News & Rumors


THE GREAT ESCAPE & Splashwater Kingdom
Lake George, New York
Six Flags Theme Parks




Park News - (7/19/18) According to the official park website, both the Comet and Alphine Bobsled are listed as being closed. Typically Six Flags doesn't list rides as being closed on their website unless they are expected to be closed for a more extended period of time. While I don't know how long Comet has been down, a reader was told by an employee that Alpine Bobsled has only ran for a few days this year so far and been closed for awhile. Anyone know more?
    (7/3/17) Good news for The Great Escape, the local news reports that the park has reopened their Sky Ride attraction to the public.


2018 - Pandemonium - (8/31/17) Look for The Great Escape to be adding a spinning new flat ride to the lineup called Pandemonium. Based on a brief video clip shows this appears to be a Chance Rides Freestyle flat ride. If I’m wrong on this, someone please let me know.


icon_STOP2019 - Hurricane Harbor - (8/30/18) The Great Escape will upgrade and transform the waterpark into Hurricane Harbor for 2019. The upgrade will feature two brand new attractions, new themed renovations and a tropical paradise atmosphere. One new attraction is Bucket Blastrers, a wet spinning flat ride experience, where riders are able to shoot water cannons.
