Conveniently located between several east-coast metropolitan areas, including New York City and Philadelphia, Six Flags Great Adventure is easy to get to from many places on the East Coast.

With a roster of 76 attractions as of 2006, Six Flags Great Adventure is home to several of the most heart-racing rides around. Six Flags is home to Kingda Ka, the world's fastest and tallest roller coaster. The roller coaster shoots its riders to a staggering 456 feet into the air at a speed of 128 mph in only 3.5 seconds. Kingda Ka then hurtles riders spiralling down toward earth, with a total ride time of a mere 30 seconds from beginning to end.

Six Flags Great Adventure is divided into various sections, each with its own themed rides, food, and attractions. Sections like the Mexican-themed Plaza del Carnaval feature El Toro and Rolling Thunder, both wooden roller coasters, along with many smaller similarly themed rides. Six Flags Great Adventure also supplies its guests with many places to eat, including Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Papa John's pizza.
