Six Flags Great Adventure is an amusement park located in Jackson, New Jersey. It is owned and operated by Six Flags. The park contains eleven themed areas, three of which are especially built for small children. The park also included, up until 2012, the world's largest drive-through safari, which is being renovated for the 2013 season. Six Flags Great Adventure also features the world's tallest roller coaster, Kingda Ka, and the winner of the 2012 Golden Ticket Award for best wooden roller coaster, El Toro.

The video game RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 contained a recreation of the park as it looked in 2002.
