GET SCARED at Six Flags Great Adventure Fright Fest
We’ve always enjoyed the fun that comes from visiting Six Flags Great Adventure’s media events.

Her glowing review left me wanting to visit there with my family and check it out for myself! After a poor experience at another amusement park only a few weeks ago, visiting Fantasy Island was a breath of fresh air by comparison. It was a fun, light-hearted adventure for the whole family.

WAVE Hello to Unforgettable Adventures: Breakwater Beach Waterpark in Seaside Heights
My family loves waterparks! We have been to many, but have never gone to Breakwater Beach Waterpark, so we loved having this opportunity to explore a Seaside Heights water park.

We had 4 boys with us, ranging in age from 9 to 13; my 2 boys and my 2 nephews.
