Six Flags Great Adventure

March 18, 2011

With the uncanny success of MTVs Jersey Shore, Seaside Heights, the small beach town on the coast of the Garden State, has seen an influx of summer tourists. While the owners of Bamboo and Karma may love all the extra attention our state is receiving, some locals may be getting sick of the Bennys.

So if the club scene isn’t for you or you want to check out possibly the only part of Jersey that doesn’t have  a reality show, head to Jackson Twp. to experience Six Flags: Great Adventure.

Here are a list of the rides you MUST go on:

1. Kingda Ka– this is the world’s tallest and fastest roller coaster and no matter how many times I have been on it, I still get butterflies while I’m waiting. Lines for this coaster tend to be VERY long, like hours long. But if you have the time to spend waiting around its worth it, although the ride itself lasts about 10 seconds.

2. El Toro – this roller coaster is made entirely out of wood and is considered one of the best wooden roller coasters in the world. The ride itself is long and exciting, and the wait in line usually isn’t that bad.

3. Nitro- this was the fastest and tallest roller coaster in the world for a while until Kingda Ka beat it out, but don’t let the loss in title fool you- Nitro is one of the best rides at the park. It runs very smooth and has a great build up as you reach the top of the main drop –

4. Superman: Ultimate Flight – For this ride you lay on your stomach so it feels like you’re flying. It’s not my personal favorite ride, but its a unique experience for a roller coaster.

    I love rollercoasters, and always like to watch videos (to get the experience of ones I haven’t been on yet, and because usually the people screaming is funny). Nitro looks great, I usually hate when a rollercoaster is too bumpy and jerks you around, but Nitro looks smooth. And I totally agree with you, I’ve been on some rollercoasters where you lie down, and it was weird!
