Power outage shuts down Six Flags Great Adventure through Friday

JACKSON−Six Flags Great Adventure will remain closed through Friday due to a power outage within the amusement park, the park announced.

Utility crews worked to solve the problem throughout the morning. But Six Flags tweeted around 3 p.m. that Great Adventure was closed for the day and is expected to reopen at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Hurricane Harbor and Wild Safari, which are a short distance from the park, remained in operation Friday, park spokeswoman Kristin Fitzgerald said.

Chris Hoenig, spokesman for JCP&L, said the outage appears to be a problem with park-owned equipment.

“JCP&L crews have found no fault in our equipment out there,” he said.

Fitzgerald said theme park tickets for Friday were being honored at the water park. And Six Flags offered Wild Safari free to guests onsite.

Theme park tickets for Friday will also be accepted through Labor Day and Six Flags will refund any date-specific theme park admission plan, like THE FLASH Pass, she said.

Updates will be posted on the Six Flags Great Adventure website and on Twitter, Fitzgerald said.

Go at off-peak times

Certain times of year make for a cheaper Disney vacation, not only because of less expensive airfare and hotels, but for Disney-specific reasons, say the experts. 

There are no publicly available discounts on Disney World park tickets, says Kerr, but there are still options when it comes to savings. 

Anna Skamarakas, a panelist with planDisney, a Disney-sanctioned resource group, notes that Disney World has date-based pricing on park tickets, with cheaper prices available on days with lower demand.

“It might be a bit more affordable if you go at the end of August instead of July, for instance,” says Skamarakas. “You could save $10 or $15 on a one-day ticket per person.”

Going off-peak can also help you avoid crowds, and that could save you from having to pay for Disney Genie+, says Kerr. Last year, Disney got rid of its free-access FastPass+, so now, in order to skip long stand-by lines for certain attractions, park-goers have to pay $15 per person per day for Genie+, while there’s an extra charge to buy à la carte Lightning Lane access to popular rides such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. That can all add up to a family of four paying an extra $60 a day or more.

To plan your off-peak trip, Kerr recommends using the site, Touring Plans. “It will tell you the best parks to go to on your
