JACKSON, N.J. (1010 WINS) — Power has been restored to Six Flags Great Adventure following an outage Saturday afternoon.

“We did unload all of the rides and then began the process of completing all of our safety checks to reopen the rides,” Spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher told 1010 WINS. “From what I understand, most of the rides were reopened within half an hour, and then everything was reopened within an hour,” she added.

She also noted that the back up generators for the electric fences used in their safari section activated immediately when the main power went out.

No one was hurt during the outage, which affected the entire theme park briefly around 1:22 p.m.
