But the younger crowd is not left out. With over 30 kids rides, your little ones can hang out with the likes of Yosemite Sam, Wiley Coyote, Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny all day long and never get tired of them.
When you feel like taking a break from the rides, there is a wide variety of great entertainment right in the park. From concerts to animal shows to street performers to parades, you and your kids will thrill to the variety of fun to watch. You can check out their calendar to choose the best day to head over and enjoy your kind of fun. Names like Gaven Degraw or Third Day are some names that have headlined in the past, so check the calendar to see what's up for 2015. In addition to big stars, GA has lots of fun concerts and shows on small stages throughout the park.
As if rides, concerts and great entertainment were not enough, Six Flags Great Adventure adds a spectacular Safari Park to its list of adventurous fun. This is the largest drive through safari outside of Africa, comprising 350 acres with 1,200 animals in residence.
