Six Flags Great Adventure: Looking for smaller parks near SFGAdv

I am going to Six Flags Great Adventure this summer with my family. We only have a few days which limits our normal trip of 4-5 parks, but we will have time to visit a smaller park nearby. Are there any unique parks near Great Adventure?

We are looking for more than a family fun park with a kiddie coaster. Also, we have been to all the "big" parks in the area including Hershey, Coney Island, Dorney, and Morey's Piers already.

Hopefully some locals can help us out!

Well, Pre-Sandy, I would have suggested the Seaside ride piers. The Boardwalk has re-opened, but th epiers have not. Clementon is about an hour and a half south of GAdv and features an outstanding wood coaster, a better-than-average log flume, and a decent water park.

Yeah, There's Keansburg; kind of a beach type park, too. But yeah, Clementon is bigger.

Mike, I think Tyler is taking a previous joke of mine and is applying it to this thread. Sure says something about originality though.

Well, the idea of "----- wins, end of thread," is usually associated with a remark that's so funny/appropriate that it can't be followed up. So it's certainly bad usage here, to go along with the lack of originality.

But whatevah..........
