First, travel to New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure. You may have visited before … but now the post-Covid situation works differently. From booking arrival times to arranging vehicle lines and ordering food in the park, we’ll show you a new protocol for safe enjoyment. Plus, get a preview of their latest ride-the tallest, longest, and fastest single-rail coaster in the world. Then head north to Westchester and board the Yonkers iFly. The brave flyer is a wind-blown simulator tunnel up to 150mph, where you can feel the thrill of skydiving without risk.
What would happen in summer without a little adventure? Embark on a Jurassic-style expedition and encounter the roaring animatronic dinosaurs that move in the woods! Field Station: Located in Overpeck Park, Bergen County, the dinosaurs have more than 30 live shows a day, as well as games and activities for kids and adults. Paleontologists make sure the exhibits are accurate, and Broadway producers make sure the experience is thrilling, educational and enjoyable. Then go back in time with the only steam locomotive and riverboat connection in the country. Essex steam trains and riverboats travel through the beautiful wetlands of Connecticut. Riders can learn to operate steam locomotives and even whistle!
To enjoy the outdoors while enjoying the challenge, go to the Adventure Park on Long Island. Treetop Park in Wheatley Heights with a variety of rope courses and over 20 ziplines. The park has 185 different platforms, allowing visitors to experience the beauty of nature. Then return to Manhattan for the immersive Van Gogh. Here, visitors can connect with art in new ways. The exhibition allows people to “step into” Van Gogh’s paintings using projection screens, theatrical storytelling, and animation.
And if you have the courage, you can take a walk in the Hudson Yards on the edge, the tallest outdoor skydeck in the Western Hemisphere. Amazing views and see-through floors create an exhilarating experience. In addition, make a short road trip to the Edge of the Woods to feel the rush of river rafting in Delaware Water Gap.
We hope you will join us at the Destination Summer this Saturday, May 22nd at 7pm. ABC7NY only.
