    While camping with my family up in beautiful Lake George last week, we had the chance to spend the day at the Great Escape. We visited on a Wedensday, and had quite a good time. The park was much bigger than I had anticipated it to be and it was beautifully themed and landscaped. I hit all of the coasters, but only rode the Comet more thanb once (I rode it 4 times!!!). The longest wait of the day was the first for Nightmare which was an hour, and so not worth it. The only other fualt with the park I could find was the waterpark, which was really poor. Other than that, I had a fabulous time and would love to visit it again just for the Comet alone.
