Coming up on May 3rd, Six Flags Great Adventure will be hosting their, "first-ever Autism Day at a major amusement park."

The park will be exclusively opened for families with one or more kids with autism.

One of the major issues with bringing a child with autism to an amusement park is that it can cause sensory overload, so Six Flags is going to tone it down a notch for the day.

Special arrangements include:

  • Lower light and music levels
  • Shorter lines for those who struggle with standing for a long period of time
  • Decompression areas
  • Over 100 staff members from Gersh Academy to assist the children and their families various presentations throughout the day to educate the public on what it is like to live with these disabilities.

Tickets will even be discounted to $32.99.
