Last year’s Autism Day at Six Flags Great Adventure

In 2018, we made history with the first ever Autism Day at Six Flags Great Adventure. Over 5,000 people were given a day of worry-free sensory-friendly fun in one of the greatest theme parks in the country. Due to the overwhelming success and the feedback we heard from families, we’re back to bring another fun-filled day for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families.
