Best Six Flags Great Adventure Roller Coasters

Best roller coasters at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ.

The Top Ten

1 El Toro

It's a legendary wooden coaster a must ride in my book

Anyone who's been on this knows this packs the biggest punch by far in the park. The first drop and airtime on this ride is insane and it's incredibly smooth for a wooden coaster which makes it a very enjoyable ride, not like your average wooden coaster. The speed on this feels much faster than the stats say, and it's been proven before that this coaster sometimes reaches speeds of 75 mph instead of 70. Best ride at Six Flags and best wooden roller coaster in the world. - yeyodistributor

Real ranking should go:
1. El Toro
2. Nitro
3. Kingda Ka
4. Superman UF
5. Bizarro
6. Batman TR
7. Skull Mountain
8. Green Lantern
9. The Dark Knight Coaster
10. Blackbeards Lost Treasure Train

Runaway Mine Train is so lame that I even put the junior coaster above it. Nonetheless RMT, BLTT and that other junior coaster nobody rides aren't good rides. Every other coaster in the park I find enjoyable. Green Lantern starts to get annoying and punishes the legs about a minute after the first drop but it's not bad. TDKC is pretty cool but way too short. Skull Mountain is a classic and despite it only being 50 ft tall it's a great coaster, much better than TDK. Batman is a great coaster too but a little too tight and could get very intense and uncomfortable. Bizarro used to be my favorite until I started to prefer roller coasters with high speeds and big hills and air times over inversions. Still a one of a kind, glad they got rid of the annoying sounds ...more - yeyodistributor

I guess it could be considered it even though I hated it - Starbreeze

2 Kingda Ka

I've been on this one 5 times - Ihateschool

It can go up to 128 miles per hour which makes it the 2nd fastest rolleroaster in the world

Kingda-Ka is by far the most thrilling ride in the park.

Nitro should not be number 1. It should be number 3 behind Kingda Ka and El Toro.

3 Nitro

My favorite in the park, it's pretty intense in the back row. What puts it above El Toro for me is : it's taller, faster, the restraints are small, and it's in an open area. The first hill on nitro is way scarier/more intense than El Toro

I prefer Mako at Sea World Orlando, it has both theming and good location ( its near a lake).

My favorite coaster of any park, you can get some insane air time

The floater airtime is no better anywhere else

4 Bizarro

Just as amazing as Batman

Second best floorless rollercoaster

Top Speed: 61 MPH
Height: 142 ft.
First Drop Height: 132 ft.
Inversions: 7
Bizarro, in my opinion, is the best inverting ride at SFGA. Formerly Medusa up until it's 2008 makeover, this looper offers a combination of thrilling loops and special effects to create a ride that overtakes it's nemesis, Superman, as the better ride. Flamethrowers, lasers, and famous lines from movies are just the beginning on this baby. Bizarro truly is #1 amongst inverted coasters at SFGA, at it lets you know in a big way.

5 Batman: The Ride

With all the loops and twists it has to be the best ride there.

The second coaster beginners should ride. It's only 100 ft, the drop is 84.5 ft, and if you're scared just keep your head back and scream (eyes closed or not.) - Starbreeze

Top Speed: 50 MPH
Height: 105 ft
Inversions: 5
It has it's flaws, but Batman: The Ride is a classic and a solid inverting coaster. It feels faster than 50 MPH, and though it is also over far too fast, the 5 inversions certainly pack a punch. It's a little jerky, but Batman is still, 21 years later, worth a ride or two every visit to SFGA.

6 Superman: Ultimate Flight

This one is the best for the beginners as it's slow, graceful, feels like you're flying, no stomach drop feeling, 100 foot drop (I can handle those), even the pretzel loop isn't that high, and you just get pushed back like Gravitron or Round-Up during that. SUPERMAN! - Starbreeze

Top Speed: 60 MPH
Height: 106 ft.
First Drop Height: 100 ft.
Inversions: 2
Superman: Ultimate Flight is unique in that it's a flying coaster, or that your turned on your stomach throughout the coaster. This fits the Superman theme perfectly. The ride is not the tallest or the fastest, but it is fun throughout the whole ride and has its major moment: the pretzel loop. The feeling of being pressed into your seat and feeling like your falling through the air on the loop is extraordinary. This roller coaster will make you feel like the Man of Steel, Superman.

7 Green Lantern Green Lantern is the name of a number of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Movie is bad enough

Top Speed: 63 MPH
Height: 154 ft.
First Drop Height: 144 ft.
°of First Drop: 45°
Inversions: 5
The stand-up coaster is tall, fast, and thrilling, but it's best to do this ride early. If you ride it after a few hours of walking, your legs might be in a little bit of pain. Positioning is important as well, or else your... Area... might be in some pain as well. However, if all goes well, Green Lantern is a solid coaster and a unique experience.

8 Skull Mountain

Ride this in the back. Ejector air is awesome - coasterjunkie196

Another coaster I rode during my class trip - Starbreeze

This is the only coaster I rode in the park during my 2010 visit

Note: Rolling Thunder would be in this spot, but sadly it has been demolished.R.I.P. Rolling Thunder.

It's a dark indoor coaster and the feeling like your going to fall off the ride is fun.

9 The Dark Knight Coaster

I went on this twice during my class trip - Starbreeze

It's fun, but it's also a major disappointment. Six Flags could have done so much more with the Dark Knight theme, yet the result was a wild mouse type coaster that failed to bring any thrill factor. It's worth a ride, but nothing special (even though it should have been)

10 Joker

This one is awesome but tons of twists and turns - Ihateschool

The Contenders

11 Runaway Mine Train

I did a clone of this called Canyon Bomber at Six Flags Great Escape. Nothing special. - Starbreeze

Even though it’s just a family coaster, it is special because it is the oldest ride there.

It's a classic, though it's not very thrilling. More of a family coaster then anything. Worth a ride.

This one is boring because it is for children - Ihateschool

12 Blackbeard's Lost Treasure Train

Now called Harley Quinn - Maddox121
