10+ yr Season Pass holder... Well worth the money. I travel at least 2 1/2 hrs to visit park and it's worth it...

Six Flags Great Adventure is a great theme park full of great thrilling rides. It is located about an hour away from NYC in Jackson, NJ. There are various attractions for youths of all ages. It is far the best theme park in the Northeast. It holds the 2nd longest wooden roller coaster of the Six Flags Theme Parks. In Central USA visit Great America in Chicago, IL and the West Coast Magic Mountain in California. Which ever Six Flags Theme Park you choose. I'm sure there are plenty of entertainment for the entire families and friends.

I made a visit intentionally for fright fest, not only were the ticket prices HIGHER r than regular season but the haunted attractions were an ADDITIONAL COST ranging 8-18 dollars per person. The bulk of the park is filled with stands targeting you to spend more money, which is almost impossible to avoid because the distance of one ride to another is scarcely apart. You are basically forced to purchase the flash pass if you would like to have a good time because, they fail to fill all coaster seats sometimes ENTIRE ROWS are completely EMPTY. I had more thrills watching the coaster on TV than waiting in line for 2 hrs for a 30 second ride.Worst EXPERIENCE EVER!

It's as if you are watching a broadway show. The actors are very professional and are wonderful after their performance by welcoming pictures and speaking to their audience. It's for young and old.
