Built in 1974, Great Adventure was the larger-than-life dream of a larger-than-life personality, Warner LeRoy. The consummate showman, LeRoy had visions of a fantasy world of rides, shows, and animals in a beautiful and unspoiled woodland setting. In 1977, Great Adventure became a member of the Six Flags family of theme parks and has continued to grow ever since, with bigger and better attractions added each season. Six Flags Great Adventure revisits some of the park's past attractions, like the Garden of Marvels, Big Balloon, and Super Teepee, and illustrates the park's evolution into a state-of-the-art theme park enjoyed by a new generation of guests.

Editorial Reviews

In June 2009, Six Flags, Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, thus raising the apprehension and nostalgia of the many fans of its Jackson, New Jersey, theme park. First opened in 1974, Six Flags Great Adventure has attracted millions of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania residents over the years with its animal and water parks, its towering roller coasters and other rides. This Images of America pictorial captures the ever-changing face of this popular amusement park.
