One word…ROLLERCOASTERS!!! (BTW, I wasn’t sure if rollercoaster was 1 word or two words..but dictionary.com confirmed that it can be either 🙂 Just an FYI for those that might be curious like I ).
This weekend, we decided to take a trip out to Six Flags in Jackson, NJ for our one year wedding anniversary. It was about an hour and a half drive. I hadn’t been on a rollercoaster since Six Flags in LA in 2003, so I was super excited! The Six Flags in NJ is actually a 3 in 1 package! It has a theme park, drive thru Safari and a water park. All 3 can’t be really covered in 1 day, but if you go early enough, you can definitely couple the Safari with either the theme park or water park.
The worst park of theme parks is the wait time for all the rides..some of these rides have up to a 3 hour wait. So here is a word of advise…get the flash pass! Totally worth it! We were able get through almost all the roller coasters in the park in less than 4 hours. I am not going to say much because I don’t want to ruin the ride experience for other people, but definitely try the Nitro and the Kingda Ka.
Next, we went to check out the drive thru Safari. If you have theme park tickets, the safari only costs $10 per person. Apparently its the biggest drive thru Safari outside Africa (4.5 miles). We stopped plenty to look at the animals, so it took us a whole hour and a half to complete it. Its a combination of animals out in the open, and animals in enclosures. The obvious ones such as tigers, lions, elephants are in enclosures, but the giraffes, rhinos, zebras, bisons, bears are out in the open and even walk up to your car. Check out all the pictures and videos below. Overall, a day spent well with tons to do and lots of fun!
