This is not as bad as what the one-star reviewers claim. To those folks, I say: Yes, it's a modest (read: small) amusement park. It's right off the LIE in the center of Long Island. Well, guess what? These two points are exactly why there's overcrowding all the time: it's small but accessible. Plan around the crowd. Arrive 30-40 minutes earlier, get your tickets/wristbands and line up, bring a sandwich and eat an early lunch while you wait to enter. You'll be riding Turbulence repeatedly in no time. If you can't commit to making your way upstate NY or across the river to NJ for a different amusement park experience, don't complain about how a small and accessible park is so overcrowded all the time!
On the flip side, there are those that left 5 star reviews. I'm glad they had a good time, but I suppose they could be misleading you. This is, in all honesty, a glorified carnival instead of a proper amusement park, which is why a good number of people aren't okay with having to pay the full ticket price to enter. For what it is, this is an okay place to spend half a day with your family and friends, if you know how to beat the crowd.
