If you love high speeds, heart pounding excitement and great musical entertainment, then Six Flags Great Adventure near NYC is the perfect destination for you this summer. Throughout July, August and September, there are several concert events that suit every music genre fan. Everything from Latin dancing to Reggae sounds is featured this summer.
At Great Adventure, you can enjoy all of the fast-paced coasters, exciting shows and great entertainment that every Six Flags park has. Try the new GREEN LANTERN ride, and overcome your fears with this twisting, 15-story ride. Shoot up into the skies, 45 stories high, on the tallest coaster in the world – and the fastest in the continent, Kingda Ka. The all-new swing ride, SkyScreamer, will really give you something to scream about as you spin around the tower at 40 miles per hour. There is a variety of family and kid rides, also, for guests coming for the concerts with younger children.
Then, settle in for the music event. This month, the Broadway cast of “Jersey Boys” comes to Adventure Alley. Free giveaways will be handed out during this all-day celebration. Also coming in July is the MQB Mira Quién Baila Nueva York show, similar to the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars.”
In August, check out Grammy winner Pat Benatar, whose hits “Love is a Battlefield,” “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “We Belong” still rock the airwaves today. Later, Barrington Levy, Konshens and I-Octane join together for a special “The Best of Reggae” event. Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band come on August 18 to raise money for the Gary Sinise Foundation. This organization honors soldiers, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.
