Categories

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 2015:
On your way to the fan-favorite roller coaster El Toro, don’t skip El Diablo. The bright red looping coaster rockets thrill-seekers in “face-off” seats into a back-and-forth motion before launching them into full revolutions, leaving them temporarily suspended upside down and reversing directions. For more coaster fun, get a new view on a popular ride when Batman: The Ride goes backwards (for a limited time, starting July 4).
