Saturday - April 1st, 2017
After an off-season that seemed to fly by, Six Flags Great Adventure opened its gates once again welcoming guests to the park's 44th season. Even though it has been less than three months since Holiday in the Park ended in January, a lot of work has taken place around the park ranging from the ongoing construction of the new Justice League Battle for Metropolis ride, to new snack stands, as well as some overall TLC to many of the park's structures and areas.
Below is a wide selection of photos from all around the theme park including pictures from an exciting walk-thru of the new Justice League ride and the surrounding Metropolis area which will premiere later this spring. It is sure to be a very popular ride and revived section of the park. Many thanks to the park's PR folks for making the tour possible!
