The sensory-friendly event of the century returns! Gersh Academy and Custom Education Foundation (Custom Ed) are once again transforming Six Flags Great Adventure into a sensory-friendly environment for individuals on the autism spectrum.
Individuals on the spectrum often struggle with sensory overload and have a hard time processing too much touch, taste, sight and sound—which makes visiting an amusement park next to impossible. The goal of this event is to remove those obstacles so families with children on the spectrum can not only attend the park but really enjoy it.
This event is unique in that it is the only national theme park that opens its doors exclusively to the autism community for one whole day and transforms the park so they can have a wonderful experience.
