Built in 1974, Great Adventure was the larger-than-life dream of a larger-than-life personality, Warner LeRoy. The consummate showman, LeRoy had visions of a fantasy world of rides, shows, and animals in a beautiful and unspoiled woodland setting. In 1977, Great Adventure became a member of the Six Flags family of theme parks and has continued to grow ever since, with bigger and better attractions added each season. Six Flags Great Adventure revisits some of the parkas past attractions, like the Garden of Marvels, Big Balloon, and Super Teepee, and illustrates the parkas evolution into a state-of-the-art theme park enjoyed by a new generation of guests.
