Not only a popular amusement park but also a renowned concert venue, Six Flags Great Adventure contains eleven themed areas, three of them designed with small children in mind. In 2012, the complex combined its 65 hectares (160 acre) with a 140 hectare (350 acre) animal park, making this one of the largest amusement parks in the world. Choose from over 100 rides, shows, and special events, or go on an off-road safari adventure for a chance to see and feed a range of big and small exotic animals. To help find your way inside the enormous park, pick up a map at the front gate. Save money and avoid long lines by buying your tickets online. Plan your visit to Six Flags Great Adventure and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Jackson attractions planner.

  • Dirty and overpriced just like the rest of the state. Not all rides are operational, and you can tell they are poorly maintained. Staff was very rude, many drink stations are closed and i was given...

  • If you go to Six Flags Great Adventure I highly recommend disregarding all rides EXCEPT Skull Mountain. Skull Mountain is by far the best roller coaster in the park. Featuring thrilling drops, twist and turns. I do no suggest children under the age of 15 go on due to the darkness and scariness. If you are looking for an amazing once in a lifetime experience please go on this roller coaster you will not be disappointed. I rode Skull Mountain 10 consecutive times today. Getting ready to do 10 more tomorrow. GO SKULL MOUNTAIN!
  • Has some excellent roller coasters. The crowds can get a little crazy in season, regardless of the day as long as the weather is nice, so if you're not a big crowd person be aware of that. A couple of coasters require you leave loose items either with a non-rider or in a locker. They do have lockers right by those coasters that are reasonable. The park is also cashless, but does have some places that allow you to change your cash for a card.
  • I would have given this a 5 star the park is amazing and the safari tour was absolutely wonderful! The site wouldn't allow us to purchase tickets online, we even tried at the park. A few others had the same issue. We ended up purchasing a pass that would allow us to revisit until labor day. That would be great, unfortunately half of my group planned on returning home to Australia. When we went to validate our pass a very impatient lady decided she had priority to not wait in line and caused heaps of drama. The park was kept clean and surprisingly the food was pretty good. The education you get on the safari was delightful. We drove the animal park as well.
  • So, we went during the Halloween celebrations and it was amazing... there were couple of scary areas/ zones, one of them being the haunted road, where people would walk around with axes and chase the viewers 😭😂 It was very thrilling... and the rides were amazing as heck... they had pretty huge ones as well as children friendly ones. The water ride was the best, I guess.
  • Went to great adventure fright fest with friends. It was fairly void of crowds, which made the experience great. The lines with rides were fast. Went on the jersey devil, Great ride. I have one major complaint. For what I paid for my food, it should be hot. But this is to be expected. Didn't let that ruin my visit. The mood of the place was creepy and Halloween season. I can't wait to visit for Christmas season. Now great adventure isn't the right place for everyone and fright fest isn't for young kids, but that's up to the parents to decide. Its a pity great adventure doesn't have a hotel on sight or near by, it could make a profit in vacation packages deals. Now myself I like the mega theme parks. Going to one of the big ones for Halloween trip in Orlando. I do recommend six flags for anyone who has a day to spend..
