Six Flags Great Adventure New Jersey Flash PassSix Flags Great Adventure: I need info about Flash Passes at Six flas Great Adventure in New Jersey
From Justin RoseHi, My buddy and I are are going to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey and we are thinking about getting the gold flash pass. Has anyone got that at this park before and can answer a few questions for me? If we get a gold pass what would be the longest line we could expect on a Monday late in June? Do they sell out of them fast because as soon as we go in to the park when they open we would like to try and go ride Kingda Ka first while the lines are short but we don't want to miss out on buying the golden flash pass. If anyone can give me as much info as you can on the flash pass here that would be great. Thanks for the info!

From Lawrence SmithI was there last year on a Monday in June. I also got the gold flash pass & with that, everything was basically a "walk-on." Kingda Ka, El Toro, Medusa (now Bizarro), Nitro, all the coasters we didn't have a wait. As for selling out, they have quite a few flash passes. In all my years of visiting the park, I have never witnessed a sell-out of the passes. Hope this helps!

From Justin RoseThanks Lawrence for giving me your thoughts. Can I ask you if you got the Gold pass or just the regular flash pass? Do you think its worth the extra money for the gold pass? Its much more money but I think it might be worth it. Thanks again.

From Lawrence SmithI got the gold pass because it cuts the wait limit down by 75%. With the regular pass, they give you the return time for the normal wait. Gold Flash Pass is the way to go. But I say go & peek out the crowds first. On some days, you might not even need a flash pass.

From amy locklandI went on a Monday in early July last summer and never waited more than 30 min. to ride ANYTHING! It was great! Be sure to check the crowds before wasting your money!

From Justin RoseThank you guys for all your input. Maybe we will do what you guys are saying and just see how the crowds look that day. I just didn't want to not get a flash pass right when they open and then have them sell out. I read somewhere that they sell out pretty often at this park.

From Justin RoseOne more question.... Does anyone know when most kids get out of school there in New Jersey? Or if that sixflags gets a lot of schools going there at the end of the school year? Wondering if it will be really busy because of school being out or because of schools going there at the end of the year. Thanks again

From Eli KatzmanIf it helps, we (Montgomery County in MD) get out on the 16th. But Cinci and Atlanta schools are out. I have no clue how this helps, I just know it could.

From Justin RoseI just got back from the park and we ended up getting the gold flash pass. It was expensive but so worth it. Pretty much walked right on to every ride with in 5 mins. Kingda Ka was closed most of the day but because we bought this we were able to ride it like 6 times still. El Toro was sooooooo fun too! Loved that ride!
