The World's Largest Theme Park is...in New Jersey?

When you think theme parks, Disney or Universal Studios probably comes to mind, but that might change sooner rather than later if one company gets their way. Six Flags is sick and tired of playing second fiddle to some of the amusement park big boys, so they’re going big. Like, REAL BIG.

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey is a big hit with locals within the region, and is a pretty decent theme park option if you ask us. However, it’s about to grow to an international title to attract more international guests; if things go according to plan, it soon could hold the title of world’s largest theme park.

Starting as soon as next year, park officials are going to combine the different sections and areas of the park (like the animal safari, theme park, and water park), and that might just help the park grab the title of the world’s largest theme park. We understand that they’re getting bigger based on a technicality—and not by adding 10 coasters in the offseason—but it still seems like an interesting idea.

The biggest changes will be at the park’s drive-thru safari, as now the park is scheduled to take the wheel. Visitors will be shuttled about in open air vehicles driven by park officials, and the park is also promising a little more direct interaction with the critters—like petting or feeding them.

All these updates and upgrades are probably going to cost quite a bit of cash, but as of right now, it looks like there are no plans to raise the price of admission for 2013. That can always change, but if you want to lock in your pass you can do so this fall.
