Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson

3.2
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.

  • My family goes between 10 to 30 times a year. Season passes and meal plans are definitely worth it. Once you get over that initial investment it makes for an inexpensive day for the whole family from April to January. Best time to get season passes and meal plans is at the end of the summer for the next year. It's great for toddlers too. Both of my kids always had a great time on the tiny rides through the intermediate and now moving onto the big rides. If you get your passes for the following season when they're first available, at the end of the summer they upgrade them, so you can use them at any Six Flags theme park.
  • Not good! I was asked to dump my water out of my refill cup before entering. I did. I entered the park shortly after 10:30. Me and my kids were very thirsty,however we were not allowed to get a drink until 11 because all the stations were "closed". So we went towards Congo Rapids to cool off. Bad idea because they were closed for the entire day. So we went on the Sky Ride to take us across the park to the log flume. Bad idea again! The ride had a problem and my kids and I were stuck on the Sky ride scared to death! We were dangling up there as high as possible, afraid of heights, dehydrated, with 4 empty useless Great Adventure refill cups! We had no idea how long we would be stranded, dangling by a wire! My kids cried I prayed! We wound up stuck for 15 long minutes! It was almost 90 degrees! Had we been stuck up there for hours without a drink in the over heated condition we were already in without a drink....only God knows! I CANNOT BELIEVE that Great Adventure can take away the God given right to hydration!!! I brought filtered water from my home and they denied my right to have it without making a drink available to me immediately! I was not offered their tap water either, however, I don't trust tap water and it's wrong wrong wrong to deny me my own ability to healthy hydration for me and my children!!! Come up with a better plan!!!!
  • We have been members for the past year, Great Adventure has some of the most exciting rides we've ever been on, and it would be 5 stars, except for the new overzealous security per ride that resulted in attendants turning back people who have cellphones and keys in their pockets saying we have to use their storage lockers, but then charging for these now supposedly mandatory lockers. I understand that it is about safety but if you are going to require people to empty their pockets, you need to provide a safe place to put it for free. I don't mind paying extra for optional things, and have used the lockers in the past.
  • Better than it has been in the past with the bees. Could still be more like six flags New England and be better themed. Otherwise great. Had a really friendly caricature artist draw me and my boyfriend. It turned out really well.
  • If you're reading this Tennessee, it's only been a day since you pushed me away in a metal cage with a smile on your face. A cage plastered in an m&m advertisement. You told me you had a boyfriend when I said you were a 10. Everything happened so quickly. One second I was adjusting my tight shorts which began to stick to my delicate bottom after riding the Dark Knight, and the next I was staring into the eyes of someone I thought to be from Tennessee. Little did I know that, that person was a monster. That person was you. Although I am still picking up the pieces of my gay broken heart, I do not resent you. It is quite the opposite. I did not think it possible, but when I said you were a 10 I did not realize at the time that I was repressing my true emotions. My mind couldn't handle reality. My mouth said 10 but my mind and heart said 11. I...I...I will never forget you Tennessee!
