Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson

Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
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.

  • Me and my family bought season passes, best $350 I've spent! We have been 12 times (combined with Hurricane Harbor). We go (or try to) once a week. Our ride is 1hour and 30 minutes each way, and we...  more »
  • We visited on a Sunday in July. We entered the park at 10 am(we skipped the safari this time). We were able to get on 10 rides before 1 pm which was excellent. After lunch in to the evening, the park....  more »

  • The rides are really fun. Tickets are reasonably priced, but the new membership programs are by far the best value, especially if you catch them on sale. The food is over priced, but it's an amusement park so no surprise there. I'm not a fan of the uninterested, "just here for a paycheck" teenage ride attendants. My wife and I were both really impressed with the first aid attendants though. They were extremely nice, knowledgeable and helpful.
  • Awesome amusement park. Have been going to six flags for over 20 years, since I was a teenager, and now my two kids enjoy this park with me and my wife. The price of admission is a bit high but the collection of rides and things to do is well worth it. Special events like fright fest and holiday in the park are a big plus and make it worth coming back in the fall and winter. If you are visiting more than once a year get the season pass. The best time to buy on sale is in the fall.
  • Love Six Flags Great Adventure! The rides for the Children are not only safe but entertaining for them. My teenagers were happy with all the rides plus the arcades. My only semi-complaint is the food offered. I don't mind paying a little more (amusement park prices) but I don't like it when the food offered is not even average. Next time we will tail gate lunch......
  • Six Flags Great Adventure is a top amusement park due the the sheer number of rides. They could offer a few more rides for non thrill seekers so that all guests within a group can enjoy the day. There are many food venues and snack options. As good as this place is there are a few drawbacks. The lines to address season pass/ membership issues are quite long. The flash pass wristbands are very dated. A lot of the older rides are showing their age and really need sprucing up. As with any amusement park, the food prices are insanely expensive. But all in all it's a good way to spend a day.
  • Six flags is just great. Kind of pricey, but do we expect anything else from an amusement park? Besides that, everything is just cool and funny if you challenge yourself to try every ride. My advice: bring comfortable shoes, because the place is huge and you'll walk quite a lot. Enjoy your visit!!
