Six Flags Great Adventure, New Jersey

From what we knew about Six Flags Great Adventure it was going to be a busy day, so we decided to arrive at the park early.  We got there 30 minutes before the park opened and were able to park in the handicapped section of the lot, which was really close.  We then had to wait amid all the other park goers until the park opened.  Our first stop was guest relations to obtain James' disabled pass.  Then we headed towards the way back of the park to get on the Safari Off Road Adventure since this attraction can have wait times up to 3 hours.  We were extremely fortunate to be able to walk right up and immediately board.

Our tour guide was very entertaining and shared a lot of information with us about all of the animals during the tour.  Since it was in the morning and cool enough we saw every single animal awake and playing.  Some even came right up to the tour bus.

Daniel and I were extremely impressed with this park.  They had two large kid areas with rides for the kids under 54 inches.  They even had a small roller coaster our entire family was able to ride.  Our one complaint with the kid areas is that it seemed to take a long time to get the children on and off the rides.  

The park was very clean and there was plenty of bathrooms.  There was a good variety of food places disbursed throughout the park.  Here we are eating lunch.

They also had several thrill rides for those over 54 inches.  Alex was the only one able to go on those rides with Daniel.  Although waiting for them was incredibly hard for the other kids, we broke it up throughout the day so everyone was able to do something.

And last but not least, Daniel's all-time favorite {wooden} roller coaster...El Toro.

After 8 hours of fun we were ready to head back to the trailer.  We had a great time at this park and would definitely return if we had the opportunity.  For now, we'd better get some rest because tomorrow is a driving day.  We are headed to the Maryland/Washington, D.C. area.
