the "odd man out"?

Which Six Flags park is unlike all the other Six Flags parks? Which Six Flags park has good landscaping, quality theming, efficient customer service, decent pricing, good assortment of flats and coasters, nice employees, and a guarentee for an overall good time? So, in other words, which Six Flags park(s) is the odd one out?

Six Flags Over Texas.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Six Flags over Texas

Six Flags over Georgia

Six Flags Fiesta Texas

I would say SFAmerica, as of last year.. but I haven't been back this year yet and I havn't been to ALL the Six Flags parks

This is based on the fact that there was Rust on EVERY coaster. trash all over the park and over flowing from the trash cans. I saw very few smiling faces

*Note: My first and only visit SO FAR was at the end of the season. So that could be a reason

^ That seems par for the course at most Six Flagses.

I think Fiesta Texas. It seems you never hear anything negative about it, plus it's not just a "thrill park", since it offers more to do than just coasters with all it's live entertainment.

I think the other notable ones are Six Flags Over Georgia, Six Flags St. Louis, and Six Flags Great America.

I would say Fiesta Texas as well.

as I found out this weekend, Definately not SF Kentucky Kingdom

SFKK....yeah...and SOB is a great coaster with tons of air! ;)

My vote is for Great America.

Six Flags Great America is above par for a Six Flags park. But, both Fiesta Texas and Over Texas are also above par.

The two original Wynne parks are both pretty good (and well taken care of) plus, like others said, Fiesta.

Kentucky Kingdom sucks...

Fiesta Texas and Over Texas. Decent pricing? Well, I don't know about that. What corporate park in this day and age has decent pricing? The answer is none. Whether I go to a Cedar Fair, Paramount, or Six Flags park, I'm going to need a small loan just to buy a large pizza, and drinks. I think I paid somewhere around $25 for a large pepperonni pizza and a regular soft drink at PKD opening day this year. Luckily, I had someone to split the cost with.

My runner-up would have to be Six Flags New England. The themeing was great, lots of flat rides, good selection of coasters for all ages, and the park pizza was the best pizza I've ever had at a park, and yes I've been to Knoebels. I'm seem to remember it being deep dish, which surprised me. As for the overall good time question, they have S:ROS. What more could you ask for?

It seems to me that SFFT and SfGam answer many of the qualities that coastergoose mentioned.(I even had a blast at SfStl.)

But with the various amount of parks that people have mentioned(minus SFKK), it almost makes me think that there are a lot more parks that are good in the chain than what some people think.

I would have to say SFoG. I am truly impressed with the landscaping, how nice the employees are, and fresh food. I'm in Atlanta now (visiting from Chicago for the weekend), and have been really happy with my time at the park. And talk about a good value... the season pass was $49, and you get 20% off of any merchandise in all of the stores, if you show them your s.p. My husband bought a t-shirt in the park and it only cost $8.

Also, the coupon book includes a great coupon for half price admission for your friends which is good at any SF park, as long as you are with them and show your s.p.

Big difference from SFGAm. I am truly impressed.

I personally think $24.99 at Geauga Lake is a good deal..

I'll put in my vote for the bastard stepchild of Sick Flags, Wyandot Lake.

It might be small, but the people there really try to do something with what they've got (which is basically a junior woodie, a couple flats, and water rides.) They seem to be practically ignored by SFI. I think the only new things they've gotten since Premier bought Sick Flags are new bumper cars, and that's only because the old building burned down!

At $49.99, their season pass (good at almost all other Sick Flags parks) is a steal.

My runner-up for those keeping score at home would be SFGAm.

I wish I could say it was SFStL. I really do think the park is quite attractive with all the trees and I've never really had a bad case of customer service. I think if we had a bit more variety in our ride selection we'd have a better status.
