Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson

3.4
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.

  • So far I've only been to Hurricane Harbor and I had such an amazing time I've went twice already. Water slides were very fun and not scary. It's kid friendly but little kids can't go on most of the rides because of height restrictions. Some rides adults can't go on either for the same reason. There are at least three big pool areas that are great for children. Know ahead of time to not try and bring in food because the security staff won't let it inside the park. Backpacks and bags will be checked by security. All in all a superb way to spend an off day with friends/family.
  • We have a season pass to Six Flags this year so the impromptu decision to visit was well worth it. The 2 1/2 hour drive was easy for us because we often drive long distances. Wait times we're not terrible on our visit. As usual with all Six Flags, food prices are outrageous--not in a good way. Of course, as worthy of the reputation, the rides are generally much better than many other locations. While you can certainly get bragging rights to ride the tallest roller coaster in the world, to be honest, it wasn't worth it. It was jarring the entire time. For a steel roller coaster of such a modern design I was very surprised at how rattly the entire ride experience was. No one in our party felt the need to ride it more than once including several extreme coaster enthusiasts. El Toro, on the other hand, Is definitely worth waiting for and has the well deserved reputation for being the most thrilling wooden roller coaster on earth. It is surprisingly smooth for a wooden roller coaster. You'd never know it was wooden with how smooth it was.
  • They have rides for every age range. The food is not bad at all, with typical theme park fare available around the park. We have never been sick after eating various burgers, burritos, wraps, salads, pizza and of course desserts (No, not all at the same time). They have Gluten Free options for those with Celiac/Gluten Allergies. The best time to buy season passes is labor day, (or after) which gives you the rest of the current year and all of the following year for a very low price. The Season Pass option with meals is worth it, as you get two meals and a snack (every visit), and a drink cup with unlimited refills. During Fright Fest the park is dark and foggy, setting the perfect stage for all the zombies, monsters, vampires and other things that go bump in the night. Six Flags does an amazing job on the costumes and makeup which are up to par with Hollywood standards. The Holiday In The Park is cozy and warm with Christmas trees, lights and various holiday smells (Christmas tree, peppermint etc.) that are pumped in to different areas of the park. You can't help, but get swept up in the holiday spirit that Six Flags creates. All in all, this is a great and safe place to spend time with friends and family, and hopefully create some good memories. Enjoy!
  • Had an awesome day. Rides for all ages and levels. Lines moved fast!! Nice that there is a middle level of ride 'scariness' so the younger kids (7-9) who want to ride roller coasters can do that too! Runaway Train and Skull mountain rides were great for that level. Also great that there were rides the whole family could do together such as the Log Flume and Congo Rapids. (4 yr old through 11 year old loved those!) Kids also enjoyed a funny (for kids ;)) show at safari area. Reason for lack of five stars is restriction on bringing food or drink (even water) into park and all food and drink are overpriced inside the park. Otherwise, a great time was had by all!!
  • Amazing place still amazing as an adult as I remembered as when I was younger coming on holidays with my parents. The rides do get the best of you they are high and fast and very adrenaline filled. I had an awesome time and I got the summer pass where you can come as many times from April to September I used it twice but it was worth it as one day is about €82. Definitely a great place to go with friends (even numbers)!
