Attractions
The park's main attractions are Bizarro (one of the top steel coasters in the world!), Batman: The Dark Knight, and Scream. Other attractions that can't be missed are Catapult (only S&S Flyswatter in the US), Houdini: The Great Escape (Vekoma Mad House), Buzzsaw, and Cyclone, a woodie where you better hold on for the first drop. Pandamonium is a spinning coaster with a small footprint and low capacity, but it has a single-rider line.

On those hot summer days, the park has a full-size water park included in the park admission. For the young ones, the park has two dedicated areas: Looney Tunes Movie Town and KIDZOPOLIS. The highlight of these areas is The Great Chase roller coaster.

It is best to get to the park when it opens and head straight to Bizarro; that will allow you to get a couple of rides in before the lines build to over an hour long.
Food
The park has several options for food from BBQ (Big Ben's Longhorn BBQ), to seafood (Captain Brady’s Seafood) to hamburgers (Johnny Rockets Express). One of the better offerings in the park are the buffalo chicken tenders available at Spuds and Such near the Looney Tunes Food Court. For the sweet tooth, the park is home to Peaches and Cream and Sweet Shoppe.

For more information on dining options please see the park's website:
