This was a bizarre little walk throgh, but I somehow enjoyed it. it is extremely secluded and I remember searching for it for a while which adds to the effect of the attraction

Absolutely old school awesome fun. The goofy things they kept at this park is what makes it so great. this walkthrough, the mini village, the Bugs Bunny thing over the crazy bridges are pure theme park gold. Awesome.

Does a good job at keeping the walkthrough secluded, fun for kids.

I thought this Alice in Wonderland walk-through attraction was just okay. Although it was sort of right smack in the center of the park, it was secluded from everything else by a tall, surrounding wooden fence. The entrance and exit were indoor scenes, but the majority was outside, under the shade of all the trees that reside in this park. And it took up quite a large area. However, the figures set up were very sparse and there was really no continuity to the story. We just kind of walked in, strolled through, said "hmm, thats nice," and left. Certainly a break from a hectic theme park day, and probably quite nostalgic for those who can remember it from their childhood, but I didnt think it was that great.

Alice in Wonderland is a true Disney classic thanks to its zany story and crazy settings. Inevitably, various theme park attractions have been spun off based upon this classic attraction, with most of them themed to the movie’s famous tea party scene courtesy of the Mad Hatter. But often overshadowed among these takeoffs from the movie is definitely the most unique of them, The Great Escape’s Alice in Wonderland walkthrough.

Secluded in its own little section towards the center of the park, this attraction really captures the atmosphere of the novel thanks to its isolation from the rest of the park. The tall wooden fences around the perimeter of the attraction along with the tall trees overhead that provide some highly-coveted shade really capture the feel of Alice in Wonderland, adding to the illusion of the attraction. Also to note, the attraction itself is totally hidden from view until entering the attraction, making the attraction much more exciting since what’s in store for riders is a surprise. And don’t worry at all about lines because since this is a walkthrough, just walk on in and enjoy.

Once inside the attraction, it’s instantly apparent that this is a truly classic attraction that can’t be found at most corporate parks. The beginning and conclusion of the attraction are composed of a brief indoor segment, but I personally enjoy the exterior segment the most. Literally the entire walkthrough is larger than life, as kids can climb over flowers and blades of grass and adults can just admire the uniqueness of the attraction. However, the attraction suffers from two downfalls- its relatively short length and more importantly, a lack of interactive elements.

Despite the attraction’s flaws, Alice in Wonderland is a nice change of pace to escape the hectic pace of the park. It’s simply a relaxing attraction that very few parks would even bother to keep around nowadays, but I definitely appreciate Six Flags appreciating the park’s historical roots and not demolishing this classic for a more technologically advanced attraction. However, despite the ride’s nostalgic feel, it is a sub-par attraction overall in my opinion. Definitely save some time for this neat, little classic since it’s really unlike any other attraction I’ve come across. Just don’t be expecting theming at the level of Universal or Disney.

It is a fun walk through, and it is cooler because of all the trees and shade to escape the heat and sun.

Similar to Jungleland, this is a rare attraction today. Its fun to stroll through once during every trip. there usually arent more than a few families walking through at any one time, so its a nice chace to escape the crowds for a few minutes and walk in the shade.

Bizarro World. At one time this stuff was considered fun and exciting. Gives one pause when ready to fly with criticizing a ride for the angle of an inversion or not reaching warp speed.

This used to be a lot of fun when I was kid. Im glad the park has kept this attraction and I hope they keep it looking as nice for years to come.

One of the nicest walkthroughs outside of the florida parks. Recently painted, I hope this section will stay when GE converts to a Six Flags. Great childhood memories here.
