Here's When Amusement Parks Open for the Season in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

With warmer days ahead, amusement park season is just around the corner. There's no better feeling than zipping through the air on a speedy roller coaster, chilling on a carousel, or watching the little ones enjoy low-key kiddie rides. But, just when do amusement parks open for the season? We've got the scoop, whether you're hoping to catch ocean views and sandy beaches at the Jersey Shore's boardwalk amusement parks, like Jenkinson's and Castaway Cove, or you are dreaming of high-velocity thrill rides at mega parks like Six Flags Great Adventure and Dorney Park.

We've rounded up the opening days for the most popular amusement parks in New Jersey and nearby. Most theme parks have safety protocols in place, including mask requirements, limited capacity, and online ticketing requirements. Be sure to click through to each park's website for the latest information, ticket deals, and season passes. 

You can also keep up with more New Jersey attraction openings in our roundup of what's open Now in New Jersey.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at a venue that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
