The distance is probably the same amount but you'll be on the highway almost all the way so either the same amount of time or less I'd think.

BTW, where ya visiting from?

Thanks a lot buddy! Are you sure tho if I bring a coke can I can save 60 bucks? It doesnt say anything on the site..

By the way any coke can work?

its gotta be a coca cola can that has the six flags offer on it, but they almost all do, it would be worth it to by a 6 pack or go to quick check and look for one with the deal.. its a big savings

:thumbsup:
The can is easily marked with the offer. Do like Langsgirl sed and go into any convenience store WAWA & 7Eleven are a little more common in SE Jersey than QuikChek but anywhere should have the cans. Seek and ye shall find.

This week has been rainy, but it's got to end! :pray:

Yah but 195 has cops all over the place so I'd be careful on that stretch!

BTW, that map you posted is with backroads, I'd just continue on the Parkway and then to 195 as mentioned earlier.



The troopers posted to I-195 are the newbies. But there can be a lot of them. The NJSP barracks is at the east end of 195 in Wall Twp, near the Sea Girt police academy.

'bout the same maybe 15 minutes longer.

Fun Boardwalk there.

Good beach.

There are hotels on the beach there, but it is "In season" so the $$ isn't going to be cheap.

I haven't been on the new one but since it's new that should probably be on top of your list for that reason alone. My top coasters:

Rolling Thunder (I'm a old school coaster fan)
Kingda Ka
Medusa
Nitro
Batman/Chiller/Scream Machine
Runaway Train (Hey, I like it! :P )
