New Jersey Theme Parks

Your trek through New Jersey is not to be a boring one if you’re on the Garden State Parkway. Whether you’re traveling with kids, or just happen to be a daredevil yourself, enjoy several amusement parks along the way.

Plenty of adventure is found just east of the Garden State Parkway along the Raritan Bay. For a free day of fun where you can still use your outside voice, head to the Fun Time America indoor amusement park. A 40,000-square-foot playground, Fun Time America features arcades, rides, laser tag, and the Cliff Hanger Rock Wall.

For more fun along the Garden State Parkway, head for the Keansburg Amusement Park & Runaway Rapids Water Park – just six miles northeast of Hazlet. Keansburg Amusement Park features plenty of kiddie rides, family rides, and thrill rides all waiting for the seats to fill. Or if you’re looking to cool off this summer, head to the Runaway Rapids Family Water Park for exciting slides like Mountain Blast and Volcanic Revenge.

Yet another theme park awaits along the Garden State Parkway. Just 20 miles west of the parkway lies Six Flags Great Adventure & Wild Safari – northwest of Lakewood. Stay in the car and trek through the 350-acre Wild Safari – the “largest drive-thru safari outside of Africa” – along the five-mile paved trail. The neighboring Six Flags features kiddie, family and thrill rides as well, including BATMAN: The Ride and SUPERMAN: Ultimate Flight.

But it’s not all amusement parks in central New Jersey. Visit the Strand Center for the Arts in Lakewood, and catch a live theatrical or musical performance in this historic theater.
