STATE — Six Flags Great Adventure will host roller coaster enthusiasts from The Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain during their “Le Monstre Bash” tour June 8. Their annual North America trip will bring 54 of its members to the Jackson theme park to ride 11 adrenaline-pumping roller coasters.
The Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain is a non-profit organization. Andy Hine, club chairman, founded the group in 1988 as a way for people who shared his passion for roller coasters to come together. Today, the club has grown to include more than 1,200 members from 15 different countries.
Trip attendees will spend two weeks in the U.S. and plan to ride from 80 to 100 different roller coasters along the East Coast and into Canada. According to Hine, members are excited to test the internationally-recognized El Toro, Nitro and Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure. All three, along with Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom which will open soon, recently ranked on USA Today’s top 10 thrill rides list for 2014.
Members recently visited Six Flags Over Georgia outside Atlanta, and will journey to LaRonde in Montreal and more than six other theme parks during their visit.
