From Anthony MurphyThe Gold pass might not be needed, but I am not sure SFGAdv will be open in March due to it being cold in the Northwest. Check on when it is open first!

I would recommend that you go in mid-May when the weather is nice and the kids are still in school. However, the crowds should be lite anytime before Memorial Day(May 31). If you use the Flash Pass, the crowds shouldn't be a problem either way.
As far as car rental goes, if you are staying in Manhattan, I would not recommend it. Traffic in the city is terrible. Plus, finding parking is a chore or very expensive.
Our mass transit system is terrific. You can get almost anywhere in NYC rather easily. Also, you can buy a relatively inexpensive unlimited usage pass for your stay.
Now, Great Adventure is not in NYC, but is a 2-hour drive away in central New Jersey. However, the Port Authority in Manhattan has a bus that goes there at around 8AM for a low price of around $20 round trip.
I wish you an early welcome to my fair city. You'll have a great time. Hope I could be of some help.
