Attraction | "Six Flags Great Adventure"

This was our first trip to Six Flags Great Adventure. We often visit Six Flags over in Georgia. The drive is about 2 hours from Atlantic City. We did not get there until noon.

It had some great music, but of course, like other clubs we go to, once they start with the techno, it's time to head out. We were there a good 2 hours, just enough to have some fun.
