Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (9/14/17) Six Flags Great Adventure is set to unleash the biggest and scariest Fright Fest in history this fall. The Northeast’s Largest Halloween party, which runs weekends and select days September 16 through October 31, features more than 25 Halloween-themed shows and attractions. Families can enjoy Thrills By Day with all of their favorite rides and family-friendly entertainment, and experience Fright By Night with terrifying mazes, scare zones, spooktacular shows and thrilling rides after dark. In 2017, Six Flags unveils two newly-themed haunted mazes, three new shows and a new scare zone.
New this season:
Lady of the Lake Cemetery – Great Adventure’s folklore inspired the newest scare zone, which will surely bring a chill to every guest. Guinevere, a drowned bride cursed by the Jersey Devil, has haunted Jackson’s Great Lake for more than a hundred years. Guests can try to spot her spirit in the flowing, white dress as they walk through the mist and monster-filled graveyard.
Aftermath – A post-apocalyptic world becomes a reality as guests try to survive this twisting haunted maze crawling with barbaric, mutant scavengers. This raw experience of a global catastrophe makes nightmares come true. Extra fee required to participate.
Wicked Woods – Fables and folklore from the dark and haunted forests aren’t just for story time anymore. Evil creatures come to life under the creaky and gnarled branches as guests try to escape the night shadows. Extra fee required to participate.
Unleashed – Guests will be spellbound by this new theatrical production featuring incredible acrobatics, dance, music and feats of magic premiering in Showcase Theatre.
Corvyx – Alternative electronic pop artist Corvyx is taking YouTube by storm through a combination of haunting covers, visually stunning videos and original music. Armed with a wicked style and powerhouse voice, Corvyx will rock Fright Fest during his residency near the new Wicked Brew bar on Friday and Saturday nights.
Ignite – A hypnotizing and dazzling display of fire spinning and illusion will have guests glued to the pavement watching every heart-stopping trick. This performance, located next to the Bumper Cars in Adventure Alley, will really see if guests can take the heat.
(9/9/17) Sad news for Six Flags Great Adventure this week, as a 19-year old local young man who worked at the park as an apprentice electrician was killed in an accident this week. He was stringing lights up at the park early on Friday morning when he was struck "by a lift truck'. He was airlifted to a local hospital for treatment where he passed away on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and co-workers.
2018 - Cyborg Cyber Spin - (8/31/17) A new thrilling and unique ride is coming to the park - Cyborg Cyber Spin. This unique creation is like nothing you've ever seen in a theme park before, offering a spinning, twisting, looping gyroscope of motions. I'm not sure who is making this ride, but it looks a lot like that Tourbillion creation from ABC Rides, a one of a kind portable ride creation seen in a few fairs over in Asia in videos that went viral for awhile. Bravo to Six Flags for bringing this or a very similar ride style to the US market for what looks like an incredible new ride to the park's lineup.
(8/21/17) Six Flags Great Adventure has posted a couple teaser posters in the park hinting about what is to come in 2018. The posters aren't too far from the new Justice League ride and show off the logo of STAR. Labs from DC Comics along with a phone number you can call and hear a message. The posted also lists the names of the parents of DC hero Cyborg, Silas and Elinore Stone.
