Visiting Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson? Make a weekend out of it with this three-day itinerary.

Friday Evening

After checking into your hotel, grab some dinner with the family at Mona Lisa Pizza, famous for its gourmet pizzas such as Vodka Pie, Buffalo Chicken Pan Pie and Lasagna Pie.

Saturday

Start your morning with a stop by Village Donut Shop, a long-time mainstay serving up hot breakfast sandwiches and freshly baked donuts, turnovers and crumb buns.

For the rest of your day, take your pick from exciting amusement park adventures. At Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari, roller coasters, carousels, go-karts, bumper cars and more await. Don’t miss the new Justice League: Battle for Metropolis 4-D thrill ride, which opened June 17, 2017. At the safari end of the park, go on an off-road adventure through a 350-acre preserve, where you’ll see exotic animals such as giraffes, elephants and tigers in an immersive safari experience. If water fun is on your wish list, make your way to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, boasting a thrilling lineup of water slides, rafting adventures and splash areas.

After a long day of fun adventures, bring the family to Cornerstone Kitchen & Tap for dinner. Fill up on everything from fresh salads and juicy burgers to upscale options such as filet au poivre and pan seared salmon, paired with one of the many craft beers on tap.

Sunday

For your last day in Jackson, be sure to stop by the beloved Jackson Diner, a 1950s-style diner with vintage décor and a menu packed with classic breakfast dishes: specialty omelets, fluffy pancakes, crunchy Belgian waffles and dense French toast.

After breakfast, spend some time at Howling Woods Farm, where you can take an hour-long tour of the wolf dog preserve and get up close with some of the rescued animals. (Don’t forget: You must make an appointment before your visit, NO walk-ins.)

Then, head over to Jackson Premium Outlets for lunch and to spend the rest of the day browsing 70 brand name stores, from Coach and Calvin Klein to Bose and Brooks Brothers, with incredible discounts offered every day.
