Six Flags Great Adventure closes after power outage
JACKSON, N.J. - Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey announced that it was closing for the day on Friday after a power outage had originally forced them to delay its opening.
"The theme park will remain closed for the rest of the day," the theme park said in a tweet. "Crews are working diligently to restore power, and the park is expected to open at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow."
Guests who had tickets for Friday will be able to use them through Labor Day.
