The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom Fun Park is a 140-acre theme park featuring a wide array of themepark rides, great shows, plus Splashwater Kingdom waterpark.
This was one place we always visited once a year on July 4, when we took the kids to Lake George. There was always something fun and exciting to do, and the kids never wanted to leave...and honestly, neither did we! We may visit sometime in the future!
This is a fun park that offers a lot to the family. There is a splash kingdom that caters to the youngest of visitors to the oldest, The park offers mild thrill seekers to those dare devils excitement. The shows and characters are sure to make the day of the kids and put a smile on their face (who doesn't like to have their picture taken with Batman?). The price can be steap but with coupons / discounts and a wise budget any family can have a wonderful time!
I grew up going to Storytown in Lake George which was later expanded and turned into Great Escape. Some of the old Storytown attractions are stil there. It is expensive (typical for theme parks) but generally you can find coupons for a discounted rate. The lines weren't outrageous. However, food prices were very outrageous. A little known secret is that the food vendors are required to provide you with a cup of cold water if you request it.
The kids had fun, and it was your average amusement park. Very costly and crowded. It was clean enough though. The food seemed even more expensive than the other amusement parks. I think this is much better for older kids and families. Mine were too young to enjoy much of it at all. But my older nieces and nephews had a blast.
This is New York’s largest theme park, with one admission price for over 125 wet and dry rides (including five roller coasters), shows, and attractions, including high-diving shows, ice shows, and the Red Garter Saloon Revue. Toddlers love Storytown, Noah’s Lark, and Noah’s Sprayground.
