SIX FLAGS GREAT ADVENTURE - Jackson - Theme amusement park covers 1700 acres and includes a 450 acre drive-thru safari park where more than 1200 animals roam free.
Leader in thrill ride and coaster innovation, Six Flags has served up many industry firsts:

X -- The world's first and only 4th dimensional coaster.

The Revolution -- The world's first 360 degree looping coaster debuted at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 1976.

Shock Wave -- The world's first vertical back-to-back looping coaster, introduced at Six Flags Over Texas in 1978.

Superman The Escape -- Unveiled at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 1997, this is still the world's tallest and fastest roller coaster (and the only one to break the 100 mph speed barrier).

Batman & Robin: The Chiller -- The world's first dual-track linear induction motor (LIM) roller coaster premiered at Six Flags Great Adventure in 1997.

Medusa -- The world's first "floorless" coaster, also at Six Flags Great Adventure, 1999.

SCREAM! -- New at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2003 -- the park's Guinness Book world record 16th roller coaster.
