  Rajesh Kumar Rana       Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Which country do you think has the most amusement parks? Of course in the USA. Almost every state has its own roller coaster and water park parks. Most tourists don't know that some of the biggest amusement parks are just outside of New York City. Especially for you, we have compiled a list of the most popular places.

1. Six Flags Amusement Park

One of the largest amusement parks on the planet is located an hour from New York. In fact, these are as many as three parks in one:

  • Six Flags Great Adventure Amusement Park
  • Hurricane Harbor Water Park
  • Car Safari Park Wild Safari

The exact address:

1 Six Flags Blvd, Jackson Township, NJ 08514


Tickets to the park can be purchased at the box office and on the official Six Flags Great Adventure website. You can save up to $49 when you buy tickets online.


The park is open seasonally:

  • 7 days a week from April to November
  • There are festive events in the park on Halloween and during the Christmas season.

What entertainment awaits you at Six Flags


The amusement park has several categories of slides - family, children's and breathtaking.

What do you want more: spend time with the kids on a quiet family carousel or rush at a speed of 200 km/h down the highest rollercoaster in the world? At Six Flags there are attractions for every taste.

DC Comics Heroes and Halloween

The park features some of DC's favorite superheroes in the Movietown section.

In addition, the park hosts the Fright Fest each fall. Where you can take part in the seasonal Halloween celebration, where you will find entertainment for the whole family.


If you prefer water activities, then head to the Hurricane Harbor New Jersey outdoor  water park, which includes several high-speed slides, children's areas, a wave pool, and a lazy river with a slow movement of water that goes around the entire territory. The park has cafes and eateries with American food.

This is a great getaway for the whole family. There is a children's area with slides for kids and waterfalls. Please note that the water park is only open from early June until early September.


Perhaps you would like to see giraffes? At Six Flags, this is possible - guests can explore the most interesting and exotic animals in the 1.4 square kilometer reserve! It is important to know that such a trip to the world of wildlife can  only be made by private car. This is an unusual zoo - here every visitor looks at the animals walking in the park from the window of his car.

Visiting the famous Wild Safari usually takes 1.5 to 3 hours and includes 1200 animals from six continents, including elephants, rhinos, tigers, giraffes, lions, ostriches, zebras, bears, wolves and deer.
