Six Flags Great Adventure, Wild Safari & Hurricane Harbor

Map1 Six Flags Blvd.
Jackson, NJ 08527
  • Amusement/Water Parks
  • Fall Fun


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,

NEW IN 2018: The Cyborg Cyber Spin is as dizzying as it sounds. Floorless gondolas seven stories high flip and pivot in an unpredictable combination of gravitational forces.

FALL FUN: 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.

INSIDER’S TIP: This expansive space is best navigated from back to front. Since most head to the first attractions they see upon arrival, you’ll beat the rush that reaches the area later in the day.
