Essential Information

1 Six Flags Blvd.
Jackson, NJ 08527

732-928-1821

The largest Six Flags park in the U.S. has more than a dozen rollercoasters, three kids’ areas and the Hurricane Harbor water park. Animal experiences include the drive-thru African Wild Safari with giraffes and tigers, the Dolphin Discovery show, and Safari Discoveries — where you can walk through the Parakeet Paradise aviary, watch an Extreme Raptors Bird Show, “aww” over adorable animal babies and pet hedgehogs and other small creatures. Kids can also go on new jungle-themed rides in a separate, revamped Safari Kids zone. New in 2015: The Looping Dragon spiraling coaster joins the newest thrill ride, Zumanjaro Drop of Doom, a 415-foot drop amid Kingda Ka coaster,

Fall: Bring the kids before sunset for spooky, not scary, fun, including Halloween shows and a trick-or-treat trail through the park. Young kids are invited to wear costumes. The scary nighttime FrightFest is intended for teens & adults.

New in 2014:
Do you think you’re brave enough to tackle the world’s tallest drop ride? Meet Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, a ride (opening mid-June) where guests shoot up 41 stories (415 feet!) in breathtaking 30 seconds before plummeting to the ground at 90mph. Adding to the intensity, Zumanjaro’s built within the drop of Kingda Ka, North America’s tallest, fastest coaster. As you wait in line, keep your eyes fixed on the adjacent safari sections for native African Anubis baboons or the park’s three newest lion cubs.
