Six Flags Great Adventure announced they finally have an opening day since the shut-down of the state because of Covid-19. It will be the first time Six Flags opens for the 2020 season.

As we try to get back to some kind of normal in New Jersey, this is a great step in Ocean County and New Jersey with Six Flags Great Adventure opening.

The World’s Ultimate Thrill Park has announced plans to open for the 2020 season. Six Flags Great Adventure and Hurricane Harbor will operate with reduced attendance levels and in preview mode beginning Friday, July 3rd, 2020.

The park will open to MEMBERS and SEASON PASS HOLDERS exclusively on July 3rd.

Six Flags Great Adventure will be open to the GENERAL PUBLIC beginning Saturday, July 4, 2020. The park will then gradually increase attendance levels throughout the month.

Six Flags Great Adventure will follow all safety measures and hygiene protocols, including several new advanced technology systems to protect guests and employees. CLICK HERE for more information.
