Six Flags Great Adventure, home to twelve innovative and exciting coasters, celebrates National Roller Coaster Day August 16, 2014 with a thrilling lineup of roller coaster special events, exclusive ride times and social media announcements.
The day kicks off with exclusive ride time on the record-breaking Kingda Ka, the world’s tallest and fastest coaster, plus a bonus of the brand new Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, the world’s tallest and fastest drop ride, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. All guests are welcome with valid theme park admission or Season Pass.
All visitors are encouraged to wear their favorite Great Adventure coaster shirt to win prizes such as free tickets, Season Passes and coaster memorabilia from the “Six Flags Prize Patrol.” In addition, the Prize Patrol will make surprise visits to all of the coasters throughout the day and offer double rides to entire trains of lucky guests.
Guests can also celebrate National Roller Coaster Day with interactive scavenger hunts and competitions on Twitter and Instagram. The hashtag #sfcoasters will be used for Twitter fans to connect with people enjoying the event at all Six Flags locations.
“Great Adventure is home to three of the world’s top ranked coasters — Kingda Ka, El Toro and Nitro,” said John Fitzgerald, park president. “There is no better way to celebrate this special day than by getting your adrenaline rush with fellow thrill seekers at the world’s largest theme park.”
Gates will open at 9 a.m. For more information, visit www.sixflags.com/greatadventure or call 732/928-2000.
