    Updated my list since I visited another back in August and the chain has expanded...sorta:

    1. Six Flags Magic Mountain
    2. Six Flags New England
    3. Six Flags over Georgia
    4. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
    5. Six Flags Great Adventure
    6. Six Flags Mexico
    7. Darien Lake - Visited twice in the past two years and I did not find the park bad by any stretch. The coasters could certainly benefit from extra trains, but the park was fairly clean, lush, and just has a laid back feel to it.
    8. Six Flags St. Louis
    9. Six Flags Great America
    10. La Ronde
    11. The Great Escape - It's a beautiful park, but aside from that and Comet, it's a waste. The ride lineup is horrendous and the park layout is confusing as hell. Basically, its scenery is the only thing keeping it from being last on the list.
    12. Six Flags America

    Ch-ch-ch-changes!
    1. Six Flags Fiesta Texas- Such a weird park I love it so much. The quarry setting is so unique and allows for some great coaster moments. The scenery setting really elevates the park, but it also has shockingly well thought out and themed areas. Loved practically all of the park.
    2. Six Flags Great Adventure- That lineup is fantastic and is arguably one of the best in the country. I even think that the picnic area is the nicest place in a Six Flags. However, it's a bit soulless as compared to Fiesta Texas; it lacks that park's kinda kitsch charm. If it gets that RMC it'll probably take back the crown.
    3. Six Flags Over Georgia- Really had a great time my most recent visit. I don't like how sprawling it is, but, with the addition of Twisted Cyclone, it now has one of the best lineups in their chain. And also Acrophobia which is my favorite non-ToT drop tower.
    4. Six Flags Over Texas- My last visit was in 2008, but I do remember it being a very nice park with some great scenery and shade.
    5. Six Flags New England- Tiny park, but it has two absolutely amazing coasters and a decent supporting lineup. It's nothing amazing, but it was a nice visit.
    6. Six Flags St. Louis- A nice, charming little park. I think it's one of the nicest looking Six Flags, but its lineup is really, really weak.
    7. Six Flags Magic Mountain- Amazing, amazing coaster collection, but I had an overall very negative visit. 7 major rides closed and waits reaching 4 hours! I imagine I'll actually enjoy it if I revisit on a less crowded day.

    Just the three for me, all visted last year...

    1. Over Georgia - excellent line-up of coasters (even more so now they have an RMC) with Goliath being the standout, plus some decent non-coaster attractions. The clientele seemed completely fine when I was there too and the staff were fairly pleasant. The landscaping is also pretty nice but I didn't eat there so can't comment on the food (I expect it's :emoji_poop: though)
    2. New England - two world class coasters in Wicked Cyclone and Superman, plus the Batman B&M floorless is decent. Other than that most of the creds are :emoji_poop: and there aren't many good flats or water rides. The food was garbage but the park layout was OK.
    3. The Great Escape - The Comet is great but everything else sucks coaster-wise. Water rides were pretty decent. Layout is confusing but it has more character than the other SF parks I've visited and the sorrounding area is nice.

    The park began as a completely independently owned and run park simply called "Magic Mountain" for nearly a decade before Six Flags ever bought it.

    With the exception of Great Escape, I've been to every SF park in the states (so no Mexico or La Ronde yet, either). It's pretty subjective, because parks can have good days/bad days, good ops/bad ops. But overall:

    1) Great Adventure. Simply because it's a great balance of coasters, flat rides, architecture, animals, theming, and history. Literally something for everyone, and has great re-visit value.
    2) Magic Mountain. Even though it's my home park (aside from Universal), and the coaster line up is the best in the chain, and it (typically) has great operations (comparatively) and history. But it's significant lack of flat rides and only so-so theming pulls it down.
    3) Discovery Kingdom. Not necessarily super notable rides, but again a very good balance of thrills, flats, and animals. Always something to do.
    4) New England. Only got to visit this park for my first time this year, but really enjoyed it. Small, but friendly, nice atmosphere, and another good balance of theming and attractions.
    5) Great America. So much to do and see! But the crowds can get pretty unruly, and the park is almost too large for it's own good... getting around is worse than going around World Showcase lagoon at EPCOT.
    6) Over Texas. Fun park, first in the chain. Not perfect, but many redeeming qualities. Shockwave is a great surprise every time.
    7) Fiesta Texas. Unique location, some fun rides. That said, last time I visited this park was back in 2003, so my memory is a bit hazy and a lot has changed since then, so this went in a semi-random spot on my list. (Joker's Jinx was still around at the time, the backwards Arrow coaster.) Hoping to revisit this one again in a few years.
    8) Over Georgia. Actually, I did enjoy this park, and it has some lovely areas. Nothing really "wrong" with it, although it can also attract unruly crowds at time. But nothing really "for" it, either.
    9) St. Louis. I want to like this park, but it just feels disjointed, and the rides as a whole are not memorable (except the flat ride Excalibur, but it's basically as good as removed at this poiint, right?)
    10) America. Again, this visit was many, many years ago (well over a decade), but I remember it looking dirty, unmaintained, rude crowds, and generally not a good experience. I'd be willing to give it another chance one day, but I'm not in much of a hurry to return.

    1. Six Flags Great Adventure (I feel like this is one of the best ones in the chain, maybe magic mountain beats it???)
    2. Six Flags New England (was cool but sfgadv has a larger line up and more other stuff to do like see animals etc)
    3. Six Flags America (no particularly standout rides, just felt like it lacked atmosphere compared to the others)

    1. Magic Mountain. My first taste of the Six Flags experience, had a fantastic day here. Low crowds, long hours, decent ops, nice weather, rerides, night rides, the lot.
    Deja Vu and Superman spited, but what the hell. Still a great day.

    2. Great Adventure. Had a great day here too, again with low crowds, decent ops, good weather and no spites. Fab coaster line-up.

    3. Great America. Decent park, no real complaints here, plenty of creds etc.. but a bit flat, a bit tarmac-y.

    4. St Louis. One of the weaker parks in the chain fo sho, but still not exactly bad. Fairly generic line-up, but Freeze is good, the GCI and the B&M are dependable and it's actually a prettier park than Great America, sooo y'know. It's ok.

    1. Six Flags Over Georgia. The closest Six Flags park to me (3 and a half hours away). It has a very diverse coaster lineup with the frontrunners being Goliath, Twisted Cyclone and Mind Bender (Great 1-2 punch, I like Goliath a bit more than the latter) with a controversially fun standup in Georgia Scorcher and a powerful B&M invert in Batman. I rode Blue Hawk when it was Ninja back on my first visit in 2015, and Ninja immediately became my least favorite coaster of all time... Blue Hawk has somewhat redeemed Ninja, but still it's not even cracking my top 50. I rode Great American Scream Machine on my 2nd visit this year and it was a rough, painful jerky and airtimeless woodie. On another note some of the park's areas does feel a bit run down, as you can see these dingy backstage areas from the train ride. Still a great place.
    2. Six Flags Over Texas. Maybe it was because I shoehorned my one hastily planned visit into four hours on a rainy day, but this park rubbed me the wrong way. Lots of the paths that you THINK will lead to rides are actually dead ends, and the trails that you assume are ride exits end up being midways. Coupled with Joker & Mr. Freeze being down for the entire day, New Texas Giant breaking down when I was about to get a 2nd lap on it and the entire park was closed for an hour's worth of rain I feel like Six Flags Over Texas deserves better policies & treatment than it currently gets. I'll probably never revisit this park in my life sadly as I still have 8 more creds to obtain, most notably Shock Wave which I was really excited to ride (vintage Schwarzkopf fanboy here), the aforementioned Mr. Freeze & Joker, and Runaway Mine Train.
    Wow, that was a lot of rambling. :confused:

    Six Flags Magic Mountain - Tatsu, Twisted Collosus, X2, Green Lantern :) And a bunch of other B&Ms and a decent GCO
    Six Flags Great Adventure - Had a good time here, El Toro and KK are standouts, bu the B&Ms are all fun.
    Six Flags Great America - Again, a really good diverse line up. quite liked X Flight, Goliath and Justice League.
    Six Flags Fiesta Texas - Probably the 'nicest' park in the chain, with a good mixed line up.
    Six Flags Over Georgia - Good selection of attractions.
    Six Flags New England - SROS makes this place, but everything else is middle of the road.
    Six Flags Discovery Kindgom - I had a nice time here.
    Six Flags Over Texas - Other than New Texas Giant, Mr Freeze and Titan, it didn't really take me.
    Six Flags America - The hyper and the flyer are cool and that's about it.
    Six Flags St. Louis - Nothing interesting here.

    1. Six Flags Magic Mountain - I love the 1-2 punch of Twisted Colossus and X2. Superman Escape From Krypton, Tatsu, Riddler's Revenge, Goliath, and Scream are must dos, and I find Ninja, Viper, Apocalypse, and Goldrusher to be underrated. Full Throttle is way overrated. (Last Visited 2018)
    2. Six Flags Great Adventure - El Toro is obviously the best, but you can't forget about Kingda Ka, Nitro, and Bizarro. I will say they did remove quite a few of their great rides like Batman and Robin The Chiller, Great American Scream Machine, and Rolling Thunder. (Last Visited 2018)
    3. Six Flags Great America - Goliath and Raging Bull are good rides and with Maxx Force they'll have a great top 3. Whizzer, Viper, American Eagle, and X Flight are also worth checking out. (Last Visited 2014)
    4. Six Flags Over Georgia - When I visited here I wasn't tall enough for Goliath, but Mind Bender was awesome. be sure to check out Monster Mansion it's unlike anything else in the Six Flags chain. (Last Visited 2008)
    5. Six Flags Over Texas - It's the original and they have an amazing hybrid with New Texas Giant. Titan, Mr. Freeze, and Shock Wave should put this park high on your list. (Last Visited 2017)
    6. Six Flags Fiesta Texas - Staying in the lone star state we have this park set in an old limestone quarry and they put an RMC named Iron Rattler on top. Add in Superman Krypton Coaster and Goliath and you've got a great park. (Last Visited 2015)
    7. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom - This park is half zoo half rides, be sure to check out the animals. Joker and Medusa are the stars here and Superman Ultimate Flight is fun. (Last Visited 2016)
    8. Six Flags New England - Bizarro, and Batman The Dark Knight are great, but then there's a steep drop off in coaster quality. Do visit the waterpark though. (Last Visited 2014)
    9. Six Flags St. Louis - American Thunder and Mr. Freeze are great, If you catch Boss on a good day that one's great too. (Last Visited 2018)
    10. Six Flags America - Wild One and Superman Ride Of Steel are great but there's not much else, the waterpark is nice though. (Last Visited 2018)
