Six Flags Hurricane Harbor opens this weekend in NJ
One of the largest waterparks in the region, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, is set to open this weekend (May 20) with new attractions and old favorites.
The park will operate several of its signature attractions while debuting new guest enhancements in preparation for the summer season.
Hurricane Harbor will operate on weekends, May 20 through June 11. Daily operation will run from June 17 through Sept. 4.
According to a statement from the park, the new additions for 2023 include:
Enhanced Menus – Guests will see more diverse options featured within the water park. Items include jerk chicken sandwiches, Caribbean salad, bacon wrapped pork kabob, dole soft serve and more.
VIP Lounges – Guests looking for a premiere experience can upgrade to a private VIP lounging area with access to games and televisions.
Splash Island – Coming this summer, kids will delight in the brand-new tree house play structure. With more than 50 play features, young families will love the mini slides and curtain waterfalls. But no treehouse is complete without that gigantic water bucket perched high above and always ready to soak the splash-seekers below.
Seven Brand New Slides – Coming this summer, guests will find seven brand new colorful slides meant for smaller riders. The addition of Cowabunga, Jellyfish Twist (two slides), RipCurl, Shark Attack, Splashin’ Seal, and Stingray Racer bring the perfect number of drops and twists for little ones seeking a gentle thrill.
