Ever dream about what a dance music fantasyland would look like? It probably had huge rollercoasters and thrill rides, carnival games, and of course, music from your favorite DJs. On October 6 it all becomes a reality when NYC-based promoter Area Event teams with renowned theme park company Six Flags to present Electric Adventure at Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.
Electric Adventure is one of the most unique dance music experiences you’ll ever have. Each ticket for the event will include the show (featuring Alesso, Arty, Super Mash Bros +more) plus admission to all the Great Adventure rides including the mighty Kingda Ka – the tallest and second fastest roller coaster in the world.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, Electric Adventure will also be participating in the park’s “Fright Fest.” During the Halloween season, the entire Six Flags Great Adventure theme park is re-decorated with spider webs, smoke machines and other Halloween related decorations. Workers dress up in scary costumes and walk around to frighten guests. One of the most popular attractions at Fright Fest every year is the theatrical production of “Dead Man’s Party;” a live dance show with popular music that draws hundreds of viewers for every showing and has attained an almost cult-like local following (local dance music talent will also be performing on the “Dead Man stage”). Area Event will make Great Adventure a true dance playground by brining in an L’Acoustics V-Dosc Sound System, LED wall, lasers and plenty of other surprises.
After successfully throwing their first dance event at Six Flags Mexico with Dash Berlin in May, Six Flags was ready to enter the US market. Six Flags Great Adventure is the largest park in the Six Flags system and serves some of the largest markets in the country – New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. Electric Adventure marks the first EDM show at a Six Flags theme park in the USA.
Tickets for Electric Adventure are being sold in General Admission and VIP tiers. General Admission includes access to the park, all rides and admission to the concert areas. VIP Admission has multiple package options that include safari rides, line skip for the rides, parking + meet and greet. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 24, at noon EST through Wantickets.com (GA+ VIP), Ticketmaster.com (GA Only) and AreaEvent.com.
