Six Flags Great Adventure celebrates 50 years with largest park investment in almost two decades

Six Flags Great Adventure & Wild Safari will celebrate 50 years of family fun and thrills this season with a first-of-its-kind new family roller coaster, a luxury camping experience and offroad adventure within the Wild Safari — and 50th anniversary celebrations.

“With our largest park investment in almost two decades, we are excited to offer guests of all ages compelling new experiences that make Six Flags Great Adventure the most popular theme park experience in the Northeast during our 50th Anniversary Celebration. In 2024, we will debut our 15th roller coaster, the first-of-its-kind in the Western Hemisphere; and the most unique overnight experience in the country within our 350-acre safari,” the Jackson-based park’s president, Brian Bacica, said.

With innovation in its DNA, Six Flags Great Adventure continues to excite thrill-seekers of all ages in 2024. Highlights of new additions include:

  • THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity — Presented in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and DC, the first super boomerang coaster to open in North America rushes forward and backward at nearly 60 miles per hour through a 180-degree twisted drop and zero-G roll. In a flash, it changes direction and speeds off again, backward;
  • Luxury safari experience — An authentic African lodging experience at the new Savannah Sunset Resort & Spa set within the expansive 350-acre Wild Safari Park. Overnight guests will enjoy ultra-luxurious “glamping” accommodations, scenic vistas, spa services and VIP dining, all creating an unforgettable safari getaway;
  • Safari Off-Road Adventure returns — The Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure will close this fall and reopen in 2024 as the Safari Off-Road Adventure, giving guests a guided tour offering a more personalized experience through our 350-acre safari. Guests can board safari off-road vehicles in two locations, Frontier Adventures within the theme park or at the main Wild Safari entrance;
  • Guests become a part of the adventure — Leading up to the 50th Anniversary Celebration, guests will be invited to become part of the adventure with the purchase of an anniversary brick and keepsake. These bricks will adorn a new pathway located at the theme park’s original entrance;
  • Nostalgic enhancements — Six Flags Great Adventure will add nostalgic elements that give a nod to the park’s history, including an upgrade for two original park favorites, the Log Flume and iconic Big Wheel.

Six Flags Great Adventure is also announcing the “Biggest Sale of the Year,” featuring discounts of up to 70% on season passes, tickets and more, available now through Tuesday. What sets this offer apart is that, not only can park visitors enjoy the new 2024 experiences with their season passes, they can also receive admission throughout the remainder of 2023, including access to the highly popular Six Flags Fright Fest.
