If you visit six flags new jersey make sure you go to the Safari, the line is long, but is worthy. My husband don't like making lines, but this line he said he would do it again.

Being a local (20 minutes away) I am very fond of Great Adventure. I usually have a season pass and visit with friends and family a few times a year. I must say, for adrenaline junkies, this is a great park. The roller coasters are second to none, and the new Drop of Doom gives you a great dose of adrenaline. Gentle rides I cannot comment on being as I am usually there for the coasters. The few cons would obviously be prices, I recommend eating outside of the park, and the lines for the rides are usually long and in the heat. The express pass is rather expensive but might be worth it as the waits can get lengthy. I am a universal addict but Six Flags is great for a close to home thrill, one of the most famous six flags parks, and some of the best rides in the country. Will be a returning customer for years to come

With it being one of the most crowded parks in the six flags chain you would think that they would have the crowd control sorted out by now, the ealry entry into the park for the gold pass holders is ridiculous, they should have a separate line clearly marked, every one goes into the park and then crowds behind the ropes by the fountain, then 10 minutes before anyone else the gold pass members are allowed to enter, only problem is you can't get to the security guard because of the 100s of other people crowding, plus they think it's there turn to get in without the pass, total confusion. It was so much better when they let you through the candy store with the pass
This being my home park and I visit at least once a week, it is nice to see the staff seemed to have been better trained in customer service, but ride operations still have a long way to go.
I stopped by last night after a trip to six flags America just to ride zumanjaro in the dark, after waiting an hour in the single rider lane because of all the families in it, it's a single rider lane for a reason. No you can't ride with your son, you should have waited in the regular lane.
Anyway as the night came to a close I noticed how much quicker the loading and unloading became, the ride ops where running to un buckle seat belts and usher people off and on the ride, once the park closed and people were still on line, the ride ops became frantically fast. So you want to go home now, so now you start to work. If they worked at this speed all day (as they do in cedar point ) the waits and lines would be so much better.
