The park is relatively close to us so we go enough to make the season pass work for us. Yet I do not see this as a 'destination park' as perhaps Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. In part because aside the outlets there is nothing to do nearby in Jackson, but also because unless you are ok waiting in line all... More

You are a kid or a grown up, doesn't matter. One of the biggest adventure parks in new jersey between new York and Philadelphia. Here you have plenty of rides. You must try the huge rollercoaster here. If you live in the vicinity you can buy season passes and then you can bring in visitors for free. Food options are... More

Went on opening day of 2015. Park looked weathered and tired, not what you would expect on an opening weekend. Numerous rides were not working and/or would shut down because of mechanical difficulties without any explanation of how long it will take to repair. Tried to speak with Customer service after only going on 3 rides after 8 hours and... More

We went here as a family of 5 in Summer 2014. We purchased our entrance and premium flash pass (over $750) so this was an expensive day! The rides were run by kids with little senior supervision. At one point, my 6 year old was ushered onto the El Toro roller coaster by a staff member when she was 4... More

What a great place for the entire family -- grandparents, too -- to visit. Plenty to do for all ages. Even the grownups get to ride with the little ones. And those "seniors" brave enough to take on the coasters ... what a thrill it is for the kids to watch!!!

We took a weekend trip to New Jersey, and I am glad I did. This park is great! The food there is great, the rides are great, and the park was very clean. We only stayed until about 3 because we didn't want to wait in long lines, but we rode everything we wanted to except for two rides.

Top be honest the other roller coasters here are so so. The main attraction is just getting on Kingda Ka. Yes if you do not get in line early enough you will be waiting for a while but an exciting roller coaster it is. I think Great Adventure is one of the better Six Flags on the east coast so... More

I lost my iPhone in Superman ride and went to file a Lost and found report. I could located the phone that it is in Six flags through iPhone locator. The Lost and found service personnel were very rude. I filed a claim and called them every week but they were very rude and unresponsive. Cannot believe that they treat... More
