Sixty miles north of Albany, you’ll find The Great Escape, a combination theme and water park. While its official name is The Great Escape, this park still has Six Flags fun written all over it. The park first opened in 1954 as Storytown USA, a theme park for small children with a Mother Goose theme.
The park changed its name to The Great Escape in 1983 and opened the first of its roller coasters, the Steamin’ Demon, the following year. Since then, the park has just gotten bigger and better — and with the help of Metropolitan Shuttle®, arranging transportation to and from The Great Escape couldn’t be easier.
What will you find when you step off the charter bus or school bus to The Great Escape? Only one thrill ride after another. If you’re a fan of classic roller coasters, they don’t get much more classic than the Comet, which has been thrilling riders for almost 90 years. Or you could brave the loops of the Steamin’ Demon, the ride that started it all.
Even if roller coasters aren’t your thing, you’ll still find plenty to thrill you. You and the family can hit up the Olympiad Grand Prix Go-Karts, or take to the skies in the high-speed Dare Devil Dive, which will send you flying at 60 mph from a 175-foot tower. If you want a fast thrill that’s a little closer to the ground, try out the Alpine Bobsled, which sends riders on a winding path down 1,490 feet of switchback mountain trail.
For the smaller visitors to The Great Escape, there are bite-sized rides. Kids of all ages can drive their own big rigs on Convoy, catch a ride on Frankie’s Mine Train, or spin around on the Krazy Kups. There’s also the kid-sized racetrack Sheldon’s Speedway, or an airborne journey of Timbertown aboard Spruce’s Wilderness Bus Tours. In between rides, refuel with pretzels, burgers, funnel cakes, and more from one of Great Escape’s many restaurants.
